I didnt understand the part of

Most racers that have problems have problems with number 1 and 2. Number four usually is part of #2.
What do u mean by that?
And i'm one of those new guys, i never tryed to keep up with any1, just keep my own pace, by the last 2 races i just got the corner part so that i didnt have to brake or accelrate, i just held it at about 1/3 throttle and then i'd get to the last corner and get a nice bit of front wheel slide as i bury it for the straight-away. And then i'd coast into the first corner. The only tie i tryed to keep up with people was down the straight-away which was really fun cause i like drag racing.

I meant many people get caught up in racing the other guys (myself included), but sometimes you need to pay attention to the race for second if your in first, or if your in third you need to pay some attention to the race for first.

Also, finishing the race depends on your mechanic (and your ability to keep hack as far from your car as possible).

When I was first racing, I was so worried that my car lost so much ground on the straight that I might get too into drag racing and overcook the sweeper at the end of the straightaway. But once I realized that the infield takes about 7 times longer to go through then the straight does, I realized where I could win my races.

Hi guys,

Can you do a comparison between a GS15R engine to the one used by the NTC3? There are hot debate here between these 2 cars and I dunno who is right!

Yes, I meant the engine.

The NTC3 that I saw sold here in Malaysia is in RTR (that's what the box said!).
My friends are debating on the V One S and the NTC3. Personally, I would go for the V One S ( because I own one and the LHS is closer to my office!)

The V-One S can be run by the begineer and all the way to teh world titles, where as the NTC3 is meant for the Slightly more advanced user through to the World Titles.


But the V-One S is way better.

We get to swap parts with the V-One R class, he he he

No problemo.

BTW, my friend told me there are 2 versions of NTC3, an RTR and a self-assemble.

If I wanna change my muffler, what do you recommend?

Default rear pod

Damn Im good to you guys I have red-dotted all the parts which comprise the rear pod. It will fit the v-one-s as i have trial fitted it!
I gave all the part numbers to v-one-s. the only other part you require is the metal tube in the middle.

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

The reason I didnt include this was that a standoff of a pc board or basically any tube with a 2mm inside thread would do the job and the turnbuckles are the same, you could probably buy titaniums for the same price as the Kyoshos.and you will need some screws and nuts as well but you can sort those out.
