Also most K Factory parts are not required in that they are just alloy replacements for the original part. Kawahara mostly goes the further step.

Mayby it is because I do not like the Reflex
I am also diehard anti-RNT !!

but the RNT doesnt have k factory rear solid axle !

Can somebody explain to me what the heck is going on with V1R prices! I paid a pretty penny when I bought my voner last year, but now people can't give them away? I've seen people selling 300 dollars worth of tricked out voner for 170 bucks. I was going to get an RR, but I just ran across a brand new VoneR with RB turbo engine and X12 pipe and header for $255!

WTF? I put the reflex up on ebay roller only and put a buy it now for 200 and it sold in less than 3 hours.


There's a voner roller with centax sitting on ebay right now for 100 dollars! What the heck is going on?

I dont. I use button head screw for this purpose since day one since you may use a bigger allen key. If you need to use set screw on this as per the manual, you need a good allen wrench to ensure the job well done.

there should have two holes on the left bulkhead where you could access the two screws which hold the brake pad on the right bulk head. when you have removed the pads, the small piston may be taken out and your brake lever can be unlocked.

if you cannot do this, you just need to dissemble the rear end and but to make sure you have released the small brake piston on the right bulkhead.

Thumbs up V1R durability - impressive

I had a bad race day yesterday - 2 mishaps in both heats put me in the b main. I was impatient lapping a guy at the end of the str8 and got ran smack head on into the pipe (very unforgiving pipe) at the end of the str8. Shock end rod popped off, servo saver popped off - nothing broken, no damage, car back together in 3 minutes. Second heat I flamed out cause the friggin in-line pipe! came loose and my car wouldn't idle while they fixed the AMB system and I was off the stand when it started.

B main for me.

B main, v1r was so hooked I never started NTC3 after practice. I put 4 laps on everyone. Took a full speed smack from a serpent driver, spun my car around, his car broke several pieces, my v1r heads goes on to set a b main time that put me 2nd fastest all day! Anybody want to buy a NTC3
