i know about 3racing.In some times 3 to get racing is a lot!!i had many parts on my R.That's why ,this time i didn't use 3 racing in crucial points like front swing shaft.This time I used 3 racing in points where it cannot easily brake sth.The only point i use 3racing right now and i'm afraid of is the rear main shaft.I hope that titanium from 3 racing will last a little more than "hard alluminum".Luckily ,so far the main rear shaft exists in one piece!!!

No offense dude,, you have a beautifull car and it looks sweeeeeeet.. Honestly speaking, I wouldn't count very much on 3Racing. In my opinion,, it's one of the cheapest quality brands of hop-ups out there in the market. It will defenitely make your car look good and feel stronger to be kept on a shelf,, but on a race track,, Forget about it!!

I'm not saying this because I own a Mugen,, but in fact I'm saying this based on experience. I've used 3Racing products on my Mugen that didn't last a day(that includes not crashing the car). Their parts are just not durable enough. Call yourself lucky if the parts held for 3 times of racing.. (get the joke??)

Overall,, congratulations on a having a nice car. I will soon join the Kyosho owners club just like you,, but defenitely not with the 3Racing parts..

Who are using SP Main Chassis 3T/7075 VZW214? It's a good upgrade? How about the rigidty and performance? It seems to be the same material of RR-Evo..

Default Kyosho RRR

I was using Fast Tires when they were still avaliable, then tried GQ tires.
I first bought about 10 sets, and could not understand what the problem was until I checked them all with my guage, and found out that the 40 shores were actually around 48 shore, and the 45 shore were around 50 to 52 shore.
They were way off on the shores.
The same problem with the 1/8 scale tires that I bought. The shores were not even close to what they were supposed to be.
I wound up giving all the CG tires away to a friend, because they were of no use to me.
I then changed over to Jaco tires, and have not had a problem.
I would like to try the new Novarossi tires just to see the consistancy.

The Novarossi tires are similar to the Kawahara/Zac racing tires

Sweet thanks for the heads up.. ill grab a couple o sets of each brand and see what works 4 me.. To get started im gunna base my shore on what locals @ the track are using and experiment from there, thinking this should get me in the ballpark nicely
