Well I got the wrench work done on my FW-05RR today!

Its now all set for racing, just need the body. The cars been ballanced to have a 50/50 weight split and cross weight (a good starting point to learn the new car).

Its setup pretty much to the stock setup and I am going to tune from there. I am also putting the stock springs back all around and tuning from there. I will also be putting in the locked front diff at some point. But its at a solid level for starting the season off at this point. I need to see what the new track we are running this summer will look like before I do anything drastic

also you can see I have no power switch, didnt want to deal with the wire, and the fact that the switch had a chance of hitting the ground in hard cornering wasnt something I liked. I just put a small 1mm socket head screw into the power plug so its easy to pull out of the reciever.

Have been doing some major testing today (at last the weather is on my side).
I have been concentrating on getting more front end bite without the over aggresive turn in nature I found using a stiffer front roll bar, what I have found is that the RR front end behaves in the opposite way to what the R front end did, and have ended up running 60wt front oil with the shock uppers mouted on the outside holes, this now give more power on steering through the sweepers whilst still keeping the relaxed nature of the car, the result being a car that is half a second a lap faster while actually feeling slower to drive.

Hope this helps those still hunting that front end bite

Is there any difference between these two rear arms other than the other being made of carbon composite? VZ004C and VZ004CH?

If you are looking at cheap stuffs, none can be cheaper if you order it from Japan. Its much cheaper even with the S&H taken into account. Try RC-Champ, great service and pricing!

I know some manufacturers are producing softer arm suspensions as options. Looks like the CH version is harder. I guess softer = less rigid = suspension works better? Harder arms for high traction tracks?
