Default re header

No those ones are similar to the thunder tiger ones, heres a better picture, the primary advantage of my style of header is the height at which it allows the pipe to sit(down low).
A one-way has NO differential effect.

Default squizzy?

What did you pay for your ZAC 12TR, and what for the exhaust system?

Also, where did you get it from?

Ok, yes the zac will fit the v-one-s (but there is no such thing as a pullstart version), however you would probably be better off fitting the v-one-s clutch unit with upgraded clutch shoes. The clutch you saw is the Kawahara Centax clutch and the pinion gears are way too wide for the v-one-s.
They are a nicely made unit though hey!

Well, the way I look at it, your actually paying about $50-60 for a pullstart on each ps motor you buy, In my case thats about $200 so far! My starter box cost $165 and $40 for stick packs and I can start any V-one s or r on it regardless of whether or not they're pullstart or bumpstart. So if I never have to use a pullstart again, I will never have to fix one again or replace a starter cord, spring, oneway(price them!) so Im gonna save $$$. PS the rules state that a pullstart car must have an operational pullstarter, it doesn't have to be started on it!.

well i dont need stick packs
i got 2 already

but i dont no what to do. im going to keep trying to tune my engine and hopefully get it to work. But if im going to buy a new engine its going to cost a fair bit

490 for engine
52 for manifold
94 for muffler
thats around 640 then i need the clutch as well, then new mounts

thats about 700 if not more

i could go out and buy a v-one rr with a sirio engine and sell the v-one s

but the thing is i dont want to sell my S... i like the car as much as i like the v-one rr more i want to keep the S

how much do u think i could get for my S?
and where could i get the v-one rr with sirio engine?

If the v-one-s is stock, no hop-ups and with the original engine, through rc/tech $350 maybe no radio gear.
Ebay may get you $400-450. But you just cant tell!. Sad but true.

Maybe the way to go is to look for a 2nd hand v-one-r/rr and then add the motor! There is one(fully sic bro) on the v-one-r forum at the moment for $650.00 w/o engine or $800 w/near new os12tr.
I also saw a mugen mtx-2 go for around $350 w/o engine at the track recently. There are heaps of r's rr's and mtx-2's around at the moment coz everyones caught mtx-3 disease .

Well I have to finally admit it, the new Mugen is one fast piece of kit. In fact it has broken track records at all my regular tracks by over 1 second.

Unfortunately I have to sell up and jump onto the latest bandwagon (which I hate doing ) so my V1RR is up for sale. Anybody interested drop me a line at: [email protected]

I am selling minus any radio gear but with an 1100mah receiver pack. Car also has the option of an OS TR if you are interested. I have many hopups from kawahara and other companies plus a heap of spares including belts several bags of pulleys, arms etc. I also have all the springs, swaybar and gearing options for the car and a front diff and front oneway. Includes solid rear diff, kawahara rear diff and standard rear diff. Comes with a Mugen centax with low engine mounts and small diameter flywheel instead of Kyosho, spare chassis plates and top plates, alloy hexes and graphite top deck. Car is used but in perfect working order. I am looking for $350 without radio and engine or $450 with an almost brand new OS TR.
