Haha! They couldn't...coz they're gone for quite sometime now...
Ok...technical now... some guys over at my track are using the LSD for the front... cause they were saying that it has the characteristics near to a one way when cornering and when you power off a corner, it locks up... You must understand that I run on a medium tight track... Sounds reasonable to me that's why I'm trying out this combination...
Comments?

Hi Guys I have some questions:

1. Will part FM352 the outdrives from the Fantom one way work with the V One R one way?

2. Will part FM315 the front bumper from the Fantom fit the V One R??

3. Does FM380 Fantom Centax clutch fit the V One R?? Are any mods required to make it fit??

Thanks!!

1/. no idea

2/. shouldnt work as different chassis width

3/. should work as the first batch of centax from Fantom was used on V1R.

No idea?! I am disappointed Manticore

So the centax fits fine with no mods?? Thats pretty cool. Would you recommend the Mugen centax over the Kyosho one as some people have suggested?

I use mugen centax on my V1R for two reasons:
1/. it is the best performance available on the market
2/. dont want to keep different centax system as I have one on my MTX2.

yes you can fit the mugen centax on V1R with slight modification on the main chassis. Just elong the engine mount hole on the main chassis to maximize alignment.

I dont know much about Kyosho CC as I have never run it but designwise, Mugen is much better then serpent one as it has 4 flying weight while serpent only has 3 fly weight.

Mugen CC is light and realiable. Kyosho CC has a cone shape fly weight which is made of alloy and it has the problem os wear out on both fly wheel and the weight.
