Default RRR and Kawahara

Since I last posted I have read about the RRR hubs NiMo is talking about. Can someone post a link to them? I can't find these at tower or any other hobby shop.
Also, you guys talk of a alloy or aluminum 3racing gear box (i might have this wrong) yet there is noting on the we about it...

Any ideas would be a help!

Is anybody have a package on how to reduce weight of this FW05R? What is the reasonable or practical weight for this kit?

Thanks

RRR hubs are easily obtainable from at least three Hong Kong online dealer sites.
3racing or Kfactory alloy gearbox housing is also available at them sites.
The alloy gearbox housing does help free up the drive train and doesn't flex when it gets hot, the difference is only noticable after a long run of 10 minutes or more.

The car is about 120 grams heavier than its rivals, but it doesn't appear to matter.
Maybe if someone done hard wearing titanium or alloy diff ring gears then the weight can be greatly reduced.
(NTC3 diff ring gears are available in Delrin)

I know nimo did a comparison of several touring shells and the protoform mgzs came out on the top of his list. I was wondering if anyone had compared:

atenza sp ltd
mg zs
aflfa (newest)

I am curious how they match up as it seems these are getting the best feedback.

hey guys
have you guys expeirenced the steering slightly not going back to neutural ?
well after putting both my FW-05S and R on my setup jig i found that both of the steering systems would return either 1 deg in or 1 deg out depending which direction i turn the wheels! for eg.
if i turn right the steering system will have
right wheel 1 deg toe out and left wheel 0 deg toe in
if i turn left it will be
right wheel 0 deg toe and left whee 1 deg toe out
althought my R suffers less (0.5 deg changes)

You will never eliminate all the slop in your linkages or even the servo gear train. Gyroscopic forces and caster centre things.
Not on shopping trolleys but.

Hi

Change the small plastic bushing that goes through the steering plate for the optional stepped bearing (optional part in back of manual) This eliminates any slop in the steering

Cheers

oh so when driving it actually acts differently compared to having the car on a setup jig and board, and centers the steering the same everytime? i get it
