If a race is on this weekend, you could bend my arm.

When is the next race in florida.

Is Kevin ready to put on a practise day at Kissimmee yet?

i dont know. i have not heard anything from them yet... i dont think andy will have a race this weekend, probably not enough time to get people together. i think i might have seen you there 1 time. you should come down more often. it is a nice facility... now. andy really has really made the track nice compared to how it used to be.

I am happy to hear that. I have never been there because I heard that the track was too bumpy, too small for 1/8th, funky layout and management problems.

Good to hear that these things have been resolved.

I'll call Kevin later and see if they are ready for a practise session next weekend.

I need to order some stuff for the local guys so I will wait till next week when the stuff arrives before flying up.

the track still has a couple bumps, but not that big of a deal. andy is actually working on that now. but the 1/8th guys raced all weekend on the track, and there was no problems at all. the facility is nice. you have to come down and check it out. the problem is, including myself as well, is that racers get too picky and complain about everything. we all need to take a step back and be thankful we are not racing in a parking lot.

Also check you havent lost any teeth of the rear diff during the crash.

Thanks..... I checked the manual as you said. I was setup on as normal. I will put up a new setup as tight. with the new pulley and belt.

thanks again for the help.

doug,
royal palm is working on setting up an enduro.... hopefully it will be on 6/18... would you come and race? you only probably need to have two other racers on your team. it will be a lot of fun. probaly we can have up to 12 teams... we have probaly four or so now, so it is starting to fill. so far, my team is me, eric gonzalez and danny horta.

Running with less castor will tame down the turn-in.

Default Front diff gear parts

Hi guys,

I think in WC edition, you have an option for front one way or diff gear, so i dont need to buy any more parts except from 'diff gear set' and i think a tcd will do... is that correct?

I really like to use front one way but the car spin out when i brake, if anyone can give me some tips on how to setup a one way in a low traction track... i will really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

all you need to run a front diff are the diff gears and the drive cups. you can also look at the manual. there is a detailed list on the part numbers you need to order to convert the worlds kit to a regular front diff. you may also see this at kyosho's website at www.kyosho.co.jp under the rrr section...

hmm...i seem to have difficulty finding the parts listed to convert the rrr wce to a regular front diff. anyways, i looked it up in my manual. here goes:

VZ218 differential joint (19)
VZ012 differential gear set
BS107 bevel shaft
VZ203 pulley set (rrr)
VZ204 differential pulley set (rrr)

hope this helps

Default TNX DOK!

If i am not mistaken this is the same in the Kyosho website right? i have some extra diff gears in my vone SII do you think i can use that... about the pulley set is there any extra pulley included in the WC kit or i really need to get this part.

Ive tried to put my VoneSII TCD and it works fine...
