Hey guys is this the main thread for this car? Are there a lot of you guys running this instead of the other RRR WC? I have had thoughts about selling my 8th chassis and sticking with the nitro sedans being I like the challenge. Amainhobbies dropped the prices on this car. The NT1 spec 09 seems to be nice, but I have a feeling to just stay with the Kyosho. Anyone just running this car stock or have anyone found things to swap due to preference?

I have an Evo2, and Evo and I'm contemplating getting rid of the Evo and stepping up to a Shimo. I've seen a couple of them run at the track now and the changes look like they are worth the price. I like the Clutch, and they made the rear hubs out of harder material, it includes LOTS of aluminum goodies, and it's a touch lighter than my evo2.

the rear hubs are different in offset , wheel spacers to adjust offset, front diff standard , shock towers , new shocks much better than the old ones, rear roll centre has more adjustment, these small changes have made the car alot better (particularly on tracks with less grip)

Don't forget the brake disk, inclusion of a diff instead of a 1 way, front aluminum pulley holder, carbon body stiffeners, and a couple other things i'm forgetting.

By themselves doesn't seem like much, all together in a new kit at the prices the shimo are going for well worth it!

dodge stratus 3.1 is an awesome allround body, but the new audi bodies like the blitz RS4 or serpent A5 will give you a little more rear end grip ,but you loose a little on power steering, thats what i find anyway. the trusty dodge stratus 3.1 is the go!

i see that the rrr went from

wc - 3d clutch
evo/evo2 - 2d clutch
shimo - went back to the 3d clutch

whats the difference between the first 3d and the shimo 3d?

it seems like its the same clutch, just a different flywheel 'lightened version'.

Shimo and the 3D clutch are totally different except they both use 3 weights.

the shimo clutch is a similar setup to the sirio clutch where the weights sit on a pin and pivot out from there , which allows a bigger cap and more aggressive clutch without losing your fly weights ,which happened on ocassion with the old clutch , check out pics if you can find them and yes they are completly different

In addition to what the above said, the Shimo clutch is a much smaller clutch.
