shock oil: 50
oneway diff
droop:1mm

rear:
ride height: 5.5mm
camber: 3.5 degree
toe in: 3 degree
swaybar: black
springs: silver
shock oil:50
rear diff oil: 15,000wt kyosho
droop:3-4mm depending on the technicality of the track

body: mazda 6
tyres: GRP 37sh front and rear

this setup makes the car ULTRA nimble but still very stable into the corner, i also found that with this setup only run about 0.5-1mm of split between the tyres, the car isnt taily but has excellent turn in and has alot more of a responsive feel.
My setup was relatively similar--
Front ride height- 5.5mm
Front camber- -2 deg
Front toe- out 1deg
Roll bar- flat
Front one-way used
Front droop- 0
Springs- Black

Rear- toe-in- 3deg
Rear camber- -3deg
Rear droop- 4mm
Rear diff oil- stock 30000wt
Shock oil- 500wt all round

Body: Mazda 6 Protoform
Power tyres- 35 shore
An interesting point was quite a few drivers went to running front diffs......Ric apparently ran a front diff, but I`m not sure whether or not he changed back to one-way for the final?......i know Ron changed to a diff in his RRR for the last heat and said he regretted it....I`m not sure if he had time to change back to a one-way for his final....which he won.
Cheers

Default RRR

There are 2 versions of the car. The W/C or Team has all of the option parts on it. Kyosho only made 1 batch of these cars.

ric ran a solid front axle in the final, but he ran black front springs and gold rear springs to compensate slight understeer the solid axle would give you over the oneway. he commented that the car handle beautifully in the final and the car was only slightly pushing on the sweeper. he also noted that having the addition of brakes was a masive bonus

The brakes wouldve been a very nice bonus indeed...... i was tempted at one stage to go with a front diff, but my heat times kept coming down with a few subtle changes here and there, so i opted to continue with the one-way.

The front solid axle is my favorite so far. I feel it makes the steering feel more linear and smooth.

Hi guys,

I was wondering what would be the of effect putting the 24T mid pulley and running even diameter tires as against the 23T pullley and a 2mm diameter split between the front and rear tires..thanks.

I haven't tried it personally cause I lost my 24t pulley but I have been told it takes out the aggressive nature of the steering when running equal diameter tires front and rear. I will be running it though on my other car when I build it. The split from running the 23t pulley just complicates the handling.

The car handles great with the 2mm split and 23t pulley but it can be a handful to drive depending on traction as the split wears away.

If you want to stock up and order a bunch of stuff at the same time the best and cheapest way to do this is to get them directly from Japan. I buy from Pro Shop Futaba and they are quick, reliable and takes PayPal. Just email them with a list of parts you need and they will email you back with availability and cost.

Man this guy is a moron.
Hes the same guy that tried to rip off 2 guys on another forum topic, I think on these same boards.
He basically kept there money on a false sale and then has the sheer cheek to ask if he could pay it back in installments to the guy he had ripped off.
No one can stand the guy, and to be honest he seems like he's utterly retarded with some of his posting.
So if hes offering to sell his serpent kit saying that the RRR is so good and he wants one then STAY AWAY!!!!!

Got My VoneRRR WC edition coming tomorrow! any tips at all?!
