Looks really nice!

The only disappointment seems to be that you have to unscrew twice as much screws to remove the radio-plate than before. I think ist was a nice feature when you was cleaning the car. Now you have to disassemble nearly the whole front-syspension to remove it.

well both ball cups appear to be touching (standard setup). so how are you adjust the length for toe in/out?

most people i have seen have switched the ball cups and rods for mugen or other brands.

They are actually one turn out from touching.
The front has to be narrowed when using GQ wheels as they have a 1 mm offset, and I normally run the front at 198mm with the rear at 199mm.

When I put the Rubber tyres or Wets on with the ING wheels and reduce the camber, the steering arms are then about 7/8 turns from touching.

The current steering arms haven't caused me any problems in the 16 months I've been running this car.

Default Radio broken

Hi

I was at the race track this evening, we have THE CORVETTE CUP going on this week at our track. Sponsored by GM motors, the thing is that you need to use only Corvette Shells... at this race. rest is all kyosho cars.....any model.

Alrite.. now i am just a begginer and was leading for some time till i had tune pipe problems.. as it kept coming out and handling is fine now....after a lot of setups. But this guy he hit my car bamm and the receiver just poped !! it opened up but still working.. .... Was wondering if there is any way to protect the rx as the kit comees without any box for it.

My tune pipe keeps coming out... i am thiking of getting the RDLOGICS T 2 pipe for my TR - T engine.. is that ok.. since its a one pcs. I think it will hold on better than the two pcs.

any other pointers from the PRO's here would be appreciated.

Regards
Aziz

Default receiver

If the receiver thing worries you that much you could get the FW05S top deck that completely encases the receiver/battery etc.

The tune pipe is all about fitting properly with gasket and zip ties,
so have another go at that before spending bucks on a one peice
pipe.Having said that the one peice works a treat and would fix the problem.

Will this part of the FW05 S fit on the R ?
I think to do this I would need to change a lot of parts .

IF you do know the part nos. let me know.

You might consider forum-mate questions/reply from Mike to Josh Cryul ( running prototype of FW05RR at NAT US) - on page 99 -in this thread.

Then you might need to read kyosho websites www.kyosho.co.jp
and translate the Japanese website to English by Babel Fish website. Just checked what kyosho claim about FW05RR.

FW05RR - Japanese

And Josh Cryul comment on V1RRR against FW05RR
V1 or Fw?
