Hi Guys,

Some one in RadioControlZone has bought a FW05R and droved it. The result is quite positive.

Since the FW05R came out at the same time as the V ONE RR EVO, it is overshadow by it.

Was very interesting in the final on Sunday. Luis lost second gear and the second place car (MTX3) was only about 1-2 seconds behind. What was happening was a yo yo effect. Luis would pull away in the infield and then the MTX3 would eat him back up in the straights so it lok s like this car is very capable compared to an MTX3 in the tight stuff. Bearing in mind our track is quite tight and twisty. Luis have you got to the bottom of why you had no second gear?

Yeah....the grub screw fell out of the 2nd gear hub!

I guess staying up till 3am building the car has some drawbacks!

I've driven both new cars on the same track with the same gear, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the FW-05. It's going to be a very competitive car IMO.

Arrow TCD gear set

As for this gear set, where should this be used -- in front or back?
I plan to run this car with front and rear diffs and in rubber class.

I've just returned from racing mine at our National Championships, I have some findings..

1/ The car is horribly under geared, at England Park ,60-65 meter back straight, using a 29t second gear (and that is the bigest you can get!) it would still be wound out about 2/3 of the way (I used a Novarossi NS3);..that was with 60mm foam tyres!

2/ The car handles better on smaller tyres, i.e. below 60 mm, just feels more planted, canges direction quicker etc.

3/The stock Crownwheels and Pinions are pretty soft (the gears inside the gear boxes), I used Tamiya moly grease on them, they lasted a total of 2-3 hours, although they didn't strip, they were showing sufficient wear to make me decide to change them.And yes, they were shimmed perfectly!
No Doubt Kyosho will release some hardened gears.

4/Handling wise I'll stick to what I've said earlier, turns in better and gets in and out of corners faster than anything out there.....I did miss the one way front diff on that track though.

5/ I think if you run on car-park tracks , this is the car to get.

LS
