Yes, I run at Revelation. I let my friend try the car and he thought it handled really good compared to his RR Evo. This car is seriously geared too low. The new track layout does help also.


You should adjust the tie rods for toe. They will pop off before they break.

I modified the steering arms to get the length i wanted with a 199 track width. Just used spacers.

So you kept the steering rod stock, screwed in the pillow ball screws, then put wheel spacer between the bearing and the wheel nut like the rear set up? Thanks.

No, you would need shorter doggies to do that.... I unwound the ball ends on the steering arms, and made 1mm spacer to go between them.

That's an interesting surface for the track. Is that a temporary or permanant track? Where is it in Singapore? Maybe I will stop by next time I visit.

Has anybody else found the car needs a softer rear spring?

JordanC: Those rear tyres on DoctorJ FW05R with orange wheel are GQ tyres, not too sure about the shore. I used 40 shore all round during the final, qualifying I used try both 35 and 37 shore, but they wear really fast especially the 35.

As for spring I usually run harder spring for the rear, so that my car will have more steering. For this race I was running Kyosho Red 4517 (front) and Blue 5317 (rear).

Haven't tried different springs yet. Thought the rears felt ok.

On the Kyosho website where they give an overview of the "foam tire version" of the car they list the use of the rear Gold springs and the "long" black springs in the front which are basically the rear stock springs. I had already done this to my car with the exception of leaving the short black springs in the front. It helped out tremendously and I was running 42F/40R. The use of the longer front springs sounds like the hot ticket since they would inherently be softer than the shorter short blacks. I'm putting the car away for the time being until I can find a 22tooth pinion. I'm just not fast enough with the car with the stock gearing and 39t ring gears.

You mean to actually try the rear springs on the front?
