Some Differences from a regular R version (comparing it to the GRP version)- Different rear body mounts, Different Front bumper, the RR comes with a transponder mount on the side, I think the RR also had a Centax on it (I believe)

Dragon, if the price is not too much more than u would be mad to ignore the RR....... Add the cost of the standard V One R and then add the cost of purchasing the hop-ups that the RR has. If i tried to hop my V One up with those hop-ups here in Australia it could be around $900-950 dollars for us over here. And thats with no engine

Can't wait to get my hands on the RR hop up to my kit! Centax body mounts and all! Hope fully the front and rear shock mounts can be even lower than the present... savs the trouble of tuning the sway bars... but since it comes with the "hand shake", I don't think so...
Any idea when it gona be out in Japan...then HK?

but someone said the RR is more for lola bodies, and have to spend some on modifying it to fit sedans on it.....

or does it have some extra special cool hop ups that im not aware of?

I heard today that Kawahara or some other company is coming out with some sort of adjustable rear diff for the V one R,I am just wondering how that will effect the car??? I hear its something like a Torsen diff like they use in 1/8th buggies

they are completely different things.

The adjustable diff is what you call manual adjust diff. the advantage is that you dont need to dissemble the diff to change diff oil for different track conditions. Kyosho makes it.

The kawahara one is not in any case a LSD as the design is to lock up the rear axle under high REV.

Eric vasutin, the owner of CASTLE HOBBIES of San Jose, CA was running the Kawahara Clutch Diff in his V-One R and won first place in the rubber sedan nitro class. Although we know he is a VERY GOOD driver, and probably could win with a a TYCO RC car, nonetheless, his car looked very smooth and controlled with that clutch diff in the rear. I asked him about it, and he says that it does lock up the diff like a solid rear at high rpms, and a regular diff at lower rpms.
