Thanks dave...

im building my R2 now and was thinking of putting in the pal hubs, anyway, will just stick to the stock set-up first...

any building tips? for today, i was just able to prep my chassis, upper deck, and shock towers, and build the drive shafts... tom, hopefully, the rest of the car...

what shock oils do you use? do you always have the same oil in front and rear? any suggestions with regards the springs, if im running on a bumpy track, with low traction?

The Squat dry bearings actually had more oil in them than my Acer bearings did, I didn't know why they had the "dry" name...

The stock kit springs will work just fine for your set up...also try 35w all the way around with a HPI#2 pistion or drill the stock ones out to 1.2mm and make sure you keep the long arm set up since it`s a bumpy/dusty low tracking track

For setups, check out the Alex USA site, and take a look at the SoCal no swaybar setup, works pretty well on all of the tracks I've driven it on, definately a good starting point.

I'd start with kit setup, it's pretty good. And go with JDM's shock suggestions, he should know


Been at the club again tonight, a nice 3rd on the grid and a safe 3rd at the end of the A final, quite an uneventful night, but atleast my mini pins are getting worn in so getting grip finaly.

i wanted to drill out the pistons to 1,2mm, but mine are allready 1,2mm
i could just put the 1,2mm drill into the hole without removing any material
maybe u mean the smaller stock pistons, because the kit comes with 2 different

I actually found the HPI pistons closer to 1.15, that's what I've been drilling all of my pistons out to. I also just ran 40wt front and back, never switched. Guess I've been running heavier dampening with my setup.

Really your Triox came with the 1.2mm pistons..?
