I think there is less material on the end of the arm so that you can screw in the pillow ball more. We had to cut down the front pillow ball in the rear arm a few mm to make the car 200mm with the old arms. Otherwise the rear is too wide.

Ran my Fw today with the RR conversion and the Kawahara center conversion and it ran very well with the set up suggested with the conversion. The car was well planted and stuck like glue.(even with the track not been prep) The Kawahara gave this car awsome speed and it was still pulling at the end of the straight. Still fine tuning this engine but my friend "impalabob64" is working on my "other motor" and it should be ballistic!! I might be able to keep up with him

Can you now see that although geared right up, it does not feel like it's overgeared

Like I said, with the Kawahara center conversion or 37T ring gears, you're running the speed you should have been running in the first place. 40T and 39T gears suck on anything but tiny tracks.

the Kawahara is the way to go but the 37's should be okay also.

Just been looking at the exploded views of the base model FW05T and was surprised how many of the FW05R parts are used, and also how easy it would be to convered to a RR (or would that be RT ?)

FW05T Exploded Views

It's a PDF file of just over 4mb, so hope you have broadband

or RRT!

NiMo does your conversion makes the gear noise still, or does it go a way after a while?

Thanks

Not sure, I think it's still there, could be I've got so used to it that I don't hear it anymore, will have to listen next time I run.

Default RR Conversion Kit Manual

Hi All,

I heard that Kyosho has stopped making the RR conversion kit. Does anyone have a copy of the conversion kit manual so I can just pick up the parts separately?

Thanks!!!
