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
I had the exact same problem though mine was fishtailing quite heavily. Softer springs (silver) and 40 weight oil sorted it out. Next I'll sort out the front ..which tends to drift out on power ...off power stearing is good though. Quick question is this regard (the front): would you guys experiment with softer springs first ...or Caster changes? I intend trying both but was just wondering ...

what parts are you looking for? Everything that comes with the RRR out of the box is good quality and there isn't a whole lot of 3rd party options that make performance differences. What specifically do you want to try? Kawahara makes some parts. Skyline also has some things.

2 Questions...

1 - Im unable to setup my 1 degree toe out on the front because I cannot get the servo (Futaba S9451) to centre correctly (I have put the servo horn on as much as I can in the middle and adjusted the steering trim slightly on the controller so when I say it wont centre I mean there is a bit of play, not that it wont centre on the controller). If I turn the radio (3PKS) to the left and let go, the toe on the left will be 1 degree out and the right will be 0. If I turn the radio to the right and let go, the right will be 1 degree out and the left 0. When I move the front tyres left and right slightly with my hands (while the radio is on) there is a small play in it. Any idea?!

2 - What is the difference between
- Universal Shaft Set KY-VZW219
- Universal Swing Shaft (For Front Oneway) KY-VSW015
- Universal Swing Shaft (Short) KY-VSW007

Default New 2d clutch and front solid

Hello,
I would like to share my weekend experience for the 2d clutch and the front solid.
I installed the 2d clutch with the default settings on my Sirio EVO3 and it worked perfectly. There is a difference with the 3D clutch in the engagement. The 2d does not need throtle blips to keep it preloaded. It always engages like a gun and provides a more linear feeling in the acceleration.
I also tested the front solid VZW220. I liked it alot. I find it more secure on the brakes. Although I drove like with one way, meaning that I did not use too much brakes, whenever I needed them, the car just stayed on the line without loosing the tail.
I started with the setup I found in the Kyosho Japanese site for the EVO, the one, which is dated 13/11/2006 for the BOSS track.
I needed to modify the
front:
roll center and put the front upper arm to the highest position, lay down the front shocks, use the 4518 springs and set flat the front anti roll bar
rear: change to 30000 diff, use the 5 shock position, use the 4517 springs, put 2mm spacer on the knuckle arm
I used the 64/63 tire split but I am thinking to use 64/62 the next time, because after the 20 min of the final the car felt a little twitchy because the rears became equal to the fronts.
Anyway, it was a nice weekend for me, because I had the chance to change and test many things and at the end I finished 3rd in the A final for the national champ.

Where did you purchase your 2d clutch.

The VZW219 is for the front. it was released with evo and seems to be more reinforced than the others
VSW007 is for sponge tires wider rear tyre. it comes with a spacer for offset seting

With VSW007 you can run 0 degree offset rear wheels RRR kits are setup for 2 degree offset rear wheels.

My kit silicone oils are almost in the end and soon I will have to buy more.. I need some advice to choose as I heard there are different brands and different quality. For start, its easier to me get Kyosho, Mugen and Serpent stuff..
another doubt is related to thrust bearing lube.. what lube should I use? Grease or oil? And what brand?
and how about the one-way
thanks

When I got my kit I didn't use silicone from my kit I brought it seperate bottle because I needed 10,000 wt(mugen) for the rear the kit comes with 30,000 wt that was too heavy doesn't matter what brand to me I use it all good Mugen_Kyosho_Associated_serpent unless your sponsor most of the time it is just preference.

Exclamation DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE V1RRR WCE & V1RRR EVO WCE

Planning to get into nitro touring & choosing between the two versions.

I've been reading up on the two kits on the Kyosho USA website the differences but would rather read/hear it from the experts who've built & raced the kits on the track.

As far as I know, the V1 RRR Evo WCE has around close to $400 options parts included (based off the Kyosho website) but not clear if they (Kyosho) made any major changes from the V1 RRR WCE and V1 RRR Evo kit.

Any advice or comments will be most appreciated before I make the purchase.
