-carbon steering plate...stay with the stock ones, unless you want to change the ackermann.
-carbon composite front and rear arms...hmmm hvn't tried it yet but shuld be tougher than stock.
-special main chassis.....must hve...unless you go for the hop up brands...stiffened up the whole car.
-carbon upper plate....change the chassis first b4 u decide...though it looks nice n beats the stock ones.
-carbon shock stay F&R...don't go for it...breaks easily
-light weight 1st gear housing....reduce rotating mass
-and a kyosho tuned silencer (black one)(which one to get? 5.2 or 7.0? or should i get the silver one? what's the difference between the black one and the silver one?)...get the 7.0 mm stinger dia...black or silver...up to you to decide....cos I culd get my hands only on the black one.

The rear doggies fit great in a pinch, but will order a new rear drive shaft A.S.A.P.

Thanks for hearing me panic with frustration.
welcome to the club....

I just got mine and was very suprised and happy to find the SP chassis and the graphic upper plate included.

Directly from the J-land. The car is only 26400 yen but paid 8300 yen for shipping to US and 4200 yen of tax, totals about $365.

Hi guys, I just got the kit and am about to build it. I have a question about the rear gear diff--how much oil should i put in the case? Should I fill it or fill to a certain level only? The instruction does not say either way. Thanks!

just wondering if an OS .12 CV-RX would pop straight into the FW05R? the reason i am asking is because i saw that there are some spare parts that are OS engine specific like: spur gear shaft and flywheel set on the FW05S...would it be like this for the FW05R?

unfortunately i bought mine already but it's not the sponge tyre version. i am actually deciding between buying another one (the sponge tyre one) and selling the rubber tyre version but i cant decide. reason being that i've driven one-ways (electric car) and i find that because braking is not as good, being a nitro (read: much faster ) braking is quite important so maybe it would be easier to drive the non front one way car any advice you all can give me? go with rubber version or front one way version? why? why not?
thanks!

Set your radio to reverse on both throttle & steering. Check your radio manul.
