I'll see what I can do...I thought that the shims for under the front Aarm mounts adjust caster... am I way off here in my thinking?

Ron,

Sent you a PM.

Worst case, I could probably have my buddy make me a couple of pairs using the one set I have as a guide... should I have him make several sets, as once the setup is done, it's simply loading and unloading the machine... Is there any call for more sets?

Thanks Alvin... I'm going to try your suggestion... It looks like tc3 front carriers might possibly work as well...

Try the TC4 C-hub.. it has a little more material around the lower mount hole and you can use the MR4 SD or TC front knuckle also.. Rear the Pro4 Hub works too

Did anyone tested the aluminium outdrives, yet? I can´t believe that no one of you drive his car anymore.

Default Barracuda R3 CE anygood?

hi all,
was wondering if any of you have the CE running and what are your thoughts? Is it worth my while to get the CE parts and bolt them into my R3 or should i wait for an R4 if they ever plan on producing one
cheers.

Good luck trying to get the CE parts because if you don"t register the car with ALEX you wont get spares .... . . I tried to order the upper deck and they pretty much told me if I don"t have one I will not be able to get it.... or unless I knew someone that had one.??

thanks for your lightening fast response
I'm just wondering if this is a good car or not and if it's worth my while to buy one I really like my R3 and with the set up you gave me, it handles like a dream. I'm tempted to get the CE to see if it can be even better
have you ever driven the CE? how was it?
cheers mate.

Me I have made my own R3CE.. it handles very well but "I think" that the Chassis needs to have a few thing changed but thats just me if you like the regular R3...the CE is one step better with the Small style hubs and most of the option parts with the kit
Just hit up Steve"W" at Speedtech and he should be able to assist you if he can

Ordered the yokomo shock caps for my R2 from Steve on Friday, so hopefully they will arrive late this week. The car went very well with the box stock setup on Dave I havnt even tried it with my front diff in the car yet!

What's the procedure for filling the shocks when you use the bleeder caps??

What is the differences in the CE edition R3?

Thanks guys!
