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!
thanks alot!!

people have told me that the FW05R is low geared meaning that belt driven cars will beat it in the straights is this true or can it keep up with the belt driven cars in the straights

thats why you have different gear ratios available so you can fine tune it to different tracks.

Make sure you get a Kyosho manifold/pipe. I think a lot of top end problems came from that.

Smile GP10

I have a Kyosho Super GP10 and I would like to know if the FW05 parts and hop ups would fit in my old kit? Like front/rear differentials, upper chassis plate or radio plate.... They sort of have some similarities.

it's about halfway down the page.
The price listed there is 27,720yen but I was only charged 26,400yen when I ordered. EMS shipping was 8,300yen.

I have fitted the Mugen gears and all you need is the clutch bell and the 28 or 29t 2nd gear!! The engine needs to go forward a bit so you need to lengthen the mounting slots slightly.

The mesh is not the same so make it real tight and let it bed in over a heat. After that it flys. I havent had it on the track yet but will Sunday.

Cheers

If it was me, I would stick with the stock internal ratio with 39T ring gears and stick on the 29T Mugen pinion. Then you will not loose the high 1st gear FDR when you switch to the Kawahara center conversion. Useful for tight small tracks.
