It should not sit ON the upper arm... Make sure you follow the instructions from the manual, the rod should measure 8mm in length on the exposed thread of the adjustable rod. I had mine adjusted to 7.6, if the rod is too long, the antiroll effect of the antiroll bar will be somehow hindered. It's best to make sure that the bar sits almost horizontally to permit free movement.

Default V-ONE RRR Ultimate Edition (UE)

As I'm going through the the Forum (currently on page 109) I'm starting to see what I would label as the V-ONE RRR Ultimate Edition (UE) - pretty much the most optimal configuration that anyone owning a V-ONE RRR could ever build. I know of course, that track/race day conditions may warrant a slightly different configuration, but for the most part, this would be the killer car that everyone else would try to beat - including other V-ONE RRR owners.

On top of the V-ONE RRR UE, I would think that it would be possible to put together the V-ONE RRR UE Race Package, which would include all the other items someone would need to have handy on race day based on track/race day conditions. i.e. one-way, front/rear gear diff with different weight oil, extra clutch bells with gears, springs, shocks with different weights, etc. etc.

Now that the MTX-4 is out (ProSpec on the way, I'm sure) and a new Serpent is just around the corner, it would be good if we could put our heads together to ensure that all the V-ONE RRR racers stay out front.

What do you think??

Are you talking more about upgrades, options or both?

U can check out the available dimensions from the SpeedMind's, I myself might gonna look for some later, but I don't have the time to go through the matching dimensions. If you're kind enough, let me know which of those matches the ones needed on the RRR.

Sounds good.. "Optimal configuration"...that should mean the hop-ups/upgrades/options that makes the car better, and not just for looks? I've got a list already...

Hey dood, try this? The last I read from someone's post in the MTX-4 thread, Mugen USA no longer handles Kawahara...

Then this should be easy.

Of course I mean the hop-ups/upgrades/options!!??

So are you already driving the UE around or do you have a few more things on the shopping list?

If I understand your question correctly, it's pretty much whatever provides the best performance, irrespective of where the part is from (i.e. Skyline rear shock stay and tuned pipe, Boca Bearings, throttle mixing arm from 3Racing, Kawahara blade sway bar, etc.)

I know I would like to know the answer to that question. I just purchased a second hand WC and would greatly appreciate some help. The track I am going to race at is pretty large (301 raceway check thread in racing forum) and I would love some help with a starting set-up and what kinda stuff could make the car handle better.

My plan is to get the OS TZ 5 port and it came with a used skyline pipe. Mileage is an issue for racers at the track as well as it has been said either bring HP or stay home.

What does the mixing arm do from 3racing. Also who carries parts and hop-ups for these things. I probably wont need many spares since alot were included but I would like to possibly get a new/upgrade chassis. I would also like to know about other possible motors that would be fast and fuel efficient.

There will be some pretty good competition at this track and I would like to make the V1RRR look good.
