I have a few questions though. I have started to read through this MASSIVE thread but there is so much to read.
1. Any tips for when i build it? I read somthing about replacing the header screw because the 2.6x25mm was to small. i dont like the idea of tapping out a bigger hole as it is my 1st nitro car i have owned.
2. Painting the body- it is a supra- if you have any commnets about this or thoughts just tell me!!!
3. I will be using an old stick futaba radio and servo the radio is the FP-T2MR and the servos are FP-S28, they are about 12 years old! oh the reciever is FP-R2GS. is this going to be ok to start on? the hoppy shop told me it should.
4. anything else i dhould know or what ever?!?!?!?!
Where did you buy your V-One S?
Just make sure the radio is in good order. You wouldn't want to lose control of your fast v-one s.
Also, building the kit was fine, so you don't have to replace anything. When i was building mine, it was a bitch to twist in the rods. They will tell you to use a cloth and hold it with a plier, but don't, use a rubber glove or something. You will understand me once you get to that part.
The supra, hmm its quite a nice shell. Castrol or au Cerumo ?
Just paint the car whatever colour you wish. Follow the instruction manual and you will be fine.
Thought after building the kit, make sure you got the general idea for 'breaking in' your engine. So just first build your kit
