Anybody have a proper gear ratio for this kit? I tried to download from one of the earlier posted but couldn't manage to view it. Anybody thanks? Seem like the steel bevel ring is very popular now and it is out of stock in my LHS and rcmodel too..

You might need to update your Acrobat reader with japanese fonts before you can view it. if it still doesn't work PM me with your email address and I will send you a jpeg version (too big to post here).

I hadn't even crashed when it gave out (indeed I hadn't crashed that whole qualifier) and the teeth just chipped! The rear diff bevel gear is perfectly fine... go figure.

Oh well, hardened bevel gears here I come.
dont worry, you are not alone !

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
thx dino, gotta fit a smaller tail pipe then...
indeed, the pipe is a bit hotter (when chromed), bit I'm currently using heat-resistant black paint (normally used for turbo intercoolers and piping), solved the heat problem.

I can use richer setting to achieve same performance (as leaner carb w/ kyosho pipe) with the last pipe I designed, good for very long mains.

two more question, does IFMAR regulate on noise too? and lastly, will STS D5 be good on tight and winding track? (will fit one on my FW)

thanks Dino

hehe, quite funny,... for my OS .12 TR(P)T, Nova plug works better than the OS one, hehehe,... can apply less aggresive carb setting w/ same power output. well, now I find the use of my OS P7 the D5, hehehe...

How long have you been running that engine for? I bought one recently and tried it first time last weekend. Maybe because I wasn't expecting too much performance but I was really impressed with it. It was very easy to tune too.

which one? TR(P)T?! since I bought the FW 2.5 gallons ago , but had beenusing TR(P)Ts in other cars previously,.... not the best engine for long tracks, but a beast for tight-mid track,... long lifetime too,... and yes, easy to tune

what fuel do you use for it anyway, I found that 25% Tornado fuel to be the best fuel for it,.... medium wear, good for races,... never heats the engine,.... switched to Gammalube currently and the temp strikes up to 135C with less performance (normally 105C max. with Tornado fuel)

Thanks.. I was on a mid-tight track and as you described, it is a beast... Especially during initial accelaretion it's amazing...

I'm using 25% Hot Stuff which is probably the only fuel I can get... (There is actually one more brand around here but I forget what it was, not Tornado though...)

Default Gear set 39T vs 40T

Hi All,

A question re: gear sets.. What kind of difference can I expect between 39T or 40T gear sets and which one comes standard in the kit?

TIA..

Other than the gear ratio, many people think the 39T free up the transmission a bit. The kit comes with 40T aluminum gears. The best thing is to get the new steel reinforced ring/bevel gears, 39T or 40T. They are expensive but greatly free up the drivetrain.

Look a few posts back for the FW-05R gear ratio chart to see the difference between 39T & 40T ratios.
