any other goodies you guys think i should upgrade? What is the part number for the rear universals?
What ever hop ups for the WCE RRR will fit the EVO

Default 0 or 2 Degree Offset

Why would one choose to run the RRR with the narrower rear to use with the 2 degree rims to get to 200mm, vs using 0 degree rims and using a wider rear end? I would imagine that the narrower rear with the 2 degree rims gives more rear traction???? Why?? Thanks for your help.

I wish! Meanwhile strapping in a 7T into carpet sedan isn't that bad actually. Although running just 5 mins suck!

The MTX-4 is a nice car, but parts are expensive her in the United States for that car. So I am thinking about getting either the Kyosho V-ONe RRR WCE or the Kyosho V-ONe RRR Evo WCE. My local hobby shop which is RCtech located in Daly City, Califronia quoted me for $425 on the RRR WCE and $450 on the RRR Evo WCE. which one should i get or does it really matter. Also I have a NTC3 with lots of hop-ups for sale for $200, and I also have three engines for sale a RB X12 5port Turbo used but still great compression, and a OS12TZ 3port Turbo ebmods (just finish breakin), and Novarossi NS12S3 brand new. Sorry to but that lasy part but I really like what kyosho is doing and I want to get one of the two kits so I have to sell the other stuff yea.
well, i would go for the v1rrr evo wce

Uriah...I have heard that the car is more stable with the 2mm offset...the car has a larger contact patch due to the offset......I will be trying them real soon....

I have used both and i get much more grip at the rear with a wider rear end and 0 deg offsets V narrower rear and 2 deg offset.

For low grip I use the wide end. for high traction use the narrow rear

Cheers

Its the opposite. It makes the car more responsive = unstable

Default where are the 2 set screws from the 2nd speed shoe?

Hello,
I just received a new fm360 2nd speed shoe. The difference with the previous one and with the manual is that the 2 3x3 set screws, which are used to eliminate any possible gap, are missing and the shoes do not have the relative hole. Does anyone know if the specific part has changed or it is wrong?
Thanks

There's a roll center change to consider as well!

Yes, came in the kit, although it's such a solid spring that I can't imagine it having much give....looks okay though!
