Would aluminum pulley's solve this problem? I'm planning on getting the ones from 3Racing.

Default Plastic pulleys

I've had trouble with the 21 tooth pulley, the one that goes to the rear diff, after just 10 minutes racing the centre has been ripped out. With the new pulley design having a cross pattern there doesn't seem to be enough strength left in it.
I've bought the 3racing alloy gears, but its been raining so havn't been able to try them out.

Thumbs up

I guess living in CA has its perks, I got my RRR for only 354.99 from Ultimate Hobbies here in Orange.

Kemy, it might be my eyes decieving me but your rear belt looks a little loose. Mine was loose until I realised that that the right rear belt tensioner goes on the left side and the left rear tensioner goes on the right side stupid me not reading the instructions correctly!

Default Ride height

Where are you guys measuring the ride height from? With the chassis's beveled edge I feel I am not getting a true ride height measurement.

Also is anyone finding that with the lower engine mounts this thing has that the pipe and manifold is copping a hammering? Or am I just setting the chassis too low.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my tank is now leaking. I had thought earlier that I was one of the lucky ones to get a good tank, but after a gallon the tank leaks at the front-right area at the seam. I'm dissapointed, so far everyone I know with teh car has had to change the tank at least once.

Just back from the track after the first real race with the RRR. I managed to change the rear shock stay to the Kawahara 4mm one and didnt have any trouble with the stay. It was wet and so the speed was low but i did have at least one "off"

The car went well and didnt have any reliability problems like i did with the FW when I first had it.

I'm really impressed with the handeling, even in the wet. I cant wait for a dry day (neither could Noah though!) Anybody seen any doves carrying oil branches around here?

Cheers
