Default Essential Hopups!!!

Hey guys, wat are the essential and 'must get' hopups for a RR Evo? I do not need any 'bling bling' parts here.

There are a few companies making these aftermarket parts for Kyosho like 3-racing and kawahara...which should i go for?

TIA

Either brand is good, although I personally like the Kawahara stuff myself.

As far as components are concerned, get what is important to you; speed, traction, lightening, toughening, etc., etc., ... you can't go wrong if you improve on what you feel is important.

I reckon the 'must get' list is very short.

Alloy brake stopper.

But I reckon the following is worthwhile, and as you can see, most of this stuff is just to get the weight or CG down a bit.

Shimmo Chassis.
Carbon top deck.
Ti main shaft.
Ti middle shaft.
Ti Pivot balls.
AAA receiver pack.
FW-05 flywheel.
Lowered engine mounts.
Alloy left side brace.
Teflon pads.
K-Factory brake disk.
Alloy wheel hex's.
Carbon right side brace.
Alloy screws/nuts for lightly stressed mountings.

Default locking front diff

after turning both wheels vice versa, it will lock. does this mean it lacks diff oil?

Default V-One RR Basics

Seems to me that all of the guys here pretty much experienced in the VOne with regards to tuning. It is in this light that I am asking for everyone's help.

I am a newby...a rookie...and I have a V-One RR. I already got some hop-ups - lightened chassis, kawahara shock stays, and other kawahara light metal stuff.

My diffs though are still stock.

What are the basic set-up I should do?

I currently have Rear Toe-in of 1 degree and Front Toe-out of 1 degree. Rear camber of 1 degree. Front camber is 2 degrees. Rear camber rise is 2.5 while Front camber rise is 1.75. Front caster is 9 degrees. Steering throw is 19 degrees.

All silver springs. Front shock oil is 30. Rear shock oil is 20.

With this set-up, I raced for the 1st time. Pros time are 16.something while I had 17.5 secs fastest lap.

I noticed in bumpy portions that the rear of the car bounces and causes me to lose a bit of control. This is because the amount of travel that the rear shocks are allowed is pretty small compared to my TL01. In my TL01 i have soft springs but the travel is greater and gives me a better droop. If I don't control the downstops of my RR, the chassis touches the ground.

Could you guys give me basic tips on how I can improve the handling and stability of my V One RR?

sorry for the long post

Thumbs up Ihernandez set-up

Wow!

Mine takes 3 toe-in on the rear, 2-toe out on the front and I generally get away with black springs all around. The rest is pretty much about the same.

It's a pretty common set-up but this thing loves front toe out.

I would try a softer spring in the rear or lighter weight oil. See how it handles those bumpy sections and see if you're heading in the right direction. As always, one change at a time and keep a good data book sheet.

Default Re: Ihernandez set-up

This is what I start with when ever I go to a new track.
front diff 50,000
front shock oil 50 wieght, trinty green spring
1 deg toe out.
1 neg camber
8 deg caster
sway bar 90 deg
rear diff 30,000
rear shock 40 weight, trinty yellow spring
middle hole on tower.
2.5 deg toe in
1 deg neg camber.
If traction is good and track lay out is flowing, I replace front diff with the one-way, and rear diff with one that has 50,000 in it, this is a good starting point on most tracks, just find tune for track conditions.
90% of set up is tires, and that is something that each track is different on

sparksy very nearly talked me into that hop up.

So finchy, you need to bring that MUGEN MTX3 down here? - then we'll see how fast it is.

Just for a little controversy, here's how I rate the top cars:

G4
MTX-3
Serpent 710
V-One RR EVO
HPI R40
FW-O5R

Well I see the G4 at the top of your list there. I personally haven't seen one in action yet, they are saying it's dominating in Sydney at the moment. But what I will say that the FW-05 I've seen in action does look very good. I would go out a limb and say it looks better than the EVO. As for coming down to Melb. that won't be happening for a coulple of years I think, Got to go back to the USA am see the rest of my family first. And of course buy some more toys when I'm there. You know the saying

A boy can never have enough Toys.

Try the box set-up as a place to start. It's pretty good.

Those oils sound rather soft to me.

Do you mean upstops?
Check the shock lengths to ensure your able to accommodate the droop you need.

There are 358 pages of tips and secrets, here.
Seriously though, the instructions should be fine.
. . . oh yeah, buy an alloy brake stopper.
