well I finally ran my rrr wce saturday and I must say this is a awesome car. I havent raced nitro touring for years and this car made me look like a expert. Im very happy the way this car drives. Only a couple small setup issues. The rear seems to be a little loose in some corners exiting, another small issue seems to be in 2 turns exiting the corner the front wants to push a little. Right now the car is box stock. Setup to the wce setup sheet, Also the tires are the ones Im using from the kit and they havent been trued. Should I go to a like 70 or 80 weight oil in the front, and drop to 50 in the rear? Or should I leave it alone. Would appreciate any advise. Thanks. Also I noticed since the tires arent trued that the rear tires since running 5 tanks are smaller than the front tires now, is this normal? Meaning the diameter

Don't know what type of grip you have at your local track where I race it is a high bite track I use 80wt in front and 60wt in rear & 10,000 in my rear diff. tires I run 45 front & 42 rear and I cut tires down to 61mm to start.

So this has been out for awhile, the guy I spoke to also put me on hold because he was going to ask another person, and came back with "we are not aware of that problem, and as of now there is no updated part"' just to keep looking on the website for a recall in the future..
I just went ahead and grinded it down like the pic you posted just to give it enough clearance..
Hey HAWAII can you explain the roll center and how a,b work, where can I get a base rrr wc set up sheet..

This is the best article I've ever found on roll centers:
http://web.archive.org/web/200509072...l.asp?pid=9986

Here is also some great info from afm on rear roll center:
http://www.nitrokb.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=15

And this info was provided by Francis M on the a & b:

A: set on the lowest position in the rear will lower your roll center.
B: set on the lowest position in the rear is the next step up
B: on the reversed position would be next higher
A: on the high position for the rear would be the highest setting.
