After reading all the threads here and radio controlled zone, I decided to get one.

The prices are so much cheaper in Japan. Plus you can only get the new foam kit with front one way in Japan for now.

Check out this site:

The car is geared a little low for Revelation Raceway, but I don't have too much of a disadvantage on the straight.

My experience with tis car is the fuel tank as it is rubbing against the brake holder when turning right...all I did was to use a t=0.3 mm tin plate size ard 20x20 mm n stick it on the spot where the brake holder rubs against with some epoxy..solved my problem...I don't want a leaking tank....also shim the rear suspension pins ard 0.5 mm to remove play frm the lower suspension arms... cleaning tis car is a breeze....just take off the radio deck n I can clean the whole car with a paint brush...

So who else wanna share their experience on this car...?

hi, is the fw05 a strong car?... like the v1r?

some friends have told me they saw a fw05 in the malaysia race..
not doing very well----shocks falling apart and stuff..heard was some issue with the car..

i like the design but having my ntc3 was a nightmare... too much work and little track time.


can anyone advise on this car?
