If you want any alumium upgrades, get the front swaybar holders (they keep better droop settings). Kyosho optional brake pads, Skyline rear shock tower and pipe support are some other "worthy" hop-ups.
does kyosho make the sway bar holders?....... another thing about 3racing stuff is that they never fit exactly the same as factory stuff does... i think this is because they do not have access to kyosho CAD designs. i do not know for sure, but they probably take the original and make the CAD from that... and this is probably why there is tiny discrpencies. this is just my theory on this and i may be completely wrong.

No one make Ti sway bar holders. Just get the 3Racing alum. ones. A Kyosho sponsored racer told me that Kyosho gets them from 3Racing, otherwise known as the World Space Cad Industrial Company. I'm sure Kyosho thuroughly tests each 3Racing product to see what's worth their while to sell under the Kyosho name, so they don't have to machine the parts themselves.

Will the aftermarket swaybar holders from past versions of the V-One R (RR, RR EVO) fit the RRR?

If this is the case, that means 3 Racing's fitting should be ok. They must have CAD from Kyosho directly in order to manufacture parts for them.

JoeMugen, what are the parts from 3 Racing doesn't fit well with V1RRR?

I think my friend tried that and it was too tight.

I was thinking of getting the s9451 but the specs are almost the same and I have a brand new s9550.

Also, still looking for suggestions on a throttle/brake servo. I am assuming non-digital, right?
I use KO2344 digital servo for throttle on both of my RRRs and never had a problem.

They also have Kyosho parts for V1RRR. And 3Racing parts for V1RRR. I really want to buy some 3 Racing and replace some plastic with titanium/aluminum. Is 3Racing parts really that bad?? Their price seems to be attractive.
I have not had very good experience with 3Racing stuff. I think they use lower grade material and tend to bend/break easily. If there is a Kyosho one I will always get the Kyosho hop up or just keep things stock. The only 3Racing upgrade I had on my car was the aluminum brake lever and I took that off as soon as Kyosho came out with one.

i havent tried any for the rrr... but i am not saying they don't fit properly, but i am saying they are just a hair off. i always got a little play with them... they just were not an exact match... but then again i am very picky.

I found the ones that came with the kit to be pretty good.
I bought a full set of aftermarket titanium screws as spares and in terms of quality i reckon the stock kit ones are better (much closer tolerances)

I`ve used a few 3-Racing parts on the RRR...some good, some not so...
The one piece engine mount seemed to have a poor tolerance on one of the underside mounting holes....some racers have mentioned it can warp...i havent experienced this though.
The l/w clutch bell has worked fine.
The rear diff housing has been fine.
The rear shock tower offers an additional shock position and a bit more bracing in the middle section than the stock one, but I`ve had one of these break....looks like its a 4mm one next for me

yeah, I also picked 2344. 2364 would have been better but more expensive.

This long weekend I will be 100% dedicated on putting the car together
