Do you know any hopups/upgrades i can buy to lower the heavieness and to improve the steering? Money isn't an issue....

Thanks
Hi there.

Before splurging on light weight hop ups, you may just want to check that scale or use another one to double check. 3kg doesn't sound right.

3000g is just NOT right, it just couldn't be right that those guys drove a 3kg 4-wheeler to podium in Brazil? And trust me, the WCE RRR doesn't need any hop-ups to improve its steering, the WCE RRR is already hop-uped with the good stuffs out-of-box. Enjoy the car and buy a new scale!

Out of curiosity, what is that sensor in your car? Can it sense the weight? ...just kidding.

Something's wrong. If you built the car as per the directions it should weigh approx. 1750. I doubt you would be able to get it under 1600 without leaving off several parts.

As tommi said, the car does not need any steering hop-ups. You will probably need to take steering out from the stock setup.

Tommi, get the bearings from any bearing shops. Got mine for RM12/piece

Default K-Factory & Kawahara

This has probably been asked many times before but I can't find it.

Where is the US can I get K-Factory and Kawahara parts? Kawahara's website sends you to Mugen that's pretty funny. I don't seem to be able to find any Kyosho parts at Mugen USA.

Thanks,
jag
