Personally I like the MTX2. Some people ran into problems with the Kyosho car because of the front oneway. Most tracks aren't open enough for them. I've also driven the Yokomo car and its OK, but it didn't feel as balanced as the MTX2.

Uneke, that's why you get the standard kit. Only the GRP kit comes with the front oneway.

front oneway design is not intended for open and wide track. we run both front and mid oneway at a tight and narrow track.

Yes in my electric Schumacher car, I run both one-ways on a medium-tight track, I put a solid center and front diff and was way slower!

I gave myself a hard time trying to decide which kit...... the only reason i went for the V One R is that it just seemed to be very strong and handled well out the box. The Hop-ups that are coming out are of such a high quality also. But i also have an MTX2 so i still can't really pick just one....... good luck.

I had the V- one - R with the oneway and I could never get the rear end planted. It seemed that there never was enough traction. Also, on most tight tracks you need at least a little break, with the oneway unless you want to go spinning you will not be able to use any..........

try the lower camber link on the rear hub. you should be able to get your rear end more stable. besides, adjust your rear end at least 2.5' toe in and increase not more then 3' if needed.
