The RRR front hubs are a must for rubber though as they allow more steering lock but does not throw the rear end.
NiMo: Thank you... advice always appreciated.

Default First run

I have just bought a slightly used FW05R and pulled it down and rebuilt how I would normally set up my cars.
Well,this thing is a snack to drive,fast,direct and precise
ON A CARPARK THAT IS.
Now looking forward to hitting the track and see what it is really like.
Any set up sheets or advice would be great.
Thanks

Default SOLID FRONT AXLE

I had a chance today to test the car with RRR fornt hubs and a spool in the front. I liked it a lot! The car had steering where I lacked it with the oneway but it was still stable transitioning from on power to off power steering inputs. Only thing I changed was the rear roll center and 2 deg. of toe out in the front. The track was high bite and the car was pretty much flat throughout the track. It was faster than the RRR today.

I think it could use a couple of changes, first one being increasing the viscosity of the rear diff oil from 10,000 to 20,000, second: decreasing front toe out to 1 deg. and lastly changing out the rear hubs for RRR rear hubs with 4mm spacers on the camber link.

I have the Mugen rear hubs and it makes a real difference. I use 3 mm spacers.

Did you try the one way with the RRR front hubs? I changed over the hubs and got a lot more steering but still use the one way. Its the hubs that make the difference. I havent tried a spool yet

Cheers

Yes, I had used the RRR hubs with the oneway. This setup is just as good but easier to drive.

www.rc-union.com has the pipe. I have to say that you should think about the RD Turbo II pipe. It's half the price and better than the 5.2mm pipe from Kyosho.

Hey i tried the front spool this weeekend as well, without the RRR front hubs though. Car feels like junk! to much understeer... i know setup could cure it but im just very comfortable with the one way. i can really hug the corners and still drive fast.

If your running foam use the RRR rear and front hubs.

Change the ring gears to 37T

Cheers

hey Ziggy
may i ask why you have to use RRR rear arms for the RRR hub conversion?
Finally my supplier has access to these so i ordered the Front and Rear RRR hubs and rear arms

Rob
may i ask why with the 28 pinion that your motor ran hotter? as im thinknig about putting my kawahara center conversion back in to lean the motor off more as to my very little amount of knowledge i thought the more that the engine is at top speed the hotter the engine would get so adding more gears to bring the top speed in later would result in a cooler running engine?
