I found that with the diff noise too, but it sounds good under heavy braking.

I've now gone back to the Kyosho chassis as I could not find a cure for the snapping rear end of the Kawahara chassis, I think it's only meant for foam tire use, but I forgot how much understeer the 05 chassis had.
LSD front diff is a no go, the lighter oil gave great turn in but braking and on power spin outs sometimes bit, set up is great when you have the track but is not good for fighting through traffic.

How about just the front conversion? Wouldn't that give you the steering without the drivetrain and rear end problems?

I've kept the drivetrain but ditched the chassis, maybe when (or if) the UK Foam class goes to Touring shells I might try the chassis again.
I've also found a way to use a standard muffler on the 05 chassis with no clearance problems (photo to follow soon).

I dont have understeer problems! I use only foam tyres though!

I had the front conversion. It gave me a lot of steering but I damaged the shock mounts and need a new one

Cheers

Ziggy, thanx for the offer. But I'm getting the engine dirt cheap...just for trashing. Planning to buy a brand new sirio evo once I've saved enough.

Is the brake disk for the FW-05 and the RR the same part? The RR has a larger dia shaft so the brake disk is sloppy on the FW shaft.

I just changed mine out and the holes were all elongated suggesting some real wear going on.

Am i missing something?

Cheers

The holes on the stock brake disk for the FW05R wears pretty fast. Since there is only one set of holes, you will need to replace it once the holes wears too big.

I use the optional VZW015 brake disk. It is thicker so it does not wear as fast. It also has 3 sets of the holes so if one starts to wear you can switch to another set of holes.

The kit disc wears badly and buckles when it gets hot.
I'm using one from Square (SFW-15), it again has six holes, but it doesn't appear to be wearing.

Esham...I think the idm sleeve is different from the new novarossi engines but dont quote me as i havent compared side by side.
here is some info for those of you that want it (from idm manual)
this is the 3 port info

displacement- 2.1
power- 1.54hp
rpm- 41000
stroke-14.04
bore-13.8
sleeve-abc
ports-3
crank- modified red dot crank
piston-microcasted
case- new idm case
oh yeah and an Ielasis engraved head

This engine has insane compression and a wicked pinch! I got it stuck a bunch before actually getting it to run so make sure you heat it up loosen the plug and have fully charged batteries and youll be ok. It was all i could do to free it up by hand with the engine pulled. Just dont let it stall on the first couple of tanks and youll be fine. I cant wait to fully breakin this engine as already it sounds beautiful! I must have patience.
