So I dont know yet, but it could seem that RC-Union has ripped me off for 102$.

I placed an order on Wed, sent the money via paypal, and as of today its still listed as "Pending" with no replies to email or any movement on the order.

Not getting a good feeling about that.

Stay cool!

I ordered 4 sets of titanium hinge-pins (3racing-ones) with a set-price of 4 us$ each (obviously a mistake, correct price is 14 us$ each). Send them the money via paypal (22,50 us$ with shipping). When they noticed the price was wrong they made me a special offer (12$ each) but i declined and asked them to re-send the money. - They did that.

I don't think they will rip you.

Regards
Robert

Don't worry Clegg, last week was the Chinese new year holiday. Much like Christmas everything was closed. Today is the first day back to work for most people. I am sure you will hear from them soon.

Tested out the FW-05RR conversion at a local track (small tight track) and the car handle great .Using the Kawahara center conversion i was able to run 55mm tyres in the front and 57 mm tyres in the rear and the car handle great with plenty of speed and acceleration.

Default FW05r

I've been running the RRR for the last few months and think it's great. I thought about selling my FW so I took it out and cleaned it out. Since there was a race Saturday night I decided to run it. It was cool and the traction was just about perfect--enough steering but no one was traction rolling. The FW handled GREAT. It's still 0.2 seconds off my RRR pace but more consistent. I found the FW to be easier and relaxed to drive as it just glide around the corner so smoothly off throttle. Whereas I had to work on the throttle around the corner with the RRR. This chassis was the 05R, not yet converted to 05RR and it felt really good. And I decided I will keep the car and not sell it as originally planned.

I've got to say again I just don't think there is a gearing problem with the car. I find it to have a lot of punch off the corner but does not necessarily accelerate faster after the initial push due to it's heavier drive train. I was geared 23/50 28/45 with the 37T ring gear and I was definitely overgeared. I moved down to 22/50 27/45 and it still felt a little overgeared for a large track. It was still accelerating at the end of the straight. I would try 22/50 27/46 or 26/45 next. My tires were 57mm front and rear and I was running the black 5.2mm Kyosho pipe with a Nova NSR3.

I came in 4th for the race. Could've had 3rd but my engine stalled after a collision with a 1/8 and damaged my pipe. It was a fun race with 1/10 and 1/8 running together for 20 minutes with the 1/8 giving 5 laps to 1/10.
