Yes you can use your rebound adjustment.

you obviously dont know anythin about boost bottles and i doubt they would work as for them to work they have to be alot larger than the actaul crankcase... only in rare occasions and when they come with a engine they work

He should be able to get them if he is a mechanic.


Does anyone know how much it will cost to put all new bearings in the back of the car (Hub, Hub carrier, bulk head, spur shaft holder) and for the front (Front bulkhead, hub carriers, hubs)


Because it looks like i need some. plus one of the ones in the rear bulk head has become dinted some how.
Dont ask me how, but it is.
Im gunna clean them first see what it does, but i have a lot of resistance, all the belts are ok, i've the back end of the car apart 2 times now, the front is fine, so i think it is bearings in the back of the car.And what do i soak them in to clean the bearings?

have u tried soaking them in metho over nite
then
soaking them in light engine or shock oil over nite and it usually clears em up

if that doesnt u just rebuild them ,its really easy to rebuild em and chuck some grease in

I didnt think that the bearings were meant to come apart.
But thanks sausage, u gave me my answer to what to soak em in.


so just methylated spirits to soak em?



Edit: How many types of different chassis are there for the v-one s and how much is each one.
and are they undo the underneath of the old one, put it straight on the new one?
