Kyosho Adjustment Tools and Guages

I have a question about three of Kyosho's setting tools and guages. My first question is about the Kyosho tool for adjusting the 3D Centax Clutch. Here is a picture of it:



How does this tool aid in the adjustment of the 3D Centax Clutch? Would be easier and more accurate to adjust a Centax Clutch with this tool rather than just not using this tool at all? Does this Kyosho 3D Centax Clutch Adjustment tool also work for adjusting the Kawahara Micro SS V-One R Centax Clutch? Does anyone use this tool?

My second question is about the Kyosho 2-Speed Clutch Tool. Here is a picture of it:



How does this tool aid in the adjustment of the 2-Speed Transmission? Would it be easier an more accurate to adjust a 2-Speed Transmission with this tool rather than just not using this tool at all? I have never heard or seen of this before, so maybe you guys can give me some information on it.

My third and last question is about the Kyosho Diff Torque Guage. Here is a picture of it:



What actually is this tool for? I suppose its for adjusting the "slip" on a ball differential? I don't think it would have any use for the V-OneRR, but would it?

Do any of you V-OneR(R) guys use any of these tools I asked about and pictured above? How do they work? Just wondering because I am always looking for tools that make life a little easier!

Sorry for the long post.

Thanks in advance!

One of the benefits of using a "real" solid rear axle is than the thing is light.....reduced rotating mass, better throttle control when you want to kick the back end out...this is very important when running solid rear axle!! Using clay is just a half measure!

Just to let you all know last weekend at the Queensland State Titles in Oz Kyosho took out 1st and 3rd place with the V1RR GT car kit.

These things were FAST and the equal of anything else on the track.

I say equal because I believe that no current chassis is particularly better than the other. The driver (one of the best drivers in Oz) made the difference in the end.

I still say that the V1RR GT is the most complete and CHEAP car kit available right now however. And the winning kit was BONE STOCK or almost. Only options I could see was some Fantom springs. Also this thing weighed considerably more than most other kits as well. Most other guys were around 1720-1750, the winner came in around 1790.

Great result!

Kyosho Rubber Tire Version of V-One RR GT?

I was told that now being sold overseas (I believe in Asia and Europe) Kyosho just released a new Rubber Tire Version the V-One RR GT. Terence from the rcmodel.com.hk online shop states he has them in stock. I have a question about the V-One RR GT Rubber Tire Version. What is the difference between the V-One RR GT Rubber Tire Version and the V-One RR GT Foam Tire Version? Is the only difference the tires (one kit having foam and one kit having rubber), or is there actually different parts used in each of the kits?

Thanks in advance!
