For running the wide rear, u would have to get a wider hex hub... Kahawara has them... but if u are willing to wait, u can save a bit more on getting the stock plastics...
For wider rear tires Kyosho have just used a longer metal outdriver with a spacer to push the hex out further. The dogbones are shorter too to bring the car back to 200mm, but you should be able to get away with original dogbones without the O-rings in the outdrivers! The plastic hubs are still the same

Default V1RR compared to V1R

With the wider rear tyres, it means they are more stable while doing those sharp turns. Those original dogbones could still use if there are available gaps between tyres and chasis.

But I guess the basic concept still applied here, which mean it still do brakes instead of doing fast steering methods. Anyone has tried VOneRR like to comment on the road performances?

Cheers

The shorter dogbones is just to keep the car race legal at 200mm, you can still use the std dogbones and re-adjust the pivot balls/turnbuckles. This 'may' bring the car slightly over 200mm.... although I have not tried!

Nemesis.....I was told that the pipes that you mentioned are great top end pipes....a good combination for the x-12 5 port since those engines give a good amount of low end torque with any pipe....

I have been running just the stock 50 weight oil on my shocks. I want to knwo what different weight oils do to the handling on the car. I would like to know the effect of heavier oil up front, lighter oil up front, heavier oil in the back and lighter oil in the back. Also would like to know why you would adjust shock oil weight over using different springs. This area I am stioll weak in my understanding as far as handling and tuning my car.

Oils don't determine the handling of your car - springs do.

Oils control springs - springs control the car.

You should set you oil so your springs return the car to its correct ride height - if your car bounces at any part of the track, get softer springs or heavier oil. The lower the oils, the less responsive and this usually results in high chassis roll, and a less 'twitchy' car.

Try it - put light oil in your front and a heavier oil in the rear and your car should oversteer and vice versa due to one end transferring weight quicker then the other.

Lets not forget about the effect of different shock pistons...

Heavier Front or Softer Rear

The turn radius is wider, but smoother. The car doesn't 'hook' suddenly

The car is easier to drive, and high-speed steering feels very nice.

Softer Front or Heavier Rear

The steering reacts quicker.

More and better low-speed steering

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!!! Thank You. Yeah, I was running the car that one sunday at that parking lot that I told you about. Well, I had spoke with you a little of the incident. Well, I was going around the parking lot for a couple of hours before the big crash. I was standing at the far left of where the car hit this drainage part of the middle of the lot, and somehow the car just lost control and headed towards the stair case, we were on the 5th floor, so you know what was going through my mind at the time I saw the car heading full speed, I took off running towards the stair case but it hit the wall so hard that it put a dent in the concret wall, at this time I'm not sure if the motor is damage yet, Have no time to work on any of my cars. The damage is consider total lost at this time by looking at it with out taking any parts off. The car was fast though, I use a little soda in my nitro ( 19% soda ) It made a difference though

I was looking at the latest RC Nitro and like Motorman (Dennis Richey) stated, saw an ad for the new Ofna Picco 7 Port .12 Rear Exhaust Turbo. It's just funny because Ofna's name is slapped on it hehehe.
