It was really fun you missed out. Lance probably did the best out of all of us as he made the A Mains in both 1/10 .15 On road and also with Expert Rubber .12 . I only managed to get 4th place in the B Main for Expert Rubber .12 . Well I should go out and practice driving some more.

The other hand is OK. I want one for myself just to try it for the heck of it hehehe!
Actually if you play Gran Turismo 3 on Playstation 2, the game controller works in a similar fashion...

Default racing maybe?

probably racing away or waiting for world cup to watch

I been seeing quite a lot of activities in Mugen thread and not much here!

Anyone got any idea why kyosho site are designed such horribly? They don't seems to bother to change their web site design for so long! and it is unfriendly to use. Well, maybe they should take a look at Mugen or other web sites for feedback.

V-One R or RR or even S is a good car, but their manuals are no where to be seen in their web site. Not like Serpent or Mugent.

Just my 2 cents.

Chris: The 5 Star universals are too brittle...I have seen a
large number of broken universals in the front of V1-Rs running
the 5 Star universal/cvd at Castle when they slap the boards.
The usual brinnell number (hardness measurement) for axle
shafts, dog bones and universals is approximately 30...Yokomo
used a brinnell number of 60 for their original axle shafts in the
GT-4 kits and they would snap off from just tapping boards...
I notice the same phenomenon with the 5 Star universals....

Which is lighter, the stock plastic pulleys or the Kawahara Aluminum pullets for the V-ONE R?

I did not weigh it myself, but a respectable driver from here told me that the aluminuim pulleys are slightly heavier... but in terms of transmittion, the aluminium ones are way more efficient then the stock plastic ones...

This might interest you too... I got to know that Team Kyosho have their own range of aluminium pulleys and they are known to have worked well with the V One R. Right now, if I'm not wrong, the whole of Japan is out of 18T the last time I enquired...

If you want to increase the efficiency of your drive train further, try the titanium front layshaft and 2 speed shaft from Square... of course, you can't do without the SP belt...

FYI, my Kawahara mid belt pulley (front) fell apart after two days of use. The ring which retains the belt on one side fell off and launched the belt.

Yah I had the same problem with that same pulley, so I shoe gooed the ring back on the pulley. No problems since then.

So can someone post ALL (I mean ALL) part numbers to convert the V-ONE R to the V-ONE RR. So far this is what I have:

VZ090 = Centax Clutch
VZ088 = Body Mount post
VZ083 = Rear Body Mount Parts
VZ082 = Front Body Mount and Wide bumber parts
VZ080 = Dogbones for the V-ONE RR Rear
VZ070 = Side Belt for Overdrive
? = 25T Overdrive Pulley
? = Transponder mount next to throttle servo
? = New mounting parts that replace the ball and cups to mount the shock on the Suspension A arms

Is there anything else I missed? Can someone give me the part numbers for the ones with a ? next to it as well. All info would be GREATLY appreciated.

The Kyosho V1RR comes with a completely new set of pulleys which are made from the graphite infused plastic. In my opinion this should transmit the power as efficiently as an aluminium without the weight. JMO.

I realised the bulk of the friction in the drive train comes from the rear diff pulley. Tried replacing it and tried the phantom rear pulley and it's not much of a difference.

Other than the rear composite pulley from kfactory, anyone tried others? Or am I the only one having this problem?

alloy pully is smoother than the stock plastic, but it wont last long.
