when racing at penrith last night, i spoke to a friend who did a pretty neat conversion on his v-one s. He has a 2 speed but not the kyosho 2 speed, a Colt 2 speed! apparently it fits straight on with one very minor mod which is to cut away a small amount od plast on the bulk head. these gears are twice as thick as the std gears and last heaps longer. he also has a kyosho 3D centax clutch and a stupidly modified RB that can outrun even some of the fastest rear exhaust engines.

i'll try and get some pics soon.

Pardon me,what is a Colt 2 Speed?? Other 2 Speed transmission that can be used on V1S are from Hyper 10 and Thunder Tiger. And you need to put some spacers to match the position of the gears,the pinion and spur. So nitro dave, your friend is more advanced cause he is using the Kyosho 3D clutch.Hope to see your pics soon.

Franky, I think you do not need that. The holes in front and at the back of the windscreen are already enough for the cooling. Better save your money for a good heatsink head.

i am thinking without a hole in front. will improve the speed and aerodynamic, and that will offset the lost power in the cooling fan,

those EP cars have better downforce without the hole.

also, looks nice.

ask your local shop, or
open to a setting that u run the car in full thro but still slow. around 10-20 Km/h, really rich, then, close a little bit by bit, 1/8 a tank, till u find a good speed and also watch carefully the temp variation. never exceed 120. i suggest u use 16 or 20%. no need 10%.

Does anyone know what is happening with the Kyosho Cup in Australia this year? thinking about giving the tamiya a miss and having a play with the noisy cars.

Please advise
