Default 1st run

I made my first run today with the FW05R, great corner speed, great excelleration too! The rear shock came off in the main but the car was still driveable I ran a one way 40 wt. shock oil rear pistons where opened up a bit larger than the front. O toe in front 2 deg. rear toe 2deg. front camber 3 deg. rear camber link in the highest pos. and the shortest on the 3 racing shock tower. I could put the power on very early in the turns, and the sweeper at the top of the straight was full throttle for me.I ran 10,000 rear diff lube and a P[rotoform Alfa with 35 shore tires all around.
I worked on making the car lighter, and got it down to just 2.7 oz. over weight.

Default Wooooh!

Needless to say I was quite disopointed with the quality of the stock gears!

Next shell will be cool! I am fed up with throwing money at the car so have gathered up all the old bank notes I have and will stick them on the inside of the shell!

Old Nigerian, Italian, Libyan, Tunisian.....etc Notes.

I'll call it "The Money Pit!"

Cheers

Tried overdrive with the rubbers, but you cannot come off power when cornering without the front one-way.
Tried foams with front overdrive and no one-way, 3mm difference between front and rear, comfotable push on all corners but no power on push, also braking was good as it put the brake bias to the front wheels.
Tyres were 45 front and 42 rear and the diffs are 10k 4-gear rear, 50k 2-gear front.
I found running this set up the car could not be shaken off line, I'm going to leave this set up on for the next planned meeting on the 22nd.
Slow&Steady eat my dust
why are you running only 2 diff spider gears in the front diff?

I ran the stock gears for a long time and they are still like new.. I can't say the same for pinion gears though...

It was from an earlier test session, and it made turn in better so I just left it.
I done the same to the V-one R I used to drive, and to the Kyosho Cup V-one S, and it had the same effect there too.
And it just happens to save a little weight, both overal and rotating.

Get the meshing as tight as possible but with a little drag as possible.
If you got the Machined Steel diff rings then they can be run a little looser than the kit supplied cast steel diff rings.

AHHH!!! cool! just learnt something thanks
but do you still hold a good radius turn? and do you spin out easily with the better/aggressive turn in?

I have been looking into the FW-05R. Any places on where to find this car at good price? Also, what hop ups are needed, I was told that internal diff gears and ring gear? What parts are needed to install a front diff and is it possible? Does this car have an option for a solid spool?

Better radius turn, better direction change, better power on steering, zero spin out, same for both rubber and foam tyres.

You need to look in to it a bit further.
There are 3 specs of FW05R, and 2 specs of FW05S.
And if you want a solid spool then I suggest you look elsewhere as this car doesn't need it.
