I dont he will with the market drying up on parts. I had a prototype chassis around this time last year but i never saw it go up for sale. You could contact him and ask for one. R2 is very fast just dont hit stuff.

Re: Spec-R S1/R1 suspension pivot balls (for A-arm hinge mounts):

Having a hard time finding these things; everybody seems to be "out-of-stock". Part # SPR-S1P402 (S1) or SPR-R1A111 (R1). I've tried Spec-R's Web site, Reflex Racing, TQ Racing, and even some Asian and overseas places.

Is there *any* other car that uses these that would work for my car?

Tamiya and Xray uses these. TQRCRACING has these available from Yeah Racing. 10 for $4.50

My top arm on the rear keeps popping off, Mostly when I bump something, but sometimes just on bumpy sections of track when the arm is at full travel (the arm hits on the c-hub).

I have tried changing the ball cup to the tamiya type, as well as changing the ball, but I keep having the same problem and it keeps ending my races. Any ideas?

you could try xray ones. they fit REALLLY tight. but still quite smooth. you would of course need xray ballcups and studs for t2/3/4.
quite more expensive than tamiya, but they dont pop off.

Anyone know a compatible chassis for ordering a set of bearings for either an r1 or r2? Rather than just getting individual bearings

Bocabearings.com has several complete sets from 30.00 to 300.00 depending on what level of bearings you want.

TQRCRACING carries bulk bearings that would be much cheaper than buying a pre-made set of bearings.

Ok, thanks guys. I was just looking for something simple, but I can certainly research sizes and order then individually. Thanks for responses
