I have both, and i think it depends on where you race. please see my observations posted a few posts back. but here is my quick decision matrix:

traction:
high-FW, low-RRR

size:
large-RRR, small-FW

condition:
debries-FW, clean-RRR

maintenance:
easy-FW, more work-RRR

upgrades needed:
more-FW, less-RRR

handling:
stable-FW, agile-RRR

I like them both, and I cannot pick one over the other.

So the RRR is more suited for low traction conditions?

That is my opinion for now.

The FW handles incredibly well when there is traction. It holds the lines and does not traction roll easily. On the other hand, when there is no traction the FW is very difficult to drive as it will push and at the same time the rear breaks loose easily too.

The RRR feels a lot lighter and seems to deal with traction changes better. However, I have not run the car very much and more track time is needed to tell.

Default shock length of new RRR

I have a Team Magic G4 and the shocks are terrible. I was just wondering what the shock lenght's are on this car and how well you think the shocks were built. By looking at the pictures they seem to be built very well.

Thanks,
Mike

You can adjust the shock length by using different length ball cups in the bottom (there are three) and I am sure you can find one that fits.

the Kyosho shocks on the R series are excellent , definitely better the the G4 shocks IMHO and among the best ive used. HPI alu shocks arent bad either , both are super smooth !

Shock lenght should allow full suspension travel , make sure you use ball cups that allow you to thread the shaft in fully , if the ball cup is too long and the next size down is too short .... get out that dremel tool !!
