Thanks for the info. I'll probably get the Kyosho one.

Asd the flanged bearings are for the side belt tentioner, refer to your instructions. I've probably built 100 or more cars now and still follow them, they are very important, the instructions that is, if your vonerrrrrrr is built as per the instructions it will work very well, if your car is built the way you think it should be built it will not work. I have a little hobby shop in OZ and none of my costomers have cars that don't work, get help!!!!! We could probable solve your problems very quickly if we could see what you have done.
When I assemble a kit I use digital verniers, when the instructions indicate an aproximate measurement my car starts within .03mm of that aproximate measurement.
I can't help myself, today I had a really good race with some of Oz's best tallent, I set the fastest lap of the day.

Lots more stress on the drive train on a 1/8 car. They aren't breaking in crashes but under acceleration. Kawahara has an answer, but not easy to find. I guess we're getting off topic..

hey everyone, i used threadlock to hold the cap screw into place, the one that holds the thrust bearing, because it kept vibrating loose
anyhow, guess what!
i finished breaking in my engine at around 1:00p.m.
and then at around 2:30p.m. went for a race at a club, man, does this biatch go fast or what!, i qualified 3rd! and finished 2nd! the guy in first place had an accident in the 20 minute A main which brought 2nd place to first, and me from 3rd to second, i felt very comfotabe with the stock setup, i had no crashes or any problems, and i was using a stick acoms techniplus 2 channel am radio!lol
anyhow, i fell that the v one rr is quite a bit heavier than most other cars, how can i solve this problem and what is the most vital hop-up u guys recommend for performance?
again, thxs in advance

How are you guys setting your ride heights with foam tires to account for tire wear during the main. I usually set my ride height between 4-5mm, but I don't want to be dragging the chassis by the end of the main.

I try to finish with 3-4mm, during a long final I may need to start at 6.5mm rear 5-6mm front.

You need to make some judgment during the heats as to the expected tyre wear.
For the half hour final yesterday, we started at F/R 5.mm/5.5mm and finished at F/R 4mm/4.5mm.
A bit of a miscalculation on my part - had expected to lose more than 1mm
