Guys, I got to try out the new 4mm shock tower from Skyline Racing today and I'm very happy with it. Sturdy, mounts perfectly and the 2 optional holes help in tuning although I didn't use it today. It's similar to the Kyosho shock tower used at the IFMAR Worlds only 1.5mmm thicker in construction. This is one of the only few hop-ups neccessary for the car.

JR sucks in the servo department. Both of my JR servos burned out, and it was set up right. Go for either Hitec, Futuba or KO propo servos.

My top choice is still KO, then Futaba then Hitec (I am referring to Digital Servos)

KO 2143 been using this as steering servo eversince they came out so probably like 3~4yrs now

Futaba 9451 both steering and throttle on my MRX havent had any problem since day one

Hitec, I have used Hitec servos on my 5th before, 1/4 scale for steering, High Torque for throttle and front hydralic brakes, the one for hydralic burnt out once, but it was my bad, epa wasnt set up right but Hitec warranty is very good, I just sent it in and fix it for me no question asked!

Hi

I just got all the parts that you asked me to order. But i Think it is missing the cup/ housing. do you think it will be same as the v one rr ? I hope coz i got a spare one of those lying around.

At the Kyosho world cup i saw some of the rubber tyre users here they were putting a paste on the top of their brand new tyres. Would you know what that is and what it does.. I guesss its extra grip or long life for the 20 min. qualifying....

Aziz

That sounds like a tyre additive, used a lot by Electric racers.
Should check if you are allowed to use it as it is banned in UK and Euro events on IC cars.

just a heads up...

In the Febuary issue of Radio Control Car Action, they finally review the RRR and give it excellent ratings. Those interested should check out the article.

Howz this engine and has anyone used this on the RRR. I suspect this to be a Mod. Sirio is it true ?

How would this engine perform in hot climate..
