Never try it but it should work the floating rear end should go well on it for Gas tourer.

That's his comments anyway. I'll still be keen to test the EVO as soon as it arrives on my doorstep. Catch up with you later AMG.
Ohh yes though I do know this guy loves to have A LOT of adjustable things anyway
Why dont you just get a V one S I hear that it drives just as well as a V one R
I must say I couldnt feel any major differences in the floating rear mounts and the standard rear end on a tourer. Maybe on a can am body there would be a bigger difference.

The biggest difference between the standard VoneR-VoneS rear end and the VoneRR floating rear end isn't the position of the body mounts, but the angle of the shocks (lay down more with the VoneRR mounts)

On my cars I found that the car had both better traction coming out of tight corners and rotated better entering corners, and I tried the rear mount on both my VoneS and my VoneRR

Yea..I think so too.. I raise the question as i I haven't experience running a car with that item on it. And wonder what this item can do for me.. I still satisfied with the standard rear floating.

The only problem that I have found with the floating pod is that you can only get so much down travel with the arms.

I personally run the floating rear end. Just wanted to see what others though of the FRE. I have also run a V1S and I don't think the floating rear end would be tangible an that car. The S is pretty good straight out of the box with a 2 speed. TBR I have just bought a very cheap V 1 S from somebody down at the track. Pretty good deal, put it this way for less than the price of a new 2 speed I got a whole car with a box of spares. But I won't be going back to Gas Touring. Might do some modifactions to it and see what donk I can shoe horn in there. See ya on Sunday or maybe Saturday.

Yep, we have the second round of the VORTEC inter-club challenge coming up at Castlemaine on Sunday.
These are always good events. VORTEC runs four classes and there are six clubs involved. The basic principal is that each club sends the top three points scorers in each class to compete at these four events during the year.
So, on Sunday, there will be 72 drivers looking to earn points for their club towards the VORTEC shield that'll be awarded at the end of the year.
It'll be great fun, as these VORTEC events always are.
Actually, the competition is quite hot - might be luckey to get in the final.

You guys should get a VORTEC thing going in Qld. I've been trying to convince the NSW guys to do the same thing - Now THAT really would be good.

That sounds really cool I think the idea was talked about getting the guys from Murwillimbah club to come up to our track for a State of Origin type thing. But that idea quickly fizzled out. Yeah I would like to try and organise something like VORTEC sound like a heap of fun.

Do you think you would have some clubs that would be interested?
Our VORTEC runs on the KISS principal.

Since you are racing for your club, and not so much just for yourself, the atmosphere of these events is quite different to an IFMAR one - friendly rivalry and lots of team spirit stuff.

Just a FYI on the Kyosho pinions. I bought a few sets recently and noticed that they looked different than my old ones. They have the same dull grey appearance that the hard annodised mugen items have. Also I ran around 10 tanks on them already with no visible scarring. I suspect Kyosho has started to hard annodise the pinions now.
