There was some debate about bodies and their different characteristics some time ago. Anyway, we've been running a Stratus 1 for about 9 months. Last Sunday we changed to a S60 Volvo and I like the results. I'd say it has less rear downforce and consequently a little more steering - just what we wanted.
Yep it is track related and grip related for sure. I have no idea how lillydale is for grip sorry

To give you an idea at Meakin Park when the grip was good we used 40 shore all around and fantom springs and the car was fast as hell. Now after the "resurface" all the grip has gone and we use 37 shore and the light blue springs.

When traction is good at Brendale the fantom springs are the go (Ric Bart was using these at the 2002 QLD championships). Other lower grip days have required me to use the light blues.

Also another thing which influences spring choice is driving style and whether you use a oneway. I prefer a car with good balance tending towards push, I a consistent but not blisteringly quick in any given lap.

I agree with this very much. The front end shape has a minor bearing on the handling, but my belief is the wing shape and size has a huge bearing. The position of the rear wing in relation to the rear wheels also makes a fair difference (see Crowd Pleazer for example)

The side plates for the wings I believe are intended to improve straight line stability some people are leaving them off to encourage the car to rotate quicker.

If so, I have always thought that sort of bowl shape couldn't be good for air flow, but, hey, JP should know a lot more than me.
When you pull the restricter out you will see. The raw carb is quite "square" and it lacks the nice bellmouth shape that is the best for airflow.

Some years ago when it was popular to put these "air pods" on your 1:1 cars a magaine did a dyno test to check them out. Invariably those pods with a bellmouth shape offered the highest performance gain.

Default From V1S to Trinity

To V1RR or Trinity owner,
Would you please advice me on why should I get V1RR instead of Trinity. I've being using V1S for about 3 months now and thinking of getting a new pro kit. I love my Kyosho very much but when I saw the reflex NT,I said to myself this should be the pro version for the V1S. So now I am confused.

Default The V one RR is the pro Version of the V One s

I would get the RR mainly because of the quality of parts. I have not broken any thing and i am in the boards quite often! also i put my car into a car tire at about 60mph and only destroyed the body! now that is solid!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't that V-One RR Evo, the same as the Japan Cup V-One RR or something? I saw the Japan Cup RR on like DinBall's RCMart or something. And correct me if I am wrong.

the japan cup V1RR is still the original V1RR version. EVO is a different car with some parts carried over from V1RR.

Nope they are different cars. The Japan Cup RR is a normal RR with some hopups. The EVO has a redesigned top deck and front end geometry.

The Trinity is not a Kyosho. They are similar not the same.
