I doubt you can use the R2 sterring bellcracks since the R3 steering posts are spaced pretty close together. Best bet is the Pal steering rack.

Thanks!

Hey guys... for a high bite carpet track, what tires do you guys recommend to work well with the R3's?

The Losi guys are running TRC Cyan's and Magenta's...What BRAND seem to work the best with the Alex cars?

Thanks!!

Either Jaco and Parma. The standard compunds work well. Plaid fronts and purple rears or D. Pink rears and Cyan fronts.

Not sure if your R3 has the Pal type hubs but running 28mm foams has its issues with the stock front/rear hubs. Just an FYI.

Still love my car and have NO plans on exchanging it for any other brand for the next 12 months..

Just because this thread has slowed down is not the same as the car has .. just the same people writing in here all the time and when they can't get a new CUDA every year as they have been used to .. the start to complain

If the prices is right you will get a great car that can handle as well as any other cars out there.

Claus
Yup, we are still going to stock the parts for the car as much as we can

An alloy center shaft mount would help the drive train to be much more reliable..
