Just my opinion.

If, you haven't already, remove the spacer under the rear camber link and use the outer hole on the bulkhead mount. The car should be easy to drive but still very nimble.
hmm...havent really tried using sway bars. all the local racers in our track have advised not to use it except for one. i wonder why well, will try your suggestions also and see how it goes thanks

Just my opinion.

Come over to 3hobby.net, look in the news items below the Forums Center, there is an offer to buy one RRR WC kit and you get a full RRR Evo kit with it. Get together with a friend and get it if you don't want two cars.

It sounds to me the reason the locals dont use the bars..could be because the track is bumpy there using lots of droop and need a lazy car just an observation..

hmm... that could be one of the reasons since our tracks here is a little bumpy. i've tried using the swaybar and increased the front differential oil to 100k and dropped the rear differential oil to 10K. i still used 50wt on all shocks with using the blue springs up front and silver spring in the rear. seems that the car now is more tamed compared to before. the rear end is more planted with just a little more adjustment to make even more planted thanks for the helps guys. will post some updates. need to do more track time so as to fine tune the handling of the kit.

Hello All,

I have been searching trying to find a chart for gearing on the RRR that shows what gears go with what and the ratios that they make when combined.
Can anyone possibly point me to a chart or if possible PM or email it to me?
All or any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Brett
