A solid has the same on-power characteristics as a one-way, but the solid offers the advantage of braking being applied to the front wheels when you need greater braking......good for tight tracks.
Off-power the one-way will offer better turn-in.

So what off set wheels are U guys using for your RRR. I know Hot shoes makes an offset rear wheel. I have not seen an ellegi offset? Are there many choices?

Joe, you are probably measuring the droop from the wrong place. Look at the manual carefully , the droop is measured from a point below the arm and not from the bottom of the rear uprights as other manufacturers do.

I used the stock measurement and it worked fine. I was also using the upgraded rear shock tower. Not sure if that made a difference

I got the impression from Kyosho's website that they will start manufacture of them again in June.

Try Kyoshoamerica or RC-mushroom

I`m pretty sure that Fast Tyres make an offset wheel (2mm that suits the MTX3)

I use the stock brake pads with the Kawahara disc and it works great.

I found GQ 37's to work best on my track, but found it impossible to get them without 2mm offset.
