Same place it always goes - but that section of the chassis is not removable.

A same chassis was for RRR. It's harder than the stock one. For high grip tracks.

Start with default setup and make sure your diffs oils are new every day for high perfomance.

Nikos or whoever, I would be very interested in seeing how you setup the wiring, a picture of your car from that side should be very very interesting to me.

As first tentative I've utilised the "star" holder came in the box on which I've installed the trasponder and utilised as support for the servo wires. It seems functional but I'm not so happy with that mess of wires around that support...

I'll try soon to post my picture, looking for suggestions...

Regarding the rear diffs., using the steel bevel gears and the alloy diff housing cover what is the best oil viscosity to use. Is 50,000 to light ? ideally I don't want to have to change it after every meeting.
Thanks

In order to have maximum perfomance you need to do that. Is the same as all other brands. (Not same as RRR which you forgot to change diff oils)

Regarding diff oil depends on your track. Start with default and change + or - with your driving.

Default r4 differences

the biggest improvement is the lower cg, it hadles sweepers much better and also the car is much more settled in high speed s's. with the smaller diffs i feel the car accelerates quicker. I will be running the car at the winternats in florida this week and also the m3 evo. you can watch live at www.winternats.com clink on the scoring link my name is Peter Breton
I will get only be running the last three qualifiers on thursday.

Thank you Peter for your comment and i did went through this forum pages and conclude the improvement on how it been design but still got some issues ( Gear diff case, etc ) I believe the Kyosho team might been feedback to make some improvement on that. New design i do like it and it did bring improvement that just good for me to decide my next will be the R4. At the end it end up on how i setup the car, racing handling with good phase. Thanks and good luck in Winternat Peter..MikeS, Ralph diffinetely will be the "beast' on that track.
