Sorry if this has been covered and sorry for the noob questions, I'm just getting my feet wet in nitro touring.

Thanks
You don't need any upgrades to start with. The RRR run just fine out of the box and doesn't have any inherent issues.

My Web site does have extensive info on the non-Evo RRR WCE, which you may find helpful.

Default TITANIUM PIVOT BALLS

Does anyone know what's the weight difference between the standard pivot balls and the optional 64 titanium ones on the v-one RRR?The part number of the 64 titanium pivot balls is :VZW024V.
The weight of the standard ones is 4,6gr each.What's the weight of the optionals titanium pivot balls?

For starters I would set the car up to the standard setup sheet it comes with...the RRR has a very big sweet spot....I'm basically running the stock setup with some heavier oils in the shocks...and i just add a little more camber and toe when necessary....you definitely want to try the solid front end

Hope this helps

I have never weighed the Kyosho TI pivot balls...but rest assured they will be much lighter than the stock ones...im guessing about 2grams lighter per ball

Speaking of weight, and we've all heard that the NT1 has the most crazy light drivetrain possible so I decided to pull it all out and weigh it. Can any of you do the same while you're cleaning your bearings or something and post back here about the rrr evo wc?

198 grams, includes rear diff, no bearings, no belts, middle shaft with the brake disc/holder, rear middle gear, 2nd gear setup, 1st and 2nd gears, all pins and clips associated with these. Then the front middle shaft, no bearings with the gears and all pins/clips. The spool (locked one-way in my case, but I know you guys have a light spool) with no bearings. All front and rear drive axles plus pins and wheel hexes, no wheel nuts.

My NT1 stock with a Lipo battery and 10 extra grams of weights came in at 1755!!

i've never measured the drivetrain weight,but i have used some hop ups that
are supposed to make this lighter such as titanium rear axle and k-factory middle shaft.the whole car is about 1620gr everything included apart from body.i want to make it arround 1700 with body...i don't use lipo

Default Kyosho Universals

To any and all Kyosho lovers... I have a question. I run the RRR Evo and want to run the World Edition Universals all the way around. I have fronts but can not find rears anywhere. I need a part number and a place to shop for these hard to find parts. At all the races I go to, I'm usually the only one running a Kyosho so I can't communicate with anyone that knows about our cars. Please help! Thanks

Try and contact one of your local Hobbie shops and see if they can order direct from Kawahara..that part might be hard to find..you might be able to find a stock replacment for the car from www.Kyoshoamerica.com


hope this helps

Thanks Robert Maestry and huskerfreak for the help. I have ordered Kfactory rear universals K1911 and ordered Kyosho VSW007 short style for the front. The VSW015 is for the 2mm offset and I never have run offset. As the matter of fact, I don't understand the difference with 0mm and 2mm. Is their an advantage to having one or the other? Have either of you tried the Kyosho X312T motor? I love it!!
