get the FW05-S

you can upgrade it to a pro car later on as ppl have mentioned

the v one S is a great begginer car and only that

the FW05S has the potential to become a race machine!

Just added the RR conversion kit. Looks much nicer, particularly on the front end.
Noticed that you need to put alot of spacers in to use the inner holes on the new front shock tower.
Does anyone know what the difference is between the VZ004C and the conversion kits VZ004H? All the holes seem to be in the same spots, so I dont know why they are included.
For the cost, Kyosho could have included a FW-05RR sticker set!

Not sure what you paid, but I got in 2 conversion kits from Japan, and it came to 70 inc postage.
Now before I found out about buying overseas I had to use the hopeless UK importer, which used to take me 4/5 months to supply a part, and for just a single Carbon Top Deck for a V-one R cost me 85.

Hi Nimo

Would you know the link to calulate the percentage of diff silicones need to be put to reach certain thickness of oil.

I had a link from the http://www.gesilicones.com/ but now i cant seem to find..

Actually the reason i need this is that i want to change the diff oil in my fw to 10k in the front and 5 k in the back.

The only available oils are 30k and 1k

this calculator will tell you how much parts of 30 and 1k you need to mix to get 10 k ...

cheers

The VZ004H is a hardend version of the old VZ004 that came with the VoneR. The VZ004C came with the RR Evo and FW05 series. The VZ004CH is the hardend version of that. I haven't seen the conversion kit yet but would guess it comes with the CH.

Hi Empty..

I just converted my Fwo5 to the RR... Parts nos which come in the conversion kit..

VS023 SWING SHAFT
VSO37 FRONT UPPER BRACKET
VS038 FRONT UPPER SUS. SHAFT
VS039 CARBON DECK
VZ004C REAR SUS ARM SET - not the vz004ch you said.
VZ 013 WHEEL SHAFT
VZ 201 & 202 - FRONT AND REAR HUBS

Hope this clarifies...

Also, just check the setting data sheet.... the drawings show hole 1 but the sheets shows hole no.. 2 - front shock tower

and hole no. 3 in the rear shock tower

I think they just used the drawings not the actuals printed there..

Cheers
ZiiZo

Thanks uaerc,

With the conversion kits new front shock tower, if you connect the front shocks to the innermost holes, hole #1, the spring pre tension ring rubs on the shock tower, near the lower screw. I have put about 5mm of spacers in to move the shock away from the tower. Did you need to do this as well?

I am using the 2nd hole in the front shock as mentioned in the setupguide..i noticed what u said about the first hole as in the second hole the shock is mm away from the tower... why dont u just try the 2nd hole as said and later on make the move , if it doesnt suit your style.....usually i am happy with the stock setup sheet that comes with the kit....till i get racing where in our case we have to use softer springs and lighter weights oils front one way's are a no no here....i am using the softer silver springs with a lot of camber and toe in at the rear...and normal blacks in the front.. as we have a highly slippery track....

The local champ here was very impressed with my ride and adviced me to use the 10k up in the front diff. and 5k in the rear.... with even softer springs and approx..6- 7mm ride heights.... and he is quite good with that setup......

cheers

Default Kawahara center conve..

Hi Nimo

Just need to clarify something ........

THe centre conversion from karwahara has 39T gears or 37T ?

Second if i used this set.........

would it be faster then the 37T Kyosho gears given that the gearing is 1st 22/50, 2nd 27/45.

cheers

kawahara has
Front: 17/45 - 2.647
Rear:17/46 - 2.706

37T
front and rear : 13/37 - 2.846

so kawahara gears have abit more top end compared to kyosho's 37T gears
