jeffreylin,

it was fun racing with you today at silver stone. Next time ill try to show up earlier. Why dont you try using a Novarossi pipe to compliment it with your engine, you do have a Nova engine?

I think the Kyosho pipe is fine. I just need to break-in my engine more--it's still tight after maybe 10 tanks. I suppose it's a good thing as that engine will probably last a long time. I can probably lean the mixture a little more and it will bring my top end up so I can keep up with you!

Nova's pipe can't be used on FW05R unless you don't mind that the pressure line is fixed under your pipe.......

hi dino, I'm currently making a pipe for my STS D5 (standard ports), any suggestions on "best matching specs" for the engine? (seen your posts in STS thread)

btw, what's better, an alumunium pipe or metal pipe? (performance wise),.. and can a hand-made metal-pipe be made legal to international races?

did some versions (other model refinement and matching, and my own design) for OS TR .12 and Novarossi, results were good, only not sure about conformity to regulations (stinger diameter is 5.5mm and 1.5cm in length)


sorry guys, a bit OOT here

Hi,

According to IFMAR Rules 1.8; They don't limit the material but metal is heavier than aluminum. Also aluminum has better cooling ability. Cooling effect is very important,if the pipe is too hot the gasket will be roasted. Good luck.

Rule #1.8
A muffler of approved double chamber design, including silencer chamber must be fitted having the following dimensions:

Tail pipe maximum internal diameter* 5.20mm.

Tail pipe minimum length 10.00mm.

The tail pipe must be oriented on or below the horizontal.

* This dimension includes a tolerance to account for manufacturing variations in commercially available tubing

Hey Joehwee, what diff oil weight are you running in the rear? My FW05R is running good except that it understeers on power and coming out of corners. My set up:

Front:
Tire 37
Shock oil kyosho 50W
Spring stock black
Shock position middle using the optional graphite shock towers
Caster stock (20 degrees?)
Camber 1 (I need to increase this as the outside is wearing faster than the inside tire)
Toe 0 degree
One-way

Rear:
Tire 40
Shock oil kyosho 50W
Spring stock gold
Shock position inside using the optional graphite shock towers
Camber 3
Toe 2.5 degree
Diff oil kyosho 7000

Was told to switch to 30000 weight diff oil. What do you think?

5 stars is japanese methinks. you can get them in hong kong. shimo is sort of the hop up division of kyosho. they are sold as kyosho parts with kyosho part number.
