if you drive smooth you will also notice your tyre wear won't be as bad either.
this means that in the final you can afford to true your tyres smaller and produce quicker laptimes.

We no longer need to discuss the simple build problems of this car. We can now devote all efforts to chassis setup and driving style.

You got that right... Even if it's the oldest car in the market, it still performs well and with the out of the box V-One RRR Evo WCE kit, what more can you ask It's already packed with all the goodies you want to have in the kit and it not only performs well, it is also a very durable kit...

mine has a slight push mid corner off power and on power. Would also like to have a little more rear traction in some parts of the track.

Though mine is still the stock RRR it has taken me from 22 second beginnner laps to 19s ....just starting to kiss the 18s. This has placed me in the two 3 at the club and top 9 in country and I reckon I can still improve. I I will be getting the Evo in Sept ...I am determined to support my LHS so I will wait till they receive their order.

Tell me something though ...does this lightened drivetrain of the NT1 not worry you guys? Seems the thing is made for corner eating off-power

No it does not.

All cars are limited to 1725g at sanctioned events. Therefore, there is only so much any car company can reduce weight by.

By using the correct aftermarket parts, I have drastically reduced the rotational mass of my RRR drive train. In fact, I am so light I now need to decide where to add back some weight to my chassis.

I have played around quite a bit with settings on this car, With the slight push cornering, have you tried putting heavier shock oil in the front(say 60wt) and increasing the piston holes in the shocks to 2 holes about 1.5mm each? It dramatically improved my cornering for the better.

With the rear, slightly softer springs or softer tyres pretty much did the trick there, oh I also put extra spacers on the rear hub where the link goes back to the bulkhead.

I have just bought a Kyosho team edition, very nice.
I have a couple of questions, please:

1) How do you decide what position is best for the suspension rods ( roll center, I guess)? Is it just best to go with the manual recommendations?

2) Does anyone offer any light weight screws, either aluminum or titanium

Thank you in advance

For question # 1, it really depends on the track surface you're running on. The tracks I've been on have been low to medium grip. With that, the second position from the bottom for the rear and either the second or third position for the front is a good place to start. Most of the RRR cars have also been running the medium Evo springs in the rear and the soft Evo springs in the front.

Thank you very much indeed! Are both set Titanium, or just the one? Are both shops in the US?
