B4, I think I am running the #11 or the longer one and I was running a front spool (diff case). I just shaved my front diff down enough to clear. I'm not positive if it is the #11 or where I shaved material, and since I am in FL for work and my car is back in OH, I'll check when I get home.

rmd, I was looking at the list of parts (nice list) and the upgraded Kyosho brake pads and rotor are a confirmed upgrade if you ask me! I have ran them and I do like them a lot. Expensive, but I think well worth it. No brake fade, much stronger brakeing, and from what I'm told, last a very long time.

Thanks. Appreciate the validation. I've never tried them, so I was hoping that someone did. I will update the list.

Just kidding! Just kidding!

Just for you bro, I pulled the car out of the box, took off the wheels and put it on the Hudy setup board - and you know what? My chassis is straight except the back end after the rear wheels where the back of the chassis is about 0.5mm off the board. Big deal. You guys should see some of the track acrobatics I've done with the car. I'm surprised it doesn't look like ... a banana!

I wouldn't worry about it. We're all going to get Shimo replacement chassis anyway. Right?
Thank you! I missed your post. It was a hair, literally, from the board. It's just one more thing for me to obsess about when building a new kit. To be honest, it will probably bend within the first few outings. Reason? I'll be OK for maybe two weekends and bam! wreck. New to racing but not RC.

Your KB for the V-One-RRR is great. Last night I E-mailed Champ. Just trying to get all the parts I think I need before I order. Shipping is probably expensive try to make it worthwhile.

Glad that I could help. When you blow $425+ on something, it's hard to accept anything less then perfect - iPod with a scratch, XBOX 360 with a slightly open case that won't close, you know what I mean.

Make sure you take plenty of pictures after it's built. It won't stay all pristine for long.

I was going through the entire forum again today and stumbled across this gem for the standard RRR:

i heard from someone that if the balance is within 5 grams left to right then thats ok for a 1/10th. For 1/5th you have to be more accurate because of the size

Anybody using body post plates on their car? Just trying to get an idea of how common the usage is, other brands, etc.

Thanks

I will second that. I have only used them once so far but they are truely an upgrade. I am going to experiment with a spring/tubing to get the feel I want.

The last time I checked mine it was around 1760 (ready to go, no gas) but I have changed a few things so I'm not sure anymore. I need to get a good scale. Any recommendations?
