Finally rebuilt the entire car.

Some touches I added to increase durability:

The monster. I swiped it out of my Serpent. I still need to rebuild the other one. This is the best motor I have ever had.

By the way the best thing that I've found to lube the ring gears is AW Grease from Tamiya. It's extremely sticky so it doesn't get flung off but it's also extremely expensive for the amount that you get. Luckily I had some that a friend gave me a while ago.

Paris "Ronnie grease" is sticky too and works great in gearboxes.

Yikes, I don't like that stuff. Too sticky. I use Kyosho's ring gear grease.

You don't have to put nearly as much on with the AW Grease. Easier clean up and less mess.

I haven't tried ronnie grease, isn't it like Green Slime from AE?

Does that come with the FW Hop Up Edition?

If your running a high power race engine best to get the aluminium centre bulk head and the carry handle. The plastic bulk head flexes under power and saps the torque

I use the KO Esprit II, you can change the module for different FM frequencies (27/29/35/40/41/72/75 and a few I forget).
I currently run 27Mz (FM) as most in the UK run 40Mz and tends to fill all the 40 frequencies on practice days.

How in the world do ou guys use stick controlers???? Everyone as a kid learns off a stick controller with those cheap RC you get for christmas but after learining how to drive with my M8 I'd never go back to a stick controller??? I'd like to know why people are using the stick controller? Thanks.

I'll post some pics tonight of my finally completed FW05R with Shimo Chassis and Carbon Fibre Upper Plate. Can't wait to run it.I seem to have an issue with the dog bones binding in the cups becuase I have it set at 198mm width. I've even taken out the orings in the front and one side still bimds up?? And one side is barely OK?? Is it also normal to have one side(dogbone) to have more freeplay than the other side???? On both the front and back one side has more play than the other? Thanks for your time and I hope someone can shed some light on this situation!

I have used sticks since i started in 1992, I tried a wheel but I have this habit of squeezing when things go slightly off line and squeezing the triger on a wheel makes it go faster. I did try it with squeeze for brake but it made the back of my finger sore, and this is only with a MiniZ, so there is no way I'll use a wheel with a gas car.
I suppose it's more what you are used to, I have no problems with sticks.
(now how do I set up my Microsoft Sidewinder Wheel to the RC controller?)
