Kyosho VZ-111 .4oz......... 13g
Kyosho VZW-056 (hollow) .2oz......... 7g
3Racing V1E-012 (alum.) .1oz......... 5g

Thanks!
I just checked and I have 1.5 degrees. I could probably get away with less. I need to test the car out some more. The middle shaft is from Kyosho. It's the hollow middle shaft for the V-One R. I'm guessing about 15% of the parts carry over from the V-One RR Evolution, the majority being drivetrain related. I bought it from Tower Hobbies( www.towerhobbies.com ).

Default Re: Fuel tubing length?

I was finishing up my build on the car and wanted to know what lengths you guys are running for your fuel tubing, both to the engine and from the pipe? What are the affects of running a longer one compared to a shorter one? I was just about to copy the manual and keep the fuel tube to the motor short and the pipe tube long, but after seeing Atsushi Hara's car ~>

I see that he has both fuel lines long. Any body know why? Will this allow the engine to hold its tune better perhaps?
People run long pressure lines to hlep smooth out the pressure pulses from the pipe. At max revs the pressure pulses are very strong and can foam the fuel causing a lean fuel mixture.

A pressure chamber accomplishes the same thing without a tangled mess of fuel tubing. I am using the big Kyosho fuel filter with the mesh screen taken out as a pressure chamber.

I run my fuel line 8in (20cm) which is the maximum. Someone was teling me at the track that the tank is undersized so you can run a fuel filter to bring it up to 75cc if you are going by the book. If not, I'd run it as long as convenient. I have seen some people go overboard because it takes so long for the fuel to cycle through the line.

Let me know how light that is! And give me a heads up if you find a hollow or Ti 2-speed shaft from someone other than 3Racing.

I'm using the 11 from the manual. That's on my list of things to try out next time. I believe the 12 takes away off power steering and increases on power steering. Teh 10 does the opposite.

Thanks racing4evo. Thats what i figured too. I have alot of things i want to test.....but testing isnt racing and my girl is getting miffed at me sneaking to the track at night to (test). I think i also saw a lightweight 2 speed shaft at the same track. Ill be going there again next week. (or maybe tonight)

Not a fan of the 3racing stuff?

Kyosho VZW-025 (Ti) .2oz......... 7g but this only fits the R/RR. It is the same length as VZ-111

The 3Racing V1E-012 is drilled to accept the whole R line. R thru RRR
