Thanks AMGRacer- Now I have some ideas to start with.

How are the limited slip diffs working out? Kawahra or Kyosho, which one is better? Are they for rubber or foam tire use, or both.

Hi guys,

We just updated our website with a ton of new hop-ups from Kawahara for the V1R. We also have more hop-ups coming end of next week including the V1R Negative diff. Check them out on our website, they are going really fast!

Thanks

I had my pilot shaft come loose a bit. It was enough to lock-up the clutch bell. This was during my test runs, I have since used blue loctite....

use two wisegrips to do the job. one holding the flywheel and another one hold the driver that for the clutch nut. use excessive force to fix the clutch nut.

Thanks for the advise Manticore..

What do you guys think of the Kawahara lower engine mounts in conjunction with the smaller diameter flywheel? According to them this would lower the engine 2.5mm. Would that make a big difference in handling??

its not only lower the engine, this will reduce flywheel weight and thus reduce rotation mass and you will have better throttle respond.

I am using this combo on my V1R but with a mugen centax.

I think I'll do the same thing....was that mugen clutch a direct replacement?? Did you have to modify anything?

there are a few things you need to go:

1/. make clearance for the clutch bell on the main chassis. just dremal to file on the area underneath the clutch bell to ensure the clutch bell spin freely. (you need to do this with kyosho clutch as well)
2/. you need to use kyosho clutch pinion especially the 2nd pinion as the diameter for the mugen pinion (2nd gear) is smaller.
3/. file the main chassis engine mount hole a bit longer to the left to ensure maximum spur/pinion coverage. AMG has it without making mod on the main chassis. may be I am using option chassis.

Thanks for the information....I have to wait for all the Kawahara hopups I ordered I hate to tear the car apart over and over...Now all I have to do is look for who sells the Mugen Axial Clutch the least $$.

Yep, it fits OK just a few notes. Like Manticore said the Mugen pinion 20-21-22 tooth 2nd gears actually are different in diameter by quite a bit whereas the Kyosho pinions gears are exactly the same size (or at least very close). You have to pay attention to gear mesh more.

Also I did not initally file the chassis holes to get the coverage, but what I did find that by not doing this my clutchbell was actually rubbing on the outside of the 2nd gear. So you actually do have to file the chassis about 1-2mm to make better clearance for the clutchbell - 2nd gear. It does not do any major damage to 2d gear it just wears a slight groove into it.

The Kyosho centax off the RR may be a better buy if the price is good as it presumably will fit with no mods, only has 3 flyweights for better response, and they are lightened.

Hey Manticore....(or anyone) I have read some of your posts all over this board and I can tell that you have the "wisdom" . A new purpose built track just opened close to my house. Can you tell me, (i know this could be hard) bassed on the pictures attached what kind of setup i should have? Mainly in gearing and front and rear differential selections.

This track is HUGE!!! They run 1/5 on this track.

Thanks in advance.

Manticore- You have another fan!!

got-speed- gear the car as high as humanly possible and watch out on the time you spend on full throttle... you don't want to keep your finger jammed down for more than 3-4 seconds otherwise you may over rev your engine on that size of a track!
