Post Kyosho FW-05S

Hello!

This is a forum dedicated to the FW-05S,
This is definately an amazing little beast, being the younger brother of the FW-05R.

I will be posting pictures soon.
Feel free to post pictures. And setup guides.

Thanks!

Default FW-05S

Hey,
I have already got the following for the FW-05S:
Special Break Disc
V-one R fuel tank
Extra Differential

These upgrades are cheap, yet I have noticed a differende, in acceleration, which is where this car really dominates.

Thanks, Aaron

you all might be interested to know that a bone stock FW-05S with GS-15 and 2 speed conversion came in 2nd in the Kyosho Cup Taiwan, beating a FW-05R with a Nova Max engine. Again goes to show it's the driver that matters.

Talking Hey...

Hello, Nas, my name is Aaron

I have not faced too many probs with my engine....
(Except that BLOODY pull starter!!!! )

Anyway, I order my parts from Hong Kong, they are very cheap!
If you are interested I will give you more details!

If the car is dirty...
A). The race area may be dirty.
B). Inside engine may be dirty.
C). Engine rejecting the fuel.
D). Fuel may be spraying everywhere due to fuel/air leak.

I will help you out, soon with the engine!


Thanks, Aaron
