Default sorry, still stumped?

The only spring info I found on RMD's Knowledge base site, was for 'non Evo' springs.

From what I know, these are not the same...am I correct?

Are there really only three front and three rear springs for the V1R Evo WC?

Default thanks RMD

RMD, thanks for that link. Boy, they really don't make that info easy in the kit literature.

Are there other springs that work with the Evo shocks (that people use and recommend)? I guess I rely on springs a lot for tuning, and three seems like a pretty small tuning range. Maybe I'm wrong...

Ok, i have this problem that the back end keeps breaking out when turning on power or in quick left right corners. I had it with my wce from last year and also with my evo this year. I tried a lot of things like change the camber, caster, tires, camber links, springs, diffs, clutch, body and wings. And i don't really know what to trie next. On tight technical tracks it is worse than on large flowing tracks. At the end of last Sundays race i basically got back to the evo stock setup with the exception of 2 droop up front and the front anti roll bar in vertical position and a front diff (100k). This was on a tight technical track.
Does anyone has an idea what the problem could be?

I haven't come across any info on what other springs fit the Evo shocks.

I completely rebuild my car between each race weekend, everything was moving nice and smooth, brakes are set verry low as i dont really brake much. Diffs were checked and i also have a couple of build diffs ready so i can change them fast between heats.

I usually use the droop settings to get more on power steering, so usually i have more droop at the front than the rear. Could that be the problem?

you should use less droop and more caster for more on power steering

Default RRR Hardened Outdrives

Hi Guys,

Have any of you seen or used these option parts yet - I am after some harder outdrives for my V-One RRR (as the stock items are crap). I have a freind who recons he has had one of their radio trays and likes it but I wondered if any of you had seen these:

I haven't tried these outdrives as I've only used the stock ones and I agree that stock ones are weak.

Question for everyone... Without flipping the outdrives to use the other side, how long are the outdrives lasting on your cars? Since it's difficult to measure this by distance or even time, I'm gauging it by the amount of fuel used.

In my situation, I just finished a gallon of fuel on a new V-One-RRR Evo WCE chassis and the outdrives are so worn that it was causing handling issues. What was occurring was the CVDs would stick in the worn out section and bind up the suspension. This caused a "chatter" or "hopping" effect on acceleration and induced a push to the car in high-speed turns.
