The 10 x 15 bearing is the same as the FW so dont need that.

I got the centre conversion today and realise I need smaller pinions now so that i have a choice for smaller tracks otherwise I have to rebuild the whole thing every time

Jeeez!!!

Nice one! The stuff is winging its way here as we speak!!

One question... or 2....

Why would you want to use the MTX-3 rear end with rubber tyres? Its only an advantage with foams

and why the really soft springs in the pic??

Whoops is that a new Tamiya It was on the MTX-3 thread I thought it was an FWO5. Sorry

At any rate I converted my Evo to the Mugen Rear and it add makes cmaber adjustments much easier. Also you can add way more camber than the Kyosho hubs.

Marcos: I would recomend using stiffer rear springs. The 05R has great traction as it came from the factory. Try to install a one way, it would help you a lot on the steering. Since you are going to race on a high traction surface, adjust the cluth so it can engage at higher RPM (about an aditional 2mm from factory spec) this will create dramatic launches exiting the corner.

Good luck!
