Finer adjustments to gearing.

So my kit came with dish wheels rather than the spoked on the picture, is that a change for all kits?

Just wondering if anyone knows first hand yet how the 05 is holding up on asphult ?

Also i must be the only person on here happy with the idea that the kit comes with a 48p spur..... On the outdoor track we run on 64p do not last very long to say the least.

Just want to get some input on actual performance before i commit to one.

Cheers
Michael

THE SHOCKS ARE DIFFERENT?

what makes you think that? the shocks have always been plastic and a right pain to build at that....

I think that was 87T if Im right. But because of the low internal gear ratio I think its better using 64dp gears.
Did you get your FK05?

The use of 64p or 48p gears doesn't change the min/max gear ratios.it jsut gives you slightly finer adjustment within that range...

The car is building up like a dream..I'll try to post pics..but I have to get back to work and wrap it up here...gonna try to head to the track this afternoon

Did your kit come with the starburst rims?
Mine where dishes with the starburst pattern.
I was just wondering if the kits where different all around because I have seen pictures mainly with the starburst version.

Scooby, yeah I was a bit disappointed when I saw those dish wheels with the starburst pattern on them. Their not even white... like a cream color.
