- The RRR was first released in 2004.
- Then came the RRR WC, which is similar in configuration to the car that won the 2004 IFMAR worlds.
- In 2006, Kyosho released the RRR Evo, which is an upgrade to the RRR (not RRR WC).
- After the 2006 IFMAR Worlds, Kyosho released the RRR Evo WC, which is an upgrade to the RRR Evo and some of the parts are the same as the ones on the RRR WC, while retaining all the Evo parts.

The Evo includes a stand up servo (versus laydown), Evolva shocks and some other nice upgrades to make the RRR more durable. All RRR/Evo/WC parts, for the most part, are interchangeable, so you can turn a RRR WC into a RRR Evo WC quite easily.

"Better" is rather subjective, but no matter which car you buy, you will be getting one really great car.

Don't know which is better as some like the older one better and vice versa,
although the Kyosho guys that ran at the worlds on the high bight Brisbane track changed the car back to the laydown servo version because of traction rolling i hear.
high traction = laydown servo version ( WCE )

mid/ low traction = standup version ( EVO )

Very True I have the RRR WC and very satisfied no need for an EVO rigth now.

Default v-one rrr

i agree with you my friend.Original RRR throtle servo system is awesome and i cannot understand why kyosho returned to the old throtle servo system like on the RR.One upgrade which is really good from the evo ,is the rear main shaft with the aluminum brake pulley without the "hollows" on the shaft for the pins.

If I'm not mistaken, that is a Novarossi Plus 12-3CT with a Team Titan aftermarket cooling head. The fins of that head are angled down towards the turbo plug. I guess this would make the engine run cooler Just my 2 cents

As stated by Ivan, you can use the ones from Mugen (I believe they come in 2 sets, upper and lower T0809 & T0810... I think) or you can get titanium screws from Kyosho. They come in boxes of 8. I just bought some today.
