i've just joined this forum, kool community you got here! I also own a V1-RR and would have to say IT ROX MY JOX! A very STURDY and well balanced car. I mean, MUGEN doens't have any world titles under it's name does it?

I've got a question that i need some feedback on... Is the EVO a logical and worthwhile upgrade? Some of the guys down at my track are running the FW-05 which is bloody quick and the free roll on that thing is enough to make the ntc3 look bogged!

I'm waying up my options atm, i'm leaning to 'keeping' my RR now as it is well set up and runs a treat. I'm also waiting on a MURNAN mod ROSSI pixy... so it should be sweet! oh btw, the track i run on is TIGHT and TWISTY. I havn't much clue about murnan motors other than they're WET YOUR PANTS FAST.
would this mod motor be ideal or should i stick to my NS3?


thnx guys!

Read up two posts.
. . . . and for that engine, sounds like you might need some incontinence pads.
What city are you from?

I just picked up my RR EVO, and was wondering if the one-way from my RR would fit in the EVO?
My RR was overdriven to the front wheels so I had to get different pullys and belt to fix this, is the EVO overdriven to the front?
Any thing I should Know when puting the car together?

Thanks
Brett
Hi Brett & welcome,

The RR one-way won't fit - the Evo is narrower.
The Evo has the same overdrive pulley arrangement as the RR.
The kit goes together fine, though it would be worthwhile going back a number of pages to see various opinions/ideas etc. on the build.

Thanks Taylor.

Do you guys keep the front overdrive setup? Why does Kyosho make the car like this? I would of thought a 1 to 1 or even slightly overdriven rear would be better? Will the car handel better with an overdriven front?
Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks
Brett

The main advantage of the overdriven front end from a handling perspective is better on power steering. Use 3mm split front and rear and this thing just leaps around the corners.

The reason the EVO uses a front 4.5mm overdrive apart from the handling benefits is to keep the rear tires larger than the front. If you wanted a front overdrive normally the rears need to be smaller than the front and since the rear tires are the tires which determine rollout then you are losing some top speed. Keeping the fronts smaller allows a larger rollout figure, but the fronts are lower profile for better handling.

That being said I still use the 27T side pulley for lower grip tracks or where the advantage of the overdrive is less.

Thanks!

Thanks for that. Actually what I was after was the instruction sheet that came with the RR which said if you change caster it does X and if you change camber it does Y.

I had one but cannot find it!

Horn. Derived from Horny. Meaning attractive or desirable. Used in a sentence "Thats a horn set of rims you have on your Chevy Impala".
