Default Parts

Hi guys,

I've been running my fw-05r for approx 5 months now. Have chimed in a couple of times but mainly been following the thread. I logged into Kyoshoamerica the other day and didn't see the FW-05RR available nor parts. Do you guys also have trouble finding parts locally? Will this change, and will I have to convert to RR version, doesn't seem to be many R parts around any more.

I have a question about the RR rear, is the shock mount config diff, the reason why I ask is I tried to mount the 3R RR rear shock tower and it doesn't seem to fit. What do I need to convert?


On another note, I have Ofna 120 wght diff oil in the front diff, makes it tough to turn(diff action, not car turning) and the car really handles well w/ this set-up, even on tight technical tracks.

Thanks,
Havy

Hi impalabob64.. I would like to try that too. What diff oil did you use in combination with that locked front? Thanks in advance!

The shock tower part #VS026 is the same for both the 05r and 05rr. My guess is there is a problem with the 3r part.

havy, if you have the part #'s call kyosho america and talk to customer service. they have parts for the fw05r and rr. i just got parts from them 2 weeks ago. use the toll free #. have any of you guys tried the evolva springs? i have them on my car and its perfect. the light blue springs. 30 wt front and 50wt rear with the 1.2 pistons.

i use 30,000 in rear diff,hey guys i see alot of you want to convert to the rr,the only thing that you need is just add the rrr frt hubs,as Nimo stated the rr rear hubs change the handling.

didn't you hear marcos - bobby's car is dialed in

so softer frt (softer spring, shock oil, and slanted shock angle, coupled with A ackerman) - gives better on power steering?

Marcos is right ,i checkout the traction, then i decide what i think would work. i really dont like 35 but, if traction is not to the car,s liking 35 on the rear only.Right now i love running the jaco nitroshoes 38shore frt an rear 59 frt 60rear. 39t ringgears i save my 37,ringgears for the bigtracks.i run my tires alittle taller in rear the is for when power through a swiper.
