ohh, ok
it has a throttle servo "bumper", grphite infused pullies (i think),
thinner elts that give more performance but has a shorter life, three types of bumpers, one foam, one plastic(for practicing) and a small plastic bumper for racing, the gt has rubber tyres and a stratus body, the normal v one rr has foams and a lola body,
the rear floating body mount produces more downforce and the list goes on and on and on and on
lol
hope this helps

Thanks, the Kyosho website does not show that there are two versions, the GT and the normal version of the V1rr. Do you know if both versions have a one way front? I thought one way front diffs were not good for rubber, only foam? Anyways, what version of the car do you have?

one-way diffs are are ok for rubber too if you pay close attention to your tweak and setup and you are accustomed to driving with a one-way. With foams it's much easier to drive with one-way, and much easier to setup. With rubber and a one-way and a high-powered engine you better know intimately what setup changes are needed to get the handling you're after.

The rubber tyre version has standard drive ratio, the foam version has the front overdrive. This is the way to go if you intend running foams.

Standard drive ratio as in 27 tooth front pully and no one way

the RRGT , If I am wrong please correct, Has 25 tooth front pully, one way front differential and foam tires, and some other nice stuff.

I myself if I didnt have a V one R already, would take a good look at the mugen even if it isnt going to come out for a wile, I have been spanked at the track by some mtx2's. But in my opinion you could have the "BEST" car on the market and still come in last if you can't drive the damn thing

Cool, look forward to hearing from y'all! The RD Logics Race at Revelation should be fun, come by and visit.

Yeah the original car and the GRP versions come with a 27 tooth pulley, and the RR's got a 25 and smaller belt. RR's swaybars are different all around. Nicer pipe mount, different shaped tank lid, better clutch (old clutch bells won't fit though), amongst other things. I also noticed in the setup and parts sheets it looks like more gears are also available.

On the Kyosho site there is no mention of a GT version and a normal version of the V1RR... Just seems to be one version with the Stratus body.

What classes are run at your local track? Do they run slicks or foam? Is there a Kyosho or Mugen shop in your area? These are important aspects when deciding on a race car. If Joe Blow is winning with XY brand because he was given one will not always mean that that brand is best. It just means that Joe was good enough to get one special deal. It's up to you to decide on the car you purchase, this is the voner thread and I know that if you get a voner you will have a place to come for advice.
On a side note, I believe that Josh Cyrul will be an entrant in the Oz Nats, this information from the local agent.

Hey all this talk about knocking on my door's making me a little nervous...

asd: you just need a pack that stacks two batts on top of three. I think "hump" pack refers to only one battery on top. The one you need is very standard, fits a lot of offroad trucks... run time depends on a lot of variables (make sure you're not overdriving your servos, you'll hear them straining at full throw).
