Will the new R2 include the 2 Speed with the kit?

JDM: Hmmm... But from those pics of Alex website about R2, I can't find any 2-speed installed??!! (Under "new products" of www.alex.ne.jp) This really questioned me... Do you notice this?

Talking So kits have them and some don't

It's an Option from Alex Racing if you want the 2 speed or not I think that it's only about 2000 Yen more for the 2 speed parts

Default R2 arrived HK!!!

I found two R2 have been arrived HK last night. (I think they are hand-carried through planes, not through distributor) Here are the details:

- approx. $2400 HKD (1USD=8HKD)
- very narrow chasis
- rear bulkhead moved backward in order to fit for the 2-speed
- no 2-speed included however...
- new designed centre shaft holders, not aluminium, but in harder materials like those harden A-arms... No more in a V-shaped liked the R1, but in a 'mountain-shaped'! And run in dual-bearings!!
- new design A-arms, hard materials.
- two holes on the knuckle arms, one more in front of the originals...
- 'longer' upper chasis in order to fit the new position of the rear bulkhead
- included threaded shocks...

Here are what I discovered after opening the box... Thanks for the shop-keepers!

Attractive??
