Hello everybody,
Can any of you guys give some idea. How is the V-1S performcement on the track. I am getting the V-1S this week, but after I read a couple posts. I am not sure if I want the V-1S anymore. I guess I have to save more $ for the V-1RR or MTX3.
thansk in advance,

Nitrojone - its all dollars & sense

I would love to buy a Serpent but the total cost is more than 2x than of a V1S.

I've hopped up my V1S (against general advice) and I think that its doing pretty well on the smallish & twisty tracks in sunny Singapore.

You are not going to get the V-One S

That is pretty stupid after reading a few posts,
the v-one s goes perfectly fine on the race track once u have driving under control, even while it is stock it has pleanty of power to muster up.
A set-up though is a must, and it will seem a bit loose to start with until u learn the car a bit more.
A hint i was given was, instead of running the caster blocks all in the front, was to run all of them, except one of the small ones, in the front, and put just one small one in the rear, it makes it more consistent, i am going to try this out soon.

Firstly, does the track where you wish to race allow .15 size engines, if not you will have to replace the standard engine irrespectively! The next question is whether or not you want a pullstart or bump start type car...you can put a bumpstart engine into a v-one-s however a v-one-r or mugen will not accept a pullstart motor.
v-one s, The gs15r is a great engine on club level, Ive had a really good run from mine, however in all fairness you cant expect it to go up against Novarossi,OS, collari etc which yoiu would frequently encounter in "serious racing". I can only speak from my experiences in putting the novarossi cx12-ps2 into mine and there is one hell of a difference,also a price difference but compare the standard .56hp to [email protected] rpm!
But the v-one-s handles this engine superbly!
Nitro-joe, I dont know your background(whether or not you experienced or a newbie) but the v-one-s will see you through from your first race as standard right through to bumpstart next to v-one-r's and mugens (with upgrades) if thats the way you want to go!
Dont make the mistake of buying some mega-horse power car that will turn you away from the sport because its too difficult to get it around the track with limited experience.

A hopped up or whatever GV will NEVER EVER be as good as a stock V1S for racing or carpark bashing. It is that simple. GV sell a lot of units based on low price and a pretty body shell. They are weak and can never be made to handle.

Default gv vs v-one-s ?

Holy Wack!
Dont even go there! compare the suspension set-up, Centre of gravity, steering set-up etc these cars are NOTHING alike!
The v-one-s has the same suspension geometry as the v one r and rr and a very low centre of gravity and as such is designed for racing as such.
The GV is not, does not pretend to be, nor has it ever been marketed as a race car!
Its basically designed for street posing and doing donuts and as such will probably end up in someones wardrobe after about 3 months from date of purchase!
