Oh I see. Yes, they did some modification to the chassis so it can fit the AAA batteries instead those big standard one. And the 3mm lowered is only the fuel tank not the entire top deck.

Damn.

I hate it when you buy somthing when it first comes out, only for it to be offered in a better package deal less than a month after you got it, and for little or no extra cost....

I know how you felt, I buy my own gears too.. not just received them for free..

On the other hand, look at it this way,

It is very hard being a manufacturer.. things you decide to give for free later on.. you get complain.. things that should have been free but you trying to sell it.. you also got complain. Clear example of either you did or did not, still go to jail.

Visits the team xray forum on FK05.. there are soo many customer wanted to be heard and wanted to be satisfied to their own personall current needs.

You getting one? Was there any news about if the current kit is upgradeable? Probably not, I assume.

Cheers, Mark.

It happens to us all, but it is also the price you pay for getting new products just after they come out. The deal and parts are generally better after a couple of months.
I'm still thinking about the Mega and the new Hudy setup - but no definate plans to buy either at the moment, although my local supplier now offers the Hudy full setup kit for only 240

Cheers, Mark

Yep - it is a shame the 3mm chassis doesn't come as standard - for my carpet circuit, the standard chassis is too thin.

It would be easier to justify upgrading to the FK05 if the 3mm was already included, but now if I keep the FK or buy the FK05, I need a 3mm chassis - looks like the FK04 will be staying.

Default clutch shims

Does anyone know the partnumber of the shims,
marked with the red ?
They are used between the centax clutchnut and the ball bearing to avoid "clutch dragging". I do have other shims at home, but the outer diamter is too big and they wrub against the bearing.

I cannot find an ordernumber. It really doesn't have to be "original" shims...


thx,
Maarten

My LHS sells the correct size (5 x 7 mm if I'm not mistaken) Kyosho shim set. It comes in 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 mm sizes.

Part number is 96643.
