The geometry of the RRR is designed for high traction tracks.
Nuts... I have a WC coming that i just bought and the track i run on is low traction and VERRY VERRY bumpy. it is more like off road than on road.

So this car will be no good to me then????

I have an origonal v one rr that keeps up with the Mugens ( yes even the MTX3 pro spec ) with JP black engines. I run 40 front and 37 rear and have bad understeer aswell as some oversteer. Mostly because of the slipery track. That is why i am getting the rrr. Hopefully i can do better than second in the A main with it With the rr i have come 2nd five years in a row...Some would say thats not bad at all but I WANT TO WIN

Big difference dude the specs are a few pages back.

Yes it can but it would be cheaper to buy a WC endition than do a stock one up.

1 thing that gave it away for me was the engine mount. The World Campion edition comes with a 1 piece engine mount

By the looks of it it has lost of WC parts on it already so building it up the rest of the way shouldent cast much at all.


One piece engine mount? What diffrence dose that make??? Not much if you ask me..

No I have a regular one but it's been upgraded to full WC spec except the rear shock tower. I am also using the longer rear universal so I don't have to get tires with offset.

RRR works just fine with bumpy low traction tracks. In fact, the worlds track was so bumpy they were running 6mm+ ride height so I've heard.

To stop the car rolling move the roll centre. On bumpy tracks use the high roll centre inserts for the rear bottom and the lowest for the front upper. This will move the roll centre higher which will give more stability over the bumps and less roll in the corners even with softer springs
