The set contains new rear lower wishbones, new hinge pin brackets as well as a new rear upper arm mount.
The updated hinge pin position makes the Velox V10 turn faster into corners without loosing traction while a higher overall cornering speed is achived.
The hinge pin brackets are made of high quality 7075 T6 aluminium with blue or black anodizing finish while the upper arm mount his milled from high-quality carbon fibre material.The lower wishbones have been completly redesigned to fit the updated geometry and are injected with premium composite material. They are also available as a hard version with additional glas fibre to better suit hot conditions.The set [500006] and all parts are now available.

As you are used to from us, all parts can also be converted to your 'older' Velox V10 plattform.

All comes down to budget, I like the Sanwa servos and radio equipment. As far as tools and misc gear, will you be racing? If so best bet is to go out to your local track and see what the locals have. There are relatively cheap tool sets, you'll need 1mm 2mm and 2.5mm for the most part. I've done it little by little.

You will need snap ring pliers to build the kit as well.

Hi,

I started last year with nitro and here are my best tips from o guy how made those beginner mistake.
I will advise you by my best budget tips.

Radio & Servo
Well for radios there is a lot of options and it can’t go wrong with Sanwa or Futaba. Just make sure it is 2,4gh radio.
For the servos I really think there is no need to give +100dollar for servo. SavŲx do make great servos and top drivers run them with great results. They have low profile servos with great spec for 1:10 nitro. And the prices are between 50-60dollar each. If the budget is no limit, then there is a lot of option for you. Just make sure it is a low-profile servo. You can save 15-20g on the low-profile and they are great for 1:10 nitro.

Battery
Lipo or Life batteries is the best choice. I run with 1400mha and it can last easy a finale (45min). The lipo battery is 8,4v and just make sure your servo does work with lipo if you chose to run lipo.

Savox and life battery works great! No need for a faster or stronger servos!
Try to get some recommendation in the thread for your car for best weight and balance on your car.

Starterbox
Hudy! Its just great and worth the money. Trust me Mugen is also a great option.

Tires
I like to run 35Front and 37 back or 37front and 40 back. And always 2mm split.

Bodies
Pre-cut bodies are fantastic.

Tools
https://www.team-eds.com/product-p/eds-290907.htm EDS makes great tools. Good to have 2,5mm ball driver for engine and extra long flathead.

Bearing oil, One way bearing oil, black grease and after run oil. I like to have 2 sets of bearings also for maintains.

there you go

I use Futaba BLS471 servos and they are great. Fast and a lot of torque.

As for starter box - mentioned are ok but pricey. I use Carson (one big motor, similar to Robitronic) and with some tune is OK.
Tires - 40/37 is what I use. Split depends on gearing on your car. You have to check (calculate) what is a difference between front and rear final gear ratio in your car.

Tools - I suggest to collect or buy set. The bare minimum 1.5, 2, 3 hex driver, clutch tool, glow plug wrench, flywheel tool, flat screwdriver (long), pliers. I mostly use Exceed but have changed tips (1.5 and 2) to carbide one made by Arrowmax. OS tools are also very high quality (I use their ball drivers) but pricey. My recommendation is to avoid cheapest tools. You will use them for that and other cars. So buy ones and good ones (not always the most expensive). There are some threads on this forum regarding quality of tools.

Battery - check your car. In case of my Mugen only one type fits without hassle (lipo pack).

Default Body Conversion

Iím just about done with assembly - This car is BadA$$! I had a couple more questions/issues

1) The sway bars in the front are binding with the drive shafts and the wishbone suspensions donít seem to have a lot of vertical movement. Is that normal for a touring car or is something not right?

2) I purchased a 1968 f100 Vaterra Truck Body and of course it doesnít line up with mounting brackets. Are there conversion kits available, which allow for universal mounting?

thank you in advance for all your help. Iíll send pictures soon. Great information on here!!!

Hi,
sorry for my late reply. We are pretty busy with races going on here in europe.
1) Do you have a photo? The swaybars should not touch the driveshafts, neither in neutral nor when the suspension is moving.

2) Unfortunatelly there is no Truck Body conversion kit. I have heard the first time about somebody using a truck body on a nitro tourer.
But when its finished, please send some pictures, looking forward to see something like this.

If you need any further help, let me know.

Greetings


Thilo
