Thanks B4.....I heard that they are a JAP rubber type. I guess that is different from the GRP rubber that I'm used to using.

I think they are ZAC Kawahara tyres.

Thumbs up

First day out yesterday with my RRR WC at revelation raceway grip was really good 45 fronts & 42 rears, the car handle great besides my driving skills need to improve I'm really impress with the car straight out the box with stock set up which I change a little bit. The cornering on this car is fantastic it really dips into the corner. Just wanted to share how much I really like my car with other RRR owners.

Here is the pic of Bertin's car.......thanks in advance!

I believe they are Kyosho tires. They come in a red box. The RRR worlds come with these kind of tires. They are not Kawahara tires. When I bought my regular RRR a year ago, it came with Arrow tires.

Actually I think the Kyosho tires are made by GRP.

It's a retainer for the outdrives. It should keep the outdrive from spreading and possibly keep the dogbone/CVD/universal from coming out in a crash.
