Thanks Alvin. Appreciate those pics. When you mounted your Pal mounts did you just use a long srew to mount it to the topdeck? Looks like you did. The pics should help me a ton to put mine together.

There is a better way of mounting the drop down mounts so you can have more roll center adjustments..
I"ll post a pick up later

ALright guys, tommorow i'm heading for Key West, I just wanna say thx for the help on the R3. A couple more questions... A thing that I gotta get is aluminum steering rack, what else? And I think i'll get the Red R3.... And I was wondering if BMI will sell the R3 chassis with the parts for the car like they do with the factory team tc3, j/w thanks! Take care guys have an awesome week! Besure to check out the movie, The Grudge, a.k.a Ju-On I cried watching it. I saw the Jap version not the U.S later!

I have all 3 and it really depends on what surface you will be running on.. if it"s high grip then I would count out the EVO4 the chassis is not that stiff ..... and for the Pro4... it has a pretty good drive train out of the box and need very little work...

but the Cuda is a Brick Sh!t house... AKA its built like a Tank and is very hard to break parts! and works well on almost any track surface...... Med~High grip is its happy area

I take it that you like the R3 Lol... Well, the Pro 4 Has won lots of stuff by Hara IDK yet. BOth shaft, BOth have aluminum, around same price, I think the pro is cheaper. Hmm... WHat do u guys think? P4 or R3?

ill give ya a hint... when you ask this in the Alex forum, you will probably get biased answers!!!!

to be honest, i like them both... but i would look at parts availability in your area... if they have Pro 4 parts on the wall, get it. if they dont have parts for either car, id probably go with the R3, mainly cause like Dave says, its tough to break! you will need to carry your own spares, but you might have to carry them no matter what car you run.

World Championships
RCZONE quote ...

"Alex Racing - Represented by Hideo Kitazawa, this might be the big surprise in the ISTC class. Hideo finished second only to Masami but ahead of all the other top drivers at the official warm-up, a very good indication of what he's capable of! The Barracuda chassis has proven itself many times already, especially in Asia. The continuous development of the platform shows that Alex Racing are very serious and it would be really nice to see them getting a reward in form of a good result in Florida."
