Default parts

i use the 3 Racing front shock tower bulk head and the rear v-0ne-rr alumin camber brace.( gotta take a couple of mm off to have o nice fit)..never used anything else. i use the kyosho t-7 chassis....i made 4mm carbon fibre front shock tower. and a 3mm "red" carbon fibre radio tray (more rigid).........my standard fw-o5r with the mentioned parts is great... i bettered my lats years lap times by a sec and kept the con sistancey to .99secs per lap.
the fw is a far better car to drive smoothley and consistantly at the top level of pro notro toureser... its a far better ca in high traction than the RR...ive got the RRR now and im going to test back to back and pick my car for the auatralian national titles...

I found a kit R for $320 from tower. I figure it is not the hopped up car. It has the same model number of the ruber tire model. Are the thicker chassis, carbon upper plate and hop ups from the hopped up car helpful in durability or performance?

That car for 319.00 does not come with a 1/way or universals, try www.dinball.com I think they have the hoped up car for $380.00

Even if you never crash you still need some things to improve durabililty.

Aluminum brake holder
A stronger brake disk
Steel ring gears(especially if you decide to run 40t)


That's about it. You can decide what to else to get when you brake it.

If 30k with 4 gears is the same/simular with 2 gears and 50k... people could use 4 gears and 30k to get the simular effect? if so than the 2 gears and 50k really isnt benificial as alot of people run 30k fronts and 10k rears with 4 gears at each end. not indending to have a go at you just trying to understand the situation if there is any upsides of this facinating setup.

Lower rotating mass.

Two metal gears and a steel shaft is plenty when it comes to rotating mass.

Also there is less rotating force that needs to change direction, so the car turns easier but does not kick out the rear.

The difference in the diff oil is to prevent the diffing out effect under power, the thicker oil is needed as there is less parts to have a friction effect on, so:
50K 2-gear diff will have a similar friction factor as a 30K 4-gear diff.
You understand now?
(I'm not sure which words you use to describe this in the American language, as English and American is not always the same language)
