Oh, one last question.

Are there any parts on the WC edition even worth having to put on a normal rrr ? Things that will make it handel better and put in faster lap times is what i am after. Things that make it stronger do not concern me. hehe i dont crash... much

The one piece engine mount will make your chassis stiffer and dissipate heat better.

The side plate will move your belt tensioner toward the rear so your side belt won't touch the header.

The new upperdeck has a design that help prevent the tank air leak problem.

The universals could be more efficient than dogbones.

Hey Guys!!! Just started the assembly of a WC kit

Did any of you, who have the WC kit, use the front diff as a rigid axis?
Are the new ball ends provided with the WC kit lower enough to fit with the diff, or is there still the problem with the ballcaps hitting the diff case?

I thought the idea of a 3mm chassis was to flex a bit for bumpy track handeling.

I agree. But if you look at your car there is really only one plastic bar supporting the front and rear section of the car. If you remove (or if the screw comes loose) you can actually bend your chassis slightly. The engine mount helps that a bit.

hi,
i have installed the new radio tray on my car. are you suppose to put rubber groumets (spelling) inbetween the gas tank and radio tray on the front and rear screw? thanks in advance i did but it seems as though it makes the tank bind a bit... it is not as free.

The once piece engine mount will make the chassis a bit stiffer, which is good for many circuits which are so bumpy - Brazil was a bit extreme. Also a big advantage of the one piece is that it reduces the stresses on the engine - with the two piece engine mounts, the engine twists a lot more - which isn't so good.

So it isn't just the one advantage, there are quite a few for the one piece.

The fuel tank should install the same as the stock, which means you should place an o-ring (front and rear) between the upper deck and the tank. You should not tight the screws all the way but leave them a bit loose (but not too loose) so the tank can slide back forth if pushed.

Do I have to run offset with the WC??

The rear universal in the WC edition is 2mm shorter thus you will need to run 2mm offset rear tires or put 2mm spacer outside the wheel hex to make it 200mm. However, this is not necessary a bad thing as it is yet another tuning option that allow you to narrow your rear quickly without touching the pivot ball screws and thus affecting rear toe.

You can also replace it with the regular universal if that's what you prefer.

jefferylin,
let me see if i understand correctly. the only difference with the two mm offset is that if you set your car up to 200mm with the 2mm offset, but for the main (for whatever reason) i want my car to be 196mm i just put on rim without an offset. also, even though it has a 2mm offset, running rims with no offset will work fine? (assuming you make your track width using the no offset tires)
