You're right, losing a bit of handling will not be a problem if it's going to reduce the amount of damage that I'm doing.
Do you guys use setup boards? I was reading a couple of articles in magazine brought out in the UK and the general consensus seemed to be that anyone serious about getting reliable, repeatably performance from their car would invest in a setup board. I guess it lets you dial in the camber, toe in etc....

I know I'm not racing, (yet), but is that the sort of thing that my mate and I should think about getting, maybe between us?

If you guys do use them then a part no. or a supplier link would be helpful!

Cheers

Default re set-up boards

I swear by my set-up board, firstly because you get a consistent set-up everytime, secondly because all those little adjustments made at the track can be analysed. As for brands etc it doesn't make a real difference they all do the same job, its just some are plastic (hudy) and some are aluminium (eagle,integy).

Check out the spring that is controls the linkages. If it has lost its 'spring', then it is time to change one. Mine did not last for too long.

sounds like its still a bit rich on the low end!
Or needs a new glowie, but i reckon the low end needs leaning a tad.

Try this

When u start the car, put your finger next to, but not touching the exhaust outlet, whilst idling, is it getting soaked in oil?
if Yes, LEAN it out, if no, just a bit is coming out, leave it,
next accel up the road (wherever u r driving) and see whether when it wants to have shit accel, wether heaps of exhaust fumes are coming out or none at all,
If none: Richen TOP-END,
If heaps: Lean Top-end
but if none is coming out when idling: Richen low-end
If heaps is coming out when Idling: Lean Low end,


Just a small rule u can follow to get it right.


Hope it helps

Default v-one s

Re your post in the v-one-r forum, There are 4 v-one-r models if you include.
v-one-r (but I dont think we'll see these much now!)
v-one-rr
v-one-rr gt
v-one-rr w/sirio engine.(but probly wont come out here!)

I'm unaware of 3 v-one-s' though, there are
v-one-s
v-one-s racer
The touch starter model is only for the Japanese market and I'm not convinced that dawn trading will bring the racer in (who knows!)
I am dissapointed that the racer doesnt come standard with a two speed however!who agrees?

What U smokin Dude?

What benefit does a one-way offer that you want on the rear?

Im perplexed, allthough if you fit a two-speed you will have a one-way at the spur-gears plus the benefit of a gear diff.

does a one way have differential effect when its accelerating? or do both wheels spin at the same force like a locker diff on a v8 supercar?
