R&D isn't currently planned until after combat, so there is a long way to go and any speculation is only very tentative. I would expect, though, that allowing R&D to overcome race limitations isn't something that would be easy, and I haven't heard of any plans to do so. No amount of research is going to help you get a Hutt inside a fighter-sized cockpit.
I dare you to make less sense.
Are you a newbie, or do you have access to newbies?
