Don't know if it will easily break. But a fresh idea and may be lighter than the alloy one.

Well, I purposely made it bright since I wear glasses and have trouble keeping track of my car at night I'm not sure if the
Blitz body is available in the US. It's available online at www.rc-mushroom.com

Well, I try to cut my body to the best that I can After that, if there are any burrs in the cuts that I made, I smoothen them out using sandpaper 150 grit

The next time I disassemble my car, I'm going to weigh all of my upgrades and compare it to the weight of the stock parts. Titanium upgrades do offset the increase in weight of the aluminum upgrades, but I don't know by how much. On a postal scale, my car was a little underweight the last time I weighed it.

Just installed my Kawahara front shock tower. It's thicker than the stock towers. Also, it has a groove that fits perfectly on the area where you mount the towers

The Kawahara rear shock tower is very thick compared to the stock Kyosho rear shock tower. I guess this rear tower upgrade will last a lifetime Also, it only has 5 shock positions to choose from compared to the 6 shock positions of the stock

I also changed my Kyosho aluminum wheel hubs to the Kawahara wide aluminum wheels hubs It is much easier to work with this wheel hubs since it has a set screw to clamp it down to the drive pin as compared to Kyosho ones that you have to work you way around the o-ring which holds the drive pin

Doki, the great job again on your V-One!!

I have some question,

For the Front shock stay, is it necessary to have that thickness

For Body post plate, I found there is one which obtains the transponder hole. Would it be better?


Just curious to know, Thanks!!

The kyosho option one is really a fool design!
It is very difficult in disassembling and easily damages the o-ring.
I destroyed it twice and twice......so many times.........
