OOH GOLD, me want

Hmm interesting, looks a bit bulky though. My spur seems to be running good at the moment, allow shaft holder upfront aswell as in the back now. Should be getting some new spurs in a couple weeks too, something to help with meshing when using the normal drive shaft

check this out if you were thinking about TC3 style steering too

Thats funny because most tc-3 guys are looking to get rid of that style and swap in the ntc-3 steering.But onto the radio gear stuff,I do own some small(well at least i thought it was)radio gear,GM V12,GT7,Cyclone,LRP Quantum Comp.,Airtronics mirco fm receivers,a few novak xxtra's that should be small enough,and i do own a few other "new" touring cars that i would consider top of the line TC's that have more room for your radio system.

so Ko Racer/ Randman...and who ever else has these Web R2`s here is a Idea for you all to make the rear of the car more Stiff

-Dave

Graphite arms too never seen that before. Are there holes on both sides of the car for posts?

The only down side to doing that, is I wont be able to find any posts in orange!

I haven`t tried the one peice one yet but I know that my buddy is still workiing on it....still flexs in a crash to much is what he says but on my PAL Cuda with the Kai chassis...I think that it makes a huge differance ....I think that it would work well for you Joseph on Carpet

and as far as EXCEL or FLAP making a chassis for the Web R2... ??? I don`t know...what I do know is that PAL is mailing a 3mm USA Carbon chassis for the Web R2 that should be aout around the same time as the Web drive System

It's cool to know that there are going to be some aftermarket parts made for the Web Edition, I didn't think there would be any because at the most, 100 will sell.
