Is there a file I can download or a site I can check out to see all the hop ups available for the RRR? I checked the Kyosho site but it has a very limited listing.

you probably have the parts available but need to work on your customer service, about a month and 1/2 ago you where posting on a local forum that you have parts for mugen too, i ask you if you can get for me some parts and how much would them be (kawahara accord bodies, they are distributed by mugen, remember?) "i'll check and will email you back with the info" you said, on 5 feb i email you again, today is 1 march and i'm still waiting for your response. what kind of customer service can you provide over the internet if you can't even deal with the locals? what a way to do bussiness.......

Nearly everyone at my track uses it and no one has broken one as far as I know.

skyline shock tower very good ..........it has never broken I have been using it since I started running the rrr

It works great with Sirio engines. The one you want is the VR12.

What are you guys doing to prevent your stinger from getting bent/smashed? My RD Logics tuned pipe is positioned in such a manner that that stinger sticks out of the body. Some guys at the track said that I should bring it in more, but it's not really possible given the exhaust manifold design. If I try to move the mounting rod, I'm just pivoting the tuned pipe at the spring connection joint, which is probably not a good idea (i.e. air leak). Any other ideas?

This is the tuned pipe I'm using:

Get the one with reinforced stinger, if not get the Vantage carbon fiber one or you can cut off the length just a bit of your stinger with a Dremel tool.

Use some Quiksteel to build up the area around the stinger...this should provide plenty of support/protection for it.
Cheers

I'm looking at a new chassis to replace my current on for the new season. Should I just go with the originall Kyosho RRR chassis? I've heard of people trying other brands and not liking the handling characteristics with them. Any input on the Skyline chassis?

Thanks,

Dave

Yeah... If, you plan on running a diff and you not handy with a dremel, then don't bother. I had to "butcher" the chassis below the diff so it could sit flush in the bulkhead. I didn't realise the diff wouldn't fit properly until I already had the chassis on the car. That blew squirrel nuts!
