It came already fitted by kyosho, and it was a wierd oil covering very thin and it has caused screws with loctite on them to vibrate out, so im pretty sure it could of caused that small screw to vibrate out since it didn't have any loctite on it.

You may need to replace the bearing if its really bad and not just crap,


and the screw i lost is metal to metal cause i have the metal screw, then there is the little metal piece it screws into

Does any one who owns a v-one S and knows plenty of the V-One RR or owns one, could they pelase tell me is it possible to put the v-one rr floating rear pod on the V-One S cause they sound like an excellent idea, and i mean without hacking too much apart of either the V-One S or teh Floating rear-pod.

Default re-floating mounts

yes its possible!
Part no- VZ083 are the plastic mount parts @700yen
Part no- VZ077 are the turnbuckles @400 yen(2)

The two of these include everything you should need to do the conversion.

Try emailing Stuart at southern cross hobbies in Sydney

or Phone 02 9791 3129

He may not have in stock however he imports direct and is usually about half the price of LHS' on kyosho stuff.

Default V-One S

V-One S............hell yeah!
if you push down on your shock tower, your chassis bottoms out,
if you press down on the floating set-up the weight is distributed
between the tyres and the suspension giving more downpressure on the tyres not the chassis. IT ROCKS
Not only that, I had to run 3.5 deg camber on foams at Mingara
on the rear right........now 1.5. Dont listen to me just do it!!!!!!

Have you had problems of it doing damage to the shock set up if you roll it or spin into the boards?

Cause im still learning to drive, (I got the straight line part alrigt) but getting into corners and judging them properly really gets me bad and i tend to slide into the wood barrier, so does it do much more damage since the shell is attached to the hub carrier and the shocks?

No it doesn't put undue strain because in crashes, your wheels or foam bumper take the brunt of the impact. Also, lexan is weaker than the plastic, so if anything were to get mangled in a crash, the body would take the damage, not the mount and what it attaches to.

Thats good then, cause my dad thought with it still being connected to the hub carriers and in a side-ways shunt it could do some good damage to the hub carriers or the shocks,

The housing is plastic, but the metal flange the screw goes into is Metal, u dont actually screw into the P/S housing, it just passes thru it holding it in place.
