I still don't know what this spacer is though. The knuckle arms seem to be the steering blocks, and there seem to be three different kinds of these 0, 1 and 2 degrees - but what about this spacer? Where should the spacer go? Do they really mean the wheel spacer - which is how it is named for the rear of the car?

Cheers, Mark.

Give you a wider range for the caster setting.

I think that's the caster clip.

Hi Markp27,

I will be getting my kit tomorrow (my first build) and have gone over the online manual many times and made my notes before hand to make sure I understand everything. These caster clips you speak about, what page of the manual is it on?

Also, on the very first page, it mentions "After inserting both (163) to (16) and (17), apply instant glue"

I assume they mean to CA glue the O'rings on each side of the diff housing, is this correct???

I ask, because I did not see the actual symbol for CA glue specifically illustrated here.

Any repsonse would be greatly appreciated.

It is a wise decision to understand everything fully before assembling a car for the first time. Also remember to take your time with the build process, as the better you build the car the less problems you will have later and the better your car will perform.

If you have a look on page 5 of the manual "Arrangement of plastic parts on runners", the item in the top left-hand corner has the caster clips attached to it. The two clips are shown as piece number 27. You attach the caster clips in step 6 of the assembly procedure.

With the original RRR, which I built just over a year ago, I found that there weren't enough caster clips supplied with the kit to remove all the play from the front upper suspension arm, so you may have to get some from another kit - I got mine from my Xray or Serpent 710, as you can buy the caster clips on their own with those two kits.
Maybe the RRR WC doesn't need extra clips though.

I wouldn't do that to be honest. I've no idea why the instructions are telling you to apply CA glue there - I would only ever use a silicon sealent on those parts (i.e. the edge of part 16). You really don't want to be gluing the Diff with CA as you will never get it apart again - the diff oil plays a very important role in the car setup and therefore you will need to change it to suit different track conditions.

Hope that helps.


Cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark,

Yes, a great help. I just realized how stupid the question was though. Off course I know the caster clips. I think I am just very anxious and excited about getting it tomorrow.

As regards the diff, I do not think they are reffering to sealing the diff closed, but glue to hold the outer seals in place.

Should I use a lighter glue or nothing at all?

Thanks for the help so far.

I wouldn't use anything there to be honest, as long as the rubber seal stays in place ok. I'm sure I didn't glue it on my RRR.
I haven't started building my RRR WC yet, as I've come down with a really bad cold

sorry, couldn't help it. when I saw his post, I remembered how he can't see anyway so why would it matter. He borrowed my telescope and lost it. Then he borrowed by microscope and broke it ... of course, even if you give my Bro a 1 foot thick disc he won't be able to see it.
