Default 2 Wheel Drive V-one-S- is it possible

Hi! Is it possible to remove one of the drive belts on my Kyosho V one S to make it (temporaraly) a rear wheel drive (for a bit of slidin fun!) Will the rear drive shafts/diff. etc be able to cope with the extra power? Thanks a lot, Gavin

I believe it's possible, because I have a V1s and I've run the car with the front belt snapped. It runs, but when you brake, it swerves like crazy! Why would you want to run it like that? I don't think its any fun.

Glad to see your trying something new. Word of advise, front wheel drive kinda sucks in my opinion. I did it on my nrs4 when the rear dogdone came out. It was very hard to get to speed cuz the tires would just lite up and by doing that it would over work the engine. But for bashing rear wheel drive should be a blast...happy drifting

lol u can already drift in a v1s when its 4wd

u might just wanna take off the back wheels and then the little hexagon thing and take out the pin and put the hexagon thing back on so the back diff still gets drive and the wheels dont and thatll make it so that the motor has a little bit more load on it which would be better and easier to do.

sausage_link buy taking out the drive pins u will end up melting your hex drive and the rim will melt also due to the axcel spining inside of it,so i would not advise to do it, if i wanted to make it rwd i would simply take of the drive belt

drift in the V-One S, yeah mine used to have plent of oversteer, now it just has plenty of wash out in the front end,

but RWD is mad stuff just for kicking around, but i have an electric that is permanently RWD if i wanna bash around, but the V-One S is some mad stuff one ya get it going

If you cant get to speed in a FWD cause of too much wheel spin, the same would happen to u with RWD, its easy to stop it, just be a little bit lighter on the accelerator.

By the way, did it leave marks?
I keep hearing these beasts leave marks, mine i can actually hear the tyres squeal, but to no such luck have i left a mark, except exhaust vapour trails.
Im still on the stock tyres as well.
