racing4evo's trick works perfectly but if your in a rush you could still do it by turning your car upside down on your lap and move the gears till you see that hole on an angle then move your front wheels till you see the 2mm hex head. its also much easier to fit in a 2mm allen key rather than a hudy wrench. but either tools will work.

There is a good indication for the position when the screw is at about the right position: the pins of the brake-disc-holder align with the shaft of the screw-driver.

Best regards

Same trick as me, also same method used for adjusting clutch.
I have found the 2mm hex a pain to get in the slot, but have found an American A/F size hex a little smaller than the 2mm that finds the slot first time.

It might have hair around it you just can't get to it. Its more like I haven't got the pants off yet. lol Looks like I have to tear the car apart to ajust it.

I have the fw05r and even though it is in a difficult position and size,you can still adjust it.

You need good light so you can spot the hex screw spot on.

Old people with poor vision like me usually put a dab of white paint on the hex head.

If I only had access to the hole. Once I get access to that then I will see how tough the screw is to find.

Drove it during the race yesterday. Didnt have time to set it up properly, luckily there were 5 heats and manage to tweak it between heats, manage to set my fastest lap during the last heat. The car has a lot more grip and feel stiffer (due to the CF upper deck?). I had to replace the front springs from black to green (kyosho option springs) and replace the rear springs from yellow to blue. I am currently using 3k oil for the rear diff, will try 5k since there is so much traction.

This helps the minimize the push when exiting from corners. The car definitely feels more stable and more nimble with the conversion kit and saves about 18g of weight.
