There are no links for parts. They give you a list of local hobby shops that carry Kyosho as I listed 2 in KY. You can also try calling Kyosho America direct to order parts.

car feels good in all the high speed sections but is giving me fits in slow speed corners, this is the strange part its going on during power on exit of the corners
set up is
shocks 60wt all four corners
gold springs up front, black in the rear
shockes lay all the way down both ends
1/2 toe out in the front
3 toe in on the rear
0 droop in the front, up stops set so chassie does not bootom out
1 droop in the rear, up stops set same as front
2 1/2 neg camber in the rear
2 neg in the front
37 shore all the way around
3 mm split on the tires
high traction surface.
Most important question would be how tall are your tires? 37's are really soft and sloppy. Unless your sidewall is really short / low profile your gonna get alot of movement just with the foam causing your car not to be as responsive. Also, your sidewall will just roll under causing the car to traction roll. With a switch back or S section in the track you could be over compensating for the lack of responce from your tires and really tossing the car from side to side until you get the tire to roll under causing the traction roll.

(pork chop) it's has to be in the set up, car was real good till they did that. maybe more camber or more roll center in the back?

Sounds to me like everybody was looser (harder tires) than you. Your set up looks typical however the 3 degree toe-in seem high. Also you could try to accelerate through the section therefore unloading the front end and planting the rear. Maybe a slower entry and accelerate through. Check your ride height / tire size and sidewall condition (edges seperating from rim) / and try a harder tire all around. Just some thoughts......

hey,I thought that to, only problem with that was that what the fast guys were running for tires.
I did true them down to 60 in the rear and 57 in the front thinking that it my be a side wall problem, ect still had the same problem. think that the harder tire might be the answer.
would adding spacers under the camber link on the rear up right add or take away traction in the rear?
i was running 4mm in the front and 5mm in the rear for ride

  • 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?????

Did you try rc-toro.com? They have many V1RRR parts. I bought my WCE from them. I just checked. They have the 5mm posts you are looking for.

Lucky for you the conditions will be totally different next week. I'de leave the setup as is until next race. If you still have traction rolling problems definately go up in shore and maybe even lower the overall CG of the car (ride height / body height). You could also go with a stiffer (oil / spring / sway) setup. Ok.... that's all I have. If all else fails... slow before entry and pull thru.

"Why?" doesn't Kyosho list the use of the 24t pulley to use a "0"mm offset, and with the use of the "standard" 23t pulley to use a "2"mm offset between the front & back tire, so why even think about using a 25t pulley, wouldnt that mean you would have to have a "larger" front tire???? Why would you go with a 25t pulley, when Kyosho desn't even list the option on the set up sheet (do you chande drive ratios w/ a differ belt?? (384 or 387 belt????)

I am just curious to hear.... don't kill me I am just asking.....I wanna understand these cars as I just switched (and yet to run the car) from a Mugen MTX3 from the past 2+ years...

"school" me....

He's running the V ONE RR Evo. The pulleys and gearing are completely different than the RRR.
