That would be everyone's complaint no?

That is a Sirio EVO2 Engine I believe (correct me if I'm wrong guys). Unfortunately, I did not see any Yokomo nitro touring cars on the website. I do not have a link to the site at the moment, but if you browse the EP thread, you can find it under the new kyosho EP thread.

The other chassis is the old chassis for the EVO. The picture just shows a comparison between the old and the new.

*drool* the new RRR is really nice. It looks like the plastic pieces are smaller/lighter. I just hope it's not a pro kit

Default centax clutch

Hey guys how you all doing?
Was just wondering how to adjust the centax clutches on the VoneRR's? is it by tighting the donut thing that holds the big spring on to the crankshaft? or is it done with an allen car in that little hole above the bellhousing? :?
Thanks in advance guys :!:

Please refer to the link Brain... It matter of correct shiming. The "donut" holding the spring is to tune the engagement of the clutch. What you have to confirm check is the clutch gap and the end play gap and check if you use the correct length of the allen screw...

refer below attachment

Brain,
The end screw should around 3x12 or 3X15 base on your engine as stated in the manual. If it too long you will have too loose centax assembly.

The spring adjuster or cap "donut" as you call it should be use to adjust the torque clutch engagement. The basic - you tighten it to get late clutch engagement and more torque (more pick up) but you loose it if you want it less torque less pick up. Theory base low traction you have to loose it and high grip traction track you can tighten it to get more pick up (acceleration).

One thing to carefull base on my beginner experience, if you tighten the spring until make the engine to "noisy" before it engage or at top of the limit means you tighten it too far. ( Not good for you engine..) So loosen it abit until you can get clutch engagement just perfect and still you can have ability to punch the throttle abit more till top speed...

However, due to limited spaces, it may not have been possible without raising the tank even higher or hurting the left/right balance.

O well, otherwise the car looks killer.
I would agree with the tank ...

Also I wished manufacturers would make available low CG heatsinks! They would be perfect for the RRR or the G4.

Just as long as they don't copy the steering system, eh.

Thanks for the great pic's, B.

The car looks good though the throttle servo is a little exposed.
I particularly like the little tray on top of the receiver - somewhere to put those G4 wheel nuts while contemplating what tyres to use.
