Tommy, fiberglass will do as well or even a piece of aluminum.

It's not really a high tech part and doesn't have to be made of space age materials

With a piece of scrap graphite and a dremel, it takes 5 minutes to make one and if you want that adjustable screw, go to you hardware store, get a threaded alu spacer and a nylon screw for a few pennies
I'm lazy..

Hi Stefan. I know you mentioned that you are from Germany, wondering if you can translate what is printed on the 2nd page of this pdf.....................

http://www.reckward.de/download/VOR_OB_001.zip

I know it is for a Kyosho V1RR so manyby you will not want to do this

Would greatly appreciate this. Seems to be some sort of mod to the rear end.

AMG,

they are grinding material off the rear hinge pin holder (bring it to 6mm thickness) and that other part, which I can't identify (it says: cut 1mm off to be able to lengthen wheelbase by 2mm).

The idea is to stretch the wheelbase by 2mm.

Hope this helps.

I've had real ggod luck with the Duratrax bearings....They're teflon sealed also,and seemed to have less slop than the dynamite bearings.....

never broken one of them....they're expensive(in 10 x 15) also if you buy them by the pair....but you can buy sets for cars real cheap..

this is for the old HPI pro..and has 6 10 x15's (plus others) for 14.99........

Y dont you just put/leave the oneway in it whats the diffrentce.

Breaks all four wheels thats the only diffrentce and you can get use to not having any breaks. I dont mind having no breaks in the front.

Anyone heard or used that brand??

The stock Mugen bearings are good, but when they wear out I suggest Acer ceramic bearings. I have had a set for almost a year and not one failure. If you don't want to spend that much they have cheaper bearings that are better than most out there.
