Haven't checked in here in awhile (but believe me I read this thread every day ) Looks like everything is good with Dave in charge of everything here

I spoke with the owner of Xenon awhile back about what they are producing for the Alex Car, he is being tight lip about it right now, but he did mention they are trying to release a conversion kit that will allow for the use of suspension components from other cars (for example, light weight suspension kit from Tamiya) We'll see if it actually make it to production after the IFMAR Worlds.

Next shipment of Alex Racing parts should be aboue 1-2 weeks away

Looks like He talked with you about the Cough Cough "BELT Conversion" for the Cough Cough Barracuda

But as far as it being done in time.. for the Worlds..??? I doubt it... PAL is still in the design stange...but it looks as if they have some good things in the works

-Dave

Default faster corner speed..

hi there... I think my R2 cornering speed is much slower than ex- pro 4.. any idea on how to gain that speed... my setting is basically box stock except the
front upper shock mount is hole no. 2 from outside,
rear-no. 3 from outside.
Front shock oil is 40w and rear is 30w, 2 hole piston,
stock spring all round.
droop- F=6mm R=5mm. Camber- F=1deg R=1.5deg

I race on outdoor asphalt, technical inside with high speed sweeper.

hope you guys can help me on this..

cheers...

You dont mention weather you have tried the mid span arm set, if you havent then this would be a good investment and will go quite a way to gaining that elusive corner speed through the infield sections

Keep plugging away, it will be quicker

Came across another online website (rcmart.com) that sells Cuda parts. They don't have everything but at least they stock the stuff that commonly breaks. Guess it is an alternative if you live in that part of the world(HK).
