Try this http://www.ziggy12345.plus.com/Cars/V-1-RR%20MPH.xls

Its for the RR but will calculate anything as long as you put in the right tooth numbers

I don't know which rim they are but it's the 6 dual spoke type. They are 50% more than the GRP varities but lasts twice as long.

I don't cover mine and it's fine thus far (knock on wood).

Just so i have this correct some of the middle shafts carry over to the rrr but not all? the vzw-025 does not fit? How about gearmain shafts? have they released any lightweight versions? And how about the first gear 1way holder...is there a lighter version of this too?

I ill check all those parts out. the midle shaft doesnt have a ton of stress on it so i think i will try the 3racing. torsional stress but no slamming into the boards stress like a cvd.

Thanks for the help.
I wouldn't go with the 3Racing shaft. Since the 2 pin holes are so close together, it snapped on me. I'd stick to the stock one until the hollow shafts come out. I have the Kyosho hollow shaft in my Evo...very light, very strong.

Default Front toe.

Maybe I've missed something, but I can't seem to adjust the front toe, whilst the RRR is mounted on the Hudy setup prisms.
I see there is a little hole in both steering rods, but the upper arms prevent access to it
Is there an easy way of doing this?

Cheers, Mark.

I don't know how this is blocked but on the Mugen, they way I see it's done is to use an L type allen into the holes in the steering rods to turn them. Perhaps then it's reacheable.

Thanks, I discovered this eventually - not a very easy method, though.

Nice job Mark ! Not forgetting the number of lies and days the GF has been deprived !

I see you're hiding and stuffing old engines and pipe on the RRR ! That's not acceptable ! Nice photo work.

Ummm looking at the car, I guess you'll break a rear shock tower after all. Perhaps when that time comes, try to pass the broken RRR shock tower as a 710 one with Serpent for replacement.
