The skyline chassis is good because you can take the clutch bell out without having to remove the motor first. handling-wise it's pretty much identical as the original chassis.

Actualy let me correct you-Skyline chasis are much better then original (not only because of clutch removing possabilities). We did bent test and it is flex as stock, but after apllying more force they holding better. I have made my choice already-Skyline chasis is the best as today.

hey Jeff.
I am OK, little bit tired after Winternats. We all got badly sick in last days there, but now is much better.
I will be at Pre-Nats both days.
Are you going to race?
See you there.
Edward

I haven't had any problems with the top screws, but I'm seriously contemplating putting either lock washers or blue thread lock on the bottom screws. Once I figured out how tight the bottom screws should be, things were fine - but we'll see how long that lasts. Oh and BTW, I replaced them with hex screws.

Definitely use threadlock on the bottom screws....preferably red.
I use a small amount of blue (semi-permanent) threadlock on the upper screws to stop them working loose as well.

No need to. Like anything else on the car, after installation do a couple of laps and than come back in and check the screws/nuts tighten if necessary and your right to go.

with the kysoho factory chassis I have not heard of this......
mounted one myself did not have that problemmm........ Please explain

If you are using the phillips style motor mount screws.......You might want to try some 2.0 x 8 they work great and you crank them down real tight.....thread lock never hurts there including before a big long race.....

Hey guys, my dad got a second hand RRR, and raced it today. The car is in good condition physically but, setup wise i'm having trouble, i set it up, like i would my reflex (V1R/V1RR) but it just doesn't seem very stable, so i was wondering if yous have any hints? there seems to be a lot of adjustability, maybee a little too much for me

E.g its just not very good on turn in on the throttle.

the stock setup works pretty good and maybe too much steering for some people so you could try the stock setup as your starting point and go from there.
