Thank you in advance
Yes, I think so. I used it on one of other Triple Rs. Because it's thicker than the stock chassis and has additional webbing under the front diff, it increases the stiffness of the car. The car will flex less, making it more stable in and out of high speed corners and in high traction situations.

I don't know all the part numbers, T-Laner. There was a conversion kit to go from the V one RRR WCE to the V one RRR Evo, but not to the RRR Evo WCE.

Default VZW054 Universal Swing Shaft

Can anyone tell me whether the VZW054 Universal Swing Shaft is backwards compatible and suits the V1RR Evo as well. (NB. RR only, not RRR)

Default rear diff oil

Hi guys
when is it a good idea to go heavier in rear diff oil?
i currently use 30,000wt and have built up a 50,000wat to try out

what changes would a heavier rear diff oil give?
i drive on a vht prepped high grip trackw ith flowing and tight turns.

Obviously, the heavier you go on the lube, the less it will act as a diff and more like a locked axle. The inside wheel will be slipping more in tight turns reducing traction. You will be drifting the car. It will be "loose" under power in turns. ... could be fun!

BTW, I'm running 100,000 in my front to lock it up (and have front brakes) and it still moves.

I still have the SPARE PARTS / OPTIONAL PARTS sheets from the RR Evo and I don't see VZW054 as an option. I saw #695016 Power Universal Swingshaft-(for wide tires) for the rear only. On Kyosho America's website, I found #VZW055 Universal Swing Shaft-(for foam rear tires). Maybe, you can use a combination of the two types?

I found VZW054 on the parts list for the V1RRR and the part name is "Universal Swingshaft (For V-One)" for front.

And because it only says for V-One, i thought it might be compatible with all the V-One series cars, of which i own the V1RR evo.

Other parts on the list actually say (RR evo/RRR), so i think V-One would mean all of them...

Your thoughts pls.

I'm not sure but the VZW054 for RRR front is too short. Although for RR Evo it will fit as it uses a bigger diff cup and has the same suspension arm lenght of RRR
