Dave it is a nice idea and a great name to.

I did check the fit of the gears in the holders. They were smooth in both whether it was the aluminum ones or the plastic ones. after building aprrox 100 cars over the years this is one of the weird things.

Fromt the first time I had the car as a rolling chassis with the stock components it was as free as my TC3 after months of work on it. I have it stock again and breaking the driveline in now with an oold motor I have and have it running on my T-30. It is spinning very free right now and pretty quiet to. Tonight the radio gear goes in and get it ready to run for Saturday.

It would be awesome if you could post your FAQ/tips somewhere. Saves you a lot time and repost of the same info over and over again.

Well broke in my trans a little today. Probably have 20 minutes or so on it at 5 volts with a silver Tamiya motor. It is super smooth with absolutely no rough spots. It is very smooth and I very happy with it. Can't ask for anymore than that. Spins free and smooth. Resonably quite to.

Yep this Bumper has been out for about 5 months and it weights 9gm

Dave
will that bumper and brace fit the R2???.
Is that available thru SpeedTech???
I'm using the Tc3 black bumper myself , the holes are a little off from the body posts, but it still works.
Someone back a reply or two mentioned an xray bumper, does it have the same distance between body posts as the R2 or are they off just a bit like the TC bumper/??

Thanks guys

That would be nice. If the ALex site was updated and had its own forum on it that site would be alot better.
