I am currently driving a Mugen MTX-3 and Iím looking at upgrading to a Kyosho V1 RRR in the near future. From what I have seen it maybe a better deal to buy the WCE and the EVO conversion kit than to buy the EVO kit and upgraded it with the WCE parts. Does it make sense to do this? Also what is the part number for the conversion kit? Fianlly, how durable are the Kyosho cars and what typically breaks? The reason I ask is that no one at my local track drives a Kyosho and I am curious how durable they are compared to the MTX-3. Thanks in advance for the help.

They are durable enough to withstand abuse, just get the WCE, don't need the EVO conversion either, or better yet buy the car that JO and Ken drives

The 720 is the other car that I am looking at. My problem with the 720 is that if they touch just a wall the car breaks.

You are talking about the 1st batch arms which has a problem but with the new batch the problem got corrected.

Going rate for a WCE is about $400.

RRR is very durable. If you're a pretty clean driver, then you shouldn't really have any problems at all. When I break things, it's usually the suspension arms (break or kink) or hubs (rear top screw rips out or front splits). Make sure you pick up some hinge pins, the small blue spacer on top of the rear hub and 20mm screws for the top rear hub as well. A hex screw kit is highly recommended.

Check out my RRR Knowledge Base & Forum for more info and build tips.
