Yes......
I beleive that the only real differences are the thero cutoff and the pretty carbon fiber looking case. Other than that it is pretty much the same as the VFS1 Pro. I still think that is coping is the biggest form a flatery than KO's VFS1 shoud be the flatered beyond measure. lets just list the few copies in my head.
Hara's
Corally's
Rayspeed's
Masami's
Futaba's
I think there is two more but my head hurts...lol
Great stuff. If you have a lap top get the PC connector as it makes it a breeze to setup.

do you have a computer hook up or the hand held programmer? I haven't tried to use the any other means to program the VFS1. But by far the easiest to program with a Computer....gave me agreat reason to buy a laptop...LOL

Now for the GTX I have one but haven't used it yet to race so for a good setup go to the Ask the Evicerator thread and ask for one as he is the team manager for Novak

Atsushi Hara said that the new VFS is definitely has more punch. Maybe low IR?

Hey Robert,

HOw much can you program on the Corally MMS3 without the handheld adapter or PC interface? I just bought a MMS after running a borrowing a car with a VFS2000 in it. It has a custom profile in it-the car owner said and it truly had some rip to it for sure.

How can smoke come out of the negative wire on the motor? Is the wire on the motor or on the esc? I would probably have it checked out. I've never heard of smoke coming from a wire.

Is the shotki damaged? Look for a burn mark or a bubble on the shotki. If the shotki is damaged, it will smoke everytime until it catches on fire!

The only thing that you can set is the esc to the Tx without an interface (throttle high point, neutral and brake). They key to the esc is the programming.

OK cool. I can live with that

Between the PC interface and the Handheld unit-is one more intuitive to use? I have heard some guys really struggle trying to save and exput (<=export)profiles using the handheld.

with the PC Interface.. you can VISUALLY see the throttle curve. but then you'd have to lug a laptop to the track if you want to change it. once you get the hang of the handheld.. it'll be more compact and easier to bring to the track. with the handheld you really need to be able to imagine/visualize the throttle profile in your head.

robert..sent you a PM
