LOL

Forgot i said about moving it on, on here too ............. i was made a real good offer for it at the regional race i said about but said no and i could have bought a new Pro4 and tricked it right up on the money

Think i might have just been trying to get out of being expected to do well, Each time i get a car sorted lately i've shifted it on and got something new to try to work with and i'm wondering if this is just so if it don't go so well i can use the " well it's new and i'm working on it" to excuse myself from doing bad.

Well i've decied to take it on the chin if it don't go so well this winter. I'm sticking to the cuda at least until the new year............... so lets hope i don't have to many bad days please

Hi all

I'm thinking of getting an R3S or a Triox x-plosion as they are now here in the UK. Which one would be better to get as they are very similar

Thanks

R3S all the way they are not as similar as you'd think and the Triox in my opinion is quiet a way behind the R3.

Better still get an R3 from speedtech and save your self some pennies ...

Oh if your going to be using it with foams you NEED the PAL hubs or the new Alex ones if you can get hold of them ..........

If i can help further just ask and since ur uk if you want a chat by phone on the car just pm me and i'll give you a phone number for me

Thanks Merciless

I'll be running on polished wood down in sunny Kent.

Have you had any experience with setups on wood?

Tim

I've not played on wood. But i'd guess you'll be using rubber tyres so so can stick with the standard hubs etc.

The standard "long" wishbones will probably work very well on that low grip surface too

I would suggest buying yokomo bladdered shock caps when you get the kit to as the std. shocks are the cars worse feature

Other than that spring it really light and use a very light shock oil

I'd suggest 30wt oil and cause i'm using yokomo springs i'd start with the hot yellow all round

But i believe there are some guys running the Triox on that surface so maybe you can try and get some set-up info from them ??

Mine there was all guess work

You might take a look on the uk Rccrap forums theres a triox section on there

Hi Guys,

I apologize for the delay on this next Alex shipment, but we should be receiving a new shipment next week.

I have been phoning round for availability and it seems Kevs racing bits stock them which is about a 30 min drive.
Can you suggest some good spares to carry?

the only thing i have ever broken on my r2 are rear hubs and 1 front c hub o and a fron and rear wishbone (but that was from being hit by a 8x1 when the marshal put my car back onto the straight without looking) and possibly some of the small bevel gears. Other than that therews noty much breaks on the car

I'd suggest front c-hubs only unless your real heavy crashing in which case you might take out the diff out drives to

TAKE YOUR TIME BUILDING IT AND YOU'LL HAVE A GREAT CAR

GET YOKOMO BLADDERED SHOCK CAPS WHEN YOU BUY THE CAR (there a must have, in my opinion not worth building the stock shocks without them !!!)

Ah little help here, I've been thinking about getting belt (TRF or MI2) or stay with shaft, i've got a TC3. If I were to get shaft i'd either get the R3 or... Pro4.. Which one should I get? I know that the belts snap and loosen over time but i'm going to be racing with these car's only, mostly for show. Any tips would be greatful thanks!
