jwfFrani-I think I'll also give the 1 deg. hubs a try next week and see if the car feels better. Where were you? You made the A main.

Can anybody tell me if the 3racing rear swing arm 007A has a 2mm offset for the RRR?

Cheers

Default extended bumper

guys,

does kyosho already have an extended front plastic bumper (lola-type, similar to the V1rr Evo) for the RRR? I doubt the one for the RR Evo would fit ( i could be wrong). anyone know if the evolva plastic bumper would fit?


Thanks in advance!

The evolva one is too big

jwf_frani, what part of handling does the 1 degree hubs smoothen out? I notice that the 0* seems pretty aggressive on mid to exit. Not so good on power. I'm also running a one-way.

the 1 deg trailing block seems to smooth out entry and doesn't seem to square up the car coming in and it does help with on power steering.

Yes, indeed. It is a P6 turbo plug. So, is this plug suitable for high temp (hot)?

Thanks, I'll give them a try. What do you set your caster setting at on the inside hinge pin?
