7000 good for rear diff, you will need 50,000 for the front.

Ballrace, UK word, means putting ball bearings in instead of the bushes, which you have done.

Diffs are the same on both cars, where you have one bar across the diff with gears each end, the R has another bar crossing with two more gears. Just makes it able to withstand more power.

That's called toe out.
Front toe out should be about 1 degree, never run an IC car with front toe in.

I just finished building my FW-05s last week and run it for the first time on the weekend. This is my first car and I am hopeless with anything mechanical so building it was a struggle for me. Lucky I have a friend who helped me


Getting the engine started was a real hassle. It just would not fire and all the factory default settings were not what they were meant to be. After about 20mins we got it to fire but we never got it running right. Right now it runs very rich and stalls every now and then. Hopefully we can get it sorted next weekend.

The car did impress though with its handling, braking and turning better than the TC3's on show. Its just gets hammered on the straights, got to sort out that engine and get a two speed.


Here are some pics

thanks for that Nimo. with the breather holes do you put a hole through the profiles of the tires? (side walls)

and i will have to get sway bars for the FW-05S and will also have to try that body

Do not drill the tyres!!

Put the holes at 180 degrees in the centre line on the wheels.

Anyone have any info on the FW-05T?

For less than the S your getting a 2 speed and radio gear on top of the normal S package, or so it seems...

Have they skimped on anything? How can they offer this at that price?

the FW-05T includes a GX15R where as the FW-05S includes the GS15R.
the T would have no hope against a FW-05S with a single speed anyway apart from that i can understand japanese from the kyosho site.

Default Toe adjustment and Engine settings?

Can any give me some advice on adjusting the toe on the front wheels. The FW-05S comes with plastic/resin? ball cups which are screwed all the way in to touching by default.

This seems to give 4 or more degrees toe out, is there a replacement se ot ball cups with turn buckles that can be used for this car? or is it a case of removing them and adjusting them by 1/2 turns?

Also, Can anyone tell me the settings theyt have on the stock GS engine that comes with the 05S? we are currently running with the low speed screw 1/2 turn in from default and the high speed needle at 2 turns out. How far can we take the high speed needle in?

At it's surrent settings we are managing approx 36 Kmph at full speed, using the stock single speed tranny.

with the toe rods you can use mugen titanium or kyosho's FW-05R turnbuckles.

and also replace the ball cups with 4.8mm ones, but you will also have to change those 5.8mm ball screws with 4.8mm ball screws. will try to get some pics of my FW-05R for you tonite.

I have an FW-05RR conversion kit heading my way for my 05S. Kind of pisses me off because I just broke and replaced the front shock tower and suspension arms

Anyway will all of the RR parts fit onto the S? Will I be needing any R parts as well?

you will need a few R parts as you will be ditching the old radio box that is on the top deck of the S

but good thing is you will now have a carbon fibre top deck which looks awesome.

you will also need a flat battery pack.

i hope you still kept all your plastic part extra's that came with the FW-05S kit.

I kept all the bits... But a flat battery pack? From the pics of the R it looks like it uses a normal battery pack just in a different position?...
