The stock diffs. I haven't started any upgrades yet. I figured I would run it until I have problems then upgrade the problem area. I know some of you guys have had this car a lot longer than I have though so I figured I could ask for tips and suggestions. I'm not good enough to be above advise from others.

do you think universals/cvd would be a good upgrade or just a waste?

also, what about sway bars, who uses them?

I use the kyosho option CVD. they are durable and inexpensive.

I have never used sway bars on my V1R. Since I have bought them long times ago, I will try it out later this week.

it will depend on your track,
your driving style and your setup
if u want more steering , put on the rear with the hard bar and u see u have alot of steering...
correct me if i am wrong

oh, and the harder the bar, the more it gives, like say you put the stiffest bar in rear, it will give you more steering than the medium, etc..

thanks for your input.

I race on an open, vey high traction track (the track which just held the 1/8 world titles) and a smaller basket ball court track.

This is one of the tracks i race at - the recent world titles track
