It will probably be open to the public by Monday. A lot of people are looking forward to it, so that's very encouraging.

I'm pretty sure droop isn't affected as the tires wear in a main/qualifier. If you think about it, the 'angle' of the lower suspension arm doesn't change as the tires wear out. As a result, the same droop is maintained throughout the main/qualifier.

The only time that you need to fix droop is if the lower suspension arm 'angle' changes. For example adjusting the shock collar for ride height purposes.

Sean does some great paint jobs Wen i was living in N.Y. he did all my bidies until he started with Tinity & got to busy I hear he is with Tekin now.
Give him a congrats for me. If you get a chance I highly recommend 301 raceway in maryland a bunch of really good rc boys/Sandra from maryland put the effort in bringing an awesome track there.

Droop setting changes besides angle changes are not the only reason you fix your droop settings.
Sometimes small increment changes to minimize onpower push in the front
Rear droop changes for certain tracks that may have a bump & you are seeing the rear bounce small droop changes with out changing springs & shock oil with also benefit the car reaction Etc

No no. I mean that droop will stay static throught a run.

Once set, droop should remain constant barring any major crashes. Just remember, a little droop change goes a long way.

Default Kyosho parts in stock

I have been told by some my customers the ZV210 (rear suspension arm) are extremely hard to find. I have them in stock along with a good inventory of RRR and Evolva parts.

hey tommi i also like to measure droop by the lifting method instead of the blocks, i did this all the time with my rdx. my only problem is i had a base setup on carpet ( front 1mm over ride height & rear 2mm over ride height) now for my rrr i don't know where to start? (parking lot track low traction) any help would be appreceiated

Most of the time, you would want to have more rear droop on low traction surface. I remember myself taking out the droop screw completely when I ran on a low traction parking lot track using the NTC3, with great results! On the RRR, 3mm is a good point to start I think. BUT it's pretty subjective to tell you what to do and what not to do, especially when droop is concerned. Too much droop at the rear will, in turn, make the rear traction feels inconsistent, the rear-end will laze around; again it really depends on how low the traction is.

If I'm to given a low traction surface condition, I would keep the droop setup that I'm comfortable with, and play around with other area that would give me better traction overall - tire shore (the most important factor where traction is concerned), suspension setup (spring rates, shock oil), antiroll bar, and then only to fine-tune things with the droop. That's what I do...
