Just need to know how to used the advantages of the FW and the right driving style for better lap times.

On the Kawahara tires bit, yes the front seems to have more offset than any of the other makes (GQ, Jaco, Ellegi) the back is definitely more by 1 or 2mm. I reconfirmed that last night. swapped tires on the the setup board and the front/rear width changed.
One thing you will often see from newer racers going around the infield, they often use too much throttle when you almost never really need to hold full throttle if the infield isn't huge. If you were to drive through the infield without going past 75% throttle, you might notice that with your car more settled (and still going just as fast or faster) that by the end of five minutes you'll see some gained time, as well as lower fuel consumption, less tire wear and fewer crashes. Still open it up as needed, but treat that trigger finger with guarded respect so you don't have to struggle to get the right driving line.

Thanks for the tips especially the 75% throttle control at the infields. Will try it next time out on the track and check lap times.

Would the front spool really help in giving more tighter lines? What's the part no. or will putting 100k oil in the front diff give similar effect?

That is the optional steering plate right? I used to use it... bent it one day and went back to the original steering plate. The change is subtle, and trying both, I don't mind the fixed ackerman position of the stock plate because it is a tad easier to drive. If you really want to tweak your ride to be as fast as possible, and you think a change in your ackerman might work, I say go for it. But it isn't needed.

And yes, I found position A to increase the turn-in a bit...

Yes i would agree with Im2lazy... Initially i ran with stock front upper+lower arms and the stock steeing plate.. was having a bit or difficulty turning in. After i changed to the optioned graphite steering plate with 'A' ackerman setting and also the option graphite arms which are stiffer - i have one of the best steering controlled FW05s at the local track. Good investment and makes driving a breeze. Would highly recommend.
