Thumbs down Thanks...

Esham, thanks for the setup guide...

I know that this is not a for sale thread, but it is so hard to get any one to notice a thread on that busy thread....
Does anyone have a spare setup station for sale????

I really need one that will work for FW-05S tourer...

Thanks Aaron

Thanks to everyone that helped!

Well I was able to sneak out for some testing between massive rains.... The car is much better now. the turn in push is much reduced but still there but better.... I noticed that if I feathered the brakes a tiny bit the steering became very lively so I am going to try a slight brake drag. Also the problem might have been fixxed but the track was extreemly slick due to the humidity and oils on the track (my race track had 2 inches of water so i had to use a practice track 1st time there) The cars were all loose on that track so I dont think mine was worse than anyone elses. The front tire size makes a huge difference on this car... I started with a 61 but as it was worn down to 60 and below the handling improved more. In addition to the setting changes I think a part of my problem was tires. The hard part now is waiting for next saturday .

Thanks again guys!

on my fw-05r i usually run a smaller size in the front than the rear and it seems to work pretty good (60mm front , 61mm rear)

If your main is 20min or more then run a 2mm split. Josh Cyruls' setup is a lot like my current one, biggest difference being the front toe, diff oil and rear trackwidth.

It was posted on page 64 by Marcos S710. Tell me how it works for you with that new rear end. My car will be resting until after the O'Donnel race. Until then, the 710 will take me to the A-main, NOT.

No i didnt have a problem with the bearings. I did use the Mugen axles though.

Did you use the spacers for the top connection? I found that I only have to run 2 deg of camber and still get the outer to inner cone shape on the outside wheel.

The tyres last a lot longer as well

Cheers

Kyosho bearing is 6X12 and mugen is 6X13 you must use the mugen bearing size in the Mugen rear upright.
