i had a fuel filter on my v-one r, and found that fuel wasnt getting to the motor very well (irregular idle etc), as soon as i pulled it off it was ok.

dont use it, theres no need, the one in the tank is enough

Finished building up my 2nd V-One R Finally! Now it's time to put it on the track. Can't wait to try out the new RB X-12 5 port turbo engine! Here's a pic of my 2 V-One R's now!

Hey adulmundo, that set-up is also with front and rear black sway bars. The track I have this set-up for is for a extremly high traction big track. If I were to run Dbl. purple front tires, the car will traction roll very easy. That is why the Jaco Red fronts. Hope this helps.

Think someone asked that way before... try the MTX dog bone... slightly longer... put it on and forget about the O rings... Save the money on the CVD for some other hop ups...

Yes this way works too. In fact before the CVD's were available for sale around here, I was using MTX-2 Dogbones. Don't use the O rings if you do this, and you may also have to widen the front slightly like a couple of millimeters or so to make them fit nice but not too snug.

Unfortunatley I am a buying freak, and I couldn't resist buying the CVD's when they came out since they looked soooooo cool (like that kid in a candystore feeling ewwwww ahhhh!)

try to narrow the front a bit and that will solve the problem without spending a cent on it.

Upon narrowing, you could try the 2mm offset wheels...

kyosho has come out so many goodies from the latest hobby show.

I am waiting for the rear body support for Lola body, front "hand shake" sway bar and the wide bumper. Anybody knows when they will be available?
