i personally just keep messing with it until it doesn't suck...

but seriously, i think the only way to decide is to try. the stock setting is usually pretty good to start, then you'd compensate for things like size of tire, size of in field, etc. how you tune your engine matters too, as that affects your power band and 2nd speed kick in point.

Anybody interested in the bits left from my FW-05R?

I have the 705 chassis, the centre conversion and the alloy centre bulk with all the drive train plus the roll bar.

The rear has the Mugen hubs and most of the bits.

The shock are missing as I have stripped all the stuff off that I can use on the RRR. everything thats left is for sale.

Anybody?

Ill be away for a few weeks so ill check back later.

Cheers

aluminium front stabiliser: I assume you meant the aluminum front anti-roll bar holder? This is a must as the stock plastic ones will not hold your droop setting.

aluminium brake stopper: Another important upgrade as the pins comes out of the stock plastic one easily. But the aluminum brake holder does wobble after awhile. You'd be better off getting the K-Factory one if you can find it.

aluminium steering servo saver: Never tried it. I don't think you need it though.

The best upgrade if you haven't already got it is the harden steel ring gears.

Default aluminium steering servo saver

I upgraded the servo saver, but only used the arm the connects to the steering servo (top left one). Its not lighter and the only reason was the origional plastic one didn't stay fixed when tightening the servo saver spring.

I changed to the 3racing center bulk head, it's pretty nice.

About the front droop screws, the front case has bent where the screws srew in, no more droop settings for me.

i think the Alu Rear arm mounts is a good option too, I've broken 3 of those (bad bearing had me crashing often- good excuse huh? )

Center CVDs isn't a good option, the pins have broken several times, I like to use brakes.

37t ring gears, way good up-grade, very happy w/ it, run the smaller pinions on small tracks and still hangs in there.

Brake upgrade is also very good. don't remember the model number, but even though it's a couple of bucks, brakes are awsome.

get the rear arm mounts, brake stopper, front sway bar, front lower arm mounts. stay with the plastic servo saver you need something to give instead of your servo getting trashed. brake upgrade is a must with the soft pads but be carefull if you run a one way. use the abs feature if your radio has it. mine works great.

The lower mounts are great to have especially if you are crash prone

I find that lightening the transmission gives the biggest bang for the buck. Try getting the light weight clutch bell, titanium center shaft, lightened 2 speed adapter & first speed holder and Kfactory pinions. The rest of the stuff are just for cosmestic purposes and seriously doubt if it will improve the performance of this car.

And if you can find one, the Square titanium 2 speed shaft.

Skyline VR12! It works better than the black Kyosho 5.2mm pipe and the Kyosho pipe was good!
