Three cells on botton with two cells on top, same as the MTX3 pack. Try to get 800mah cells, I only have 650s at the moment and only get about 35 minutes from them.

You can buy a used FW05 and cannabalize parts from it to build up your ZT, this way is more cheaper that buying individual parts to make up a car.

However, I built my ZT from parts because I use Mugen shocks and some front and rear suspension parts.

Hey guys! I've been wanting the FW-05R for a while now and I really dig the Kawahara kit. My sponsor is getting it for me (wifey).

Is there a benifit to having the engine on the left instead of the stock location? And can you use the center gear assembly on a stock FW? I like that you can access the gears faster.

Thanks for the great info.

The car is very well ballanced and you can use a greater variety of pipes.
The decomposable two speed mount will not fit the standard chassis.
One of the best features is the variable chassis flex, this is done with the two countersunk screws under the throttle linkage.

rjl, thanks for the scoop, bro! I think the Kawahara kit makes the car dead sexy. It's gotta be the best looking and functional chassis out there.

It's not just pretty it is also the most predictable car I've ever raced. My lap times have come down a little and my consistency has improved a lot, down to .3 secs in a 6 minute heat.

I'm sold. I like stuff to look good but i also like it to have some real purpose or race worthy functions. I've been working with an RR Evo Conv. for 1-1/2 years now. Basicly working myself up to the upper ranks in the B-main (I start in the E). If something doesnt work for me I just put it back. If it helps the car and my driving, I work with it. I'm the same way with in the CCS Series.

I just want to make sure this kit works for you all that are using it. I'll pick up a 05R this week and try it out for a few races to get use to it. And then get the Kawa-kit to see & feel the difference.

rjl, is your success with consistency being compared to racing the stock 05R and then going with the ZT? Just wondering.

Since I really try to challenge myself I'm hoping to get better as well with this car.
