Further it is low center of gravity conversion and the NEW version appearance which carries out the optimization of suspension geometry! The shaft 4WD specification which fully loads the specifications in order to win with race/lace, aims toward worldwide game victory.
Portuga, Here's the link to the 05RR on Kyosho's site. Nimo even translates it for you.

Thanks for pitting for me along w/ Ryan Namori. The car was very easy to drive in the main and was fast enough on the straight to keep up w/ most of the field. The car is getting better everytime I go out w/ the car. I am still trying to get used to driving a shaft car since all I've ever driven is belt cars. This car is very fast in the infield! Hey Peter, I have the motor ready for you

Nimo, since you have installed RRR front hubs, will it affect the toe in/out ?? And how much improvement in terms of handling for the car?

I am thinking of swapping my current ride for a FW05R

Thanks.

You will have to shorten the steering tie rods if you are using the RRR front hubs on the FW-05R.

Took a look at my buddy's car, the tie rods seemed it can't be tightened anymore, unless it's cut??

Cut it or use the shorter ball cups on the same parts tree.

Just a question, how competitive this car say comparing to the MTX 3? I have heard FW05R has less acceleration but its fast on technical circuits. I am contemplating a change

I just bolted the RRR hubs on to the car and made no other adjustment, went out for a test run and immediately noticed a better front end, I will never go back to the original front hubs now.

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
You must have a front diff with rubber tyres (or spin out everywhere)
50k front diff, 10k rear

Thanks, NiMo.

On a related note, I see that the foam tire kit uses rear dogbones that are a little longer (about 2mm) than the rubber tire kit. I don't see any other difference in the rear suspension exploded diagram (hubs or axles). Do you know why these parts are different and whether I'll need to use the shorter dogbones when running rubber tires?

i think is because the rear foams are 30 mm in width and the rubber tires are 26mm

I see the difference now. In the assembly instructions, the gap between the a-arm and the hub is 3.8mm for the foam kit and 1.8mm for the rubber tire kit. No doubt, to accommodate the 30mm rear foams.
