Yes I use them, never had a problem with them, but I do change the front & rear after every 4 or 5 meetings. It's so long since I used a kyosho version I've forgotten what they are like.

Hi guys,

Im keen to change to the RRR. Though I have a few q's first.

1. Im looking at the EVO WC and im wondering if anything needs to be changed on this car before its gonna hold on on the track.. EG. Like the MTX-4 needs front uni's.

2. What are some crucial spares you would recommend to take to the track (dont have a huge budget)?

3. What sort of receiver mount/cover .etc is included in the kit?

Cheers,
Cameron. :tire

1/ if you getting WC then you dont have to buy any option(just 1 is needed front spool), otherwise is all come with the car. e.g. uni, 1 piece mount, rubber belt, carbon shock tower.....
2/ not a huge amount of parts you need mainly spur, arms
3/ no cover in the kit but you can use MTX4 cover

Do they have any issues stripping spurs? Or only user faults ones?

Mainly due to the worn lay shaft and bearing.

As soon as you see the belts starting to shred.

Yes it will affect handling, you can buy/replace just the sway bar itself.

I recently pickup up an evo.
I went racing today and I hit a wall on my right side.
The front tire warped. I noticed the steering rod was bent. I kind of formed it back straight and changed to a different set of tires. The next heat I came off the track and the new tire was warped also. the wheel..and the locknut were hot to the touch.. the car was driving fine.
Any experience with this?

I may need a few items...what online supplier stocks parts for this car?
thanks.
kevin
