Hey everyone,

Was just wondering if anyone here is running their gears dry?

I only plan on running a Sports Tuned in there so nothing too crazy.

Thoughts?

Cheers..

I'm driving my gearbox with dry gears and so far it all goes very smooth.
I've also have been driving the car with a 23T super stock motor and i don't hear anything strange about the gearbox.

I have had those spur gear holders for weeks. You will smile when you put one on the car

Any thoughts on whether it is worth getting an FF-03 Pro over an FF-03 kit? Bearing in mind I'd like a Civic shell and I'm not sure it's out as a spare yet.

if you have patience to wait a bit and plan to race it. do so.. you get some aluminium bits and SuperCool Shocks in Pro kit..

If not racing, go ahead and get the non-Pro version..


whichever path you take, be sure and build the plastic diff correctly... wish i hadnt made that mistake..

thats the package that got me giddy with ff03... the civic body is a head turner. but like that other guy above said. it's nice for collecting or showing off, for racing get the pro.

Have got the Cyclone drive shafts to fit with no mods, just needed a 0.3mm shim in each side to take out the slack.
One thing I noticed, and it is a major design fault ..... the original drive axles run against the hub holders when on full lock, which could be a reason why the diffs kept going?
Still not got a diff for the car so no racing with it this weekend

I'm running my car with 40wt oil front and rear, 2 holes in piston and blue spring at the front and yellow in the rear.
This gives the car plenty of steering at an indoor and outdoor track.

You should check out the 3 Racing website to see which options are coming for the FF03

The list is getting longer each time I look.
