the more vertical the shocks are the more stiffer the suspension will become. this ussually gives you less traction as your limiting the weight transfer to that particular side.

I need a new chassis for the RRR. has anybody any comments on the different ones available compared to the kit supplied ones.

The Skyline one looks nice but its made from material 2/1/2 times stronger than the original so would expect it to be too stiff.

Kyosho also do a 7075-T6 version and what about the 4mm one?

Any comments anybody?

Cheers

The Skyline one should be made of the same material as the stock one. People who uses it tells me that there is virtually no difference.

Kyosho makes 2 chassis for the RRR, the stock one and another without the battery plate opening and in the bronze color. They are identical in thickness and material otherwise. I tried it and I feel that it made the car push a little.

The skyline one is made from 7075-T6 Aluminium. The stock from 615 There is a difference in tensile strengh. The 7075 is around 83K psi and the 615 around 30K Psi

The Kyosho one without the battery plate is also 7075 so i can assume any thicker or stiffer chassis plate will make the car push a little

I would like to soften the front but get too much steering so might try a stiffer chassis. The skyline one looks like the best bet

Cheers

With the shocks mounted in a more vertical position that end of the car will have a stiffer suspension and thus have less weight transfer to it......this will result in less grip at that end of the car.

The height of the tensioner? You adjust the belt tension by rotating the bearing holder slightly. Do you have a manual? if not, you can download one from the kyosho web site.

The FRP middle i have mounts into where the original went (2 x mounting screws) and then the belt tension is adjusted by moving the bearing/tensioning wheel up and down in its new position on the middle plate.

hey guys,

I'm over here building my new "WC" and I am very upset and SUPRISED that I have some missing parts right out of the sealed box:
  • BRG002: 5x8x2.5mm bearings (2)
  • VZ221: 5mm Posts (2 of them)
  • BRG006: 6x12x4 bearings (2 of them)
  • ORG03BK: P3 O-Rings (none were in the kit)
It really suprised me to see the missing items, and I can get most of them from my LHS, but the 5mm posts are gonna be impossible to get here in town in order for me to finish the kit....
anybody know where I can get V One RRR Parts (on the West Coast perferably) ASAP?????

can anyone help?????
