Hi guys i got a 2 speed question i would like to ask!
with the 2 speeds for the kyoshos is there only one brand or can i get a different brand 2 speed for the v one s? how many brands can i get all together for the 2 speed for the v one s? as i've heard that theres a particular 2 speed brand (maybe the factory kyosho one) that is really hard to fit or set for the v one s. do you guys know anything about it?

Thumbs up Fuel

I normally get Traxxas 20% fuel and use it for the first 3 to 4 tanks. It is super lubricated since Traxxas engines tend to run a bit hotter than most other manufacturers.

I then switch to Trinity 20%. Although I try to experiment with other fuels from time to time, I have better consistency with the Trinity.

Good luck!

Thumbs up Fuel 2

No sweat. I usually have enough Trax 20% for the my youngest, so having some isn't an issue. He loves to run lean.

I don't like O'Donnell, something just doesn't seem to float my boat. I'm using Sidewinder and it's ok, nothing great, nothing bad. It just happens to be about $17USD/gallon at the local track and I know the stock is fresh.

If I could afford to keep Trinity, I would. At the LHS, it rurns about $12USD/qt! Ouch! The gallon price is easier to swallow, but with a dirt oval in their back yard, the LHS sells a lot more of the Sidewinder...that Trinity gallon seems to have been around since forever and the owner is a bit, well, uhmm, ahhh, greedy!

If it wasn't for the guys at the counter, I wouldn't even visit the shop.

As long as you have a decent brand name fuel, you'll be ok. The key is running the same fuel you plan on racing. You'll know it and your engine, making life easier when you start adjusting to weather and atmospheric conditions that makes engine tuning tricky. I'll finish-out with Sidewinder for the season and then look for that Trinity all over again.

Then again, I know racers that will put anything the find in their tanks without a second thought. That's how I think of my real car, not my RC....it is so much more dear to me..LOL L OL

just been reading through this thread and noted how all newbe's just want to get hop ups to improve their driving.
ive been racing for about 15 months now and with my first v one s which was stock except for the motor. using kit springs,shock oils, diff gears etc and found that with the right setup i could match those that had spent $$$$ to try and improve their lap times. one thing i noted on setup was that droop can be ur best or worse friend, before i change anything at a track i play with droop settings first.

Thumbs up Hop ups

Hop ups are designed for specifics. Longer lasting, speed increases, weight lightening or just plainly for "dressing" it up.

Al gears tend to save belts. Ti trun buckles tend to take impacts better. Springs make adjustments easier to make with a known constant. Diffs to adjust traction conditions in combination with driving style. So on and so on.

But you are right. If you already have a race level kit, you can improve the kit with adding to the package but ulitmately, setting your car or adjusting the set up is where you should go. Not the LHS.

Part of set-ups is to find what works for your car, that day at that track to suit your driving style. Hop-ups are usually used for kit improvements like those mentioned above. And RCs are much like billiards, the balls will roll different everyday; sometimes in your favor and sometimes not.

Thus, my V1Ss's retirement; too pretty to run, too expensive to repair or replace parts. Although I gotta admit, I love to run "ol' faithful".

Droop! Well. When I can really, truly understand it, then I'll paly with them a lot more...LOL LOL

Dangles, you ever get those set up sheets?

Default droop

droop the easy way. handling all depends on weight transfer. too much to th front u get oversteer not enough- understeer if u have heaps of rear droop there is a lot of downward travel in the susp ie lift the rear of ur car from the normal ride setting the amount the chassis is lifted before the wheels lift of the ground is th droop. so by giving more droop there is more weight to the front giving more steering, less droop not as much weight to the front less steering. does this explain it any better. also it will help any newbe's
