hey all

can get an advance payment of $300 in april.......

was wondering though..would it be better to bumb in a 2 speed in my
alpha, get a new body, some other bits, or would it be better to get
myself a kyosho V-one-S??.

ive seen them NIB for under $300 on ebay!



what you guys reckon??

The V-One-S is a great chassis - and I think it has a 2 speed right out of the box.


I see we have a new member - Sting i think - who frequents the QRCCRA at Brendale. I think all of the 1/10 Gas Tourer racers out there are running V-One-S Chassis. They then move to the V-One-RR Evolution in the pro class.


That in itself speaks volumes for the V-One-S - I say - bite the bullet...

Nismo,


That's true, if you are going to race it you have to bring it back to a .12. That said, the .15 out of the box is a nice little donk.

Depends on budget and do you want to race it....


Do you want pull start or starter box? Depending on if you are racing, this may be a requirement of your class. Once you answer those Q's I have some thoughts.


Rotary - the barrel in the carb rolls, as opposed to slide where the barrel is slide in and out of the carb.

nope, going to stick withh getting my alpha fully hopped....

we only run .12's at our track..and the track is short..so no need for
massive speed...even if i travel to hobart to race at there longer
track, its only a matter of gear swapping..
