It will be easier this way and you can avoid the piston and sleeve locking up when it's at the top dead center...

If I remember it right, the OSTZ engine comes with a collet. I opted to use the collet that came with the clutch assembly from the kit...
any particular reason, or does it just work better this way?

I had an issue with the collet that came with the OS engine. It was too short and the flywheel was touching the engine block and bearing. When I used the Kyosho collet, the flywheel had enough space between the engine.

can anyone post a good setup they are currently running on there rrr wce? Im running mine with the stock setup and want it better. Mine seems to push a little offpower steering and loose on exit. I did drive a bone stock mtx4 this weekend and it was better than my rrr by almost a second per lap. I just want my rrr to have the corner speed and handling charcteristics of that mtx4. The track I ran on is fairly larger. If anyone has heard of it, it is 301 raceway

I would actually increase the droop front and rear. If you are pushing offpower, increasing the droop in the rear will allow more weight to transfer to the front tires under decelleration. (The chassis can raise more without the wheels trying to come off the ground). Increasing the droop in the front will do the same thing but the other way around when you are accelerating. It will allow the front to come up and thereby transfer weight to the rear giving a bit more rear traction.

I've looked back to page 300 trying to find someone that is in the states that sells 3 racing parts. I have had a on-line store tell me that they have ordered the parts I need but they haven't put them on their web site for me to purchase and I need the parts this week. I would like to have them for the GLC next week.

Also am I understanding this correct, the new shocks are better than the original RRR shocks?

Thanks

What 3Racing part(s) are you looking for? (i.e. part numbers) http://www.rc-toro.com has some - but make sure you tell him to wrap your stuff in bubble wrap packaging or put it in a box.

Raceday Hobbies also has some K Factory parts for the RRR that might work for you in a pinch. A little pricey, but very good quality. http://www.racedayhobbies.com/kfactory_kyosho.html

Word is that the new shocks are better than the original.

Squish the most common problem with the old shock it is very easy to pinch the bladders & then the shocks would not be very consistent since it would comtract more air
