Default V-One Models

Hey guys, how are you all doing ? I was hoping if someone could help me out by answering some of the questions I have in mind.

Firstly, what's the difference between the V-One S and V-One S II ?
Next, at towerhobbies.com, I've noticed there are a few V-One S with different shells and they are all at different pricing, is the price variance dependant on the shell ? Or the body/chassis are actually different between each other ?

Thanks in advance.

v One S & V One SII:

newer engine and revised upper deck/gas tank.

if they are all V One S chassis then the pricing is due to bodies. some bodies cost more than others due to licensing.

ah ok cool

It's just that at towerhobbies, the price for the S II is slightly cheaper than the S model. So I'm not entirely sure what's the reason behind this since you've said newer engine which means it should be better?

I'm looking at buying either the V-One S or S II depending on which is better out of the two. (In the meantime, I still have 100 pages to go for the V One S thread)

I may get flamed for this but i'd rather be flamed for being a newbie than regret buying an item that I might regret.

I tried searching but there's not many topics for the V-One S II.

Which one should I get ? V-One S or V-One S II ?
Which one is better ?

Thanks.

that's true.

It's just that the S II is cheaper and if it's got the exact same parts as the S model except for a few, then wouldn't it be better to purchase the S II rather than the S ?

Sorry about the newbie questions. It's just that I like to clarrify things before I make any purchases. I don't care about the shells but what's under it.

At towerhobbies, the list of features for the S is longer than the list for the S II so the S seems more appealing than the S II. But only newbies will be fooled(me) I guess.

Thanks.

Hi Elim,
I got the SII. They have a different fuel tank. I found a web site somewhere that told me the differences, I will keep looking for it and post it here. Maybe it was here. hmmm

Oh found it, it was in a mag, Racing Lines, Austatralian Mag.

The artilce was by Luis Sola, http://go.to/solaspeed .

Shocks different colour

GS15R has larger optional head, and piston looks like it has been machined, and the sleve has cross hatch honing finish. Suppose to make run in easier.

The radio plate-receiver box has been redesigned, throttle and brake linkages run directly off the servo.

The fuel tank now has a primer.

Chassis and drivetrain is the same.

Hope this helps.

no probs,

I have had some problems with the pulley that runs from the centre to the front, belt keeps jumping off, due to small stones. But I guess I need to find cleaner places to run.

Let me know when you get yours and what you think. I love mine, just ordered the 2 speed tranny, some aloy pulleys for it from tower. first time I have ordered from tower so I hope it works out.

Best of luck on your decission and keep me posted.

I am in Kingaroy, Queensland.

Futaba T2ER, I bought it in a kit from Mr Toys in Lawnton, Queensland.

The kit was $600.00 AU and contained;

V-One SII Mercedes CLK DTM 2002
Starter Pack with glow warmer, refueling bottle, and some tools.
Futaba radio gear.
1 Litre of 5% run in fuel.
1 Can of spray paint.
#8 Glow plug.

I bought extra:
1 Litre of 10% fuel, A subaru body, and an extra set of tyres.

3 weeks later I have just ordered the 2 speed tranny and some aloy pulleys.

I thought it was a good deal for me as a beginer.

This is not an ad. Just happy with the deal I got and the service.

hey you sure the V one S 2 is more cheaper? im pretty sure its the series 2 is more expensiver. but either one you buy its the same just buy the cheapest kit avaiable. i had to settle for a standard VoneS because the series 2 would cost abit more. oh and the series 2 tanks have a primer which ussually stuffs up which leads to and air leak in the tank.

I have a V-One SII for sale (used)
has an OS 12 CV and "standard" GS15 engine will be in the package too,... port modified, new head)
standard exhaust and one hand-made muffler (tuned to new port specs, and chromed)
c/w Futaba MJ Tx & Rx, 2 Futaba S3003 servos,
2 used bodies (dodge stratus, and porsche)
Team Magic Glow starter
fuel refill bottle
one spare glow plug of your choice (OS, RB or Nova)

the car normally runs on 20% nitro, #8 OS glowplug, and foam tyres

the only problem is one of the head screw of the OS engine is slightly damaged (used Imperial size hex wrench to tighten last time) will need a bit of patience or mechanical help to open it (later,... maybe after 1,5 to 2 gallons,... the engine had 3/4 gallons of Tornado, using after-run, opened and cleaned once)

make offers if interested,... opening at AU$450


might as well offer hand made exhaust pipes,... currently not branded yet, might make pipes according to your specifications too,... current price, AU$ 50 shipped. Currently have pipes for OS TR and CV engines, standard and modified GS15, and Novarossi S5 (inline, but not including the header), available for both left-side or right-side exhaust.

versions for standard STS D5 is currently tested, so does for other Nova based engines (universal)

pipe material is metal with chrome or "blue" bare-metal finish

will upload pics ASAP
