Default Atomic VM-II article from Hong Kong

Attached are pages of most recently published article about VM-II from Hong Kong. I will provide the translation in PDF subsequently. The Forum rejected the PDF due to size limit; I need to break it up.

Spec-R is the company that makes a high quality CV universal for the VM-II. According to the video it minimizes vibration for the inner wheel especially during extreme turning angle:

Also for VM-II

Default Servo

What type of servo is required for this car? It looks like a low profile standard servo but I can't tell for sure. Will 1/12th servos work?

you can use any standard servo. low profile is always good for needed extra space to lay your esc and reciever. After all the electronics/battery a 1/12 servo might not handle all the force from high speed turning.

Default Tires and spares

I've ordered my VM-II but need some advice on tires and inserts for carpet racing. I was thinking the Atomic 32's with the medium insert as that would be closest to Jaco Blues I think but any adviece would be appreciated. Also I've ordered Arms, C-Hubs, knuckles, sway bars and a spur, anything else that I should get going into a race?

These cars look like a ton of fun. I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone that actually had one could answer.

1.) what size and pitch spur gear does the kit use?
2.) What is a good pinion to start with, with the 13.5 brushless motor
3.) best tires for carpet?

To anyone that actually knows, THANK YOU.

i would buy the ball diff for the front! If you are using lipo I strongly recommend softer springs. I am using tamiya mini shocks and ball diff frt/bck

Default atomic

The stock rear diff is steel and is heavy. The xray t2 ball diffs fit into the vm2. Although new they are expensive, if you find them used for about $25-$30, they are better than the stock diffs. The xray 34t composite spool also fits the vm2. From my experience, it has a lot less outdrive wobble than the stock spool.

The vm2 shocks are copies of the trf shocks but are not anywhere near as smooth. I used tamiya teflon pistons and bladders in the vm2 shocks and they are better, but still not as good as the trf shocks.

Atomic also makes a lipo battery box for the xray t2 series that fits into the vm2 (you don't use the plastic end pieces.) Makes putting batteries in much easier and it protects the battery.
