thanks for that.

I searched for 'fail safe' at towerhobbies but have no idea which one would be suitable for the radio gear I'll be getting which will consists of the standard S3003 servos.

Would this one be suitable?
Fail Safe

I'll only be street bashing anyway so I'll just use the ones that come with the kit.

any fail safe will work with any type or radio gear. just get a cheap one as your only street bashing. and as for street bashing i'd get a shaft driven car and not a belt driven car!!! try looking at a tamiya TG-10 or any other cheapish nitro shaft driven car. as belts will strip or snap if a rock gets stuck in between the belt and the pulley! a VoneS is too good for street bashing anyway in my eyes :P

hehe I've already decided but thanks.

If there's too many rocks on the netball courts, then I guess I'll only run it in burn-out comps and dyno days.

:P

I hope everything goes swell with rcmart. *Fingers crossed*

haha burn out comp hey? i guess you'll be holding your car to a stop with your foot and leaving the accelerator flat stick and for dyno day you'd have to do alot of work to your engine or you'd be embarrassed with your factory stock engine :P you gonna put a blower or a hair dryer on your motor?

Hm they should make it clear in the book what is necessary and must be purchased seperately or not.

I don't want to find out that I need something during the assembly of the kit!

dammit hehe.

Default Hi Impact replacement parts Ouch!

Hi All,

Just had a major smash, and as a result I need some new parts,
I need the front and rear suspension arms, and was wondering if the Kyosho Carbon Composite Fr Susp Arm V-One Rr Evo,

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGDF2&P=7

is the same as the original on the V-One SII. Or is there another part number for Carbon Composite Front and rear susp. arms

Thanks in Advance

Dazza

the advantage of graphite impegnated arms are lighter, other then that, they are much easier prone to breakage.
