Also youre right i think that the car does like the setting that you gave me. Powered by my old 3 port JP. There were a few guys at the track and they all came over to check out the car,wanting
to know what was running buy them.
I just want to say to all the KYOSHO touring car guys you must
drive this car.

Boner you have a PM.
it is so tempting to get the RRR

But first I'll wait till they stop making the parts for the RR, I don't want to have 2 cars, it would be a waste of money.

So what is the max speed of the RRR? mine is like 52-57mph depending on how my foams wear out. BTW, i have RR, for those that don't know.

Im am very interested in this car, sounds like kyosho made something really good.

how would you guys compare it to a MTx prospec?

also, do you have any pics anyone?


Also, how would you compare it to an FW-05R?


Last, does anyone have the 4 cycle engine ? where can I get it , and does it fit the same as a .12 engine?

I am sorry for all the Q's

Thanks, Boner! There you have it, bonified testiment that the 3R is harder (new material), lighter (less material) and not to mention, lower ... and that = faster down the straights and in the apexes.

I just looked at my new composite parts for the Evo. It is a lighter shade and the material is very hard. There is also a weight difference. It would probably only make a major difference if you changed all the parts available to composites. The composites cost about double the stock. So if you haven't got them already, save your change for the 3R.

I'm jealous, G1. Though I'm glad Boner hooked you up.

To the rest,
have a problem with the lower front arm, it seems to bind, not enough free play.... followed the instructions to a T (i hope) and even buffed the exta fleshings off the lower front A-arms....
Hi scum! I just heard that the 3R rear uprights were not working to well on the RR/Evo/05R because of limited or binding up/down movement. I wouldn't worry about it. I'm waiting to see what cvccsi has to say... he's working on it now.

Is the binding you're experiencing with the front steering knuckles off or on?

I did notice that my composite parts had some flashings too. The nylon parts hardly ever had anything to slice off.

You use what's included with your servo or purchase servo horns make for your servo.

No worries about the Q's ... that's what this forums all about.
I took the liberty to # your Q's for people to answer.
1) No one at my track has either the 3R or MTX3. But it should be quite a battle.
2) Scroll back on this thread a few pages and you'll see some of the guys 3Rs.
3) The 05R smoked the Evo in the corners using a front diff. Evo had a one-way. I personally love having both cars. Haven't done much to the 05R. Don't really need to. But my Evo when through some major surgery in the last yr. So I'm extremely happy with it's performance now. Spool, Atkins diet, SP belts ... it's still my project car.
4) 4 cycle engine: I've only seen it on the Kyosho site. But I here it blows everything away in the turns. But gets caught on the straights. And BTW ... it will fit.

i suspect the blinding isusse is cause by pivot ball retainer. with this new hub, the retainer tend to get out of thread very easy. I spend tons of time to make sure retainer is tightend trued not crooked. Another issuse is pivot ball, when you tighten it make sure it's straight into the arm it's very easy to threaded it crooked too.

aku: which company servo are you using? i know there are alloy servo horns for futaba and airtronic servos. But plastic servo horn will be a plus because they flex on impact which "give" another layer of protection to servo gears.

Boner, Thanks for sharing that. I think it'll help everyone who's planning on doing it.
