With both a C01 and C02 thread to keep track of, it's a little confusing to make sense of, however:

I believe on the C02 thread DJ mentioned he had to make to fit rear/lower ball cups in order to get the right amount of down travel (ie, the piston sitting in the desireable location in the shock body @ static ride height), and that is also what I found as well. Since I have lots of Kyosho RRR parts to modify, thats what I've done. Using the middle of the 3 sizes of ball cups, I shortened these .7 mm, together with the 4.8 mm ball studs and the "Flat/Older Generation" spring seats and Gold (stiffest front) springs now has the Rear suspension to my liking. I also discovered that the early RRR front springs work very well in both front and rear locations.

The front end used all the parts as supplied and 80 wt Associated Oil in all 4 dampers.

Ran the Car Saturday at Timezome and by the 3rd qual it was very good.


Hey Trevor, you gonna make it to the TZGP ?
Yes. DJ did mention he had to use different (longer) eyes to get the shocks to fit but this was because he wanted to use the shock extensions he normally uses with the stock shocks.

With the extensions, the new shocks are not long enough.

At the Byrons race..... correct me if I'm wrong here DJ but he decided not to use the extensions and used the new shocks at the length they come at.
He mentioned also that he wants to work with them a little more but he liked the feel of them.

Hey people, made a nice mod for my C-01 car.
Idea is to have the mass more in the middle of the chassis for faster chassis roll and reaction.
2.5mm carbon topdeck is machined and the tank is 3d printed and coated in special fuel proof epoxy, a steel ring at the tank opening to make it more durable. 2x1s round 900 mah hobbyking lipo`s.
The standard tank pressure cap can be used.
Servo`s are connected by spacers to the topdeck.

Greetz,

Roy

NICE! But fast refueling will be threatened since lid is more towards the back of the car.

Why would you want that?.

For the steel bell you want the dark red shoe.

For the uncoated aluminium bell you want the black shoe.

For the coated aluminium bell you want the yellow shoe.

Other combinations work, but the three listed above are the best in my book.

The best overall is the coated aluminium bell with the yellow shoe.

Around 35-40 for the printing and 50 for the special coating. However with the coating you can seal several fuel tanks.

I still have to try mine out on the track, but it's completely fuel proof.

Since our track has a lot of chicanes and acceleration is from dead stop the rear tends to go out and want to make the take off a bit smoother and not that aggressive.

What do you mean by best overall?

Tried the Aluminum bell with black pad but its to grippy.

Can you forward part numbers of the yellow and coated bell please

Thanks

If you want to make it a bit smoother just turn back the preload a bit. I always adjust the clutch preload when traction is low.
Or change the throttle response artificially by putting a curve on your throttle channel in your transmitter.
Or just pull the throttle a bit more gently.

With best overall I mean it's the best performing set, clutch hits hard and the engine spools up quickly.
