That's a good price. I will most likely buy it when they stop making the parts for my RR

Considering that most of Kyosho parts come in trees, the time they stop making parts for the RR will be when they release the V-one RRR"R".

I am waiting for a guy I know to get some kits in. He has a hobby shop connection in Japan for FRESH Kawahara tires and anything Kyosho. I can't wait to snatch those hub carriers and slap 'em on my FW. Back to back comparo: FW-05R (w/ the "RRR" hub carriers) VS. V-One RRR.

How much did you pay for them, and where did you get them???

AFM
AFM, The tank I pulled from my RTR NTC3. It's a little lower and longer than the Factory Team tank. This one has a black lid cap. I'm sure you can get it from your LHS. The Battery tray is off the Serpent 950. It's designed to hold 5 side-by-side AAA's. You'll also need to cut a longer tank slot in the top chassis going going towars the back.

I think the battery holder I used was an older model. But it look like the new Serpent one will work too. I'll try to research it more for you. You could actually make a custom one out of carbon fiber which I intend to do later.

Hope this helps.

If the rear arms fit, I'll steal those too. I hope they went to a bigger outside bearing for the hub carriers. The current 6x12 don't seem to last.

2. How does the TCD gear set work on the V1? I tried it on the FW and the car again is undriveable. It oversteers going into the corner and loose while on power. It's even worse than the 30k rear.
jeffreylin, I used to run 30k, I switched back to 10K. But I'm running the spool in front so I needed a looser rear. It all depends on your driving style. I switched mine up and like the 10K better. Our track takes a while for traction to set in, so looser is better.

As far as TCD gears go, same think, I went back to the stock gears. They kind of paddle throught the lube more than the stock and this helps keep the rear diff stiffer which works wonders on larger tracks with fast turns. But I got the same handling characteristics from running heavier oil in a stock diff case.

I used to run the Kawahara Neg. Diff in my RR. I seemed to work OK, but I got faster lap times and held better lines with, again, the stock diff case. I think it's down fall was the heavy alum. diff. case. It carried too much weight around the turns, which made my rear end fish a little.

This is all through my own experience in the last 2.5 yr racing the RR and Evo. But in my opinion, save your money for tires.

R4E, I know what you mean. I blew 3 of them in one season. Then I switched them out for Boca bearings.

Let me know if the rear arms are the same length. In the pix I've seen, they still look like the same arms.

Thanks very much kidDynomite. So you are running 10k in you V1 too? Interesting. I will be getting my RRR soon and I will post some comparison comments between the FW and RRR.

jeffreylin, you're welcome. Congrats on your RRR. I'm actually planning to get an FW05R soon too. But I can't wait hear more feedback on the RRR.

jeffrey- the internals are the same but one car is a belt driven and the other shaft. The won't work the same. When I first got my FW-05R I tried 100k in the rear because that's what I ran in my Mugen. It was not too pleasant.
The Evolution with 10k will diff out in the corners. You can tell this when you see the car chatter in the turns. Again, I went to 100k for teh Evolution and it was dialed. It's dependent on traction in the end but this is just to give you an idea that you treat the two cars as having nothing in common regarding set up. After all, You don't know what works best till you try it. I
