i've only ever seen one rear lay shaft replaced (stock)... The only reason for that was it had done so many miles it literally wore out.

Default rear diff.....

Is the Negative Diff from kawahara also known as the LSD?
So, they are self-adj. ?
Is running Solid axle in the rear is better than LSD or normal diff with 100K grease? Which is the best combination if Front One-way is used?

They have a lot of differential action at low speed, but at higher speeds it stiffens up.

Default V one R vs V one RR

Hi1 I'm a newbie to gas powered racing and recently bought a used v one r. I ran it a few times and raced once and am satisfied with it. My buddy also wants to get into gas powered rc racing and has offered to buy my car. There's a new v one rr at my lhs that seems to be begging me to take it home. My question is: Is it worth it to upgrade to the v one rr, if it can be called an upgrade? What are the basic differences between both cars? I run on a small to medium sized cement track with low to medium bite. What tires should I use? And what general set-uo?

I know these topics must have been discussed earlier in this thread but please to ask me to search for them. I really don't have the time to go over 5000+ posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

only about 10-15 pages back there was a listing of all the differences between the kits. I will list what I can remember:


RR upgrades:
Centax clutch
floating body mount/ different rear end
low-friction belts
wide front bumper
blade-style front sway bar
190mm reinforced rear dogbones
different front shock tower
25T side pulley for overdrive


I'm certain there is something else i'm leaving out...

Default Worth the upgrade?

Thanks for the info. But would it be worth it to upgrade to the RR?

I dunno that's totally your call. If you're new and you already have a car my advice would be to keep it and learn how to set it up and drive it well before buying anything new. None of the upgrades that are on the RR are as important as practice time for the newer driver.

That was one of the mistakes I made when I first started - buying too many different cars instead of just focusing, practicing, and learning on one.
