Well yeah pretty much the Novarossi CX12P is on my list of future upgrades.

Though i reckon it might happen soon since my other friend has the same engine i think on a HPI RS4 Pro Racer. Not sure which exact but for sure 100% a Novarossi and it screams! >.< I think at the moment my V-One S is going to be a puppy to that beast.

Have any of you guys taken off the nut thing that holds the flywheel on the GS15-R? If you have then what did you use to do it? I've been trying to at least loosen it for the last hour but it's stuck like poo to a blanket !

kinda wierd.

everyone is saying is the v-one s faster or v-one rr... the vone rr doesn't come with an engine! so then you would have to choose it yourself. could be better then the GS15R or crappier.

so wouldn't it MAINLY depend on the engine, pipe etc. not really must of the design of the rc car, stability and handling.

No-one is saying that as far as I know! NO hop-up engine is going to deliver LESS power than the gs15r. The rr requires a pilot shaft engine and about the least power you can buy these with is 1HP. The V-one-s is a "sport" oriented car in its standard form however is infinitely upgradable from all aspects.
The RR is a ready to race racer and as such it is left to the purchaser to choose thier personal choice of engine, pipe electronics etc.

The two cars are built on Similar chassis and share the same bulkheads, suspension arms and a lot of the same running gear.

The point being that you can upgrade a v-one-s to RR standards if you so wished but it would cost more than the purchase of an RR anyway. (I know, believe me)

What is this fascination with what beats what anyway.

Default Shock help!

I got my V-One S kit today.

I wanted to start on my shocks first. To see how much of the oil i got left.

Im having trouble screwing in the G2 part. It says hold a cloth over the shaft, then hold with plier, then twist in that G2 part. But im finding it hard after twising it in after while.

Any tips anyone?

Squeeze it reeeeeeeally hard ! You could also use a rubber glove instead of cloth because it would grip it more.
