Hope you have fun with your new setup. I always want to get a front one way for my car. A bit tired to see my tyres doing wheel spin when I full throttle out of a corner.
Hi Vifer!
Where is your playground in Singapore? Will like to meet up with more V1S kakis.

If you are running in the wet, id run as soft of a tyre as possible, and heaps of tread, and brakes in the dry i dont even use, i found itll go into the corner better for me with no brakes, so i only used the brakes to kick it around the 2 hairpins in our track

Default Wet Weather

rhandee>

I really suggest that you don't play in any wet weather. First of all, your car is more prone to accident due to unpredictable tire slippage. Secondly, I had destroyed a brand new servo while playing on wet surface.

I would rather let my car live another day then killing it just for a short period of fun.

Hi Racmark. I usually play at Marina South track or join another group of guys at Pasir Ris Carpark for heavy vehicles just beside TPE on weekends.

PS: U hav PM.

Default WET Weather

Youre right vifer. even if the Battery and receiver is locked in....water still gets inside. and i also noticed that most of my screw starts to corrode after that wet race.

Next time i'l never play on wet grounds! Thanks guys!

Hi Vifer!
If you play at Pasir Ris and MS, I guess you would know a guy who drives a V1S too and just got himself a Serpent.

Firstly the clutch, why is it wearing? these clutches are really good wearing units, is there anything binding in the drivetrain?

Anyway Kyosho do a "vespel" clutch part #39673, really hard wearing!

On the diff- the neg-gear diff is really cool and will prevent unspooling through corners.....a pretty dear option though.
What is the car doing that makes you want to change the stock unit? Once again the stock diffs are a really good unit and can be tuned really well with the right diff oil to suit whatever you want to do. My v-one-s currently runs a one-way on the high speed track I race seriously at however on the rough track which i call home i run the standard diff with Mugen50000 wt oil in the front.

How do you manage to hold the brakes at the same times as revving?

do you just lock them on when the car is set stationary and adjust right up tight?


and if you want burnouts, just drop the drive belt to the front wheels. It will get seriously sideways with the GS15-r.
