The drive cups are new. All the FWs seemed to have it to some degree.

On this particular track, I qulified fifth out of about thirty or so and was the best Kyosho. I was bettered by an MTX and three 710s and not by much. It is just annoying and probably adds to rear tyre wear. Has anyone tried anti squat?

Which drive cups are you referring to? I was referring to ones on the wheel hubs and the ones where it attaches to the rear diff.

CVs all round and the diff out drives are replaced when worn, this is not a hacks car, this is not the problem, it's more like an oscilation that sets in under very hard accelleration? I normally use shock oils between 350 and 600 wt. The 600 damped it out a little better than the softer oil but did not remove the effect.
Does anyone know if the ball diff for the FW04 can be addapted to the FW05? I'm thinking that perhaps a slipper in the diff might help.

Could the chassis be too flexible?
Maybe it's that "BLOODY RABBIT" in your avatar . . . they hop a bit.

Seriously though . . . we used to get some bouncing at Lilydale and harder rear springs helped, I reckon. Also think the harder rear diff oil helped.
Hadn't thought of harder shock oil and bigger piston holes to go with it, but maybe that might start to upset the F/R balance?
Is the body scraping? It was in that video from Franky, wasn't it?

Try running dog bones in the rear instead of the CV's.
I had CV's in my V-one R and had hopping rear, changed the rear back to dogs and the hopping stopped.

Your car was hopping too Gav, and Cliff's was worst of all. As for the body scraping this will happen on 55mm tyres.

True - you reckon the bigger holes and harder oil is worth a try?
There was a lot wrong with Cliffies car, I reckon.
And you won't be runing 55mm tyres at the new track - not for long anyway.
Don't tell DC.

Rob.
What about putting thinner rear diff oil in gear so inside wheel does not have as much drive.

Sounds like your diff oil is too light. Go to harder diff oil and it will remove the rear end hoping.

Default Flywheel diameter

Anyone have problems with the flywheel extending beyond the bottom of the chassis when installed? It's the one that came with the hop-up version kit.

No I haven't had that problem or heard of it. Are you sure it's protruding past the chassis? Can you take a straight edge and place it along the bottom? If the flywheel doesn't interfere with the straght edge you are fine.

Default rebound (stop)

hey fellaz. quick question on adjusting rebound stop.

the manual says to make sure the front set screws are even, then adjust the stabilzer cam. (setting data sheet ver1.00)

but the section on 'how to read settings data sheet' (same sheet) states that rebound stop is only adjusted with the set screw.

which one is correct?

is this (rebound stop) the same as droop?

thanks,

only 12 more pages to go...
