The only place i know is around Akihabara area, i use to visit 4 shops there, Rakusei, Futaba-Sangyo, Super-Radicon and Champ RC. If you know how to get there, I have a map with the location of the shops...

not much more. you would benefit more from preparing your standard car bearings properly and driving more consistently.

Depends on the track layout and surface youre racing on, but a good starting point would be 3 degrees toe in and -3 degrees camber on the rear.

Default V1RRR cannot get to 2nd speed

Tried to re-adjust the gears but my RRR cannot engage the 2nd gear? What is the error and what should I do?

Sorry I am still new to this hobby.

Thanks a lot guys.

Default 2 speed setting

try setting it back to the book plus 1 extra turn
i t hink the book is 3 turns from closed so go 4 turns from close then adjust from there

all depends on your engine rpm, maybe its shifting into 2nd straight away ?

does it take off quick or take off normally then gradually pick up speed ?

This means 4 full turns ?

Engine used is a Sirio Evo3 and it takes off normally fast. But it just doesn't get to 2nd gear even though I pump the throttle. Usually in 2nd gear, there should be a noticeable kick in the car when moving. However, when I hold the car up and full throttle, I notice there is a "kick" to move in 2nd gear. But when I put the car down on the track, the 2nd gear doesn't kick.

I kind off dinked my pipe before and the stinger was pushed in. Could this be the fault also?

Sounds like the pipe. Replace your pipe before you try to do anything drastic with your 2 speed setting.

When you hold the car to test if the second gear is kicking in. Do you slowly raise the revs to find the pickup point and if so where in the rev range does it pickup ?

Going to Japan this December, Only in Tokyo for 2 days so won't have much time to shop around. Is there any car better than this for the same price and where is the cheapest and best hobby shop in Tokyo.

Thanks

It is possible to see the performances, this type of CONICAL

5 fins manifold - short type (best solution on long straights)

6 fins manifold - medium type (suggested to have more push exiting curves and on the straight)

7 fins manifold - long type (more power exiting curves)
