AMGracer that turret looks a bit more like the goods have you tried this one out? I think I might just get one in case of emergency, and might as well try it out see if it makes any difference. Thanks for your help once again

OK tuning guide for the V1R.

1. First up get the engine tuned. I wont go into this much here, but if the engine tune is wrong then nothing else will help.

2. Get a centax clutch. Adjust it like this. Set the endfloat to be 0.3mm (after much experiment I find this to be the best) and then adjust the clutch to engage as high as you possibly can in the RPM range without the rear tires breaking loose. This is a very misunderstood setting. For a higher grip track you really want the clutch set ultra high for maximum punch.

3. Start with the stock gearing if you are not sure. Run it on the track. Ultimately you want the top end of 2nd gear to top out right at the end of the straight. If you have RPM left go down on the 2nd gear pinion. Make it so that you top out right at the end of the longest straight. When you have that pinion right go 3-4 teeth down on 1st gear.

4. Set the 2 speed shift point. Tighten it up so that it does not shift into 2nd. Then slowly unwind it so it just shifts. You want the shift to be just as the car starts to slow down at the top end of 2nd gear.

If you do all the above your car will be an absolute rocket in a straight line.

Yes Harmony. Man these guys have saved me hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

I have probably enough spares to make a brand new car. In the last 6 months I have only used a few spur gears from rock damage and some pulleys. This car is tough.

Yes it is. I miss my K car. I've already used more spares on the mtx3 than I did all of last year on the K car. I snapped 2 wheel axles in half in 2 consecutive runs (running solid rear) yesterday. No touchy board, just snapped on power. I like to run my lola against the 235's and I KNOW now I want my K car back. The mugen is so light the 235's boyz get rough with me and I go airborne everytime!

Default Siro Motor?

I know this is a V one R thread but I thought that I might as well ask the most intellegant people on this site. But has any one run a Siro motor with there V one R?? or RR I was just looking at some alternate engines to either Novarossi or RB I see they have a Siro V one RR combo deal in Japan so I know Kyosho wouldnt see it as a package deal if they thought the motor wasnt any good.
Any thoughts?

I wuld perfer to opt for ABC piston rather than AAC piston......and it seems the conrod for the engine wears out quite fast.......but on the whole its a pretty decent engine after running in.......I blew my conrod after running in.....no problems after replacing it....

Anybody knows the difference when I changed from one-way to differential gear for the front without replacing the front side pulley(original 25 T) for RR........V1-R is 27 T for differential gear.
