Hi Guys,

Im after some help,

Im trying to get an old Kyosho RRR Evo WC up and going to sell. but i need the front and rear complete shock set.

From memory the fronts and rears were different.

the only number i can find is FM529. i know this is perfect for the rears but i thaught the front shock shafts and bodies were shorter?

can anyone tell me the part numbers i need for the front?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone know if I can mount the aluminium wheel hexes of an xray Nt1 ?
It's so difficult for me find something for Kyosho, and it's original hexes have oring and not screw.
Thanks in advance.

Gonna say Yes, though the 3 different offsets Xray offers might be an issue in terms of clearance/geometry.

Should be "A Go".........BTW, 3Racing and the Kyosho Shimo Edition Hexs could be considered as well.

No issue for me about offset, I can correct it with a new setup, but I'm worried about the possibility to fit Nt1 hexs, kyosho uses a 6mm hole.
Did you know if xray has also 6mm hole ?
For example mugen hexs don't fit !

Sorry for not being more specific, Yes the Xray hexes will fit the RRR's 6mm axle shafts. There could be a limit on the cross pin length the Xray hexes will accept though.

Hi guys

I converted my RRR evo2 to brushless, now I need to reduce a bit the weight, more or less 50g.
Converting my car I removed bumper, brake system, throttle servo with linkages, battery plate, receiver mount, roll bar, second gear and so on, but isn't enough.
I think using some upgrade parts is the way to go, do you know what I can mount to save 50g keeping low cost ?
I'm thinking to titanium main shaft, titanium pivot ball, titanium rear cdv, something else ?
For Electric power a low weigth is a must have

Pics please!

Oh BTW, did you ever find the hexes? KM Group still has them in stock in blue and gun metal anodized. I use them, they're good quality.

Yes, I did, Edam hexes fit perfectly !!

Pics are coming ... The RRR evo2 with brushless conversion is lovely.
The cg is more low and the weight also, so It's very very agile out of the corner and in chicanes, absolutely better then nitro version about roadholding.
However I need a weight reduction (now 1500g) to get the performance (top speed and acceleration) as well as a touring electric.

Awesome build and amazing V one RRR could much longer still on the track, even EP could give her a new life!!

If anyone's interested, I have one of these, RTR, all I did was race, with the box, and instructions, its fast and hooked, with ALOT of spares, some tires, starter box, LRP motor, airtronics servos, two bodys. All you would need is a receiver, radio.

If any interest PM me, I can send lots of pics, will post a ad in the forsale section soon.

Thanks

I found some 2mm offset Twister foams if any of you are interested in running them, I always felt it made the car faster through chicanes
