It is just as durable or more durable than any of the other 200mm racers out there. (Serpent, Mugen, Xray)

It's not the toughest car( that's definitely the Mugen), but it is the fastest car out the box. If you have parts support then you shouldn't worry. The weakest part of the car are the rear hubs. If you tap the boards a lot they will crack where you screw in the upper camber link.

Default rear hub

the rear hub is the only part i have broken (not realy broken but it cracked). im going to buy a longer screw and see if that helps. im hopeing that a longer screw will keep the hub from cracking.
im going to try a 3x23 screw what you guys think?

Going with a longer screw helped me, I only need to change when its really bend.

I will try steel cups over the hub that I manufactured but 3R has aluminum ones that must work to the rear hub least longer.

yes aluminium colaar or washer over the screw mount on the rear upright does help prevent cracking. Worked for me.

That's a good question. I keep a new spare and after a couple of races I will measure the used spring and compare with a new spring with digital caliper. If there's a bid difference I will switch it out.

I leave the 4 clutch shoes just the way they come out of the bag.


Regarding the clutch spring, I hardly ever change mine as I always seem to have all the punch I need. Changing it never hurts and I should probalby measure it every once in a while... but I don't.

Regarding the rear hubs.... Use a longer screw. I broke a few hubs when I got the car. It was suggested to by another RRR driver to use a longer screw and since then I haven't broken that top piece again (which is almost two years now)
