Well, I'm glad to hear that they're still going strong.

Now I know why Mizan was driving the RRR!

Try the 3-racing brake disc.
I`ve had the 3-racing disc in my RRR since i built it, and have found that this disc combined with the aluminium brake arm give good results.
According to the review of the RRR in Feb`s RC Car Action, they claim that the stock disc is stamped making the brake surface uneven.....the high spots on the stock disc turn into hot spots when braking, and this leads to brake fade.

I think a lot of the Hong Kong shops still have them, try rcmart or rcsquare.

I know that a UK online hobby store still has limited numbers of RRR W/C Edition left.

Try www.benracing.co.uk

Default Brakes

Hey guys. Thanks for all the input. I will try your suggestions. I only have one more race this year locally that will require the use of brakes. This week we will be at a rather small track. The other places I race are nice and open so timing works as well or better than brakes.

Peace, Tenderfoot

So I guess when you find RRR parts to run the car again, ntc3freak will not have any chance buying the car anymore, eh?

Default Shocks for RRR

Hey guys,

I lost a shock this weekend. The top came unscrewed and the shock body dragged the asphalt messing up the threads in the process. Can I use the RR shock bodies with the RRR shafts?
