Is anyone here from Hong Kong? How's the SARS right now? This could threaten my trip next month.
Directly from Japan, www.ishiimokei.com. I was in HK last week and there was no SARS yet. A couple of cases in China though.

Default FW-05R Gear Ratio Chart

See attached. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the gear ratio of the FW-05R. Perhaps this chart can help. The blue highlighted one is the stock setup.

Hmm...I think you can download the japanese language support from adobe for free. I do have a jpeg version but the file is too big and I don't think i can upload it. pm me with your email address and i will email it to you.

Warning,
Stay away from the 3 racing universals. I bought front and rear uni's and I went back to doggies in the front after bending one front and shattering the other. both incidents were minor and this should not have happened. It seems that thier uni's are made from a cheap metal. I will replace with kyosho's parts only.

My 3racing front universals were fine all the while.

Which area of yours broke or bent?

becos of the price u pay for 3racing or other names as compared to kyosho's UJ's and also depending on what type of barrier or walls u hit......no doubt the Kyosho's are tough cos I hve them n I only use them during races.....as for 3racing they are not that bad after all mine still last for quite some time....even after some nasty hits and flips.....to each his own......cheers

Do you actually crash while your lapping everyone else?
Let's see if me having a broken arm actually made a difference by making me horrible, and if my healed hand will be able to keep up.



I need this car!!!

Is this car good at High speed corner entry?

For e.g, at the end of the straight...is it able to corner V. Fast given that it has a good setup
