may i also ask if its possible to use a fw-05R clutch on the RRR im thinking about the RRR but i just purchased a new FW-05R clutch and dont wanna waste it.
The RRR also comes with the gray clutch shoe instead of the black.

You can use the FW clutch as long as you switch out the clutchbell and the approriate pinions. The only difference you should be aware of is the clutch spring. Since it's different, the adj. nut setting will not transfer over. The 4D spring included with the RRR does not need as much tension as the 3D spring.

I drove the car with my FW clutch and just changed out the clutchbell with no problems.

Default Just came back

from my LHS and YEEEEEEEEEES I bought an RRR !! I was going to get the Fw 05R first since I heared it's easier to drive and I'm not that professional, anyways I couldn't resist the quality and bought one!! I got it for $ 385 which is excellent considering I'm living in Kuwait.
Still didn't get a body or an Engine yet since the LHS doesn't have the Novarossi 5 ports until another 3 weeks.
I just wanted to share my excitement with you guys since you helped me a lot in making my decision by reading all your posts, also if you think i should know any tips or hints during building the kit please let me know.

peace

the only tip or hint that will really help you is to make sure that the sus arms have free movement. If there is binding take a 3mm drill bit and run it through both holes on the sus arms at the same time to line the holes up perfectly, reassemble and check and repeat if needed. Do a little at a time and check to avoid taking out too much material. Also set the front and rear belts on the loose tension setting and they will run in smoothly.

Have fun and congrats on buying the World champion touring car!

Does everybody user the kit setup such as front shock pistons with one hole and 500 wt oil?

I will build mine exactly like the kit and see what I need to change. I dont run a rear roll bar usually

Ziggy, I would build the car exactly as per the instructions including the rear bar, run the car on foam and keep us informed.

There are a number of options not noted in the instructions. It shows the one way so I'll use that but what servo saver do you use? I used the middle one, 11 i think

Also what position for the inserts on the suspention? I used B High for all inserts.

The only other option was the rear upper camber link. It shows using ball ends in the instructions but there is an alternative that looks like the V-one-RR rear links. There are no inserts for it so I ordered some 6x3x2.5 bearings to go inside. I also changed the servo saver inserts for 10x6x3 bearings

Do they make CVJ's for this yet? I cant stand dogbones!

Has anybody had any trouble with the rear belt hiting the deck? It almost sticks out below the chasis! (G4!)

Cheers
