Default V One RRR Starter Box

hi,

After the Christmas period, i finished up low on cash but with a V one RRR and a OS .12 TZ to go with it.

But now with a liitle more $$$ i need to buy a starterbox and a suitable manifold muffler for racing.

Money is a concern but i definately want to pay for quality.

Thanks and happy new year,

I can't tell you what to get, but I can tell you what not to get. Don't get that damn pink OFNA starter box. I can't get it to take a charge. Man, I'm having all kinds of luck.

For the starter box make sure you get one that has a 750 motor and can use a 12volt gel cell. I have an Ofna box that I use and it starts anything and and last a long time in between charges.

For a pipe you might want to get the Skyline pipe. It seems to be gettting great revues. I've had good results with RDLogics pipes. You can check them out also. Since your running the OS TZ you may want to also look the OS pipe that matches up with it.

Hey guys

The pink ofna box is a very good, strong and reliable starter box.
But it is a heavy box. I had 2 of them but i sold 1 to my buddy.
Im now useing the Mugen starter boxes. very good boxes as well
and they are very easy going on you. When it comes to
traveling. Nice and lite. 1 for my RRR and 1 for my Evolva 05

LOL its not the starter box , its the battery you cant get to charge. So you should be saying that damn black or whatever battery.

As well you assembled it im sure , so you should be saying. Damn I dont know how to assemble starter boxes either.

Otherwise the pink ofna box that I think you speak of I own and its worked great for me , very strong , holds long charges due to the 12v gel cell. Single large 12v motor that doesnt even need maintenance.

Im good.

The Skyline V12 works very well with the OS TZ.....good torque right across the power band.....and its very good value.

This is mine:

12V DC Motor + Lead-Acid battery and a 100mm flywheel - this thing starts any motor.
Its hand build by a guy here in Germany and costs about 160 Euros.

Cheers, Mark.

You're an asshole is what you are.

No, I didn't put it together, but thank you for making bold statements about someone you don't know. Please move on.
