replacement parts will be available as spare parts just like the kawahara clutch type 2speed for MTX2.

I have been thinking about the rear grip issue a bit more. The guy with the good rear grip has a V One S which I think comes with dry diffs. So as Novarossi and Manticore have suggested it probably is because the rear diff is too stiff. I went with the kit suggestions and put 50% 50000 and 50% 500 in the diff and filled it totally up. It feels pretty much the same as my old HPI used to feel when it had 30000 in it so I guess it is somewhere in that range.

So the suggestion on a unprepared parking lot style track is 5000-10000 wt? Or how about even empty + some lube?

I am also wondering whether the Kyosho LSD would be too severe for low grip surfaces? Perhaps using the active diff in the rear and setting it very open would be better? That way it could be tightened back up to 30000wt when I go back to the high grip track. The standard Kyosho setup worked very nicely for me on that high grip track.

Go 5000wt rear and 10,000wt front.

BTW,

I found this quote from another forum :

Quote:
Ok here it is-
A brand called General Silicon or GS are making a "version" of the V-one-R. GS make the V-one-R's for kyosho and they will be making one for Neo or DSI whoever it is. It will be much cheaper than the V-one-R. It will be realesed early 2002. When i have more info i'll post it.
Now we have the Trinity, Kyosho and another ????????

OK pulled open the rear diff and..... empty

I did not do the 3mm screw mod so I lost all the fluid Would having a dry rear diff lose you rear traction (it was not totally dry....)

I have noticed that the car has gone from understeer to neutral through the slower corners (due to my diff oil ejecting ) I am guessing that having a high weight in the front (50000) and being zero in the rear may be inducing off power oversteer and on power oversteer. Any thoughts??

GS is going to release a new nitro sedan, but it doesn't look like V1R.

ive seen spy shots, and have spoken to the guy who imports them here in OZ and it looks more towards a v-one s and neo put together. gs dont make cars for kyosho, its the other way around, Kyosho are building the cars for GS, but dont get excited and expect cheap parts as most of the car parts will be ISO std so hardly any parts will fit v-one r or other.

amgracer, i use 30k in front and 10k in rear. its perfect for all-round use.
