Any specific problem with your car FW-05S Racer ? I could say i have no problem with my car now after i ensure afew basic tweak condition.
Base on my experience pls. ensure everthing is working smooth.
My problem before...
1. Not smooth rear diff
2. Rear diff oil too light 7,000wt now I use 10,000wt

Get your tires right first Slide, spinning ..? Change it too soft. But when you already in soft tires ...then start working with the rest of setting. Just my experience

yes tires are very important , my kyosho works really good with 37 shore(monotuning foam tires)front and rear.

Default Thankyou, Josh for those pics!

Diff oil
I use Kyosho silicon oil:
Front: 30,000wt
Rear: 10,000wt

Shock oil
I use Team Associated oil:
Front: 60
Rear: 50

I have a large assortment of tyres and still working out what works best. Last race I used Foam Fast Tyres 35 Front + Rear.
They seemed to give me that little more speed...
But probably not the throw I was looking for...


Esham, what front and rear diff oil are you running? I think mine may be just a little too thick...

Esham, would you also have a setup guide like Josh?
I like to have options and I plan to vary my setup each race until it is just what I want!

Thanks Aaron.

Replace your exhaust only after it's had the stinger broken off or you know what you want from a pipe. Check your local clubs as us Vics. have a stock class that rocks.
