Just been looking at that Titanium Screw set for the FW05.
It's priced at $50, but it also says 115pcs!!

Right so using 40,000 RPM engine with 63mm tres I get the following

With 39 diff ring gear and 13t bevel gear
27t pinion + 45 Spur = 59.4 MPH

With 46t diff ring gear and 17t bevell gear
25 pinion + 45 spur = 62.3 mph
27 pinion _+ 45 spur = 65.8 mph

With 45t diff ring gear and 17t bevel gear
27 Pinion + 45 spur = 67.3 mph

Aree ring gears supposed to be different front and back to give some over / underdrive?

It looks lke the centre conversion give a big increase in drive ratio but using the mugen clutch bell and 29 pinion gears does the same for about 10% of the price!!

Cheers

You could download the 710 setup booklet. Most of it will apply to generic cars.

As to mytsn articles, I am only aware of articles that are teaching you how to set your car right.

Julius Kolff's write-up and Michael Salven's article on mytsn should be of good help to you.

i'd tried the front conversions..it's true that it increases rigidity and lowering the upper arm angle.Me and my buddy goin racing yesterday and we were using FW with front conversion and our cars dial in compare to the other cars...the track layout were very technical.The front conversions also reduces the under steering effects of the cars usual habit...
