You got to call them each month they change there specials a while back they were giving a free $80 tempgun with a purchase of the mrx4r
i will try to keep you guys posted as of now they have 20% off on all kyosho parts but check like I said it a monthly thing & I don't want the moderators warning me on plugs so I try to minimize a lot of stuff since i speak with the owner of brooklyn hobbies on a weekly basis.

Do you mean that they wear like this? (Outward coning) If you want them to wear flat, try increasing your camber to 3 or 3.5. Most people recommend a slight inward coning. What shore tires are you using in the rear?

I'm not a big fan of the way the stock sway bar is mounted. I find that in order to keep the rear suspension free you cannot tighten the (2) screws that hold the sway bar down and with those slightly loose it allows the bar to slide (side to side) a little. It's probably not a big deal but I would like to give the Kawahara a try. Besides, Chris Tosolini uses one and they look really cool.
You're not alone, I found out the same thing as the stock sway bar as well, it's not a big deal maybe, but it certainly matters to me... Hey, fill us in on how the Kawahara performs when u get to try it later!

End-to-end: More info about the car, tips, difference between RRR and WCE, etc.
FAQ: Questions frequently asked at rctech.net
Setup Sheets: Generic / location specific
Hop-ups: Plus a rating for things we’ve tested
Links: Links to other sites
Reviews: Test results/opinions of parts we’ve tried on our cars
Team V1RRR: Our profiles as we appear on rctech.net + whatever info you want to include – gear, car picture, etc.

I'm pretty flexible, but it has to be specific to the V-ONE RRR / WCE.

"End-to-end" is pretty vague, but I'm using link tips (those yellow hyperlink popups that describe the link), so that might help. I think it's better than "bumper-to-bumper". If you've got a better idea, I'm all ears.

"Finish Line" might be good a section to highlight V-ONE RRR wins (1-3 place) in either national or club races - but I don't want the section to get out of hand. Maybe it could be broken down by week or put in the News and Updates section.

Thanks!
Hey rmd, great effort, looks great from "far"... Nevertheless, kudos to u on your effort! Let me know if you need an extra hand on it.

Ok...first thing you should know is that there are 2 types of ride height involved in setting up your car. The setup-ride-height, and the real ride height. The "setup ride height" is the measured ride height when the car is on the Hudy setup system, while the real ride height is the actual ride height of your car with mounted tires. Tire diameter affects the ride height, which in turn affects the camber. Hence, the camber reading you get on the Hudy WILL NOT be the same when you bolt on the tires you want to run your car with.

Not many may know this, the Hudy setup system has a 66mm simulated tire diameter, but most of the time we will not be using 66mm tires. Quite a complicated calculation is involved IF you want to get the real camber corresponding to the tire diameter thru the setup camber. This might be a lil bit tough, but I think this is useful for the benefits of others as well.

Let's say we want to have a real ride height of 6mm on 60mm tires:
Calculated setup-ride-height:
66(the simulated tire diameter on Hudy) - 60(the tires we want to use) = 6mm

The 6mm difference we get is inclusive of the difference above and below the axle, so we need only half of it. 6mm/2 = 3mm

Hence the setup-ride-height = 6 + 3 = 9mm; this simply means, setting up a ride height of 9mm on the Hudy will give you a ride height of 6mm when you're on your 60mm tires.

Like I posted before, the camber setting is a running change for me, I change it using a camber gauge after every 2 tanks or so due to the ever changing tire diameter. Setting the camber on the Hudy setup system is merely a way of getting a reference point in the setup procedure for me. If the above ways are too tedious to use, a camber gauge will make things much more easier.

I would be more than happy to give a full write-up on it if you can help me find one. I have emailed Kawahara, PrecisionRC and Champ International and have not heard anything yet. Do you have any other suggestions on where to find one? Who is the US importer for Kawahara... Mugen USA?
