23T pinion?

I was after this at one time but since I fitted the Kyosho one-piece pipe I have started to gear the car down again as it is now overgeared.
With the old pipe I couldn't get much more than 30k, but now it's more like 40k, and the fuel consumption has upt from 6m to 8m with a JP FX T03.

Hey guys, I know this isn't the best place to post this but if anyone is looking to get a new FW-05R and starter box for it, I have one for sale. Unfortunately, I have to move and don't have time to build it or race so this one has to go.

Sorry about the plug.

My car

Well I have a kyosho car and not sure what it is. It is a nitro with a .12 engine with a tiny exhaust on it. It has a Rally shell so it might be a rtr. It has perfex radio stuff thru-out. All white and pretty. The motor is a GX-12 and it's shaft driven. Any help guys? Not sure if it runs either. What a gift for someone to give to me huh. Sorry for wasting time.

That'll be a Kyosho Alpha GP model, and with the short exhaust could well be the first model (now on 3rd version).
It is unfortunately only a begginers car and although it can be raced, it will never be a true racer.
It'll be at home in the car parks though.

Default fw pushing

hi all.
ziggy, i tend to agree, ive spent lotsa time and money on my two fw's (ones a kawaharra and the others standared setup, but with RRR front and rear hubs)..ive given up on the fw and if any one want them cheap.. give me a buzz,
ive got the RRR and hoping that this will work for me..i race efra rules,,foams, 3 port, etc..
im not going to buy a mugen..but am starting to get very frustrated with buying kit after kit and still the mugens are better...the mrx4 nitro will be a killer and i can only hope that the rrr is better..rick bartolozzi recomends that i use the RRR and ditch the fw..
mike

Mike, that is exactly how i felt with my fw. I have changed to the RRR and I am sure you will not be sorry. I have changed and added nothing, other than gearing changes for track lengths, to the RRR and it is a winner.

I have driven my friends mugen ,never owned 1 or raced one just practice. The feeling of the RRR and mugen mtx-3 is very similar. both cars are well balanced and have even handling. I would definately compare the RRR more to a mugen than a Fw-05. My friends muge is relaxing to drive and i get the same feeling from the rrr. The mugen seems to be more fragile though, the RRR sticks close to the tough as nails kyosho quality.

I can only really coment on the RRR as I have never owned a mtx-3. The rrr pros are: fast, agile, evenly balanced, light, tough, relaxing drive, and very easy to set up. So far i have only broken 2 parts a rear shock stay on a nasty roll over(i would have expected something to break on a crash like that) and a lower rear hinge pin on the same crash. after replacing the parts the settings were not out at all. I do know severl guys that drove mugens at my track have switched after driving the RRR.
it is fast. and half the price of a mtx-3 prospect.

Try running 37 shore tires upfront and true the tire and reduce it by 2mm. That should solve the pushing problem prevalent in the 05R.

Wouldn't using smaller front tires might make the on power pushing problem worse... Agree that off power steering would help though.

With 37 shore upfront (2mm smaller) and 40 Rear, I have minimal pushing problems and plenty of steering
