Default FW05-RR

Guys,

To ask a silly question, does the FW05-RR come with steal gears in the diff or the alloy ones? I remember when the car first came out there was an issue with the gears stripping etc.

Yes they are steel now.

I thought they still come with Alloy. You can buy the steel ring gears but cost you about $50 each

They come supplied with Cast Steel diff rings, but these tend to strip.
You need to upgrade to the Machined Steel diff rings, these barely wear and greatly reduce the drivetrain drag resulting in a faster car.
I would recommend fitting the 37T Machined Steel rings, even if you are running the pull start GS15 motor.

Have any of you guys tried running staggered ring gears at the front and rear?? i.e. 40 ring gear in front and 39 ring gear at the rear?

I have tried it and it seems to give me more overdrive at the front and thus more even tire wear from front to rear. Wonder if anyone else has tried and their findings to share.

Had the car really dialed in during last weekend's club race and even gave some of the RRRs a good run for their money given that it was a kyosho dominated race.

Track was wide with about a 200 feet back straight and fluid in-field with couple of banks here and there.

It was probably one of my sweetest race ever if only my engine and clutch didn't fail me. but having said that the car was a dream.

Hey

Thanks for the info-- Sweet.. will get that for sure - Is your graphite steering plate a Kawahara or some other brand. As Kyosho makes only the blue alloy one right ? or may be i am just a bit outdated on the parts....

Thanks again

No the option graphite steering plate is from kyosho. can't remember the part no. though.

One for the fellas.

Burnt a throt servo last weekend and was told that you had to add double spacers below the servo ears to lift it higher so that it's not too close to the chassis which emits a lot of heat and killed the servo. Heard this from an FW05 guru. Apparently he burnt 4 servos in 2 months before he learnt this. Interesting but expensive finding.

Also, discovered that i mutilated the back ring gear and small gear in the drivetrain. Had shim the small gear but still it got damaged. This is the option 39 steel ring gear. Any idea how this could happen even with the shimming. Was it too tight? SHould there be no freeplay at all between the Ring and small gear? Help help...

Spacers on throttle - yes that is correct, I used some little red O rings to also reduce the vibration.

Rear diff - not heard of anyone stripping the Machined Steel ones, you sure they are the Machined Steel ones and not the Cast Steel ones?

I actually went through 3 throtle servo's this month. Wasn't sure why until now-thanks. I bought a really high torque servo and haven't had the problem since, but I will space it a bit now.

by running a smaller ring gear are you lowering the internal ratio and essentially gearing up?
