Are they exactly the same thing? If cheaper is better for you, I guess.

Default tweak question...

hello
i would like to ask a question im pretty sure its related to tweak..

why is it that im able to do burnouts turning right but when i try doing burnouts to the left the car just goes straight with the wheels turned left?

on the hudy setup gauge the wheels are both set to +0.5 toe out in the front and the steering throw is exactly the same. the car also drives straight

is related to tweak?

I have found these parts in RRR WCE Evo and Rubber manuals
VSW006
VSW007
VSW015
VZW219

which one should I buy?

Thanks

Hmm...these new brake pads looks very strong as compared to the stock brake pads that came with the kit. I guess this would be a great brake pad upgrade for the v1rrr and v1rrr evo kit since it is also designed for the MP777. Now with that in mind, having to stop a .21 powered buggy with those pads would be a breeze if these pads where placed in a .12 powered on-road kit... Just my 2 cents

Cheers.
As far as a substitiute for 1 way oil, you can use mineral oil found in and drug store or market. When you do apply ANY type of one way oil, only use 1 drop on the shaft and then put the clean bearing on and rotate to dispence evenly. I can't stress enough about the 1 drop! Good luck!

Don't have the spring rates of the RRR springs. What I know is that the silver springs are the softest. Black springs are midway. Gold springs are the hardest Hope this helps

VZW219 is 2mm longer so there is more "meat" in your outdrives.

Hope this helps.
