I have a question for you all, I am trying to find the part number for the front universals that is used with the front Diff/spool. I think they are a little longer than the stock ones that are used with the one-way that came with the WC kit. I don't have the old stock ones to check the length and I need to replace my front universals. Any help would be helpful.

I mean without the use of setup stations.
To measure rear toe angle without a setup station, stand the car on its rear and use a camber gauge upright against the rear wheels to measure the toe angle.

Default K-Factory V1RRR Special 3mm Alum. 7075 Chassis (w/carbon stiffener)

I was at the hobby store today and the guy behind the counter pulled out the chassis. It sure looks sweet, but would I just be wasting my money? It's only $125.00 (*cough*) (*cough*) (*gasp*) (*choke*)

Do you have any K Factory parts? Anything good or bad to say about the parts or the company?

I'm starting to salivate...

KFactory makes good stuff. I used some of their hop ups on my FW05R and performed well. While I do not have any on my RRR now I would not hestitate to put them on my car.

Which US shop has a good selection of hopups? I know Lee has some, but that's about it.

I'm not sure I would recommend these K-Factory parts - this isn't any criticism about the quality of the K-Factory parts, in fact they are of exceptional quality.
The problem is the rear out-drives of the RRR are too soft for the hardend pins of these universals.
I ran one tank with these universals and now I need to replace what was a brand new set of out-drives

I would stick with the kyosho parts to be honest, as they are better matched in terms of hardness to the out-drives.


Cheers, Mark.

I agree with mark in some sense.....But I have used some k-factory parts including the chassis......they are very good.......the rear back plate I am still using and it is strong very strong.....chassis is thin has some flex you need to decide if thats what you want but it performs well......the brake pads and disc are awesome ran them at wnats never had brake fad for the whole 45 min main plus warmup....and they great braking power....hope this helps.......

hey guys, how to make the boxes in our carry bag stronger as we know that the carton boxes are pretty soft. Currently i'm using those cloth masking tape rap it to make it stronger.
Or is there a better way to do it ? ( Spend quite a bit on this carry bag, so hope can last longer )


cheers,

I don't quite follow you here. I have my car setup stock (1mm clip in front, 1mm clip in back). 1 + 1 = 2. How are you fitting 3mm in there... trimming the arms? I have some play there but not 1mm worth. I was thinking about taking a 2mm clip and sanding them down to fit.
