Hey Japong, I think you forgot that you asked this on the other page. Did you try any of the suggestions yet? Scroll down.

When I first joined RCTech, I read the whole entire V-one RR thread. At the time, about 300 pgs of posts. It took me a few days, but it taught me years of experience in those few days. Be die-hard, man ... you'll learn every trick.

GUYS, FANSTASTIC NEWS!!!
I followed all your suggestions and guess what? It's working fine already.

Found out that the clutch was not engaging too early, rather, it was permanently engaged due to some binding. Rebuilt the clutch and now it is working perfectly.

Thanks to all

Default Damper stay with body posts

Hi guys, one of my rear body posts broke off when my car flipped at the track. I am thinking of changing the rear floating mount for lola bodies as i am using touring car bodies anyway. Are there any aftermarket parts that i can use on my rr evo which incorporates the body posts onto the damper stay...preferably carbon fibre? Cheers.

Here is the Kyosho part number you are looking for. It converts the floating evo mount to non-floating like the rrr. VZW053 Towerhobbies.com has it. I think 3 racing also makes one. It is quite a bit lighter than the floating setup also.

I agree with Jeff. Try the 3-racing rear shock tower. It's thick cf so you won't need to double it up. I also use the body posts from the Trinity Reflex. There so much stronger than the stock Kyosho posts. The front post's bottom hex is slightly larger than the Kyosho's so you'll need to squeeze it into the bumper's post holder.

Hi everyone, I put together my V1RR with an evo kit and barely got to end-of-run-in. That was about 6 months ago. Now I am back and almost ready to start up the little beast again. Problem is, I can't remember anything I learnt about it. I have had to much to do lately... Marriage, bought house... anyway.


If you guys have some advice on what to keep an eye on or some good setups for settings, it would be much appreciated. I do remember experiencing some minor clutch problems which I can't remeber if I fixed or not. Other than that, I feel like a newbie again.

I think the RR Evo is still very competitive. We have several and we race them hard. A-main cars at our local tracks. The only real issues I have found with the cars is they are a bit heavy in factory trim, and the gearing is not very flexible on short tracks. Looks like they addressed both issues with the RRR. They are very tough cars. I have also found that the base kit setup is very close to where you want to be. Big permant tracks or very short ones you will have to make a few small changes.

Anyone have a good setup for tight ourdoor track on asphault? It's for V-one rr, not evo.
