actually the rear dogbone breaks when the suspension compress at an angle and when you dont have seat the dogbone properly.

He's just a little nervous is all - probably in the karsey again, right now - you know how he's been lately.
He's got the Oz Nat's coming up next weekend and is desperately trying to position himself as the underdog . . I think it's workin' too

AMG!!! THANKS man - I think you've pinpointed my problem. I don't have any plastic spacers on my one-way outdrives! lol. I'm going to check it out.

I've had the problems with the dogbones when I've got the wheels at near full-turn and I hit or get hit by something - not major high-speed hit. In the main I was going around a lapper in a slow corner, I know he's got big engine power and didn't get far enough in front of him before the next corner, I turn sharply into the next corner and he tags me sending me into the pipe with my wheels turned, dog-bone gets stuck coming out of it's slot in the hub effectively locking my wheels at full turn. I'm sure the problem is with my front setup as I only ever have dogbone problems in the front - and it's probably the one-way outdrives.


Kevin on the integy they might sell more than one chassis like they do with universals. I bought the one that was 7075 and it didn't come with engine mounts or screws so it may not be the same one you have. Take a pic of yours and I can tell you. The one I have was a few tenths heavier than the stock so I haven't installed it.

Yeah I am just curious since I give my car a regular pounding and never lose them (or break them dtm!!!) But whenever you stuff (or get stuffed!!) the car into a board or pipe I guess there is a chance you can pop one out. Mine are just so tightly wedged in there, there is probably less than 1mm of play. Take a look in the V1RR manual and it will show you the plastic spacers I am talking about. I only know about them cause I forgot them as well

My main gripe against universals is that they tend to be weaker than dogbones at the universal end. In fact on other cars (never had them on V1R) I break the universals and leave the rest of the suspension intact!! Of course the V1R unis may be stronger.

I know the Kyosho Unis are pricey but they are very tough and outlast all the others I have tried.
Do not use front bones in the rear they will bind and interfere with suspension travel.
Sorry if I seemed a bit snakey but I have at least one a week.
" It just broke." or "It just fell out"
And it's bloody raining.

Just get the system. You can make a smaller flat board out of a bigger flat board And the decal really is just for width measurements so dont bother. I just use a piece of MDF cut to size.

Where's the best place to get spare parts online? The only place that looks reputable that i can find is Towerhobbies; the other sites ive found look sketchy.
