Screw chasing cats.
Its more fun to chase the occasional medium size dog, that then gets curious and comes back for more. And then u tramp it and get it scare in either a front or back paw, or if lucky like i have been, square in the nose.
They soon start to be fun to chase.
Specially when u play the stop go game.

Chase the dog, and it'll stop in a couple of metres, so u stop.
u let it turn and walk about 1 step towards the car, and u start chasing again, repeat steps until u r about to loose range.


Very fun.

lol
that remided me of something that happend to me 2 weeks ago when my car was working

me and my mates where driving our cars, we where getting ready to pack up, i had just a bit of fuel left and a dog started chasing my car. i had forgotten i had just about no fuel, the dog was furiously chasing the car and then after about 1 minute i ran outta fuel and ive just thought to my self... oh [email protected] lol i would have laughed if the dog tried to ate the engine
i could just imagine the burnt mouth

but he never even came close to the car coz his owner called him back

was pretty funny when i ran outta fuel

Default V-One S/R/RR Hybrid

I finally got down to fixing the V-One RR floating rear mounts and shock stays onto my V-One S. Worth every cent of the SG$18 (equals AU$18/US$10-12) I spent.

Here are some photos of the final work.

ok guys here are all the part nos.
vz-o83-plastic parts
vz-088-metal tube
vz-o77-turnbuckles

Youll still have to get your own screws and nuts

Squizzy posted them sometime back. Here it is Turnbuckles are optional IMO but useful if you wanna get better adjustable ones. Also make sure you get some screws and 4 3mm nuts for the floating hinges. The rest you'll probably be using your original screws.

The big advantage of turnbuckles is for adjustment of rear camber without undoing the arms, with the standard set-up you are limited to a full turn of the link which is nearly 1 full degree per turn! with turnbuckles you can make 1/4 and 1/2 degree incremental changes easily without removing anything.

The front ones are the steering titanium turnbuckles.

try looking at v-one rr spare parts to get the plastic parts and the metal body post.

There sure is... http://www.radiomodels.com.au . When I don't order from my 'secret' source I get stuff from there. Their prices are cheaper than an LHS.
