Also this pipe is stronger than any made for the 05 and it has yet to be dented (I have tried).

I'm running 22/50 and 26/45 with 45T kawahara diffs, but I had another kawahara drive cup shatter today, and the replacements they sent me do not fit, so it looks like I'm going the 37T route possibly with the Kfactory 14T input gear when it becomes available.

I had a good meeting today, managed to up my time to a 21 lapper, came 2nd in the final, a few places ahead of Slow&Steady.
Hi nimo ill buy your kawahara centre conversion off you if your going with the 37T

I set TQ and the track record with this setup. You have to use a 2mm tire split in the main or else the car starts to understeer.

Thanks Arron. Are the tires different now? They seem to be a lot softer? At any rate, they worked damn good.

Peter you were flying yesterday. Too bad the plug died--sure would've be nice to see you win.

Default Chassis ?

Do you know which Kyosho chassis has 4mm holes for the engine mount screws? Or does one not exist?

Is anyone running the Shimo?

The 31582 kit comes with a Shimo chassis. It is very very strong and I haven't experienced any tweak running 2 cars for 9 months.

Default FW-05R

Just read a review of this car. My HPI is old and needs to be replaced. I was wondering and this is an obvious new-guy question, so be gentle:
What is the difference between the FW-05R
and the VONE-RR?

I would like to purchase the best car, and while this might spur a great debate, which is the best car?
When were they released. Kyosho site is poor in the updates of their cars. Just a little info if you guys would.

Thanks!

I noted in your signature that you have both the TRF415 and the TB Evo4. So which one is the best between those 2?

There is no such thing as best car objectively. What matters is what you like and the support you will get.

FW series are shaft driven car and the V-One series are belt driven.
