i would say the os tz 3 port. ive seen them run they are very fast motors and probably one of the easiest to tune, plus they are much less expensive, leaving more $$$ for fuel, tires, ect.
not sure about a pipe, have only had a ntc3, and of course only 2 good pipe options for that that dont work on any other car beside the ld3

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

Theyre quite hard to get, but if you can manage to get some Kawahara foam tyres theyre supposed to be excellent.
The Ellegi`s, Jaco Nitro Shoes, and Power Tyres are all quite good.....I have found though that the Jaco`s tend to lose their rim shape easier than the Ellegis/Power Tyres.
Cheers

Shock oil will either speed up or slow down weight transfer and shock action, so it`ll depend on which type of track surface youre racing on.
If its smooth/high traction try a heavier oil....this`ll make the car more stable with direction changes.....especially in chicanes etc
For a bumpier track try a softer oil....this allows faster weight transfer/shock action and will help provide better traction and grip.
If its EC youre racing at, I usually run the stock weight oil there (500) but am gonna try the 400 and 600 as well and see how the grip and handling come up prior to Feb`s Nitro GP.
Cheers

The front diff uses the same size pulley as the one way.....you dont however glue the side to the pulley on the diff (as is required for the one way) or else the diff wont have enough clearance to fit.
VZ203 is the part number for the Pulley Set...... its probably easier to get a new pulley than to try and force the side off the one way pulley.

Just as a bit of a guide....Surikarn used 600wt in his MTX3 at the 2003 Winternats at EC.....different spring weights (purple) though to the RRR.....theres a few setups from the Mugen guys at www.onlinehobbies.com.au for the local tracks.

Hi guys, need some advice here. I just got my WCE RRR from a local racer. Have been running the NTC3 for 2-3 years, I've to admit it was quite a leap for me to own this baby, it's soooo much complicated than the NTC3, looking forward to a pleasant experience with the RRR.

However, I find it a bltch to wrench with the philips head screws. I was wondering, was it me or was it because of the screws? I was using a Mugen philips screwdriver, but those screws are making me go nuts...and I'm thinking, should I get a screwdriver of "ultimatest quality" - HUDY, or I'm thinking of changing all the screws into hex screws/allen (possible to do so?)? Need advice! Thanks heaps!
