I think most of the guys are doing a mistake by taking the RR conversion like me ....why... !!

Well... the most important thing is that front shock stay which is completely different and not available in the market from even the aftermarket guys and which if broken you dont have any more replacements ?? I heard its still under production and not readlly available.

I would suggest that for guys who are not having parts in hand and live far off places like me... to do the following.. .

if not converting....

change the upper deck to CF
change the front and rear hubs to RRR , till such time the front stay is avial.

i dont know how many of the guys use the different holes in the front shock stay but the manual of rr still says to use hole no. 1 but if you are not the setup freak sort then i think you can do the above and live with it.

Honestly i got the rr kit and liked it a lot but the track i have it has to break something or the other which scares the sh#$ out of me coz no parts so i am still on the R. till my LHS has the parts

But hey there is no harm in getting it get it use it and if something breaks and no parts you can always go back to the R !

Just my opinion.....as i almost experienced it.

I got it from Japan aswell email in my earlier post.

Cheers

I think the most crucial part of the RR conversion is the new upper bulk head and shock tower. You could adjust the front RC with the new conversion kit, and also have more set up options, which after trying it, does make a difference when you are entering/exiting a corner.

I dont think the shock tower will break unless you have a massive crash. But then again, I dont think it will be long before companies like 3racing come out with some aluminium stuff

I used to run a full width bumper but found the ends were prone to bending down with only the slightest of knocks, and once down would scrape on the ground and take away my steering, shame really as with the wide bumper I actually had more front end grip as it gave a better under car air flow.
