ok, i did some research and i might get a kawahara flywheel and bumper, they are a lot lighter. I need to lower the car's weight, to get better power to weight ratio, also with a lighter flywheel i will get a little more revs out of the engine

c888, if you can afford the Evolution kit,
I would start there. Getting the front servo down really helped me cut my lap times down. Plus the longer front suspension improved handling. It was like night & day.

Think of it this way... if you're going to spend $55 for the bumper and flywheel, save about $80-$90 bucks more and get yourself a V-One makeover. Worry about the weight later. Handling and controllable power is more important and you already have the power.

I can't afford it, Plus i got lots of RR spare parts. Plus i'm getting the handling down at the track, the only problem is i need a body with 4 holes instead of three, that way i have more downforce.

I got so much power that i'm only pushing the motor at 60-70% of it's full potential, it's crazy fast.

c888, I here ya man. But I thought the same thing, and after I converted my car to the evo, I took the extra chassis and all my spares and I built me another V-One RR. All I needed were some bearings which I bought on eBay for $12. Now I have an extra car build for our local 2hr-40min endurance races. Just an idea for ya.

I don't understand the 3 hole vs. 4 hole body? Please explain.

c888, you should check out what the guys are discussing in the FW-05R thread.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=22081

jeffreylin discusses the different body handling charateristics. Maybe this will help you choose a body to suite your driving style.

And thanks for your help and support lately! i've 90% learnt all i need to know about diff oil the 10% left over is full schematic reasons
Cheers
Well... you're on the righ track, but what I said was: with more diff action, you'll have less FORWARD traction (the car will rotate more). Again, this should be adjusted, according to the traction & layout of the given track.
Keep Wrenchin'

Because you used the word "damper", I would think he was talking about the shock. Maybe, he's referring to the ball stud screwed into suspension arm, that the shock connects to, OR the ball end (the plastic connector screwed onto the end of the shock). Either way, I can't see why he wouldn't have those parts. They're very cheap!

good idea, maybe when i get some money i'll do that. I don't have that many spare parts, just yesterday i broke the shaft that the dogbone slides into, it didn't just break, it shattered into pieces.

Damn, my RBv12 is fast as hell, i had some compression problems so I tightened the glow plug, and I was dead even with an 1/8 scale on the straight, but then the turn came up and i was going too fast and crashed. I'm still at about 160 degrees, and we keep leaning it and it runs faster and keeps cool

the 3 hole vs. 4 hole thing is when i got my bodies for the car they were cut out for a different car, so one of my mounting locations is a big gap because it is a window, so I can only mount it on 3 holes. The car rides good as hell but the back it has no downforce because of no 4th hole so I can't go fast because it spins out.

Yes, everybody told me to get another body, but it is easier said than done, they work and I don't. And it's not because i'm not looking for work, I do look for work, it's just nobody is hiring me. So i'm really on a tight budget.

Beware of "really cheap" deals! get as much info about the car, as possible. Also, look over the car carefully and get the manual. Good Luck!

Bman! use the SP or Special Belts. Last for a really long time. If you want to go with a freer belt, try the Kfactory (G4) yellow belts. I haven't tried them yet, since my SP belts take a beating.
