It's actually a Reflex with V-ONE R parts. I had a V-ONE R at the time and I ended up swapping out most of the Trinity parts for Kyosho. It's just better quality. Perfect fit and finish, and as durable as a MACK truck.

Judge the size of your track and get a shell that is practical rather than just the 'Look' of the car...Hope this helps....
Interesting article.

Question for you though, have you tried both these bodies, and if so did you feel a difference in the handling of that car?

Nice article... the author seemed pretty sure that those 3 bodies were the way to go. Well, I guess its obvious really. Not a huge mystery as to what bodies work, but that article explained it in pretty plain English, and that was good. I'm sure there's plenty of bodies to yet be fully race tested by the general racing community and many more slated to be released. Hopefully Protoform updates the Accord soon. I quite like the look of that body and I've heard it performs pretty well.

Does any company make foams mounted on black rims? They all seem to be mounted on white rims, well except Serpent.

Not yet, but it would be cool and hard to see when you smack the boards

I'm gonna get the Vectra. Looks solid and from what I'm hearing it sounds like it performs well too.

Yeah good point about smacking the boards. wait, u mean hard to see if your tire got chunked or something?

In fact, i tried both bodyshell and found the Vectra to be slightly better in terms of speed in a larger track as i think my car is quite well-balanced. Handling wise, cant really feel the difference...both are excellence...!!!

cheers........

I think you are just having some bad luck.
Well, maybe the Kyosho 15T is doing more work, being a first gear.
Having said that, we purchased a Venom 22T 2nd gear 'cos a friend was impressed with it's longevity. It hasn't done many miles yet, but it certainly does seem to be wearing very well.

Ive tried both.... and found the Vectra to be a little better for open tracks..... BUT after running the 300m I wouldnt turn back. It is by far the best body I have used.

If you ever want to see a difference in a body shell, about the only one i've seen that allows in the TVR tuscan speed 6. That is without a doubt the biggest pile of crap excuse for a body shell i've ever seen.

Perhaps that is the key... It's the cut angle that's the problem, not the depth of gears. I ran Kyosho pinions on the Mugen spurs, not vica verca.

That article is from Mike Q at The Starting Grid. Tekrsq dug that out about a year ago when the MTX2 people started asking how to setup the Centax.


Patelladragger you typed it all back in by hand? Ugh

Sorry wasn't here earlier or I would have point you the site so you wouldn't have to type so much.....maybe........... ok I would've.
