hi, would anyone share his idea on this...

i changed my clutch, then after 2-3 runs in the track i tried to start my engine again, starting is normal as it goes to idle the way it is, but i notice that when i rev it the wheels are not moving i tried to rev it for about 5-7 times then it moves, but at first it wont move, i know this is not normal. I remove the plug and notice that there are a lot of unburned fuel inside... i can still run the car with a good performance, im just thinking why the wheels are not moving for several revs after starting.

wonder my Low end mixt is rich or lean, probably not the top end because i can feel it has a good top end with a light trail of smoke.
and i the engine smells different, maybe because of the unburned fuel... am i damaging the engine?

Does anyone have experience this? please i need your ideas...

Thanks in advance.
Hi bulletdays,

It sounds more like it's the clutch setting. Try Backing out the
Clutch Nut (thing that holds down the spring) little by little until
you find your clutch engaging where you like it to.

You may also want to make sure the end bell play is right.
Hope this helps.

What's up Ron, how is it going?

on the rrr I noticed that there is a lil play on the upper arm, is this ok or does it have to be shimmed?

J !

I am doing good, thank you.
How about you my friend, how have you been?

Yeah, it's typical to find some play on the Upper Arms. I also found
some on the rear lower arms and likewise on the others. Kyosho
has a shim set which we use. Get the Kyosho Manufacturer Stock #96641.

Hope this helps.

When you get a chance, please send me an email on how things
are going in your end of the Globe. Also looking forward to seeing
you again soon.

Brake Problem-

I seem to have managed to strip the plastic diff pulley which is keyed for the brake disc to sit on,

Does anyone hav any suggestions on how this may have happened and what settings etc. do I need to check to ensure it does not happen again.

Cheers
Dickie

That happened to me too. I guess that the brake disk heated up and melted the plastic. I haven't had problems with the second one I put it though. At any rate, Kyosho makes an aluminum one which I will be getting shortly.

Hey guys! I would like to make a small question. I replaced the front one-way diff with the regular diff, as a solid axis.
However, even in the tight position for the belt, the diff makes contact with the ballcups of the steering system!!! Anyone had that problem? What can I do? Am I doing something wrong?

(I used the diff case provided in the original package)

Is there a spring set for the RRR? If there isn't, what part numbers should I be looking at to compile a spring set? I'm at rcmart.com but there seems to be two types of springs and I don't know which go with the RRR.

Dave,

You would look for Kyosho Manufacturer Stock # :

- VZ072-3517 Front Silver 3x1mm
- VZ073-4516 Rear Silver 4x1.6mm
- VZ072-3017 Front Black 3x1.7mm (Comes with the car kit)
- VZ073-4016 Rear Black 4x1.6mm
- VZ072-2517 Front Gold 2.5x1mm
- VZ073-3516 Rear Gold 3x1.6mm (Comes with the car kit)

Hope this helps..

I dont understand...

I regards to alternate pipe mounting positions...I was sold a topdeck mount and assured it would work for rrr but as mentioned before the mount was too long. Instead of mounting it under the deck I mounted ontop. And it is still protected by other parts on front stay etc. Doesnt quite look as slick as the topdeck under mount though. Oh well.
