First problem is the ball studs for the upper link, Which are you using??I tried TC3 but they just pull straight out again easy
Just ordered Pro4 one's to try them ! can you tell me if they'll be a better fit ?? (this is into the std. cuda knuckles)

Got my bulkheads machined just got to pick them up tonight !!

Thought for the trial run i'd just cut the tops of my cuda C-Hubs to save getting TC3 ones buit may be using both TC3 C-Hubs and Hubs is the answer ??

Got 1 rear hub ordered them but didn't reliese there sold as 1 rear and 1 front in a pack marketing people i hate them !!

Associated and HPI are standard ball studs and so the same (unless pro4 has changed that). You want Yokomo ball cups and studs. They are metric like the Cudas.

Hey Guys,

I race a xxx-s gp and I am thinking of getting an R3. I browsed the Speedtech web site for parts and all I see is R2 parts. I'm not too familiar with the car. Are the parts of the R2 interchangeable with the R3? What are the common problems with the car? What normally breaks during races if there is contact with the boards or other cars? Is Speedtech the only place to go for parts? What's the deal? Thanks.

PSI Racer...
answers to some of your questions.

#1. you cant go wrong with this car.
#2. a lot of the R2 parts are compatible with the R3. slight differences between the R2 and R3 are:
- steering mechanism
- rear uprights
- motor mount
- chassis type (glitter.. no glitter.) new R3 non glitter chassis is coming out real soon. plus a BMI chassis also.

common problems? the only problem i have is the little screw underneath the front C-hub. i lose those suckers a lot. a hard hit... it'll come loose.

contact with boards.. im always in contact with them..and the car is VERY durable.

for parts, you cant go wrong with speedtech. he has everything you'll need, if not he special orders it. service is fast and you can always get a hold of him. i can give you his home number if you want! (just kidding steve! ) speedtech is the primary distributor for alex racing here in the united states.

any other questions, all these guys will gladly help you out.. me too

Hmm,
That's weird, I don't have that problem. My 4-40 ballstuds fit just fine in the alex knuckles. Make sure to use new knuckles since 4-40 will strip the 3mm tapped holes. I also used the accociated flanged tube bushing in the associated castor blocks. The 3mm hardware does not fit through the associated flanged tubes.

but what are you using for the Rear hubs..?

Hi Dave,
I'm still using the stock hubs. I'm considering cutting them down or drilling new holes.

Any idea if the Yok or Pro4 rear hubs will fit with little or no mods?
