Maybe I have to create some mudflaps or something :P
we use a paint brush and after every run while letting the engine cool down we just brush the dust off

Can you create some mudguards with plastic and mount it behind the front wheels?

The rubber tyres are a lot cleaner! Otherwise you just do the best you can.

I was only saying but I think it's possible and would be a great idea to try and maintain the car from becoming dirty.

Default Lola Body

Anyone ever converted their touring body for a Lola body?
Is there a marked diffrence in handling?

Yeah it's not as fancy as the normal touring ones however I was told that the design plays a role in the car, perhaps in handling or something.

if you want a body that handles just stick with the stratus or 300M, those bodies are good any body looks good with a good paint job!

Yea youre right. if you need better handling consider the floating rear pod mod.. but personally i just dislike the lola even though it has alot of downforce... it just doesnt suit my taste

I chose the LOLA because for the same price as other V One S, it has the floating rear pod, i think


but then realised that I can't use those touring 1/10 200mm shells! Unless I get those shell mounting poles.

OH wells

Just some feedback.
After bashing it, I've finally ran out of 2 litres of 10%. I'm now on 15%, so to be safe because I'm really paranoid, I've richen up both the low and high needles.

It's more responsive, however just before I ran out of fuel, man the thing FLIES. It launches hard. I guess it's because the settings are too rich so I think I should fine tune this animal soonish.

elim do yourself a favour and buy a temp guage either the venom car mounted one or a infrared temp gun and tune it to temp of around 100-110 degrees c. y did you run it in on 10 % ive run all my cars in on 16% and they are still going general rule is to run it in on what you intend to run. as for those body posts around $10 same as the v one rr evo (the whole rear floating assy is off the evo)
