You need to replace the ball studs and the ball cups on a regualr basis as they do wear and create slop.

The only time I now consider running a solid front is in the wet or on a greasy track, it allows for harder braking and removes diffing out.

Default front dog bone problem

hey guys
had a problem with my front dogbone popping out on the weekend in a race...

im using front rrr hubs on a fw-05r, im also using the rrr dogbones as they are longer and dont have as much slack

however in a slight hit my dogbone jammed and the wheel got stuck ...

i think its best to upgrade to front unis so would it be best to order the front rrr unis ? as im using the rr hubs

thanks

Default what pipes do you guy suse for the fw-05r ?

i currently use the kyosho pipe and manifold kit

however the pipe has a couple of small dents in it, does this affect the performance ? or anything ?

would it be best to buy a new pipe or go with a 1 piece setup ?

thanks!

Get the Skyline one piece pipe. It cost the same as a Kyosho pipe without the manifold and performs better in my opinion.

Check if you put too much o ring or fuel line within the outdrive.
