Hi guys,

When you run the R2 without the gear covers, does the top deck have to bend around the steering posts?? It does on mine, and I'm not to sure if its ok like that or what.

Cheers

No...no...no... that's not suppose to happen... I think ,when you run without the diff cover, the steering post should be replaced to the shorter one.. they sell it as option...

Yep there's a shorter post set made exactly for this reason
Or you could grind down your old posts but thats a hassle and then you can't go back to running covers if needed.

Different shell to your trademark scheme Dave?
simple but effective still shows up well in the dark

The track looks nice there, wish I could get over to Japan and race, I'll have to settle for some Florida racing instead around x-mas time possibly

Default General Question

Guys do the diff covers come with the R3?

And do the R2 arms fit the R3?

What are the part numbers for the Fr and Rr suspension arms and diff covers(if inlcuded in kit).

Thanks for your time.

-Luie

No, you don't get diff covers with the R3, they won't fit the newer style bulkheads without some modification.
Just run without them, unless you find you're having serious problems of messing up gear due to small stones. I've run in barely swept car parks and never had a bad problem without the covers. You'll loose a few gears every now and again but not a lot.

The suspension arms are the same, find parts numbers on speedtechrc.com

I belive that Speedtech can get them since he is a Dealer for Xenon and PAL.... E-mail Steve to find out... it might take 2 weeks to get the parts that you want.. but He should be able to get them..
