Think your philosophy is fair. Spend on upgrades within ones means if it one wants. It is a compormoise between durability, weight, preformance (and bling ).

One question though to everyone, if you strengthen parts of your car with alu or titatium etc...., will that not change the breakage point to another part of the car, or worse still create damage to chassis or engine. Kinda like not have a crumple zone?

Well, you can't have everything.. The whole point of having some of these stronger parts (aluminum) is to survive a crash and finish the race - even if it means some other parts get damaged as you have stated - although I've never experienced this personally. As I've gotten better at driving, I don't damage the car as much and seem to avoid a lot of accidents. That doesn't mean that someone won't hit me first.

i agree with you rmdhawaii.There should be a balance between performance and durability.Moreover you cannot predict what can happen in a race no matter how good driver someone is.

Hey fritzD! What do you think?

fritzD is our resident applied physicis major. If anybody knows the answer to the question, he does.
Throtle Servo mounting on the RRR and RRR evo? From what I learned it is not really the how low the center of mass/gravity the affects the handling or performance of the car. It is how closer the center of mass to the center line of the car "line of symmetry of the car" I guess that's why they opted for the stand up configuration in the RRR evo. I may be wrong but the RRR evo has a center of mass closer to the line of symmetry of the car. But then again, i don't really know unless i do exact calculations of both car's center of masses. hehehe!

I belive the centre of mass is closer to the midline as the servo is heavier than the rx unit. But then, don't they have to balance this out on the other side. Not sure if the have done this. Anyone know?

I bought this RRR used from e-bay for 180$ 6 months ago.So i had to upgrade it and change some parts.The sponge pucking for fuel tank are those small spongs that are placed inside at the top part of the tank.I'ts not actually a hop up
.As for the chase, i changed it,but i also have the stock one(just some scrathes and one atomic black color that i have not yet tried.I believe the best chase for that car is the k-factory one and the Kyosho sp chase,but both of them are very expensive.I bought the 3 racing chase which i am using by now for 25$-30$ and i don't have the slightest problem till now

You got that right... This guy helped me out when I was in the tracks and explained to me something about the center of gravity... All I can say is that I understood some parts of it. Mostly of the time, I get lost when he explains stuff like that. It's kinda hard for me to be in sync with his line of thinking with me being into the medical field...
