guys im suffering witha small problem with my rrrs setup
the rear outside tire seams to be wearing heaps more than the left inside tyre. i am using the black sway bar now and the rollcentre has been lowered and also the blue collars removed.

how can i get a closer even wearing tyres ?

That should always be the case and it is normal, that is why we have camber adjustment. Adjust for a more negative camber til your tires are coning slightly on the inside, that should take care of your tire wear woes.

thanks tommi
i think its also because i was having too much weight going into the back
the car was understeering a bit too much and i think the clutch wa stoo tight, i was getting too much revs. the track isnt the highest traction

I know this isn't supposed to be in this thread but there is no v-one RR evo threads.... I want to get rid of the floating rear, is there any shock stay/towers that can replace it? Maybe possibly from any other rr/rrr's.

I don't know if there is a track in Jacksonville but there is a very nice track in Kissimmee. That is about about 2 hours south of Jville.

Welcome (in advance) to the state.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather. Hope you get better soon. Yeah, I'm going full steam into the indoor season. Everyone else in the region is doing the same. trying to get my electric touring cars dialed in - pretty tough competition up here . One of my teammates hooked me up with the avatar. He started B2Designs with his sister. They're painting bodies, printing vinyl decals and more.

Is everyone using the same setting for the rear shock as guided in the manual?



Like to know what other setting are you guys offering?

I run the front short silver springs on my rear shocks, I love the more aggressive and progressive feel of stiffer springs in the rear end. Hence I'm using the next longer ball end cup, screwed all the way in. Just something to try out if you're ineterested... No fix settings for the distance between the shock collar and shock cap, as it is a running-change, compensating the wearing tire diameter.

You can use the rear shock tower off the original Vone R , or the tower off a V one S.

K Factory used to make a carbon rear tower for them as well...
