Thanks in advance

I`m quite pleased with the 30000wt in the rear diff. Last weekends Sydneys nitro GP was run a track that sounds similar to the track you plan to race on (tight/low-med traction)and the 30000wt was fine.

Thanks!
A solid will have the same acceleration out of a corner that a front one-way has, as power is being applied evenly to both wheels.
The diff may experience some "slipping"/uneven power distribution out of a corner and hence a front one-way or solid should accelerate faster.
The diff should however provide more turn-in steering than a solid when off-power (fine tune this using different weight diff oils).
The RRR`s drivetrain seems very durable, but a solid will place more strain on drivetrain components than either a diff or one-way.
Cheers

I like the solid in the car. The car still has enough steering to be very aggressive with the solid, but still very planted. Hard breaking seems to go through belts faster than the one way. I also notice with the solid that the brakes fade big time, I have to dial in more brake every few minutes. I noticed at Winternats that the one way was faster, the solid would not allow me to get through the S turns fast enough.I don't use it everywhere, but a front solid will always be in my toolbox for this car.

I have pictures, but they are too big to post, and I don't have a program to resize them. I can email them to you and you can resize them

Thanks guys for helping me with my setup, the tail has settled down now and I knocked 1 second off my lap times but now the front wheels are hopping when I accelerate out of the corners. Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can fix it.

I got my V-One RRR WC edition today and I noticed some more things that weren't mentioned earlier.

1) the car comes with 4 extra bearings, 2 for the servo saver and 2 for the throttle linkage arm.

2) Most importantly, the rear universals use the short axles which means that you have to use 2mm offset tires in the rear or switch over to different universals in the rear. That is about the only thing I'm dissapointed in.

The 37 shore tires on new wheels that come with the kit are awesome. They are my favorite design and the look pretty strong as well.

Default Final Drive Ratio

Sorry if this has been discussed,but, what is the feeling on drive ratio (side pully) and tire dia.

I usually don't like a very loose car (too old) so I tend to run bigger front tires to settle the car down when I run a car with the same ratio front and back. As the main goes on the rears tend to wear more so by mid race the balance is very good, this usually make the car a little pushy at the start but it is much better from mid race on, at least the way I drive.

Any thoughts?

Hi Grinder,

I experienced a lot of diff to left front bulkhead binding when I tried putting in a spool..does any part require some modification to fit?

Anyone's 2 cents will be appreciated!

personally I prefer to run the 24T mid pulley and have a 1mm split..front wheel drive bias..good steering no push..pulls rear along very tame
