Well I cant answer that but I think it has some life yet.

Let me tell you a story. I guy I know owned a NTC3 and won last year championship with it in fact. Decided he needed a new car and got the "sheepmobile" MTX3 (everyone over here went to them) Been driving it for a few months and has done very poorly, in fact he is now getting out of RC since he is doing so badly. Now he regrets selling the NTC3.

The way I see it you have to ask yourself am I losing due to the car. 99% of people will not be with a V1R. However if you want a brand new one for the sake of it go right ahead!

I totally agree.... I was one of the first people to jump on the Sheepmobile late last year.... but I had been about to "refresh" my v-one r.... and decided to try the new mugen....

not unhappy with my descision.... added up the costs and it was actually cheeper for me to get the mugen....

But if your happy with the car you have.... I dont see a real need to jump ships....

Its 80% driver anyway

Well all I can say is that the other day on Enneti 40s I was lapping VERY quickly with that combo. Depends a lot on your driving style etc. I think from the blues up to the golds are where you need to be. Golds tend to be a little hard for my liking and i find it hard to keep the wheels on the apex. You really need to be on the apex at brendale.

Default servo spacers

jeremy, you know I'm like a horder and I never throw any thing out I think they are in my spares box for the NTC3. If not I'm sure I can dig some up from some were. Front way on the RR is excellent compared to the tiny thng on the tc3. Have built the front end already. Just have to get some rubber cement tommorrow for the brake pads, or do you have any other suggestion on glue for the pads.

this may be true BUT!, everyone at the track that i race at (moorebank) who shifted from brand X to the mtx3 has improved thier times! personally i've improved my times by about2.5 seconds, best laptime AND average laptime.

rubber cement is the right stuff. quick fix and safe to use. but you need to use a vise to hold the thing together for a while after you put them together.

Yeah . . but . . reading recent posts in other threads, how much of this "improvement" is down to the recent "revitilisation" of the Moorebank track surface?
How about you take that V-one-R out of mothballs and give us an update.

What do you think of the Enneti's, AMG?
A couple of the guys down here have tried them and reckon they couldn't get them up to temp. or something.

Getting on temp a foam, huh!

I used Enetti during the last 1.5 years and therefore seemed a disadvantage getting only 35/40 and 45 hardness I need to say that is straighter and more strict to the shore ratings that put on the box.

Used in the past ellegis and Microsystems and switched to those tyre on my 200mm touring and on my MRX3.

Like those tyres a lot. In fact, two weeks ago bought 50 complete sets of tyres for my 200mm car on assorted hardness (enough for half season). Probably at first times the tyre shouldn't like (I know, the 40 from enetti is quite different to the Ellegi ones and grips on a different way).

Yes . . . haven't used Enetti's so it's difficult to comment.
For the last few months we have been using Active tyres - I like them a lot. They are very consistant in both wear and grip - similar to Zac's but with a stiffer rim.
As I understand it, Enetti use Japanese rubber for rear's and GRP for the fronts or something - not sure. I believe the 40's were the issue, here. Our local guys stopped using the fronts but were happy with the rears . . . though it might be the other way around.

What's your opinion on the Enetti's compared to Zac's or Active. ?
