Shaft and belt drive cars have both advantages and disadvantages. I wont relist what has already been talked about ad nauseum. However there is no one "best" system, if there were everybody would be running that system.
AMG- Could you please point me to some discussion boards of this debate? In the GT4 thread its is rumored Yokomo is on a prototype, possibly shaft, so I just want to hear all the arguments over it for my own amusement.

Thanks,
TK

.......definitely get one, they can take a fair whack and stay in one piece...just like a VoneR.

About the only gripe that I have is the highish wear on the gearbox internal gears, but i'm sure that will be addressed soon by Kyosho.

Default FW05R Steering

Did any of you guys experience some steering slop on the FW? Mine doesnt center its steering even after I let go of the wheel. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

You may want to try to tighten the servo saver spring, if not you can change the harder servo saver spring, they are the same size as the clutch spring.

Default 2nd Gear Adjustment

Hey guys anyone can teach me how to adjust the gearbox or should i say 2nd gear without removing the whole gearbox thing? Based on the manual you have to adjust the grab screws to 1.5 turn which is actually it doesn't shift to 2nd gear.

Siokoy:

Do not follow the instruction, there seem to be some error on that part. Anyway unscrew the two speed adjustment 3 turns (both the 2.6mm screw), your 2 speed should enaged and now you can adjust it according to your track. The followings are what I have done to my 2 speed;

1) I have grind off about half the head and taper the 2.6mm screw cos when at 3-3.5 turn out, they are some slight contact with the 2nd gear. But make sure you left enough for your 2mm allen key to make adjustment.

2) Make sure your 2nd speed clutch spin freely in the 2nd gear

3) The hole on the 2nd speed is pretty small and try to enlarge it slightly so that you can access and see the adjustment screw easier. Hudy 2mm ball allen key is a good tool for adjusting the 2 speed as the shaft is smaller.

Hope the above will help.

Regards

Joe

Buboy28: You are not able to use the UJ from the V1R/RR/Evo on the FW05R as they are about 10mm longer (both the front and rear). So far only Kyosho come out with the FW05R UJ and you will also require a different UJ if you are running one- way. The part number for the UJ are as follows;

VSW006 - Universal Swing Shaft (Front for Diff)
VSW007 - Universal Swing Shaft (Rear for Wide Axle)
VSW015 - Universal Swing Shaft (For One-Way)
