what is the best way of sealing the chassis etc?

i know it tells you on alexracing site but when ever i try it, the glue always runs down the side of the chassis ?(i mean onto the top or bottom..not where its meant to be )..so how do you guys seal your chassis' etc..successfully?

I got normal CA super glue that comes in a little tub with a brush built into the cap. It's thin enough that it flows a bit and the brush makes doing a neat job a lot easier. You could do the same with a cotton bud stick but may get a few white fliffy bits stuck on the edge of your chassis.

Just remember not to clean out your ears with one just after gluing the edge of your chassis

Default I would just like to express something:

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!!!!
I've never ever felt such a free drive train after the whole running in process and cleaning the bearings, the first time i pushed the car just felt as if there was bugger-all resistance and rolled a mile!!!
I work in this industry and see many, many racers cars and all i can say is that the Barracuda is free. one of the best! i can confidently say that apart from one corally assasin that i've seen, which felt freer from memory (coupled with it being belt drive, which is amazing for belt) out of the box with little or no work (apart from shimming and the bearing clean) it's THE free-est drive train i've seen!
Now Dave, how can i make it freeer and whip the corally's ass?? I have noticed that the knuckles are squeezing the bearings more than i like along with the alloy shaft holders and i will enlarge the hole so that the bearings aren't buckled, but apart from that, any other tips?
Cheers

Great news.!! Glad the advice I gave you worked..now that you have that done...I see you have found one more are to work on...... now on to the next tip

it involves a file and some sandpaper to the bevel gear on the area where it rests on the bearings for the bevel gear there should only be a slight ammount of matterial that should be removed from this area to free up some of the pressure that the bevel gear has when it is in the bearings

I`ll post a picture a bit later of a new bevel gear vs a modified gear so you can see the difference

Trust me this will free it up a bit more and more than likely make the drive train just a little bit more quiet

Most of the R2 parts and hopups fit the R3 ... however there are few ones that are unique to the particular model

If you want to check about any item in particular ... post here and someone will definitely help you out
