Has anyone tried the light weight clutch bells? I am tempted to put it on my car but wonder how less contact surface will affect the clutch action.

I heard from a friend that the clutch shoe never touches the relieved areas of the clutch bell. Only the edges contact.

I have been using one since I rebuilt my car. The clutch engagement isn't affected. There are no cuts taken out of the actual working part of the bell. the performance gain is pretty much unnoticed but I use it because it's a lot easier to adjust the spring tension.

BTW when are you coming back?

Who here is getting an FW-05RR? Or an FW-05RR Evolution for that matter. Is there an approximate release date? I'm looking for a fresh car.

Hey what's up with that!? You told me not to use it!!!

Anyway, I will be back mid october and i got everything you wanted except the new front end (which is not available). I will be getting the FW05RR or the conversion kit anyway. I am also building my RRR and we'll see how that runs in comparison this weekend.

jeffreylin, who makes the light weight clutch bell? I've only seen it for the 3R, made by 3 Racing.

There is a Kyosho one too. I think I told Jeff not to use the 3Racing one. I bought mine at RC-Union.

Congratulations to Marco Acosta for making the A-main at the RD Logic Championships in only his second race with the car. He was moving up the order when his rear driveshaft threw the pin and he lost rear wheel drive and brakes.

Default Diff advice for small track

I just received a 31582 hop-up FW-05R kit and will be asking a few questions. (Yes, I have read all 102 pages of this thread.)

Iíll be running rubber tires on a very small and tight prepared parking lot track; about 80 foot straight and lots of tight turns, with a few bumps.

Would it be easier to drive this style of track with a front differential, or with the one-way setup? If diff, would a lighter or heavier weight oil be better for this application? I'll be installing the RRR front hubs.

I've never driven with a front one-way diff, but I understand the trade-offs of each as far as loss of braking and gain of powering out of the turns. I don't mind a learning curve if it results in faster laps.

TIA

FW-05R / FW-05RR / FW-05RR Evo?

Can't find it in Kyosho.co.jp

There is only the FW-05R. There is new car coming out that MIGHT be called FW-05RR or Evo. It's speculation at this point.
