Apparently you have not yet seen a Dennis Richey 9 port Nova MT12 Eagle run yet hehehehe. That is faster than the MSpeed MT12

Tools required & suggested

I'm just about to get myself a V1RR GT. (It's going thru customs, down under here).
I was hoping though prior to getting the kit, that i'd be able to get my tool box up to scratch.
Those of you who have the V1R already, are you able to quickly jot down the tools required and suggested. I.e. the size of the allen and nut drivers etc. I know all about the locktite etc.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Over and out...
P.S. I'll try and post some pics of the beast during construction.

I find the same I am not crazy about my RS12. Seems the powerband is too narrow and too far high in the RPM scale. I have never had any success with it so far.

Ahh....one thing, you might want to use glass sealant on the diff gaskets to stop them leaking.....best to smear the stuff on when the diffs are still new!!

you dont need that! just replace the 2.6mm self tapping screws with 3mm machine screw will help to stop leaking. the diff leak cuz you have the 2.6mm self tapping screw looses.

in fact, we should stay away from k factory stuff on V1R.R otherwise people will point their finger at your car and say its a reflex !!
