Default Kyosho FW-05T+ & compatible FW-06 parts project

Hey guys,

So the storey is that I have taken the plunge to purchase a OS .12 TZ and purchased a bunch of parts also and realised some of the parts I purchased was for the FW-06.

3 Racing Graphite Radio Tray For Kyosho FW06
3 Racing Servo Mount For FW06
3 Racing Aluminum Main Chassis For Kyosho FW05R
3 Racing Aluminum One Way Hub For FW05R

Can anyone here confirm this is true?

Cheers,
Pete

All the above parts fit perfectly, some parts dont come with instructions so its takes a little longer to figure it all out. Will be posting some pictures of the final assemly.

note: you need to keep part number VS-027 for some small plastic spacers for the 3 racing one way hub.

Keep it going.
Good to see the car is still in use after so many years.

This was my FW05RR when I qualified 4th out of 70+ in a National meeting.
Was also the last year that the main class ran on Rubber.
It was never the same on Foam.




3racing top deck and gearbox housing.

Shame I could not convince anyone to make the central one way unit (what the brake disc sits on) as I had on on an FW04 and it allowed for one way to the front but still had 4 wheel braking and 4 wheel drive.
OK so the one way bearing in it may have to be replaced often, but that could have been built in to the design.
If someone made one now, then I would not hesitate at rebuilding the car again. I miss it (hated the RRR)

NiMo Thats SHIT HOT!,

Congrats in your place in the qualify.

I'm a little concerned about the 3 racing parts as I have been advised by my LHS that the aluminum used is not the greatest quality. I'm sure the chassis and the upper deck will be fine but how did the front one way run and how much differance in handling was it from stock?

How did your 3 racing gearbox housing holding up? Was looking at the next upgrades after I get this on the track if the weather holds up this weekend and I can get myself a starter box in time!

To be honest the parts for this car is quite expensive when compared to other brands and parts availability is another thing but I'd keep it running as long as parts are available.

3racing alloy is very soft, so don't use their diff and drive outputs, and their suspension shaft holders bend very easily.
the centre gearbox does not have any sideways pull on it so it doesn't wear like other parts.
Their Carbon parts however are good, but if you use their shock towers then make them double thickness and then they are almost unbreakable.
