I think that he is talking about the 2mm off-set that the rear of the car has. So you have to run 2mm off-set wheels. Almost all manufactors make 2mm off-set rear wheels you jus thave to check around. try Jaco's or Twister's I think that if you go to Ashfordhobby.com you will find the Jaco's with the off-set and twisters website will also have the tires that you are looking for. I also thing that GRP has the wheels as well.

Smile setup tips help

Hi there,

Well, I dont like asking this question to often, but honestly I have been so out of this hobby and getting back to it again, we are going to be cleaning out our onroad track that has been dorment for the last 5 years, this weekend and spraying it down with VHT mixed down on 50/50 with denatured alcohol, hopefully true value will have enoug in stock.

I am running my Kyosho RRR stock out of the box, and looking for some advice on the following track condition.

Any advice would be greatly apprieciated, I know more data will be required, but I am trying to the get the local club back into action with onroad 1/10 nitro, since 1/8 buggy trucks and truggies are well underway now.

Looking forward to some feedback and comments, thanks in advance.

Try a lower roll center in the rear for more traction. Move the upper camber link (on the bulkhead) up and inside and the lower hinge pins in lowest position. Also, use softer tires, say: 38 front and 38 rear or just a softer rear, say: 40 front and 38 rear.

Just a note, some guys are trying out the G4's on the track, it's so dusty, and the G4 is glued on the ground, just something to note that the g4's are coming with differentials in the front, unlike the RRR.

Would one consider a differential instead of the RRR one way stock setup ?

Thanks

Probably, no one uses oneway... They all use diff or solid-axle upfront. I, myself will try to use solid axle. If your track has low grip, go with solid-axle and 10k in the rear... and work from there... if you see it has alot of traction, go to 20k or 30k. Also play with the rear anti-roll bar to get more or less traction.

I think racer should try all three different types of diff do to driving styles and practice.

On a dusty / slippery track - the front diff is definitely the way to go. Try it with 30,000 wt. diff lube (use thinner oil for more steering). Also, you may want to lower the front roll-center by rasing the upper arm hinge pins.
