hello Jan....er uh TC3
alot of us use the HPI #2 piston, I believe it has (2)1.1mm holes. with 30-40wt oil, The new Rayspeed pistons look interesting also.

Congradulations on the R2 purchase, this is a very quick car, you will see

the 1.1 pistions are a very good choise with the long span arms...but I prefer the 1.2 drilled pistions and heavier Oil..

Sure can just make sure you have a good pair of Needle nose pliers just be careful with the tabs on the end of the bevel gear...

When putting the bevel gears in I would often strugle, I carefully cut a slight angle on the little notches, and I mean VERY slight, so they can slide in just a little easier, instead odf the flat surfaces just pressing against each other, notches still hold it in firmly and it makes it an awful lot easier to get in.

Can you compare the axles on the R2 to the axles on your SD. I think we might be running the same stuff as the SD is except for the diameter of the front axle is 6 rather than 5. If the axles are the same length, we can benefit by going to a larger front bearing (5x10 rather than 6x10) which should last longer... and Square makes titanium axles

The car shares other parts from Yokomo, lets pray this is one of them.

Yes... I've already thought about it... get back to you soon on the axles.

I think just about all of us are running the HPI #2 pistons, but it sounds like we are all running different hole sizes. RBF with 1.1, I'm running 1.15, and JDM 1.2

Tip on drilling them out, dont do it with an electric drill, get a small hand drill and slowly drill the holes. You dont want to twist at them once the drill is through either, just back it off otherwise you'll distort the hole.

Congrats on the purchase First thing, get the aluminum center shaft holders, the car is rough on spur gears, but these will help keep everything true and in line.
