Default Kyosho V-ONE RRR Ultimate Edition (UE)

This thread is for the development of the Kyosho V-ONE RRR Ultimate Edition (UE). It is not a car you can buy from Kyosho or anyone else. It is a project by some of the racers here at rctech.net to make the V-ONE RRR World Championship Edition (WCE) even better, by developing a specification that includes specific performance and durability upgrades to create the “ultimate” V-ONE RRR.

If you would like to particulate in the development of the V1RRR UE specification, here are some guidelines:

(1) You can submit a recommendation for kit-included parts with respect to usage, setting, installation or modification to obtain optimal performance or durability.

(2) For parts not included with the kit, please include some or all of the following:

Brand:
Part number:
Description:
Type of upgrade: (Performance, durability or both)
Reason: Explanation of why the part is better than the stock WCE part or other parts, if applicable.
Setting: Recommended settings for the part, if applicable.

(3) For engines, servos, tuned pipes, tires, bodies or other items, see #2.

(4) For setup recommendations (baseline general use or for a specific track), please refer to the blank setup sheets provided at Kyosho (click here). Unfortunately, you cannot edit these. A fill-in the blank template will be forthcoming, so you may want to wait.

(5) If you disagree with someone, please be polite.

V1RRR UE Version 0.1 (Draft) will be published no later then May 31, 2006. It will be published sooner if possible.

Thanks for your participation!

I think I will start us off with an easy one.

Brand: Kyosho
Part number: VZW215-16
Description: 1st Steel Gear (16t)
Type of upgrade: Durability
Reason: The stock gear is aluminum and wears out quickly. This gear will last a long time.
Setting: N/A
Notes: They also make the other 1st gears in steel as well.
VZW215-15 = 15t
VZW215-17 = 17t

Excellent! I wish I would have known about the steel gears when I bought the 15T/21T gears a few weeks ago.

See that... it's working already.

I have a hole list of stuff I will try to get on tomorrow.

Are we only to list the items we have used? That way we can give real input.

You know it! That's the intent.

Either what you've used or done - or someone else has documented and validated. There is a lot of really good info in the RRR thread that I'm going to add to the spec if those guys don't add it themselves (they get credit for it, of course). I don't expect to get 100% participation, but it would be good if we could get close.

We'll see what people submit. Just because it's submitted, doesn't mean it will be included in the spec. It has to pass everyone's scrutiny and sanity check - and I don't really want to include anything that someone hasn't validated. If a reliable source or consensus identifies something that shouldn't be in the spec, then it's not going to make it.

I intend to build the UE. No question about it. It will be interesting to see what the total damages look like ($$$ ). If all the parts are available, I might be piloting version 0.1 by mid-June.

Just a few questions, if you don't mind:

(1) Did you notice that something was wrong while you were driving or when you inspected the car back in the pit?
(2) How long have you been using the sway bar?
(3) Have you used the sway bar with any other setting? (i.e. medium, hard) And if so, when did you change it to soft?
(4) Were you in any accidents that day or the previous time your raced?

Thanks!
