Hey guys,

Need som advise here, The kit should arrive to my house on Friday, but I'm reading the manual instructions alredy to speed up the process of putting it together,
What settings most of you recommend for the belt tension (Front and Rear)
Loose of Tight?

Also what setting would be the best for the suspension Bush B, I guess this is where you adjust the position for the upper hing pin at front and the lower pin at rear.

Any feedback would be helpful

Thanks

Regarding belt tension, run them loose.
Regarding the suspension, that really depends on the track and what you are trying to get the car to do for you.

How loose, the first setting?

For the suspension, I was just trying to see if anyone recommend a good starting point, I'll be racing at 301 raceway...

Thank you,

I run the front and rear belts as loose as I can.

What is the reason for this? I have a new car and now I wonder if I should do the same. I think I adjusted belts to "medium" tension when I built the car, not sure though. It could be also the "loosest" setting since the car is new.

I just bought the Evo 2 rear shock stay to my Evo 1. Also the alum brake lever which is nice, not sure if really needed.

Running them loose gives the greatest drivetrain efficiency. After a few club days when the belts have loosened up and stretched, I move them up to medium.

I just switch to Kyosho, so there's a few stuff that I need to get familiar with
Can someone tell me the effect difference between the following parts:
Diaphragm Black
HC Diaphragm Black
HC Diaphragm White

Also on different colors for the Clutch Shoe
which one is harder, softer

Thank you

Changing the height of your hinge pin will change the roll centers on the car. The car feels pretty neutral with the standard lower hinge pin settings. Since I changed out the front 1-way for a spool I lowered the upper arm so that I will get more camber gain in the corners and essentially have more steering (trying to get it back to the steering a 1-way would have had)

I've found that with the lower arm heights you really get different feels on different tracks, so you really just have to play with them to find out what you like, it's generally a pretty subtle change.

Anyone has tried VRC (virtual RC) ? I haven't been able to run my WCE yet, but it surely handles well on the screen How does it compare to real racing, you know?

Not sure if others have asked this already, but my searching has come up with zip. I'm looking of some Capricorn parts for my RRR and Muran Modified doesn't have them listed (I have sent them an email but on reply yet). I have also searched brooklynhobbies.com, serpentamerica.com, and parmapse.com. Who else in the states has Capricorn parts?

Thanks!
