well the NTC3 has no engine i it.
Nothing to allow it to go forward.
Where as the V-One S has an engine in it standard that can be replaced later.

Dont ask me about rubber and foams i dont know much on them, i'd prefer rubber cause ppl i've talked to say that foams u have to keep them trued and everything, but half our club runs rubber.

Just depends on the surface.
But i dont know much on the rubber foam debate.

I only thought the NTC3 came as a build it yourself i never knew it was an RTR as well.


I just heard kyosho is bringing out a new V-One S,

Its called the V-One S Racer. because everyone was doing the rear floating pod conversion kyosho is releasing some time in november (should be in shops by then) the V-One S with the floating rear pod, so they can get in on all the sales now eve more.

The rear floating pod conversion is a style of how the V-One RR has its body mounted, instead of the body posts coming from the bulk head or some where alike, it comes from a piece that screws directly to the hub carrier so that down force is given directly to the rear wheels in stead of to the chassis and lost in the suspension.

Its a huge benefit to rear down force every one has told me,

its a $40 conversion for it.

Foams are great on prepared surfaces, sprayed with sugar water.
They will hook up great. Otherwise they slide around a bit. A very controllable slide though on unpreped asphalt.
I have no track in my area that preps the track. SOoo I use rubber tires, 24mm HPI Advans, 33r with HPi Green 24mm inserts.
Or Ofnas K-1 slick on Ofnas Hyper rims, with HPI red 26mm(firm i think) inserts. The Advans have some tread so they chew thru the dust and debris on the asphalt. Ofnas K-1 have no tread but on a cleaner surface they can rock.

From my experience with OFNA rims, I think that they kind of suck hard. . One guy tapped the rear quarter of my car and the rim cracked! It wasn't a small touch, but I've seen my cars come clean out crashes in that same position even with a harder impact. Maybe I had a bad set of Eight rims, but I cracked 3 of 'em in three race days, and I've seen others complain about how flimsy and brittle they are.
How have they been for you?
