The inner bearing (10x15) are the same as what Kyosho supplies. The outer bearing is what is different. You need a 6x13 bearing for the outer bearing.

The Mugen stub axles are T0229.

Hi,

No, I haven't had a chance. I was supposed to race this past Sunday but didn't make it out. Josh was at the track I was going to be at with his FW and I guess Kyosho has some new steering knuckles and rear hubs he is testing. I'll take a closer look next time I am racing if he is there.

Hi I know this is like asking who likes apples and who likes oranges, but here it goes...: I am running the os .12 tr(p) te-spec and I love this engine on the infield, but all the work i do driving hard through the corners gets eaten up on the straights by the rossi/jp engines. I am looking at getting a new race engine(doesnt have to meet roar) What engines are people running in thier cars and how are they performing for you.... Price isnt really a factor but under 400$ would be nice. There are so many engines out there and depending on the dealer and person I talk to they all have different opinions. Im interested what my fellow racers have to say... thanks.

(I have cruized the engine forum but each thread is biased)

Hi Mate,

Since you are from Japan, getting a Kondo or Zac Modified OS TR will be a good choice and they should fit your budget, for a little more the M-Speed Modified OS TR will even be better (cos i have one...hehe) Nothing beat a TR in terms of reliability.

If you prefer a European based engine, the FX12 and EVO2 is a good choice. I have both the FX12 and EVO2 and have run them on my FW05R, the FX12 is definately much faster and smoother but the EVO2 is not too far off especially it cost half the price and the composite carb on the EVO2 are not as sensitive and work like an OS carb. Btw the EVO2 I have are AAC-5 port and my FX is ABC-5 port.

Regards

Joe

i also used the os tr on my fw-05r and it was a really good in the infield but was falling short in the long straights , now i have a novarossi with the kyosho pipe and the combination is awsome!!

thanks for the replies. Marcos Which novarossi did you go with?
Also has anyone tried the new jp motors? My tracks all are now carrying the new jp line and they look very nice but I havent seen one run yet. Joehwee had mentioned that he ran the fx 5 port. The reason i ask is those jp engines look to be well modified straight from the factory. Nice porting work, balanced and newly designed hardened crank. I am however a bit unsure of their single needle carb...how is tuning a single needle? It would seem to me that you would never have a really good tune?
Mspeed is ok? My dealer had mentioned that the cranks are not as well trued and ballanced as the europeans and so they will never be as good? Hype?

thanks again.

I have both a Novarossi NS12S3 and a NSR12S5 matched to the 5.2mm and 6.0mm Kyosho pipe respectively. Both work great.
