My packaging definately indicates it it the 24tooth 387 ..... but like i said the only way I could make it work would be to mount a second tensioner roller. Must be a mispackage.
Count the teeth!!



Often the number of teeth are stamped on the belt as well.

389 ? doesn't sound right

384 has 128 teeth
387 has 129 teeth
389 would make 129.666666666666r
Unless Kyosho have changed the way they number belts, the number listed is 3x actual teeth.

Because king pin angle choice is possible according to the course condition and course layout, width of setting spreads largely. * For V-One RRR.

How do you read it?

I read it as: More tuning options for different tracks and conditions. Do they just have some caster built in like the old front hubs from the FW-05R?

i beleive the closer the king pin angles are to the arm the more responsive the car will be but it will also affect your caster settings a bit since you will also have more tire sweep. if these blocks just move the pivot point in and out. im triing to figure out if these 1 deg and 2 deg stand for trailing or offset.

The offset varies the length of the upper arm.

We had the same trouble with the Evo's HC bladders (the hard ones) and found that one of them had split. Dunno why but it might have been because I was tightening them up too much in an effort to stop the leaks.

Out of frustration we then reverted to the older/softer RR bladders but concluded they weren't as responsive. Bought a new set of the HC bladders and assembled as per rjl's instructions - pretty much the same way as jwf_frani does it. No problem thereafter but I do think it helps to have minimal built in rebound as the hard bladders tend to dimple and "take a set' thereafter. Hope this helps.

No english version available that I know of. Just download the windows Japanese language module and you can open them without problem. On the Mac you should be able to open them right up.
