that's not the one I was talking about. I'm j/k, I don't want it to look like I'm bashing other brands of cars...

we're all on a roll today. I don't tell my wife anything about my hobby, she buys shoes and slip covers for the sofa and I keep my mouth shut... same rules for her.

ive spent about $800 on my R3. spares parts, aluminum hopups, Ti stuff etc.. if i was to ever sell it.. it'd go up for about $450.

just make sure if you purchase an R2/R3 that it has the aluminum shaft holders.. those are THE MOST IMPORTANT hopups to have.

Trust me, the wives know what we spend...well, maybe...

I don't think I would spend as much for a sedan again like I did with my cuda. I've got almost digits in mine. I still have my yoke and was kinda happy with that. I'd prolly cry to sell mine for the loss I'd take...I ran is twice outside last summer but ran carpet all season.

I think is how i'm feeling

3rd in A main first time out !! OK it's where i normally come but i was about 0.45sec a lap of the TQ runners which took me about 6months of set-up to run those times with my yokomo !!

It' an indoor carpet track and i ain't got roll bars or the short arms on it yet (there in the post)

I need them bad,cars only fault was slow rotation round the corners

Can i get alloy steering hubs any where.Specific R3 ones with the inner mounting holes for the steering links as i broke 1 of the HARDENED set i had bought to brittle i feel as took out part of the derlain outdrive too

Will post more in the morning link my set-up etc. !!

I'm very happy
