i have to agree with that since same thing also happenned to me my RR evo front universal bent when it hit the gutter of the track while the kyosho ones did'nt just have some scratches might as well wait for k-factory or kawahara if they going to make one for the RRR

Has anyone noticed that the roll bar mounts foul the camber links?
They actually stop you applying more droop.
I think the roll bar could do with more angle on the wire.

Mine JUST touch after some fiddling with the way the steel ball end was screwed onto the roll bar, and also turning the ball cups at the top to a different angle.
Have a look and see what you think. They DO touch when the rear arms droop, but while on the ground under normal wieght i think the just clear.
Shocking.

Dude you will never need that much droop unless you are running off road. But even before that anti roll bar interfere with your droop it's the length of your shock you need to worry about if you need more droop.

I thought someone mentioned that the rear wheels need to be toe out by 2 deg. Is this correct? I don't see it in the manual

I am thinking about buying a setup system. I know. I don't race, and I can't race. But, the rc-toro 5% off coupon is so tempting. And I think the setup system will help me a lot. Hudy is too expensive. How about PMB? Thx.

move the sway bar mounts in towards the rear bulk head if its a problem, just a smidge, enought so it doesnt touch.

Rear wheels need 2 degrees toe-in, not out.

The K-Factory universals are weak as wood. You don't even have to hit anything and they'll bend. This was back in the V-One RR days, so not sure how they are now. I'd only buy Kyosho universals.

i'm with you...the k-factory universal bend easily. i've had a team kyosho universal set on my v-one-r and up to now, no problems with it. my v-one r kit is almost 5 years old...
