esham,
Ditch the switch - it's extra weight and an extra point of failure.
Just plug and un-plug as necessary.

Thanks in advance.

I think the general consensus is to use 3mm screws instead of the standard 2.6mm or what ever they are.
I recently had a problem even with the 3mm screws and have substituted 3mm x 10mm machine screws. If you intend to use machine screws, you will need to drill out the 2mm holes to 2.5mm otherwise there is a risk of distorting the plastic which may cause the gears to bind. Only use a very sharp drill for this - the tolerances using machine screws are much tighter.
I now use Permatex non hardening gasket goo to seal the diff - silicone is too "squirmey" IMHO and also seems to be soluable in the diff oil.

As for what oils to use, I'm gonna guess for you.
7K in the rear and 30K in the front should be a fair "all-rounder" - there will be plenty of opinions on this one.
I have no idea what oils come in the kit but if you follow their instrustions that'd be fine too.

And the gear combination is not as many as MTX3.
Haven't had any issues with the available gear ratios.
Ohhh . . . you mean, sometimes the track is too big.

Well . . . . there are buyers in Australia - not sure if there are any sellers as yet.
May as well get an Evo, eh.

Hopefully the Sydney guys could guide you on the Sydney scene - I'm in Melbourne.
IIRC the RR took quite some months to arrive in Oz after it's release and I guess that's one reason people will buy the Evo from OS.
Also, there is the national titles coming up in Qld and it's always nice to go in with a new car.
Not sure what you are expecting from the car - if the economics is an issue, I expect you could easily find a cheap R and be competative. We currently run an "R" and it's still good.

Yeah! In HK most RR drivers, esp driving in big track, have changed the 19teeth pulley to the 24-teeth pulley, for a better top speed on the straight.

But with the new 0.8 gear combination, seems like we still can't throw away our 24-teeth pulley just yet.

It seems we down here always get things late.

Money isn't a problem,i was thinking maybe of getting a RR first and running it a while and then getting the evo upgrade or the kit so i would be able to feel the differences,lol.Maybe i'll just wait and see what people think of the evo and then they probably will be available down here and i'll pick one up,if anyone in oz heres of them being available please give me a heads up.

Hello Taylor Racing, we have reinstalled contact- Works got me over a barrel at the moment. Seems that if you know the TKA guys you can get anything. Evo is yet to show it's preformance, maybe this week end it will be at the track, have to wait and hear a report from TBR as unfortunately I won't be there. Work bloody work. Can some one tell me how can I sit on my ass and make millions a year and not leave home.
