My SD was very off balanced, the battery side was much heavier than all of the electronics, is the R2 the same way?

Default KO RACER

Macky mentioned that you run your R2 on carpet with foams. I have a few questions:

Do you run it stock? How do you do against the other cars?
Do foam tires fit "WITHOUT" modifcations? TRC 26mm and Jaco 28mm.

I have just yet to see one of these cars and am a little uncertain about it. Looks awesome, but........ Please let me know your thoughts.

PS: I think I bought a Pro 3 from you a while back.....

How do you do against the other cars?****** I ran very well for being off for a good while. the cars there where tc3,yoko,mission,x-ray

Do foam tires fit "WITHOUT" modifcations? TRC 26mm and Jaco 28mm.********** I dont know about the 26mm but the 28's that i ran hit the hubs . i now use excel hubs and i have no problems at all.
there is one guy that runs a R2 and 28's but he uses spacers
and i tried that and lost a wheel during a heat so i dont suggest it.

I have just yet to see one of these cars and am a little uncertain about it. Looks awesome, but........ Please let me know your thoughts.********* I really like this car and think it will hang with anyhting out there. very durable and if built right the drivetrain is super free.


PS: I think I bought a Pro 3 from you a while back************yeah that has been awhile . i bought your old xxxs LOL.....

In front of the battries works for me.
The R2 is very well balanced right/left fore/aft, that prolly helps to make it so easy to tune

So what does one need Joseph?

R2 kit
PAL drive system
Excel rear hubs (foam tires)

Does it come with dual diffs? If not, one would need a front diff also.

1) Yes
2) Yes and no not really nessisary ...but makes the drive train stronger
3) Speedway PAL/EXCEL hubs front and rear to clear the foams..also you`ll need the upper deck tie rod addaptor to use the hubs now too...but good luck getting a set for about a month..they are on back order in Japan


And the kit comes with a rear diff and a front one way...

I`ll let Ko Racer answer the rest of your Questions
