Hi Cristian!
Which motor mount are compatible with multi-opcion rear suspension to use tri-damper system?

King regards from Granada (Spain)

If used as a disk damper, it works with most (if not all) mounts out there. Otherwise, as a tri-shock it has to be used with the PN 94-98 V3 mount (with long arm) or their newest 94-96mm mount. Our new motor mount, which is due in about 2 months, will also be compatible.

ct what weight oil do you recommend to start with in the kyosho oil shock when used as a tri damper? no disk just shocks.

I personally use Sweep Racing 450 cst oil. This is about the equivalent of Associated 35 wt oil. I make sure that I fill it up to the brim and then bleed it out so that the shock shaft pushes out 75% of the way. This is the rebound, and yes, it is quite a bit, but I like how it feels. It makes the car accelerate much harder.

As a little side note, please note that this is meant to be used as a DPS or Tri-shock, not a combination of both.

Ran the kit last night at High Speed in NC as a tri-shock with a K yellow main shock and was very happy with the feeling it gave the car. I have been running a DIY side damper with the K-yellow main shock for a while, which worked well, but the car transitioned faster and returned to center better with the tri-shock setup. Thanks RR for a nicely engineered product.

Any one have any idea about the thread sizes on these shock bodies? I have ruined three of them now just trying to turn the nut. Today it was a brand new one.......

3mm. You can get the tap and die on tower hobbies for about 5 bucks each. Well worth it though.

Just found out.....ended up buying a 2.5 first, cause one of my buddies said it was smaller than 3mm. Oh well, I have both now :D The shocks after running one pass through the tap and die are worlds different! Well worth the $20 I paid for the three items....

Anyway, thanks Matt!

Hi CT, I'm running a full RR MR-03 and i am very happy with it!
i just miss the motor mount that will be the cherry on top of the cake :)
What grease would you suggest for the side shocks?
At local RCP,which has med-low grip, i am ok with Kyosho 5K,
in the K top shock i use 400 cst, don't remember which brand.
next month i will run a big event in Latina, not so far from Rome, there will be a huge track with ton of grip.
what range of grease and oil do you recommend to bring?

Thanks

Sergio.

I run 400-500 CST, depending on how bumpy the track is. The smoother, the heavier I go.

On the side shocks, I pretty much always use 15000 wt grease. Only when the track is super bumpy or the grip is poor will I go anything lighter. This is with the Kyosho Colored Diff Grease. I don't know about other stuff, if it is thicker or how it compares.

hi chris, i tried to run the multi option rear suspension as a DPS on the RR motor mount. however i found that the damper post is waaaaay to high for the bottom spring of the DPS. i end up compressing the bottom dps spring, and i don't like it. any suggestion to have both bottom and upper spring has zero pre-load?

Is the Damper arm on the motormount set to the lowest position?

Flip the post upside down, or raise the damper plate or both.

I have a question about the rear shocks. Will the Atomic AWD151 set work to replace the plastic pieces? The plastic shocks are too hard to adjust, and I don't have a die kit to re-thread them. Is the alloy set any smoother? Anyone know how much more the alloy pieces weigh when compared to the plastic?

My first impression is no, since they have different ball joints. But please somebody says otherwise. I would like to use the metal one as well.

it fits just fine but the shocks are not designed to sit at any angle. basically they are designed to move straight up and down with no pivoting at all. i bought 3 sets to try this out and came up empty handed.

Thanks chad508. Has anyone tried mounting the PN TDS dampers MR2990?

You can do that. You need to cut the male and female end shorter on the PN side shocks.

chad508
2012.01.09, 07:37 PM
just be careful when cutting if you go to short they will pull apart if the car flips and the spring will go flying. its a bad way to end a race.

Like Chad said....you might want to get more than 1 set to experament till you get right length.

CAn we use the frp ball joint in the metal sas shock?

chad508
2012.01.09, 11:07 PM
No the ball is smaller and mounts in the shock completely different from the plastic ball. The metal shock has a collar that goes on first then the shock and then the ball goes through the shock and is all tightened together with a nut. Basically the shock is sandwiched between the collar and the ball
