Warning to all who are looking at extreme lightening options.
I was an avid weight reduction so to speak for a time. I have a V1R using a Sirio S12-TUP Engine.

I got those 3Racing Hardened Aluminum Shafts (middle and rear). I was under the impression that this will lighten the drivetrain and resultingly will make the car faster.

It was indeed faster but the middle aluminum shaft broke!!!
Replaced it back with the stock shaft. Then I raced.

Got Top Qualifyer and was 1st in both 1st and 2nd final heat (We din't have enough people to be pit crew). In the last heat, I had it bagged! I was a lap ahead. However, silly me, trying to still beat my best time, I pushed really hard.

to my surprise, in the straight-away, the rear aluminim Shaft broke and of course DNF the last finals heat. Landed 2nd.

Realized that stock shafts are heavier but stronger - able to withstand the revs and rpm of a strong Sirio motor.

Thanks once again TRAJ

Just one last question,

I have 2 offers from 2 different shops for the FW05S.

Which , in your opinion would be more of a bargain?

i`ll quote in AUD$ to make it easier for you.



1) About AUD$545.00 which includes :1 controller ( engine`s non- pull start )

2) About AUD$480.00 which includes : 1 controller
: 1 Fuel ( engine`s pull start)

Which model of engine, i`m not sure at all.

Which would be a better choice? or should i find out the model of engine before i make my decision?

Thanks for your help again.

Cheers!!

they may be light,but they are not the best thing to run up front, little on the weak side if you ask me, good to go in the rear but I'll think you might want something with a little more meat on them up front.

The main difference between a V one R and a V one RR is that the V one RR has the rear floating body mounts similar to 1/8 scale cars and also has the 3D clutch system which is better than the V one R body mounts and clutch

As to is it worth trading it depends on what the car has

The pro 4 is a nice car

Will have to differ in opinion. I tried both in the spirit of trying to lighten up the drivetrain...guess what...I broke both rear and front shafts...I use a Sirio .12 5 ports engine. Went back to stock.

Default Help unstanding what there item do

First is the motor mount question:
Stock motor mount vs 3Racing Engine Mount 3mm Screw Hole or 3Racing Engine Mount 4mm Screw Hole {What is the difference of the screw holes?

Next is the offset:

3Racing Front Swing Shaft (0mm Offset) vs 3Racing Rear Swing Shaft (+2mm Offset)
Does the offset affect how wide the wheel base is?

Last is the 3Racing Fast Gear Convention Kit

Including
1 x KV-027 Pulley Spacer
2 x KV029 Aluminum Pulley 24T
1 x KV-033 M3 384 Belt (128T) and
1 x KV-034 M3 198 Belt (66T)
What are the pros vs the Cons of this convention kit? Will is inprove the speed of the EVO for big tracks Likethis track Which we have here is FL[IMG]SUNSHINE BANDITS[/IMG]

If I'm not mistaken, the 4 mm screw hole allows you to use a bigger M4 screw for engine mounting. The M3 screws are easier to strip.

Top speed will increase when you use the belt conversion kit. It changes the internal ratio from 2.52 (48/19) to 2 (48/24). But the bottom end will suffer a little becasue of this. On a big track, you may want to use this conversion if you're required to use small tires like 57 or 58 mm.

What will it do to the gear ratio on a EVO with the 0.8 gear spacing? I'm use 21/61 for 1st and 27/55 for 2nd.

better stick with the regular steel shafts that came with the kit...it's more durable especially when you are using a very powerful engine like sirio. as for my experience with the regular steel shats, i bent one while i was running my v-one r with a rbx12 5 ports turbo tuned by rody engine....had to replace it since the gears were misaligned...
