Default v-one s

look at the photo...when you build these it actually specifies to trim the corners as shown in the photo.

but what was amg talking about to do with trimming the brake holder?
Yep you are right it is the two little "raised" bits in the brake holder. They need to be cut down on an angle to prevent them clipping (just hitting) the brake pad.

My car and a NTC3 did a roll off the other day. The NTC3 only just out rolled my car by around 2 feet over a distance of about 12 feet. And my car DOES roll very far by itself with just a push.

Default re rolling resistance

I remember you mentioned that before..its bizarre, the v-one-rr being over driven "should" have a higher resistance than any 1:1
front/rear car. The v-one-s seems to always have had a little resitance. After you mentioned that before I tried it v-one-s vs v-one-rr and the rr won.

Things you can do to get the V1S rolling VERY well.

1. Pull out all bearings, clean them and lube them with a light oil. I do not encourage removing bearing shields from a nitro car.

2. Replace the belts with the SP belts available for the V1RR.

3. Replace the pulleys with the hardened pulleys available for the V1RR (I dont think all pulleys can be replaced)

4. Replace the shafts with lightened shafts.

5. Ensure the brake pad is not dragging at netural throttle.

6. Remove all debris from pulleys and belts (if you are not replacing them)

If you run the gear diffs on each end and then overdrive the car then you are right, the rolling resistance is very high. I use a one-way in front and a gear diff in the rear, which is another way to reduce rolling resistance.

The par number VZ008B (hardened pulleys) and the SP belts make an enourmous difference. I was skeptical myself but owning a R then a RR I coud immediately tell the difference.

Default re re rolling resistance

All pulleys are replaceable (kawahara even do the 2-speed pulley).
rear and side belts are available (sp)

My stock v-one s went 70km/h
I know this because i live near a main road and most of the cars do 70km/h as it is the speed limit and i kept up with them

another thing i found that cause the car to catch when its rolling is rocks stuck in your insides of your rims and they get caught on the things that you adjust the toe in on, i forgot what there called is it hub carriers?
ive had this problem alot and they leave some nasty scratch marks on the inside of your rim

Default questions

ozone
Some of the pulleys are the same as the v1r, the 2 speed pulley is different.(r and rr have different large pulleys)
The alum pulleys will last forever however are slightly heavier than the stock ones.
v-one s. A full set of pulleys goes for about $20.00 (stock)

Default Re: questions

ozy,
the RR pulley is different from the R ..
the RR is using 25teeth and the R is using 27.
however the rest of them uses the same 18 and 19 teeth pulley
there is pros and cons for using alum pulleys. but i perfer to use the plastic pulley. they are light and they last pretty long.
