I have seen somewhere a hand held electric starter that spins a rubber wheel and you just do it by hand instead of using a bump box. I think I saw it in a store not sure how good they are though or what brand they are. I just been having a search on net for a bit to see if can find something online but no luck.

Depending on your motor, there is this product that replaces a pull-cord unit, but you may need to raise the motor a fraction for clearance.

Okay, so i suppose there's such a thing as a rubber attachment to the end of a rotostart or something. Gotta check if my lhs has them. Thanks.

When you install the throttle servo used some shock lower o-rings between the servo and the radio plate on each screw, and don't do them up too tight.
This is to prevent the vibration from damaging the throttle servo, and also lifts the servo off the chassis a little.

Hi there everyone. I'm running stock class this year (FW-05T totally stock and rubber tyres). I need to get a few replacement parts (gears, hubs, fuel tank etc.) but prices here in Aus. at the LHS are outrageous. What on-line stores do you guys use to get kyosho spares from?

will do, I also have a very soft rubber sheet that I will try out between the receiver and chassis.

Thanks

Try this. This is a USA website

www.shopkyosho.com Items shipped from this website come from a hobby shop nearest you, that will have the parts you want in stock.

Or If you like Look up PNP Hobbies . He is in the 321 area code.

Just wondering if there's any guys out there wanting to sell their FW05rr spare parts.

It seems that alot of people are moving to RRRs... just trying my luck.

RR parts are really hard to find...

Thanks.

Only problem with www.shopkyosho.com is it's not a world wide thing - they don't ship outside the US.
