The situation is more like this:
As the FW05 needs a far shorter braking area, and that others defend the racing line strongly, I have to drive around the outside of them, but because they cannot stop as quickly as me they end up T-boning me, and it just happens that the pipe is in the direct line of fire.
Now if the pipe were on the other side they would not be able to hit it. and although I will still get T-boned I will not have my pipe flattened.
(and for some unknown reason no one wants to out brake you when turning left, which sort of breaks the myth about the weight of the engine helping cornering).

I have looked at that and I reckon that you could place a side protection foam on the Servo/Receiver side as you now have flat areas on which to attach it.

I'm getting one. The price I found out isn't too bad. From anyone with the kit, can you please tell me what is included? Are the ring gears included?

A pipe might be more than the receiver but if you could do a lot more damage to a runaway car with no receiver. That should teach you not to pass on the outside anyway!

$288.00!!!!!

If anybody is thinking of getting an FW-05 i would buy this kit then add the stuff needed to bring it to a full car. It would be about half the price of converting an existing FW-05

Cheers

I think I see what you are saying. That is only the upper deck and chassis. If so then OMG!!! All I really want are the ring gears and transmission case.

okay, try this,... how about having T-boned on the right side and you have your Rx, batts, servo, and transponder on the right side?! I think there are many options here, hehe...

I like the current setup,...being able to ride both outside and inside of turns is a great advantage (being flexible but still doing it at the same pace),... try to master it, the track is yours

So..... someone please let me know whether it is worth it for the full conversion or not?

And will the pinion, spur & bevel gears of the kawahara a lot more expensive?

Thanks for the reply.
