Hi guys,
just completed building my fw05r. I noticed that with the stock set up, my car front tires are in toe-out position. didn't measure how many degree though. Is it normal? How many degree of front toe-out is it actually? Thanx.

Check your front width, sounds to me like you may need to screw the pivot balls in a little.
I'm really enjoying this car, as quick as an NTC3 out of corners and no reliability issues, no more stripped belts has to be a good thing too.

Default LRP Nitro Masters 2004 Luxembourg

The Kyosho car of teamdriver Takuya Ito from Japan


Takuya Ito finish in 2nd at the LRP Nitro Masters 2004 Luxembourg. From the looks of the picture the car is using all Kyosho parts. I guess the car works good with out using different conversions.
