whats up jeff,
i use the 4mm rear shock tower. but do you think the 3mm shock tower would be better for handling purposes? what i mean is that the 4mm shock tower stiffens up the rear end a lot, kindof how the 4mm chasis stiffens up the entire car. maybe with the 4mm shock tower you lose a little of the flex that the rrr has, which i think is one of the things that makes the rrr so good. food for thought, what is your opinion?

I don't feel a difference between the shock towers. However, the chassis matters quite a bit more. I've tried the optional stiffer gun metal chassis and found the original silver chassis to work better.

The chassis links the frond and rear ends of the car together. It playes a MUCH bigger part in the cars handling.

Pretty obvious really. It also gives you place to put the motor, tank and radio gear....

The worst part of the car are the rear diff outdrives. You have to replace those more than anything else on the car. Stock up on 5-6 pairs.

if you have been waiting to receive your RRR WC, your LHS should start receiving them in the next days or so. If your hobby shop does not them have on order, let them know Kyosho does have them in stock.
