OK I just found out the deal with the Xenon Belt conversion... ... The design has been finished by "PAL"... but there was no time to get a couple of prototypes built up before the worlds.. So Xenon has dropped the Belt Barracuda ...Sorry for the bad news guys...

Not your fault .. but we'll expect more accurate info from you in the future .. JK

So PAL is talking up the design .. then we could expect a Belt conversion ?

Umm OK

Anyways PAL has always been behind "ALL" Xenons conversion hits and they will not produce any belt conversions... the R4 seems to be right around the corner..?? ....who knows..

Oh damn that means I will be buying another Cuda R4 down the road. Hope when they make it that alot of my R2 and R3 stuff fits as I have a ton of stuff for the Cuda's.

I would think the R4 would have the new Alex racing low profile hubs and a maybe a few other minor changes like the steering rack!!!

the more i look at the belt conversion, the more it reminds me of the Yok MR4TC SP gen. It wasn't a pleasant memory
IF there is an R4, hope it stays shaft.

All you describe looks like the R3S ..
I would like to see something like more steering throw and maybe both up'n down stops -

Anyway it comes out I'm proberly going to get me the R4 when it comes out and right now I can't figure out if I "need" a black R3S

Yes more steering throw is a must have!!!!!!!!!! and also the ability to run 28mm wide tires would also be nice so I can run foam tires easily!!!!!!!! I would also want it to be shaft drive as well. I think the R3 setup of the shaft drive is very free and super smooth so I would want that to stay as well. I'm also a fan of the way the A arms are mounted to the chassis thru the pillow balls and uses no hinge pins.

Hi guys,

Been out running my TrioX today (been too long ), and I was messing around with the setup. I was playing around trying to dial out the understeer, and I found that by standing up the front shocks more, I got more steering. Is this normal?????
Would this mean that if I drop the rear shcoks down, I would get more steering, b/c I still get abit of understeer which is hampering me abit.

Thanks for the help guys

Dan
