Just wondered what the purpose of them was. Maybe the small peg on the bottom is meant to only just touch the roll bar with the smallest possible surface contact?

God knows.

You must use it for roll bars 2mm and smaller. It may not sit flat but that does not matter. The small peg is meant to touch the roll bar slightly without causing bind. The purpose is so that there is no slop in the anti-roll action. you can check by taking the rear shocks off and see if lifting one of the wheels will lift the other almost immediately. If it does not then the anti-roll bar is not installed properly. Check from both sides to ensure the actions are even.

I will take out the old chassis today and compare. I know the cut out makes a difference but the new chassis just seem that much more stiffer. Have you tried your car with the new chassis? Can you tell the difference.

I also got the titanium 2 speed shaft last night and for $15 or so it seems to be a very good upgrade. I will compare the weight between the ti shaft and the stock one tonight and post the result here.

Dont forget after each race meet to give the clutch bearings a good clean/lube and check their condition as well.
If the front/rear clutch bearings fail, the metal shards will make a mess of your thrust bearing
I use Trinity Royal Oil to lube the bearings and have found this to work quite well.......another racer recommended to use Mugen Super Grease on the thrust bearing with which he`s been very pleased.

Default Titanium 2 speed shaft

Stock steel 2 speed shaft = 20g
Titanium 2 speed ahft = 12g
That's a big difference in rotating mass.

Keep an eye on the Ti shaft. Mine wore out very quickly.

The new Kyosho one? I know 3Racing has one too but Kyosho one should be better. I used a Square Ti shaft in my FW05R and that thing hardly wears at all.

Default Front gear diff

Can anybody recommend a good starting weight diff oil when running a front gear diff? We run mostly on tight tracks.

Thanks,

I had the pin holes wear and the part that 1st gear sits on siezed to the shaft. It also bent. It is the 3 racing shaft.

I just installed the new chassis. It is stiffer but mostly longitudinally. Installing the battery was a pain but you can move your battery slightly left to acheive a better weight balance. I don't think it will affect the handling much but we will know for sure after this weekend's race.

I think the stock steel one bends just as much if you hit it during a crash. I've been lucky but it seem many of my friend's RRRs have their shaft bent at least once.
