May be you would share your current setup and tips?

thank's
I have done that before only for others to say it was wrong.
My set up is for UK conditions which allows for Rain, Grass Run Offs, Low Ground Temperature, Purpose Built Tracks, EFRA Rules, so they will not work on cars run in the USA or AUS, hence not being able to use a One-Way.

Gears are available in 37t/38t/39t/40t but I found the 37t to work best for me.
Whoa! $38??!!! I think i'll pass on that for now until my spare breaks down.

Your choice, but as you said earlier:
'cheaper actually means expensive and expensive is cheaper'

Yep, but I've already bought the ring gear set 2 weeks ago. I didn't know the existence of the part you mentioned. I would've went for it, of course. For sure, next time I'll get one. I only bought one set for the moment. I don't even know if it'll wear down just as fast since I don't really race that much. I only race 2x a month.

I have to get my parts via post from HK as there is no longer a UK Kyosho importer.
I use 7 different sites, all Paypal approved.
I sometimes use pro-s-futaba in Japan for those hard to get parts.

Hehe... and i was beginning to think i was the only one with a dilemma. If there was only a way to combine their orders to one so we could save on shipping.

I noticed it too that it was hard to find one site that was complete on all the parts we need.

I think that the only hop up parts I'll be putting on my FW05RR will be a better brake disk and and the 37 tooth steel gear which are a must have. Save your money and buy some Kyosho spare parts as some 3 racing stuff especially drive shafts are a waste of money.

Try reading the posts, you will get your answer, or another answer, 3racing lasted 2 races while Kyosho still going after 50+ races.

Some time ago (actually on the Tower Hobbies Web Site) saw a set of Kyosho blue gears for the 05r that were taller than the .08 22/27 that is common now. Was that used to help out at that time when the 37t ring gear wasn't availible? Anybody know what the part number was? I think is was 23 or 24 and 28. Maybe it is not really needed now that we have 37t ring gears.
