first and foremost that is not the new v-one-s just a stuff-up by the fools at dawn trading who we must put up with as the distributors of Kyosho in Australia. Yes sad but true, they cant even get thier ads right but are trusted to represent Kyosho in a professional manner in this country. That car is the kyosho Pureten alpha gp 4wd not the v-one-s (thank god)

VZW-014 is the belt number for the side and rear.

The new v-one-s is essentially the same as standard, however come with foam tyres,floating rear mount and lola body (see photo). No other info available at this stage.

Default re-diff oil

yes you will need silicone diff oil
everyone has differing opinions as to what torun so i suggest you talk to people at your local track.

Default mmmmmm

no its not the new v1s
yes it is a shit car
yes it does look familiar

As for the comments on the new v-one-s I would imagine that people would buy it because of the reputation that it has built, not because it has a lola body...as for suckers, they will probably buy the new ntc3 rtr (without a lola body)...probably thinking they're getting the real thing....

Concur,

V1S is a great car. Good value for money and you can definitely match a V1R/R if you have similar set-up & equipment, e.g. engine

I heard heard people say that in a long straight track the V1S will lose out because of its gearing ratios though...

interesting...., yes you could upgrade a v-one-s to close to v-one-r/rr specs (as I have done) however the cost of the exersize would make it somewhat prohibitive (as I have found out).

Chassis $120.00
Carbon fibre top plate (inc fueltank and batteries)$150.00
Two speed $100.00
Shocks $100-200
One way $85.00
Diff upgrade $50.00
Engine and pipe $500-700

Its more economical to buy the r or rr straight up or youll end up with a $1200 v-one-s that hardly gets raced anymore
The thing that does make a difference is experience as I wouldnt buy an r or rr if I were a total newbie whereas an s is the ideal (yes there are others) car for a beginner to start with. Durability being a major factor and upgradability being another).

Gearing is not really an issue as it can be changed.

Two major factors effecting this sport are the two extremes of cars available in the marketplace.
1) Cheap junk that breaks easily and discourages people from continuing racing.
2) People confusing thier ambition with thier capabilities and buying pro-level cars that they havent got a hope in hell of getting around the track in one piece.
But yes I agree, the v-one-s is an excellent car and good value for money!

My 2c

No Brett thats not was I was implying...if you read the post it says exactly what I meant;

A sucker would be more likely to buy an NTC3 thinking he was getting the "real" thing than buying a v-one-s because it has a Lola body.

I have no-problem with the ntc3 nor the cx-12ps/ lynx 3d combo as I run the same in my v-one-s, allthough the "cheap" comment has me fascinated.

Default Hop Ups

squizzytaylor,

Yes, people do say that it is expensive to hop up a V1S, but it isn't that bad.

The prices vary significantly across countries, Hong Kong being the cheapest place.

But the hop ups that are absolutely needed (imho) are:-

2 speed
Diff upgrade
Floating rear mount
Stablizers (personal preference)
One Way (shouldn't this be personal preference since it suits certain driving style)

The tx & rx, engine, tune pipe & tyres are also needed on the V1R/R thus should not be included in the list of hop ups

Question of the carbon fibre plate - it looks fantastic, but I have never driven one. Does the centering of the fuel tank make any noticeable improvement in handling?

Also, I understand that one would need to use only hump backed rx batteries instead of the flat ones. Is this true? I would really like to get one, but my rx batteries are the flat ones.

there are two types of hop-up....those that work good and those that look good. The reason I included the engine and pipe is that ultimately you are paying for the standard one when you purchase the car. it is a shame that there isnt a version of the s without an engine but supplird with a 2-speed!

The c/f plate would probably be of more benefit with a standard chassis as I have the Team Kyosho one, as for the weight distribution its not really noticeable. The primary benefit of the plate is for the mounting of the throttle/brake servo as the standard plate makes it a nightmare to set-up your linkages with a slide carb.

You could write a book on good hop-ups like alum hubs for example! but at the end of the day, its all personal choice.
Just like the choice to buy a v-one-s over an ntc3 or visa-versa.
