Kudos to rmdhawaii in taking the effort to compile all the info, an FAQ maybe?
Thanks. I've been thinking about creating a V1RRR Resource Web Site - Knowledge base, setup, links, optional parts, reviews / tests, FAQ, etc. It would make like easier for everyone - and you wouldn't have to sift through all these pages trying to find the information you are looking for, but it sure would take a lot of work. Plus I only own the WCE! Hmmmm...

You guys willing to help with the info? I would be willing to setup the site and maintain it.

I'm running the Serpent RCC shocks on my RRR... They don't leak and they're super smooth too... If you have the old Serpent shocks, stay with the Kyosho.. but if you just so happen to have the RCC shocks laying around... used them... Depending on track conditions.... I'm using the Serpent red springs in the Rear... Sanded all the red paint off though and Kyosho black springs in the front... Oh and I think someone asked about the K-Factory UFO clutch... I have one as well... It's a toss up between the stock clutch and UFO... Both work great... You can use the kyosho clutch gears on the K-Factory clutch bell or use the K-Factory ones... There gears are more durable

Just a little info on leaking kyosho shocks.....if they do leak chances are you have tightened them down to far and damaged the bladders...I have corrected that problem with my shocks...I used to crank them down......but you dont have too once they are snug they will not leak...

I had that same shock problem on my kyosho offroad car I sanded the top of the shock body with fine sandpaper and then I could tighten them up without damaging the bladders.

I have been reading all this offset stuff and I remember when the mtx3 came out I got one and we had this same problem.

I've been using the RCC shocks since day one... Never had a problem with them... I should have said a few of the other guys running the RRR were having the leaking shock problem with there kyosho shocks... Nothing to hard that they couldn't fix... For the cost of the RCC shocks though... They better not leak... ever...

Is there a successor in sight for the RRR? I'm really tossed up between these two cars (MTX4), but I always tend to come on the later span of a car's lifespan. The CE is cheaper than the 4 by $25-50. I cannot get parts locally for either car.
