hey guys,

i know that this car stock is undergeared. However, can the gearing be changed so that the car wont be at an disadvantage on the straight?

With the 39T optional crown gears and the shortest gear ratio, can this car tackle the 200 + ft straight ?

thanks in advance

p.s i tried to open the gear ratio file, but it didnt work for me

It is NOT undergeared stock. It's actually geared higher than the V1RR stock. If you PM me with your email address I will send you a BMP version of the gear ratio chart.

the 39T really help. However, this is what you can try: Using Mugen 22T/29T. It is a lot better. However, you will feel the buttom end reduce a lot because we have to use 22T as 1st gear. If you are using Max, Rody, those fast engines, I think they will provide you enough buttom end even 22T.

I did try this gearing with MT12, the straight is fast, but buttom is weak.

Default GEARS

FW-05R...FOAM TYRE ,ONE WAY VERSION..NEVER USED. LOOKS VERY PROMISING..THE ONLY THING I DONT LIKE ( THROUGH EXPERIANCE) IS THE ALLOY MAIN GEARS....WONT SET THE CLUTCH TOO HARD AS I RECKON THEYLL STRIP. WAITING ON THE HARDENED ONES TO ARRIVE...WILL KEEP YOU POSTED....
ABOUT GEARING THE CAR.........IT USES THE SAME CLUTCH GEARS AS THE RR EVO......I USE A 22 28(MUGEN)..ON A 120 METRE STRAIGHT...JP NS3 WORLDS AND ITS FINE.............DONT SEE WHY IT WONT ON THE FW...THE ROLL OUT CHARTS ARE SIMALER...
JUST WIND IN THE CLUTCH TO GIVE THE PUNCH OUT OF THE CORNERS....(BACK TO HARDENED GEARS)..........

Is anybody in the U.S. still having problems getting parts for the FW05R? Or is everybody just getting parts from overseas? My LHS is lagging bringing thins in.

This is for the guys using the one way front diff.....

I've just put one in my car, checked & adjusted tweak and droop etc etc.

I'm currently using 60wt front shock oil, kit springs etc etc..

I have backed off the brakes to make them less severe, but however gradually I apply them , the car wants to swap ends, and the rear end always slides to the left.

It never did this when running constant 4wd, irrespective how hard I had setup the braking.

the only way I can stop this from happening is to back the brakes off to the point that the car almost has no brakes.

I shudder to think, but could this be something to do with the "shaft drive" torque transfer?

has anybody else experienced this?

that is the nature of one way

if you have never ran with one way before, the first time running it may be tricky, as you cannot apply as much braking.

However, it really depends on the surface of the track. If the traction is good, you should be able to get decent braking even with the one way.

Two ways you can do to tackle this problem...
1. practice driving with the one way, use the brakes to only slow the car down at the end of the straight or tight hairpins

2. Get teflon or softer brake pads, this allows the brakes not to be as "grippy", and you can fine tune the braking to a point that you like

I woiuldnt worry about this, I have driven nothing but cars with front one ways since the beginning, and every car that ive driven is the same...too much braking --> the rear end goes crazy

Hope this helps
