Anyone know where I can get an exploded parts view, or see a copy of the Vone RR instruction manual?

Trouble is finding one, they were limited edition kits, and yes the kit comes with a new chassis because front bulkheads go narrower and a "A" arms are longer.
Last time I so one was at Tower Hobbies for $194.99 and part N was LXEZV2

Thumbs up Evo Conversion

Dinball on eBay has a conversion for $155 USD + $20 S/H. He selll out of Singapore but has a good rep. Cheapest I've seen.

You can part-out order the conversion [stock] parts from Tower and fall in the same price range.

RCOnsale has the best prices {limited free S/H w/ $50+ order} and has almost every 3D option available in stock; not including the converstion for V1S/R/RR/Evo.

Let 'em know I sent ya; I usually get anything I order within days at no extra charge [he better give me a % discount for all these testimonials, dang it LOL LOL].

You can add many V1R/RR options to the V1S design but it is very pricey. Ultimately, an S can be made pretty darn close to everything else. If you can go stright into an Evo, just do it!

I have every version and converted almost every combination. Even retired one too pretty/expensive/heavy to race.

Manuals aren't easy to come by but can be found, espcially in hobby shop sites in Italy, France and I think even Germany.

I prefer to stay away from the FW05, but it is a preference based on all the problems I see the NTC3 guys running into because of shaft drives, not experience.

Here's a pic of an S converted and retired. I keep adding as I come across parts and money [gotta keep money on getting fast, lighter and stronger on the active cars]. Don't have a pic of the Lola body I usually set it on the corner of the pit table with for curious minds to get into the hobby.

Thanks for the time and hope someone got something from it.

Thumbs up 2 speed

I have the Kyo 2 speed and went in fine. However, Either 3D Racing or Kawahara may have them as well. Never heard anything about the fitting problem, but then again not many racers in may area are running V1s.
