are there any extra option parts that you guys recommend getting with the kit? or do you not need anything besides whats included in the kit to make it perform?

most important would be the hardened ring gears for the diffs. The Ti pivot balls and Ti hinge pins are a close second. Then if the cars lacking them CV/Univ shafts for the front.

it comes with a front one-way right? i have never driven a front one-way car before. is it hard to get used to? how is it different from say a geared car (like my NTC3)? they say you have to brake in a straight line or else you risk a spin out. any thoughts?

well it comes with both a gear diff and a front one way. On MOST tracks you will use the gear diff, only very high bite tracks would you use the one way

Yes it comes with both gear diffs, one for the front and one for the rear, and then one one way diff for the front. Toe isnt fixed on either of them...

i was reading a review on the R from an old issue and they said it had front fixed toe. i guess they're wrong.

anyways, the RR is looking even more attractive. what kind of pipes are available for it?

few based on its right side exhaust. THS and Skyline have pipes. Kyosho also has a handful of them. The Skyline is the best.
