here is a picture of the local track:

If you are buying the 31582 kit directly from Japan, the price should be around $330~350 USD.

Hi All,

Can the performance of the car be justified with the amount of money spent on the kawahara parts (front and center conversion)?

Yes, the FW05R is a very good car (I used to own one) but wouldn't it be more cost effective to just purchase the new factory team NTC3 which is out of the box competitive and fast? Although not as tough as the FW05R.

I raced the exact same gearing combination as in my 05R on my NTC3 at the 2003 Winternationals in Ft. Myers, FL .....

Well, maybe we need to take into consideration the Roll Out fo the car. ....

So what your saying is that it has the same spur and pinion but you dont know if it has the same bevel gears on the diffs so the gearing could be completely different!!

Anybody know what the bevel gearing is on the NTC3? The 05 is 39-13 or 40-13

If you use the conversion kit its 46-17 rear 45-17 front

Cheers

Hope the same spur & pinion was not used!!!!

(info from InitialD post...)
Serpent 705 is 2.0 (or 2.14 optional), Serpent 710 is 1.875, Yokomo G4 is 2.0 (or 2.555 optional), MTX-3, G4 and V1RR is 2.53, NTC3 (& LD3) is 2.5 and FW05R is 3.0 (or optional 3.08).

No worries .... But I must remain anti FW05 -- Two friends just got FW05's and I will be racing them with my HN LD3, should be a good stir if I manage to stay in front since the FW05 costs a lot more..
