rjl is spot on correct. It is difficult to retap a new sized hole in the OS crankcases.

asd if you are asking why go get a new crankcase you must be extraordinarily wealthy!! Get a new case cause you have an otherwise working engine. You can also try filling the hole with devcon first and then redrilling and tapping it. Sounds like you will need LHS or parental help with that one tho.

What do you mean about the Ackerman?? I did not notice that it was different to the R version. What part is different??
Yeah I've been nervous about cleaning them, so I usually don't mess with them, but since I had the car apart, cleaning bearings, I figured I might ask.

The servo saver on my RR has a number 9 on it. The saver from my GRP kit, and the spares I had didn't have numbers stamped on them. When I compared the two, the spacing between the ball studs is a little farther apart on my older servo savers. I looked in the parts listing and to my surprise, I found part nos. FM 317 (11mm pitch), FM 317 B (10mm), and FM 317C (9mm, RR kit stock). My friend noticed I was complaining about a lack of steering in some of our tighter turns, and that my car wouldn't do really tight low speed circles (or donuts!), even with the EPA cranked all the way up on the radio. He said "what about the Ackerman"? I was thinking to myself, hmmm, I never felt the need to mess with any ackerman adjustment on my V-One R, so what's different here? I was surprised to discover this. It's great that there's more choices available, but it's one of those subtle changes to the RR that I'm finding- the hard way.

Wow thanks for that info!! I did not know that one..............

Yeah I know somebody who prefers the V1R saver on his Fantom and the Fantom saver on his V1R. I have never played with this setting before to be honest. My V1RR seems to have pretty good low speed steering however so I never really noticed. But getting turn-in on rubber is a little tough now you mention it.................

That's odd, FM317C is standard to Vone cars.

I don't have my old V-One R manual or parts listing anymore to double check... you could be right, and maybe somehow I got the 10mm pitch (317B). Do you know if FM 317 (11mm) has been available all along? It's not listed as an option on the setup sheets, but it's listed in the RR's part listing.

Newbie question... what is an ackerman? and which servo saver of the 3 is the one to get? FM 317, FM 317 B, or FM 317 C? I'm assuming the one with the most spacing?

Ackerman is the angle difference between 2 front wheels when you turn. The inner one should turn more because as your car goes around in a circle, the inner wheel needs to turn in a tighter arc than the outer wheel.

I don't know ponky, the off road guys are winning races with them all over the place. Check out the Trinity home page they are the importer for these engines. They were designed by the guys who left NovaRossi, I think. I've heard they make a ton of power, I think Radio Control Car Action or Nitro just reviewed the Sirio 0.21 and they have an engine dyno. The reviewer said it was the most powerful RC engine they have tested yet. See the Trinty page here.
