Yes.
Only if you are on high competition against pro-drivers, you will need to worry about the fine clutch tuning. For me, the red spring and no inserts on the flyweight works fine for all conditions.

Well RDLogics passed the buck to Kfactory on the universal issue. (I guess this is part of that whole 'commitment to supporting the car thing' ).

So I've emailed Kfactory like RDLogics told me to, and hopefullly they sell the parts.

If not...then I guess I'll have to start searching to see if there are any Kyosho V1 universal pieces that will work.

Personally...I just don't get it. Front universals are one of the most replaced pieces on any nitro car. Their made to be rebuildable...so.....why not have the parts for them. Seems like common sense to me.

I have my droop set at 4mm and my ride height at 5mm in the rear, but my tires are angled inward in the top they look like this

/ car \ is that how they should be

Looks about right. It should be 3 degrees of camber.

On your shock I see a black o-ring above the shock nut (the one that adjust the tension of the spring). The o-ring should be inside the nut.

yeah I dont know how to get it in there


I have one question

those aluminum side plates have been discontinued by rd and replaced with carbon ones, they want $60 for the left and right ones.


now 3racing has them for $16 each anyone have expirience with 3racing? I own one of their flywheels in my revo and its great.

I really dont want to spend $60 on two carbon plates.

Why do you want to buy new side plates?, nothing wrong there.
Take out the shocks then the nut, inside of it you will see a little canal around where you can place the oring, then put the nut back on the shock body.

the standard setup sheet in the manual doesnt make sense!

I am finding it impossible to set my car with 4mm of droop, and a 5mm ride height with my shocks at 63mm

the only way I can have 4mm of droop and 5 mm of ride height is to remove almost all the preload off the springs and set the shocks at 59mm and even then it has 6mm of ride height
