Thank you for your answers.

you have all the parts in your kit, exept for the correct middle belt. swap the 23t up front of the middle belt for the 24t that came in the kit, and get the optional side belt for use with the 24t pully, part number is listed in your manual.

i have never raced with rubber tires on my rrr but i have done practice with them just using the car drivetrain setup for foam tires without a problem - all the 24t pulley and belt do is bring the car close back to 50/50 drive.

Any suggestion will be appreciated!

Yeah I started to have a lot of problems.

I use Tamiya TRF shock diaphrams now though.

They are a little larger in diameter, so they don't seem to fall into the shock and cause it to leak.

The smaller diameter 1/8th shocks seem to build better also, but the cap is still the same.

kewdawg:
I found out why my 2 speed changer was rubbing (getting stuck) on the spur gear. The set screw was pushing the collar too far out so the 2 pads werent close enough together. If I screwed out the set screws the spur gear wouldnt even go on (keeping them just under the surface)

I had a look at a RR and FW-05R and noticed they dont have a set screw at all in the 2 speed changer, so I took them out and now the gear turns freely!! I doubt this will make a huge difference??

Also, Im concerened about the front one way pully. I used Arolldite to glue it but wouldnt this come apart from racing wear and tear? I had an issue with an aluminium pully on my V One S, the side came off after 1 day of racing as the belt was rubbing against it one one side. Has anyone had trouble with it?

Soften the shock oil and / or the springs and soften the diff oil. It looks ,ike your tyres are skipping under power and spinning on the tarmac so wearing them quickly

Cheers

i dont think the tires are spinning just wearing fast compared to the front tires that dont have to do any braking. right now im running the kit shock oil(50wt i believe), and 10k rear oil. i dont want to go up on the rear shore to0 much, as the track is not ultra high bite, and very tight, and i dont have any other kyosho springs. right now i have 37's all around.

if i remember right, i took this av. from someone on another forum that i dont frequent, if someone else on here has this pic, its purley coinsidence!
