Thanks to ESHAM for this pic:



Looks darned low.

However I think my Kawahara engine mounts are a little lower. Need to check when the kit arrives (if?!).

Do you really think it will be down at the track this weekend?
No, afraid not. I was hoping to do the trip to Qld (my home state) earlier in the year - sort of combining pleasure with pleasure. It'll have to wait - drat.

Who's running from this forum?

Yeah I'm running Qld's have to wait and see about the National. Brendale Track is only 5 mins from home and 2 min from work, so I'd say more than likely nats as well.

I recently had a problem even with the 3mm screws and have substituted 3mm x 10mm machine screws. If you intend to use machine screws, you will need to drill out the 2mm holes to 2.5mm otherwise there is a risk of distorting the plastic which may cause the gears to bind. Only use a very sharp drill for this - the tolerances using machine screws are much tighter.
I now use Permatex non hardening gasket goo to seal the diff - silicone is too "squirmey" IMHO and also seems to be soluable in the diff oil.

As for what oils to use, I'm gonna guess for you.
7K in the rear and 30K in the front should be a fair "all-rounder" - there will be plenty of opinions on this one.
I have no idea what oils come in the kit but if you follow their instrustions that'd be fine too.
Thanks, Taylor. I think this is the first time anyone has ever responded to any of my questions on this thread.

I will give your recommendations a go. Thanks.

Cheers

Just built my V1RR. Whats the top ten hop up parts for this car?

The drive pulleys are plastic. Is there a metal set I can get?

Also what about the clutch in the 2 speed gearbox? This is also plastic and looks like it needs to be stronger.

Geeez . . . you must be agriphobic, finchy.
Seems the only time you spend not on your ass is when you grab your lunch box and run to the car.
Just joking, now.

Your welcome - and feel free to yell a bit if you get ignored.
While I think of it, the diff case might be not perfectly flat on it's mounting surface. Place a piece of fine sandpaper (320 grit) on a piece of glass and flatten this area.

I'm a bit over hop up's, but anything that stiffens up the area between the top plate and the rear end is probably good - a graphite "Y" brace and a brace under the exhaust. Some lightened drive train bits are good - depends how far you want to go. Having said that, we do have lots of shiny things but some of them exhibit a dubious return on investment.
But IMHO, forget the alloy pulleys - they can tend to sharpen themselves and they're heavy.
I think you'll find the 2 speed clutch is just fine.

Default PUTTING CLAY IN DIFFERENTIAL

Someone told me a technique instead of hard oil, you can put modelling clay in the front differential to tighten it. Is this effective and advisable? Need your thoughts please. tks.
