Mine did. I got the 3racing aluminium one now.

When you say the main plastic insert for the front-diff got stripped, was this the pulley teeth that actually stripped off the pulley?
Cheers
It was track in FT Myers ( Winternats). It is very high bite track, fairely large, and very high flow, most of the time everybody tryed to stay on throtle.
You can see pic of it on www.winternats.com

The insert has a recess that the axle pin slots in. It wore out so the axle could spin in the insert and so no drive to the front.

Hey Francis.
yes with RRR it is different story-this car is so suitable for him, I can't even belive it.
Thanks a lot
Edward

Thanks

Add a bit more toe-in to the rear......2.5deg to 3 deg should tame the rear end right down and then start fine-tuning it back to suit your track/driving style from here.

Top Gun 777, thanks for the link....yes, its certainly a flowing track....very nice layout !
Theres quite a few RRR`s starting to get on the tracks here in Sydney and the 26th & 27th Feb should see quite a number of them vying for the Sydney Nitro GP at Eastern Creek......however, I`m sure theres going to be plenty of the usual MTX3`s etc out there (as per usual) trying to prevent the RRR`s from dominating.
During the Australian Championships held late last year at Moorebank (www.nswrcrcc.org) a RRR posted the fastest lap (18.59) during the A final. Although ultimately finishing 10th, its a very good result considering the short period of time that the RRR had been out then.
Cheers

You can probably get it from Elite in California. But the problem might be that Great Planes (the sole distributor) has not imported them, thus not officially available on the market.

Why don't you just buy it from Japan. I think everyone did or got it from HK. It's easy and you can pay by PayPal.

Alternatively you can just get the regular RRR and get the upgrade parts separately.

I don't think any shops in the US have the WC kit. It will be awhile before all of them hear about the regular kit. You'll want to get the kit out of country anyway. Great Planes just takes your wallet and stiffs you good with their prices.

A WC kit can be had for a little over what you would pa for a regular kit here after tax.

racing4evo is right,

Get the WC Edition if possible. If you buy the regular kit and then end up upgrading all the parts you will be WAY over what the WC edition kit costs. (Not to mention the option parts can't be found yet here either)

If you don't plan on upgrading all the parts then the std kit would be fine.

Does anyone know if the WC edition kit is even coming to North America? I know it took them forever to get the RRR here.

Ciao,

John
