Ziggy, Boner said (V-One RR Thread) that the new 3R's hubs are a good fit. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work as far as handling goes. Maybe they didn't shim it for the right roll height? The 3R has a slightly different suspension geometry to the RR/Evo. So hopefully it just needs a bit of testing for the other chassis'.

NiMo, please keep us posted with your feelings on the new hub's handling. I was just about to buy the Mugen parts, but would rather wait and see if buying a pair of guenuine K parts will save me some money.

Give me a couple of weeks to receive / fit and test them.
I have been told there is a problem with the up/down movement with these hubs, so I look forward to the challenge.

I ran the 37T ring gears in my car with a 22/27 gear combo. Tons more top end. I can now run my tires small and that's how the car likes it. Bottom end power is still strong. If need be, I can run a FDR lower than the 710 with the Mugen 29 pinion. The drivetrain is friction free now. I was really happy with the setup I have on the car. It's perfect for the new track layout which is not 90ft longer.

This should be on the top of everyone's "to get" list!

Thanks, bro! That looks like a good site ... prices are pretty reasonable with other parts too. Is RCunion in the States?

I cannot suss this car out!!
normally if you increase the 1st gear the car has a slower launch, right !!
Well I have now gone to the Kawahara 45t diff rings with a 22/50 1st gear and out the box Jaco Nitro Shoes yet the car still launches quicker than an MTX3 and the top end is even faster on the same straight space even though I'm using less revs.
Anyone got the 23T 1st gear Pinion yet? as I can no longer gear up the 1st gear.

I am not sure... I think RCunion is a Hong Kong site.

RCunion is in Hong Kong, but the service is fast (usually under 10 days to the UK), site recommended.

Yeap ... your car was ballistic today. Faster than my 5-port ... mind you I was using the OS-12TR and you the JP-FX.

Still, I agree with you in that the ratios for the FW05 is very good indeed.

You didn't see it after you left, I remembered to secure the brake bolt which stopped that dragging brake, boy was it fast then.
(it is always good to remember to use threadlock)
