Just ordered the VFS-1 J value set off of the Ko Propo site... figured that for 150 bucks it wasn't going to get much better than that! I guess I better get reading on the 1300+ post backlog here before I fry the thing!!

First question, even before the thing arrives: Is there any advantage to running a full Ko Propo setup (ESC/Radio/Servo)? My radio will be replaced at some point in the near future, so the Helios is definitely an option... albeit a pricy one!

your car will be faster by .00001 seconds...
no advantage... it's just how well you drive...
the Helios is definately a good radio to upgrade to.

You only have to use 1 type of manufacturer's sticker on your body = KO as a sponsor... LOL

Thanks V12. . Better run with temp cutoff and miss one heat than buying a new speedo.

Default Twister Profile Settings

Hi guys,

I've got a VFS with the handheld programmer. I was wondering if anyone could share the profile settings of the Twister, I'd like to see what the differences are with the factory settings compared to a Twister.

Thanks (Salamat)

LD means to load a "saved" profile that was previously saved on the handheld. there are 3 memory slots in handheld adapter for saving profiles.

Yes sure. Also a burned ESC doesn´t look and smell that good.

Default VFS-1 Pro Comp in the UK?

Is the latest version of the VFS-1 actually available officially in the UK? I've looked at the sites of all the big suppliers and I haven't seen a single carbon-cased KO-brand speedo.

All I've seen are old-model Hara Twisters and the Yokomo Masami and Rayspeed models (these are carbon case, right?).

Would I HAVE to grey import to get a Pro Comp with Setting Adaptor??? Big shame if I would...

The Yokomo Masami and Rayspeed models both are available as old and new version.
