Probably this explains why the car has very good acceleration and gets in and out of corners fast.

I have the same experience as SP racer, the car handle great but the crown gear wouldn't last too long. As for gearing, I only fine it a little under gear, the 39T crown gear should make it better.

Also whoever that is running this car should also try to grind the head of the 2.6mm screw for adjusting the 2nd speed shorter so that it will not come in contact with the 2nd gear while idling or running in 1st speed.

I was coverting all my left side pipe to use on my FW05R, all you need to do is to removed the presure nipple, block the hole and refit in onto the opposite side. However I have just brought a proper right side pipe - OS T1031, this is the same as the T1030 but the have the nipple on the other side. Anyone of try one of this pipe?

A bunch of racers at my track uses the 1030. Excellent all around power and very dent resistant compared to those soft pipes that are the norm. A bit pricey though but worth it.

I have one(1030) but I still didn't install it since I got it two months ago. It's too darn nice.

Horrible excuse, especially because it stays pretty . Very robust, and even the tip doesn't get bent. One of the best pipes performance wise as well... not the best, but close.

I didn't realize the pipe for right side engines had a different parts#... I should check that the next time I go in (when I work, I always ending handing the right-side pipe to the guys that need the left-side pipe ).

IM2lazy: The OS 1/10 tuned pipe goes as follows;

1030 - 6mm stinger (left side) for car like V1R/MTX3
1031 - 6mm Stinger (Right side) for car like Super10, RS4, FW05R/S
1032 - 5.2mm Stinger (Right Side, IFMAR Approve) for V1R/MTX3

Ok hachiroku , here goes.

Don't worry about the number of shims, what you do is assemble the diff as shown in the pic, the push it from right (1) to left as far as it will go,Have a look at the gap between the bearing (1) and the housing, this will show you the total amount of shims you'll need to use.
Once you've filled that gap full of shims ( in my car I think I used 2 x 0.2 and 2 x 0.1 shims), start swapping them from right (1) to left(2) until you have the desired backlash.
If they are ever so slightly notchy, that's ok, they'll smooth out after a couple of runs.

If you can't understand this, PM me!

Default best place to buy FW-05R?

Hey all, I am really liking this car. I currently own a NTC3, its not bad. I know that I do want to stick with a shaft driven car. Where is best place to get this car. Also how long has it been out?

Thanks Jason
