With regards to 3r racing and kyosho parts, I think this all actually depends on your driving. Being a newbie and still honing my driving skills to intermediate level (i'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate). I actually broke or chipped a part of the drive cup back when I was using the stock dogbone. If I continued using it I could end up slipping the dogbone off and losing it. I still don't know what caused that part to break off.

I used to drive a tamiya evo4 and I always broke SOMETHING every weekend. Definitely not a kit for beginners. I actually threw away $100 just fixing the darn thing after every run.

ok, i'm at a loss here. I've tried rc-union.com, shopping.rcmodel.hk. I wouldn't even bother mentioning those that don't serve what I'm looking for. It appears these stores only accept paypal and some god-knows-what payment schemes. Isn't there an online store there or anywhere that offers part for the 05RR and just ask for my credit card number without having to go through all that B.S. payment systems?

I can't use Paypal coz the people there think my country is where the credit card fraud is. What the hell are they complaining about? They're getting paid no matter who's holding the card! And blaming it all on the people here is just plain lame. Probably only 5% of us here own credit cards. How hard can that be?!

Pro Shop Futaba and Champ both accept credit card with fee. PayPal ends up being cheaper though. Neither shops facilitate online transaction. You have to email them with a list of items you want and they will provide a quote include shipping and credit charges.

I have a mastercard and, oh, yes, it was issued in the PHILIPPINES. An option that doesn't show up in Paypal because they think I'm trying to rip them off. Then if I use the other option using "secure" paydollar. I have to send them an "unsecure" email containing my credit card info. Now doesn't that defeat the purpose of the second option? Why does everybody think we're trying to rip them off? It's very insulting.

my website used to be registered with godaddy. Since godaddy banned my entire country there's no way for me to even email the for a payment. oh, well, their loss and not mine. :P

bro try rc-mushroom but they will still insist to see the picture of your credit card before approving any orders that you may have i know how you feel and hopefully they would realize that they have just made a mistake for judging us

Hmm...

This could be a good business opportunity. Perhaps I could start a business being the middle man for philippine transactions and have an American or UK partner to receive the payments.

I know this has been discussed before but which ring gear is the best all a round option. I run on quite a mix of tracks from parking lot to monster permanent facilities. If I used say the 37t ring gear for the big tracks and for small tracks just went down to the smallest pinions they make would that still have some punch out of the corners? I don't think I want to be swapping ring gears all the time.

Let me guess... Too much fraud originating from your country?

As if finding parts for the FW-05RR wasn't hard enough. For sure they're not selling it in the states due to production issues or politics in the corporation.
