I think that would be true in an ideal situation. This is why the FW05R works so well when ther's good traction and the track is smooth. But in most cases where traction is low and track being bumpy it could be a detriment.

has anyone tried the new kyosho factory 7075 chasis for the rrr? I tweaked my old chasis in a bad wreck and picked up this new 7075 chasis and was wondering what responses people have had. The old chasis carried me through 10 gallons so id say it was strong enough but hey there was a 7075 chasis for exactly the same price....
cheers

The new chassis part number is VZW-214, the design and material are the same as the stock chassis but in gun metal, the only different is there is no cutout for the battery tray, the batt is mount directly onto the chassis.

rcosmax: I dun think the new chassis is available in US yet, I will be running it this weekend. Maybe we can both share our experience with the new chassis and post it here. I think the chassis should provide less flex, as there are not cut out for the batt tray and more suitable for high traction track. But I could be wrong.

It's not Kyosho's web site either. I am in Taiwan now and I will check with the LHS and see if they have it. I think stiffer longitudinally is probably a good idea since the only thing supporting front and rear of the chassis on top is that plastic chassis brace. Personally I think it contributed to the fuel tank problem. However, I hestitate to change since the current setup handles so well.

I just found out another thing that's not on the web site. Kyosho just came out with a titanium 2 speed shaft for the RRR.

Thanks for the info. Was the original rrr chasis a 7075 grade chasis? I thought it wasnt. The new packaging says sp 7075. the SP marker usually means they have used a higher grade allum. (or higher quality material)than the stock component. I dont know how it will run but it looks slick! It would make changing out a battery a little longer as you have the battery mounted with 2side tape and glass tape, but this may lower the cg a tiny bit more because the battery is actually lower than the mounting surface of the chasis. I will be hitting the track this weekend (rained out the last 3 weekends ) ill let everyone how it performs.

i was busting a tank every other week, but after a careful soldering of the tank joint and slightly larger upperdeck mounting holes and 2 seals on the cap that problem is gone and the tank seems to be holding together much better. these tips were all suggested by guys on here but it took me awile to get around to them all. A slightly more longitudinally rigid chasis will help too as Jeffreylin said above. The rrr seems to have so much adjustability it may be able to handle a stiffer chasis with some setup changes.

Its worthwhile to also get a new pulley (then theres no having to swap them between the one-way and front diff/spool)....its the same pulley as the one-way.....pulley set part # is VZ203.

There are no issue's fitting the solid axle in, i think your problem is you have used the inside spacer on the pully??? You dont need that bit, the axle should float in between the bulkheads...

What you also have to do is space the ballcups down 1mm on the servo saver, this will then clear the housing.

As for using a solid at Fairy Medow, well im not sure thats the gun setup....

See ya on Sunday..

Hey kyle, hows things?

yeh, i did glue the damn side onto the pulley ok so thats a solution to problem one fixed, thanks mate hopefully i got another spare 27t front pulley here... or i might be swearing again lol

also for problem two, just space the pillowbals on the ackerman down 1mm correct? so in effect lowering the position of the front tierods connect to ackerman.

thanks bud! now i might be this saturday for a test!

Hi Cory,

No worries glad i could help out. Yes for problem 2 as well, just space them down and all will be fine. Things are going pretty good, were happy with the progress being made, we have learnt quite a bit about the car since the NSW State Titles, so yeah were moving foward which is good!!

Yes we are racing at the Winter Cup thingo, should be a great event.

Hope to see you there

Regards

Kyle

I saw VZW102 & VZW103, but they are marked up as V1-S3 parts.
Could they be also for the RRR?

Can't say. I just ordered the titanium 2 speed shaft from HK and I will let you know if that is what it is when I get it.
