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
Yup, that is precisely why these pads worked awesome. They were made to stop a .21 powered buggy. Also the pads are made by APP. You know how the brake pads on your real car is kind of a composite metal compound? This is exactly like that instead of your normal plastic/rubber-ish pads our there.

There was so much breaking power, almost too much that we put a couple slots in them so to create lesser braking service!

That's good to hear that these new brake pads are performing very well Will get one after the stock brake pads that came with the evo kit wear out. As of now, they are doing a great job at stopping my kit where I want it to It's quite a big improvement compared to the brake pads that came with the RRR WCE

Don't know if you notice, the EVO brake cam is redsigned(compare to the original RRR), so the brake lever is now in a better angle to give more leverage for more braking power.

Default Wheel offset

Hey all, happy new year.

i am owning a stock RRR, the rear rims should be 0mm or 2mm offset? i am currently running with 0d offset.

reading the setup sheet i noticed that it must be correct to use 0mm rims if you use the 2mm spacer, if i want to use 2mm offset rims i can just remove the spacers or i need to purchase different wheel shafts?

If you use 2mm offset rear wheels, then the stock axles will be fine. If you use 0mm offset rear wheels, you'll need VSW007, which the axle is longer and comes with a 2mm spacer that goes between the outer hub bearing and the wheel hex.

You can also order it through your local Kyosho dealer. Price should be pretty much standardized.

in my kit RRR not WCE the 2mm spacer was default so the rims had 0offset, my question was if i want to use rims with 2mm offset i can just remove the spacer or i need to buy different axles?

also does anyone has an idea if it is better to use 0mm offset or 2mm offset rims?

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?
it could be your droop or one of your shocks has lost some oil.

Well I finally got to do my first race with the Kyosho RRR. This car is awesome. Strait out of the box with the addition of the solid front axel the car handled great. Lotís of steering, very stable and extremely strong. I took a couple of hard hits in the chicane and the car kept running like nothing had happened. Next week I will be getting a new Sirio engine so I should have plenty of power to go with the car. One thing I did notice was the brakes seamed to fade about halfway thought the main. This is the WCE version (not the EVO) and I am using the stock brake pads. I was thinking of getting the APP pads or the K-Factory brake pads, which should help this situation unless anyone has some other suggestion.
