If i was to go with the FW05RR would you guys think that if it had the Kawahara centre conversion and 1st 22T/ 2nd 27T,28T pinions would it be able to handle a 60-65metre straight? No just handle it but also keep up with the other belt cars? or would the motor get hot and i would need to back off abit?

Thanks
i just installed the center conversion that i got from ziggy12345 and i will be testing it out this week!, at my local track the straight is about 230 ft and i had plenty of speed with the 39th front and rear and with a 27/45 2nd gear combo.

just trying something new with the conversion plus it was a great deal!

TRAJ, if you really have problems with gearing, go the Mugen Centax clutch route. They have 29T 2nd gear pinion paired up with a 39T crown gears. Plus it's much cheaper than the Kawahara centre conversion route.

But honestly, 60 to 65 m straight is not that huge...
Do you mean go with the whole mugen clutch or just the clutch bell with 22/29?

And are you sure that 39T will be enough?

kyosho also has the 37t that should be plenty and they also are releasing a 38t

Yes, I meant just the Mugen clutchbell with the Mugen 0.8 module pinions screwed onto it...

45T spur paired up with 29T pinion and with 39T corwn gears would give you a FDR of 4.65. If that is not enough, what is?

The reason i ask is that i had my FW05R on this track for the 1st time and i had a Murnan NS engine with 22/28 pinions and the clutch was a MTX3 centax and it was reving out in the middle of the str8 with 39t crown gears

Maybe it could have been the pipe? it was a RD logics turbo II

Would the VSW008 5.2 Muffler & Manifold Set be better?

TRAJ, again, what pipe and manifold are you using? The ratio is not the problem, it's your pipe.

I have not tried the RD but I know that VSW008 works.

any idea whats wrong with it? (sorry to be off topic)
TRAJ,
JordanC was telling me yesterday at our Vic. Titles that he'd gone down to ~ 6-10k in the rear diff of his RRR . . . . something like that, anyway. He also said that Simon Camelleri had done the same thing. You might know that Simon won the event.

Also, doing a search on some of rjl's recent posts re the FW gearing will give you some answers, I'd think. The Lilydale straight is about 70 metres, downhill and his FW handles that easily with all his Kawahara bits.
