Saw one of these cars for the first time last weekend at our local carpet track. It's one of the nicest looking cars I've seen. Even the big boys were impressed.

Smile Looks like the...

Servo mount location on the 2 speed chassis has been moved forward a little bit say 3~5mm..
Any different between the ALEX driver one and the stock one??
Take a closer look between the servo mounts and there location and you'll see what I mean ..also it looks like Alex Racing has some tricks up there sleeve too.. look at the location of the A-arm mounts there is 4 new holes front & rear.. hmmmm

Talking

2 main chassis SVRO & BATTERY moved !

How much did they move the battery ..?? I know on the Kia Chassis the moved it 4mm towards the shaft...and on the Flap Chassis they moved the battery in 2~3mm and forward about 2~3mm...

It would be nice to see a picyure of the two Chassis on top of each other to get a comparison

Thanks

so i guess the Final Drive Ratio for the 2 speed is just suitable for stock gearing....would there be optional gearing option on the R2??
By the way how do u guys adjust the toe-in using the offset ball head

thanks
