i am also using 3racing disk brake with original brake pads. i notice defficiency in braking after a couple of tanks of fuel also. i dont know if the break still needs to be broken in, this may be the problem.

Just in case you all are wondering what the new spring rates are (for RRR Evo), here they are. The first number is grams and the next number is lbs.

Front: Light Blue: 468 / 26.15
Blue: 584 / 32.62
Dark Blue: 719 / 40.17

Rear: Light Blue: 468 / 26.15
Blue: 525 / 29.33
Dark Blue: 588 / 32.85

So basically with the new kit, they went approx 5lbs stiffer in the rear and approx 2lbs softer in the front (based on kit setups). Interesting.

Hi, unfortunately I do not use hopup brake disc. I haven't had any problem with brake fade using stock setup during longer mains.

John, I can't say they are equivalent. Even with the same 60wt oil, Losi and AE are different. I personally use AE oil and been using 60 and 50wt.

Also another thing to keep in mind. New rates also being used with smaller diameter yet longer shock bodies.

I am looking for some advice here..After reading a bit i thought i should make my first post...

I am running a front spool on my v-one-rrr and am wondering what the effects lighter or heavier diff oil in the rear will have on the way the cars feels entering in and out of the turns. I am running 45w shock oil front and rear with stock black and gold springs. I am running 0 degree camber and toe in the front with about -2degree toe in the rear with 0 degree camber. I like to brake right before i enter the turn so i cut it very tight then power out of the turn.. Any tips on how i could better the car set-up would be appreciated.. Thanks

The heavier the rear diff lube, the more the rear end will drift out and add front steering. You may want to go to the Kyosho site and print off the setups that have been supplied. The setup from me is for a low traction track, even though I ran the oneway, the setup would still be similar. What type traction do have at the track your running?
Hope this helps, Mike
