Myself and another racer are running the CRF at our track. Unfortunately, we're running different plugs (Hot/me=Medium), fuel (20%/me=30%), pipes(??/me=CRF&Sirio) and cars (RR Evo/me=RRR), so we can't really compare notes. We both agree that the engine is very sensitive to environmental changes. You have to be ready to change your settings at a moment's notice, depending on how it runs for the first minute on the starter box. If you set it wrong, you're screwed for the upcoming heat. Our experience has been, that it's definitely not your typical "set and forget" type engine. The engine is pretty fast alright, but not faster than the JPs running at our track. I can keep up with them, but I can't pass them.

I'm also running a TZ in the 2nd car, but I need to work on it a bit. Had some problems running it at the last race after replacing the front bearing and all the seals and gaskets. I'm going to be doing more troubleshooting this weekend. Might just be a hose issue.

Hopefully that K part will work out for you. Haven't seen you on the board lately.... busy racing?

Man, life is changing quickly... I just traded in my Audi TT for a Jeep Grand Cherokee! Well, easier to haul r/c stuff anyway! All my plan to go to Nats and big races next year will have to take a backseat. Due date should be around April. But either way, my kid will be hell of a r/c driver! Planning on winning the 2022 Worlds!

Dom
Glad to hear about the baby... sorry to hear about the car.

I have heard, from an unreliable source, that the Kawahara parts are available. Can you confirm?

I did notice that one of my blades is bent. It's not bad, but it is bent. I was able to adjust the vertical link to even it out so I think it will work fine... until I have to rotate them.

I'll check and let you know next week. If they've got extra or I have to special order anyway, I'll pick up a set of blades for you.

Default v1rrr evo

finally got a chance to bring the kit to our local racetrack. tool some pictures before i ran the kit. hopefully it will perform well used a kyosh calsonic skyline display body i had lying around my room. for the wheels, i used hotwheels display rims. for the tires, i used the proline v-rage. these are only for display purposes. will be using a proline dodge stratus 3.1 body and have yet to decide on which tires to used

Default Have a couple of questions !!

The rear shocks don't seem long enough to allow the rear suspension arms to rest on the droop screws. The arms are not even with the chassis yet. HAs anyone else had this problem ?

Where do you measure your droop setting from on this car ?

The adjustable rear swaybar hits the rear blocks when you lift the car up and doesn't allow the full suspension movement, any help here ?


Thanks

U talking about the RRR NON Evo ?

If so, then put different shock ball cups on, sounds like u need longer ones.

As for the anti roll bar, it will foul the camber links as standard.

You need to bend the roll bar each side so it clears.
