Exclamation No idea!

Dude i got no idea... I want a RR but then if i ever race which i hope to start soon it means i start in pro, also i dont really want to buy a second hand car, i want new.

Im going to continue trying to fix my car. But i will start saving and i think i could get 650 for my car in the trading post considering there is one going for 750 and another for 1250.

What should i do !

Thats what peeps are asking for cars, It doesnt mean they will get it! Some guys get lucky and get a newbie that knows bugger all and they pay bullshit prices for stuff!. As for $1200 youve seen my v-one-s, there is nothing more I can really do to it, at best I might get $600-700 for it in the normal market place. It owes me over $1300 without radio gear. So I aint gonna sell

Idea, Why not upgrade the engine in yours and higher gear it, thats cheaper than a 2speed and run pro-stock with foams!
Just an idea!

Tell him he is dreaming..... I got 700 for my V-one R a few weeks ago, and I was lucky to get that.... It included heaps of extras and a 12tr..... kawahara diffs etc... all up it owed me over 1500..... so to get 1200 for a second hand v-one s... never happen, unless some chump buys it.....

Just about any starter box will do! (thunder tiger $165)
You will need a new flywheel (fd49 Kyosho)$23.95 Frontline.
yes the clutch bell will work but you will be looking for higher gearing.You can also upgrade the clutch later.You will need new engine mounts (tamiya $12.95 or $24.95) and linkages for slide carb if you go that way.

hope that helps

Yeah you would need a higher gear ratio, the ratio that is in it is to low for a good engine, alls it will do is wheel spin if you give it a heap, and then it will peak rev so quickly.

Or you could go for a 2-speed

Default Lost 2 Speed Screw - Help!

Guys,

I really messed up this time. I was wondering what happened to my 2 speed and realized that the grub screw & the accompanying spring is lost!

I have plenty of grub screws around, but no spring. Any adivce from anyone what I shoud do?

The LHS says that I need to get a new 2 speed set, but that is just BS - not worth to spend the S$70 just because of a lousy spring. Is there a better alternative around?

I tried to find a small spring in my house - but to no avail...

Help!

you will need the fd49 flywheel. I dont remember the part # for the Tamiya mounts but most others wont line up with the cutouts in the chassis.

Horse
Part # vzw-oo6-1(around $10.00 us)
it contains spring,grubscrew,ball and metal holder (ps buy some loctite this time dude).

Joe, at best a mild increase in power (unlikely), More than likely blow your glow plug! More than likely compression leak from around the heatsink base.

Squizz,

Thanks for the information.

Question on your set-up kit. With the rear floating mount, how do you ever get the triangles to fix in the back tyre spokes?

Its hard to do toe in/out adjustments unless I remove the mount. How do you do it?

I just take the mount off, just a little hint though, reverse the top screws and nuts where they attach to the mount, its easier to get a screwdriver in from the back of car and a small spanner in at the front.
