There v1. Run it every week with 10.5 and boost/turbo
Replaced gears with v2 $5 fix
So the update between V1 and V2 is just the internal gears?

The gears I got said v2 but I could not tell any difference between the v1
They may be slightly harder plastic or some thing ???
The original gears hold up well I would not worry about it unless you break one.

Does the kit come with front and rear sway bars as standard?

No the kit doesnt come with sway bars...
One of the add-on options im looking into for mine at the moment... but questioning how much difference they will make, as mine already handles pretty well!

Makes a ton of difference on mine but I am running the stiff chassis. My car is now more zero than zero s. Never tried them on the stock chassis but they have become a major tuning point for me. Given the low cost go ahead and get some. That can't hurt anything. I will add that if you are still learning shock and spring and chassis balance and set up then wait for the sway bars. Too much adjustability may be overwhelming.

Thanks for the advice. I'm a noob to touring cars and will be running in 13.5t class at my club on Tarmac/asphalt. So I assume it will be ok to run without sway bars until I learn and get better at driving??

yes you can run without sway bars without any problems. This will also allow you to concentrate on learning how to tune the rest of the chassis. I only added the bars after I understood the tire angles shocks springs and balance of the car.

Can this car handle the power of a brushless 7000KV motor?
We don't have rules here so we run whatever motor we like.

What would be best for it that won't need a spur/motor mount change?

What pinion gear should i use?

Have a look at petitrc dot com.

They've got a lot of good setup sheets for the zero and a gear chart.

Once you have the gear chart, you can use a generic FDR calculator.

My Zero arrived Friday and I had received my upgrades a few days earlier so I am set for Christmas.

First up, size is 2S lipo.

Secondly, you'd want 20C or more preferably, however both discharge and the capacity requirements depend on what you plan to do.

I.e. for bashing, get the largest capacity you can afford. For racing, capacity is less important unless you run enduro style races, so a smaller capacity can be traded off against high burst discharge rate or C rating and weight.

Note if you do plan to race the Hobbyking batteries are not roar legal yet, even though Hobbyking claim a few of them are....


Good luck.
