There is a rear conversion but in your case (Ziggy) I think the conversion you have done is a better one for foam tyre use.

Got 'em, but still in the bag....

Hey RJL...Thanks for the Kawa Part Item Description a few threads back. I got another one for you.... the pivot balls that came with the Kawa Rear - is that Steel or Titanium? I read somewhere saying those where Titanium - but it doesn't look though. And also on the Kawa Front...where do you put the caster clips...one on each side or 2 up front?


Update on that grub screw (Kawa Center)...I'm using a Permatex Red "high strength" not the permanent ones and it stays there now..

Less than your conversion. And you will need to cut the ends from your swing arms which would make them even shorter.

I cant see why you would want to shorten the rear swing arms on the FW-05. One of the benefits of the car is the long swing arms.

It does angle the top camber link up more if you do this but this can be done with taller hubs ala MTX-3's

Oh well.. Ours is not to reason why. Ours is to but spend and try..Or something like that..

Cheers

My friend was looking for one. I had one until the PL went then i got the JP. The RR12L5 is pretty awsome for small tracks

I still have the V-1-RR with the NSR in it. I got a new PL off of a guy on here. Its a different design with different material. no need to worry about temp as i have had it at 325 and it was still ok.

Cheers
