Cool,
I was about to try the washers under the middle bearing block (middle shaft bracket) like on the older cars.

Then we'll see him only going to tracks where the grass is long off-piste!

How I wish ! Like I mentioned earlier, I don't mind having just to be their test driver.

Oh yes, I did that too. Forgot to mention that. As I do not have those ecenters, what I did was to use 0.5 mm shim in the front of the mid bearing block to tilt it. Yes, I see you come from the old school too.

Yup.

I'll try the washers first.
Then I'll try the ecenters when I get a hold of them.

so as far as the stock gears holding up to the power of the Max S5 I wouldn't have the slightest idea As far as my name is concerned you might ask yourself so why did you name yourself FW05R...............My answer to that is that kit was my initial choice
Good answer ... everybody is allowed a mistake or two and a mistake with a nickname is way better than a mistake getting some other car! I nearly used the nickname "LawnMower" but because I did pretty well with my 710 in the last race back home, I'd be less humble!

Have you guys seen the Disk Set-up wheels Orange (4) yet?

I like the orange.
I wish they did the rest of the metal parts in that color.

Hey, what is it like there at the moment now that Germany is out of the Euro championships? No more Dutch Serpent products imported?
England too and Malaysia is never near enough to be in Europe
