I`m not sure if an actual "upgrade kit" exists, but all the parts are available as single items, so it`d be a case of buying the RRR and then getting the individual parts to take it to WC spec`s.

The option parts together will probably run you around $100~150 depending on where you get them.

Default shock oil for bumpy medium traction track ?

I use silver springs on the front and black on the rear
currently have been using the stock weight
would it be better to go down to a softer oil or a harder oil ?

thanks
John

Default Front Diff!

Hey Guys!

I am confused as to which outdrives i need to make a front diff? Is it VZ219 or VZ218? And what size screws will i need? 2.6 x 8mm were used for the rear are they going to be the same?

Also, Do i use the same main pulley from the oneway on a diff and what screws do i use to fasten this down?

I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

VZ218 Should be the correct out drive. For the Screews you want to use 1147, Size is 2.6x8 TP F/H.

Get JP if money is not an object. However, they might be hard to tune, and stay tuned.

If you want a reliable and dependable power plant, that is very competitive you should look into the Rex Novarossi line of engines. Rex engines are fast, easy to tune and stay tuned. The pipe and header combo, mugen 2609 pipe with conical header. Jp engines are a great choice too, but can be difficult to tune at times. later dude

JP is no harder to tune than the others. It is in my opinion a very reliable engine. Get the FX12 T-03M full option with ceramic bearing if money is no object.

Having said that, all the other suggestions are good too.

No doubt Jp is great, but wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy over priced for the full option ceramic bearing. Last time I checked $$$$ is an object!

If this is your first time for on-road racing, $$$ is going to be an issue, unless you have very deep pockets!!

Max Power modified engines are great too, just as fast as JP but much less expensive. (usually around US$370)
