Anyone know if the Serpent Impulse Centax Clutch will fit on the V-ONE R?

Why do you want the serpent clutch when you have the RR clutch as an option? Any benefits?

In the US there are no RR parts available.

Heck the V-ONE RR is not even available in the US either. Tower Hobbies (aka Great Planes model Distributors) do not want to import the V-ONE RR since V-ONE R sales are already slow in this country and importing the RR would kill sales of regular V-ONE R's.

Its slow because Great Planes set the prices too high. Cost for a dealer to buy a V One R is 249.95 with no discount (last time I checked). Towerhobbies has them for around 350. Towerhobbies are only 20 to 50 dollars above the cost, but this time around its 100 bucks on top of cost. So blame towerhobbies aka great planes.

NO NOT MUGEN!!!!! Blasphemy! Look at my sig file no more Mugen! Actually I was inquiring about the Serpent one since I saw one on auction on eBay at a low price so I was just thinking if it would be worth it. I heard though from Kim that the Neo Centax was a direct fit.

Sherman!! Hey welcome aboard. Sorry to hear about your car. Is this after I talked to you? My car ran away last weekend when someone jumped on my channel. Luckily... nothing broke...but it was badly tweeked. So I pulled out my one-way solid rear R and worked out a killer set-up. It was so dialed...WICKED fast. I am kind of glad my other car ran away. So... hopefully something good will come out of your incident as well. Good luck.

Hey Jonathan...now if you're going to GIVE it to me then that's a different story. I will accept it if you're giving it to me.

So you too need a new chassis! Because of both of your stories, I have now added a cheap rubber band (courtesy of the morning newspaper) to my failsafe I already have on the car. By the way Jonathan what time you plan on being at CASTLE this Sunday?

Nahhh... chassis is fine. Something else is binding though. I am too stoked about my other car to bother with it for now.

I will be at Castle 7 ish.
