It could be made by kyosho as in the VoneRR !

I have been putting up candies on my V1R but dont have chance to run it because of busy at work.





Possibly but I figured you would be the one to ask

As in eye candy for the V one R ,maybe I should send my GOOD friend W Fok over there to see this, so he can report on what the R/C master has in his goodie bag

Great! Baker with the TC3 is going to be here in San Diego doing a toys for Tots race. Well, wonder which barry will show up? Bad Boy Barry who will run you down like a fat lady hearing the blue light special on isle 3 candy. or will it be Mr. Big Time the magnanamous one, or will it be just Good ole Barry, lapping the field? Only two days of tortuous wonder left. If could only get my hands on a reflex and modify it (lighten it up by a half a pound). I wouldn't be shaking so much. I guess the smart thing to do to keep my sanity and my car in one piece is to go back a class if no ones looking (WHIMP!).

But no! I can challege the evil Baker and reign victorious! Who am I kidding? I'll be splattered against the wall like a NO FEAR sticker.

Default Got my Reflex!

Picked up the Reflex today for $259 at Ultimate. Long night to night building. It is raining tonight so maybe no racing tomorrow.

I finished building the car and all I can say is that this is the worst set of instructions I've ever dealt with. Well the instructions in combination with how the parts are bagged. The final product is awesome though. I am very excited.

damo- I agree. Of course the last 3 cars I built were Associated and Tamiya so maybe I'm spoiled. I do think that it's strange that all the parts are blue, and that it only comes with an Airtronics servo saver. Also, it says "there is a pilot shaft option" but that is all it says. It doesn't give part numbers or anything.

Oh well... maybe future kits will be a little better. The car itself, however, looks great. I haven't put it together yet because the chassis is being anodized, but I'll post some pics once it's done.

What color? Oh yeah and the front hubs binding makes me mad b/c in the photo of the car you can see they are already binding. So they would have had to know about it from the start.

Ahh. I haven't started putting it together, so I haven't had that problem yet, but I'll be on the lookout for it.

1. From what I can tell (although I've never tried it) a side exhaust engine will fit.

2. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability

3. It looks like what you see in the magazines, except for the colors. The only differences are that everything you see in the magazines that is red is blue on the actual car, except the chassis- it is silver.

Does the Reflex come with a clutch, clutch bell, flywheel or will need to get them. Just want to know what I will need that the car does not come with. So I know what to keep off my Ofna
So far this is what I know I will need to keep.

Servo saver
servo's
motor, pipe, header
reciver, radio

Things I need to Buy
Battery

If I missed somthing please tell me Thanks!

From what I've read in a review, and an advertisement, the oranage/red chassis is just for display purposes, and the actually chassis is a natural silver finish (like all others)
