I thought, I asked before, but maybe not - do you know the part number for the standard (omm offset) rear universals that will fit the RRR?

I finally got around to running my RRR WC today.
Was not impressed with some bits, like adjusting the clutch, I tried the same way as on the FW05 but I could not get the adjuster to budge, so I had to keep taking the motor out until I got it to start biting, in the end I had to place a 3mm ball bearing in each shoe weight.
I ran the car as per instruction but with a spool up front (I'm just too brake happy), but I found this gave severe understeer in to the corners and then a sudden snap of the steering when powered applied, so I thought I'd put a diff in the front, but then came another hic up, I didn't have enough bits to make a diff, so I put the spare TCD in the rear with the black oil and tried the car again (still with front spool), the difference was huge, far less understeer (less than an FW05) and no snatch when power applied.
I've only done 6/7 tanks but I am lapping faster than with the FW05, and I have yet to find my ideal car setting (it's still a bit nervous).
Only thing to have peed me off was the pipe, a brand new Max Power pipe and the spring has already pulled through the hole at the motor end of the manifold. Why does they use such weak alloy? I will have to get a small jubilee clip to go around the header so I can attach the spring again.

What else can I say, car is fast in both straight line and corners.
Could this be the end of my FW05 ?

Interesting NiMo. I am glad the RRR is working for you. I will suggest that you try the oneway just for kicks. I use brake too and you can adjust it so that it's just enought to slow you down without spinning you out.

I have the same experience with the Max pipe. If weren't for the fact that 2615 pipe works so well I wouldn't have put up with that manifold. I will try the Skyline pipe next since it worked well with my FW05.

I have the LSD kit but never tried it on the RRR. I tried on the FW05 and it made the car undrivable.
