i agree with you...better stick with steel shafts that came with the kit...it's more durable... your car may not be light (duh!!! just a few grams off) but you are able to finish the race without problems...

as for my experience...it's worth getting the v-one rr than the r. the rr comes with a centax clutch which is easier to tune compared to the regular clutch. also, the rr has floating body mounts similar to 1/8 on road kits as mentioned earlier TRAJ. but be careful not to be hit hard on the rear ends since the floating mounts break....

With the stock internal pulleys (2.52 internal ratio), your FDR is 7.32 for 21/61 and 5.13 for 27/55.

Changing to the 3 Racing fast gear conversion kit, your FDR will change to 5.81 for 21/61 and 4.07 for 27/55 ! That will surely gear you to the moon and give you pretty lowsy acceleration.

Changing to 20/61 will give you 6.1. Still low and would make your bottom end sluggish I think. I believe this fast gear conversion pulley set was made for the older 1.0 gearing. I believe Kyosho made a 15T pinion somewhere and pairing it with 49T 1st gear spur, you get 6.53 for the 1st gear. Pretty decent. For the 2nd gear, you can use 20/44 combo which will give you 4.4 FDR and that should already take you to the biggest of tracks.

Default Evo upgrade kit

I've still got a standard V1RR, and thinking of upgrading with the Evo kit from rcmart.com for about $135US.

Don't really want to spend more to get the V1RRR or MTX3.

Would anyone think i'm crazy or that it ain't a bad idea considering i'm on a budget.

its ok if you are in a budget crisis ryt now,v1rr evo is great upgade for ur regular RR,i had this car b4 and i really like it and it makes a huge diff over the RR.
i would say go for it if your on a budget ryt now,but if can or save some more money and wait to get the RRR u cant go wrong on this car,for the mean time just use your regular RR if your goin to upgrade to RRR..(its worth it to wait and get the great car)..
hope that it helps ur problem....

Default An Idea who time may have come

Try the front knuckle off the RRR woke on the RR Evo to help make the car steer better.

For the rear use the hubs from the RRR on the Evo to help in stabling the car in the corners.

Just a idea I came up with.

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]

O kay, I'm looking for a decent set up for a V-one RR, not evo. I didn't like the way the back felt with the floating body (Mazda 6), so I removed the links and locked the float so the body and affect the traction. The car still feels squirly. I've been trying to find somee downloadable set ups, but I haven't had much luck. Help, doesn't need to be downloadable. I'm looking for medium traction, asphalt, outdoor, tight layout.

Default MY RR SET-UP

ok..
front camber 2 deg.
front toe out 1.5deg
on a tight technical track use a front diff.. 50k oil

at the rear end...
toe-in 1.5 deg
rear camber 3deg
for the rear diff, clean the inside part of the diff.. remove the silicon oil.. i use an ordinary automotive grease (a full amount inside the diff) and works well!

for the front and rear springs, use hard springs(gold) if your asphalt track is mirror smooth hehe.. but if it's kinda bumpy, use silver (soft)

for the tires.. i use foams.. kind of shores depends on the track and temp. play with 40 to 42 shores...

Thanks, that helps. My car has a one-way, but I'd like the option to run dif or spool, does anyone know where I can get them or if the new ones work too? Also, any links to the pros set ups for this car, I know they are probably old?
