Default Is mine too out dated?

I have a V One RR that i bought 2 years ago. I never got around to putting it together. Would I still be able to compete with it today? And What kind of motor do you suggest I use?? My Local track is under ROAR rules. Thanks anyone for your input!!

Hey blast
if you track is a club level track you would be well off, if you have any hotshoe drivers and they have RRRs you will see the differnce in performance, they uselly only inprove as new kits come out. if you are a beginner that car will suit you fine till you get the basics. As far as motor that depends on you track, surface, traction,size and your driving ability. i'm not trying to insult you i just don't know you driving ability, so any way i love the italian line of motors, novarossi picco sirio, these are all grat makers. just look through mags and see what the fast guys are running, novarossi has a 12+3ct that is a missle or the LL3 that is a long stroke motor grat bottom end. and these are all 3 port which you can run at your track with roar rules, and if they aren't fast enough for ya then get it modded. hope that helps

i dont see v one rr being outdated, in fact i had one and it's a well design car and strong like a tank, i am not too concern about competitiveness but rather parts avaliability.

the V One R/ V One RR foam bumper, upper bumper mount, & front body posts should be the same. you only need the additional add on body posts that go onto the floating rear pod for the rear to mount the higher sedan bodies. that is the only differenct between the sedan and lola equiped RR.

icon, thank for the info but, the lola body on the front is completly different, it has a broad front bumper that is not foam and the body mounts on the front slope down to suit the slopping front of the lola
also need other parts battery holder and a few smaller parts

the sedan version of the the RR still has that large plastic bumper you are referring to. that sloping front mount for the lola is replaced with the regular R/RR upper body mount/brace to hold a foam bumper in ontop of the plastic bumper. you can see it on their kyosho's website how this worked.

I had owned the original V One R up to the V One RR and kept up with the car until the RR Evo and newer RRR. Please feel free to ask any questions.

also the k-factory KV1 is virtualy the same car with only the tank and 2 speed gearbox the only different parts on the car,
all the k factory suspentions and chassis components should be a match
for setups sam and laurie g and c should be able to get you going faster
good to see you got a good strong car for competition,
you'll find it quite a bit faster than the homoto
are you going to run it next sunday??

you can run either bottom bumper plate,
you just need the top plate and the body post set is a seperate item

Gosh! I really feel ya! I also have several K cars that are out of date with the RRR-MTX4 trend. So long as you can get parts, there is nothing wrong with these cars. I have a couple of RR Evos that are great cars as well but there is nothing said about them nowadays on the boards.

Since you got the RR that means it came with the centax / 3D clutch and thats a good thing. There's a lot you can do by tuning your clutch and a centax makes it easy.

Novarossis are great motors but they can be difficult to tune and break-in. You may want to consider an O.S. because they are easier to work with and are a bit more reliable. Also stay away from turbo plug motors because turbo plugs are expensive. Its better that you focus more of your money on tires instead.

Good luck racing and have fun.
