IT's basically what I'm working on right now,, I'm going to be using the new R2 Chassis with the newer drive shaft supports (the ones that have 2 bearings a KAI upper deck with TC3 style steering and a few other tricks that I will show you all pic's of when I'm finished..

The colors for the R2 are as follows
BLUE
RED
PINK
PURPLE

and the street price goes for about 33000Yen ... But most shops are on a order per need basis'
so I would say in the 35000Yen range after shipping and Tax..

But I have seen one place that has a advertisement for 31980..Yen but they never have any in stock or anything for that matter

As for the way bars on the PAL arms.... I run them backwards on the front and rear... In other words I use the front and rear shock mounts to mount the sway bars and I use Yokomo MR-4 Mount stays... but for the Bar itself.. I use a 1.4mm in the front and a 1.2mm in the rear... ...But you say your running Oval...hmm I would use a 1.6 and a 1.8 if you can get them.. and as for the Aluminum shafts on the motor mounts.. They are all hollow shafts ....but the Square one is solid.. but it doesn't weight more than the Alex OneWay Carbon shaft... not much of a difference

Sure does... It just takes the place of the clip that goes over the smaller bevel gear ...I have allready ordered repacements for my R1.5 project .... these look to be a soulution to the new R2 because they haven't made motor mount. shaft supports yet.. due to the fact that the motor mount is further forward
