Actually it is the Limited Slip Diff. It comes with a different set of gears using the same diff case as the original, and it uses a special oil for the LSD.

I have just heard that we are going to have this LSD available here in a few days time and it would be cost that much.

Has anyone tried to put a 4 stroke in a VoneR yet? I've been looking for a "project" and I might try this one. I've been thinking about buying a VoneR and want to do something different. A buddy put a OS 4 stroke in an Impulse and it is awesome. He had to do some mods like a MTX2 tranny, Ofna clutch system, and a few others, but it is VERY nice.

I would rather to put a 4 stroke on a tamiya. V1R is a race type touring car and it will be a waste to do so. Just a though!

active diff is actually adjustable diff.

LSD is limited slip diff. This diff is torque sensing. so it should be called as Torsen LSD.

Hey Anthony, how's it going?!?! I wouldn't own a Tamiya if someone gave me the factory. I do not like them at all. In fact, I put them in the league with Tyco and Radio Shack cars. Anyway, I know the Vone R is a race type car, but so is the Impulse. You should see the thing run, it's very impressive. I doesn't have quite the launch of a 2 stroke, but it's just as fast on the top end and sounds AWESOME. It does have gobs of low end torque, too much for a touring car really, but you can take care of some of that with the clutch. I guess it would better be suited for an offroad truck, but I don't want to build a truck. I'm looking for another car project, and thought I'd ask.

Later.

Not sure yet. I still love my MTX-2. I helped a friend build his VoneR a couple of weeks ago. I've been "looking" at it for some time now, but couldn't decide if I should take the chance on getting one. But after seeing his run, I've decided I REALLY like this car. Then after seeing the 4 stroke Impulse run, I wondered if it would be possible to combine the 4 stroke with the Vone R. I think I'm still gonna get the VoneR even if I can't convert it, but still playing with different ideas.

The car, as you probably already seen, is already great stock! If you were to buy hop ups, there are some that I would HIGHLY recommend. First would be CVD's, especially for the front. I would probably get rear graphite shock towers as well. Maybe the aluminum hex hubs too. Other than that, if you wdon't buy anything else you should be fine. The car is great box stock and doesn't need alot to hop it up. I should know since I have oh so many hop ups on it. Here is my list of hop ups so far:

Square 4 mm chassis
5 Star Graphite Radio Tray
Square front graphite shock towers
Square rear graphite shock towers
5 Star CVD's in the front
5 Star Middle Shaft
5 Star Muffler Stay
5 Star Brake drum thingy (it's aluminum and it looks pretty cool)
GPM Rear Delrin Knuckles (don't get the front ones they suck, but they rears are pretty strong and haven't broke)
5 Star titanium hinge pins front and rear
Square aluminum hex hubs
Replaced the stock bearings at the wheels with Dynamite red sealed ones those are 10x15 and 6x12 bearings, 4 each all around. The stock ones all broke.
Square motor mounts that are finned
Kyosho Limited Slip Differential in the rear
I think that's it (hopefully)

SOme of this stuff is overkill and I'm pretty much done with hopping up.
