Should not. There should be enough angle to avoid the aerial. Make sure the brake arm is almost all the way out and it should angle the brake linkage sufficiently.

Does anybody make an adjustable front shock stay for the V-1-RR?

Cheers

I have the same problem too, can you post some pictures how it should be installed? Many thanks!

There is a place to add some grub screws on the back suspension for ride height adjustment on the v-1-rr. Does anybody use these?

Cheers

ride high adjustment is with the thread shock collors.

Yes the Kyosho V1R front shock stay (also for the V1S) fits perfectly (not on the EVO however).

It should tuck just inside like so.



And like so.

Yes, same here.
Looking at the pic's, we are using a longer servo horn, though.
My main beef with the linkages is that the throttle side has to be tucked really tight under the handle. I'll turn the servo around and hopefully solve both problems.

I was just looking at that pic and wondering if that short antenea was just for show or was it "correct" for the receiver shown - anyone know?

The thread shock collars adjust the ride hight but when you press the car down the car chasis hits the floor.

The grub screws I am talking about restrict the down movement so the chasis doesnt bottom out. I have adjusted these to allow 0.5mm ground clearance under full suspension load so it will be zero when the tyres are worn at the end of a heat

you are talking about the upstop. you can use the set screw at the bulkhead side to adjust but normally you dont need to set that screw or you will make your car act funny.

Yeah in the manual there are very precice measurements for the servo horn given. You have to be right on with them or you will have trouble (as you have found out).

The short antenna is just a Kyosho tradition. I have never seen a RX unit with such a short length of wire. Not to say there isn't one!!

Arrow centax

aside from the settings stated in the instruction manual,
what are you folks setting your centax clutches at -- end play and spring collar depth. mine is at 0.5mm endplay and 2mm clutch spring collar depth.....my bottom end sucks using the included modular gears in the EVO conversion, also when using the stock gears.

I use 0.3mm end float and 2.5mm on the adjuster nut.

I cheat.

. . . . as told to me by an old racer:
I screw the the spring collar down till the spring locks up, then unscrew three quarters of a turn - perfect.
This method worked on our old Fantom clutch as well as the 3D.

We also use end float of about 0.3mm.
0.5mm is OK, but you should be able to shim it to 0.3mm pretty easily.
