Well for the front right side that is >.<

I was racing my V1S at my local netball court and it steered out of control and slammed into the pole! I would also need a new Pillow Ball. It slammed hard that it bent my manifold a little further out.

Anyone willing to donate a spare suspension arms?
They are not that dear and they come as a set including,
left and right upper and lower arms caster adjusters and droop adjusters.Phone Stuart, part No is VZ003 .

Yeah the V1S is tough and strong.
Though any car ain't that strong when it hits a pole head on >.<

If i had put on my body shell, i think it would of been prevented.
A lesson learnt.

Also thanks for that part # Squizzy, i hope it isn't too expensive.

Squizzy: on the last page, i was meaning the normal stock set up on the v-one s would loose around 80% of the down force, the new floating pod seems to be great. But b4 i upgrade my car im learning to drive better, dad said about 4 more meets and i can start upgrading if im driving alright by then.
Im racing today so 3 meets after that.



Sausage:
If its only the top of the screw that is stripped

undo the other 3 bolts, and then get a drill with a piece that is just as big as the screw heads, and very slowly and carefully take JUST the top off the stripped screw,
u can then lift the head off, and with pliers u should be able to slowly take the bolt out.

Had to do that on my old electric on the pinion/spur cover.
Works good.
Just dont drill the screw thread, only the head of the screw

Default Glow plug sizes

What is the size of the Glow plugs in the GS-15R. size 8?
I'm still breaking into my engine, but i messed my GP and the hobby shop said size 8.. But according to one of the racing lines magz it says size 5 for 1/10 cars.

Any ideas?

the plug sizes are all the same size i thinks accept for turbo plugs coz they have a taper on them, the os 8 will work the best and last the longest because it has a platnum coil

Very good v-one-s that will work i just tried it, you should have about 6mm to get a grip on.

Just to clarify, the number of a glow plug refers to the "heat" of the plug not the size.
