I am racing the FW-05S in the Kyosho World Cup Expert-class. The kit includes the R-Battery-Holder and the servo-mountings are the same as with the FW-05R. To be honest i have no idea what could be missing except a special screw or something like that.

Got some 3racing-parts today as well. The titanium pillow balls have a very rough surface and will never work as smooth as they should be. Because i have my doubts about the rigity i will sell them i think.
Same for the mid-shaft made from titanium as well.

Beside this the delrin-screws made by 3racing looks quite useful. Compared with the aluminium-ones supplied with the older v-one-kits they are very smooth running.

Also i got the VSW-20 (brake-disc-holder). Very neat looking.

Any further suggestion on the rear hinge pins? Are the kfactory hardened ones better than the stock ones?

For the steel ring gears i am looking for a price below 38 US$, which is already very cheap, i know.

Does someone know a place where i can buy small stuff like screws and nuts (original kyosho ones)? The places overseas i am used to only sell "big" things.

Robert
The 3Racing and KFactory parts are not legal for the Kyosho Cup. I'd suggest that you stick with the Kyosho hop-ups.

Hi!

Yes, i know. Therefore i was looking for parts that are (nearly) the same as the kyosho parts. For example the titanium pillow balls are also offered by kyosho but cost three times as much as the 3racing ones.

As for the middle shaft: This is also a reason for selling it: It makes no sense for changing the shaft every second weekend. THe KWC is only about 6 races each season so i am racing some hobby-cups which have no limitation on tuning parts as well.

At least, to be honest, i don't care about the hinge pins. They make my car not really "faster", so i think its not unfair. And i think no one could distinguish the kyosho ones from the kafactory ones at hand.

The reglement also says "Screws, nuts, tubings etc. are free". I think the hinge pins fell under that as well as the pillow ball screws are some kind of screws.

The Kyosho Ti Pillow Balls may be more expensive, but I've had them in the car since new (16months) and I also put them in my (now sold) V-one R (after 6 of the originals snapped of in the swing arms) and as of yet I have even to bend one, let alone snap one.
I recommened the Kyosho Titanium Pillow Balls over any other.
As for hinge pins, I've never bent one with the 05, done plenty with the V-one R and V-one S, but never in the 05, in fact I've only ever broken the hop up parts, which is why I run the original shock towers.
Kfactory Pinion gears are recommended, they run freer and last loads longer than Kyosho items.

Serpent has this to say about the one piece engine mounts...

"...these blocks ensure the engine mounting points are kept aligned reducing stress on the crankcase allowing the engine to rev freer. The extra material used in the blocks, and with the addition of fins, also allow extra cooling to the crankcase and ensure the centre of gravity is kept as low as possible."
