JDM_DOHC_SiR I pulled out some pics of your car you posted backa few pages (the black one). What is that cool rear graphite brace you have on your car? I did see how you mounted your Pal camber link setup. If I did it that way I would have a little more adjustments.

wyd,

I looked for this before. Maybe someone can help us fill out the list more and make sure this is 100% correct. The following are the only settings I was able to find so I saved them as a text file on my pc :

Castor Blocks
=====================
7* for the Xenon ones
5* for the Square ones
5* for the stock R1/2/3 ones
3* for the optional Alex ones

Rear Hubs
=====================
1* For the Xenon ones

Guys,

Thought i should let you know i'll be looking in alittle less often now as i have sold my R3

New ride is a Pro4 not sure if it'll be better but i think it'll suit my style of driving abit better.

But i can honestly say i've enjoyed my R3

Steve Wang

He had a pretty good showing 5th over all.... but you can tell that he was lacking in the Motor and Battery department.. but he can really drive

Do you or Steve know what the difference from R3 to CE R3 is? I guess I want to know what parts I will need to plan on purchasing to make my car a "CE".

my last conversation with Alex is that the parts are available separately, so I'll check with them again since they are probably busy at the moment between the Modified nationals that just finished and the sportsman nationals that's coming up. By the way, I think Kitazawa did well in the A finishing 7th overall.

7th..?? I guess they broke the the points down.??? I had him at 5~6th place if you do the points.??
and it was kind of funny that he was not running a R3 ... but a Xenon R2
