There are many more after market parts available than listed in your doc. I dont know of anybody thats tried them all. There must be at least 6 alternative chassis to the car. I have the 3 racing one and its a bit stiffer and goes great on the fast flowing tracks but I use the standard one for tight tracks.

I suggest you list them all and ask people to comment on them if they have used them and if they are worth the extra cash or just bling

Who makes parts for the RRR?

KFactory
Kawahara
3racing
East
Shimu (Kyosho)
Square

Who have i missed? There must be loads of others

Yeah, but for this project, I'm only listing things that we've actually tried that's proven to improve the performance of the car. It's not about listing all the hop-ups.

I am building a second WC-X to keep as a spare car when I go racing.

I know pretty much all the upgrades I would like to replicate on the 2nd car. I am thinking however, if I should build this one with another K-Factory Chassis or whether to go for the VZW214 chassis?

I have not done too much testing with the K-Factory chassis on my 1st car, but so far I would say I am very pleased.

The 1st car has an OS 5P TZ .12 and hope to install the Sirio EVO III for the new car.

Any suggestions?

It really depends on how you want to use the spare. Either as real spare or a second car to play around with that could be a spare if need be.

I would want an exact duplicate of my primary, so that the car would handle and perform exactly like the primary. It would really throw me off if the car turned in more or less - or drifted more or less - or the engine powerband were different - but that's just me.

What's the advantage of extending the zip tie from the gas tank lid to the rear shock tower???

I agree. I'm trying to have both of my cars set-up the same way. 2 different manufacturers of course.

It's so incredibly easy to open the tank lid from the rear hole. I just tried it this past weekend and if I would have know it was that great, I would have done it from day 1.

Do you cut out two holes in the rear window, or just one??

I have one hole in the rear. Check out this pic of Rob's body. He has the zip tie setup as well.

Is the VoneRRR Evo just a step up from the Regular kit...and the WE would be pretty much highest in versions right? I checked the site and I like the features it possess.

Yes, the Evo is an upgrade of the regular kit. The WCE is the earlier upgrade of the kit, which they so happened to release as the WCE. I'm starting to look at it as two different upgrade paths - kind of like a split in the gene pool. I'm not quite sure how to compare the Evo to the WCE at the moment.

There are some really nice parts that are coming out for the Evo, which some of us are going to put on our WCE. Because the parts are interchangeable between the models, it's just a matter of what you want to start with.
