The Rubber O-ring works good as is. I haven't had a diff leak with this design in my FW-05R or my RRR. The old V-One RR Evolution used a paper gasket and I remember having to seal it with RTV to stop it from leaking. I don't think you could use a paper gasket anyway.

my diffs used to leak only because the o-ring wasn't seated properly when assembling the cases together. i ca glued the o-ring to the diff cup at several points and it never leaked again.

I have had comments on why so much water proofing is needed, and why my car always looks dirty.
Maybe this picture from the UK racing scene will give you a clue

Default New to the FW-05R

Please forgive me if this question is answered somewhere in the previous 142 pages of posts.

I keep seeing FW-05RR. My box just says FW-05R. Is there any difference? If so what?

Where have you guys found to be the quickest parts depot with the selection you need to keep it on the track?

Thanks for any hints!

THe FW05RR is the latest model, most noticable difference is the front upper suspension mounting points (see picture), it also uses the V1RRR hubs.

Default Pipe

Folks, I've been running the Kyosho 5.2mm black pipe on my FW05RR and have been quite happy with it. It works well and gives me plenty of top end. They only thing I don't like about it is the coupler which is prone to come apart in a crash.

So when it did come apart this afternoon during practice, my friend at the track gave me a Skyline V12 to try. Boy was it an eye opener! I had probably 15-20% more top end with this pipe. I thought my car was fast enough at the straight (Novarossi NS3) and now it's absolutly ballistic! And it's not just the top end, the low end had more power as well! I was surprised that a pipe could make that much of a difference.

By the way, the car was working real good too. I had so much steering I had to turn it down and add toe-in in the rear--something I almost never did with the FW05R.
