The FW-05r has longer rear cvds put those on your car and it will move the spot where the cvds ride on more meat of the outdrive

Don't worry, the way I maintain my cars it will always look like this.

At the races, I spray down my car with WD40 before each race so no debris can stick to the car permanently. At the end of the race, I blow down the car with a high pressure air pump that is in my field box and then re-apply a new quote of WD40. (Photo attached)

When I come home, I then go through a detail clean.

This way, my cars always look showroom condition.

Also, I have a tech question.

If you are on a tracking with 70% right hand turns, would you ever consider setting up your car with more camber on the left hand side to the right?

Or will this throw of the the handiling of the car?

Thanks for any comments.

70% right hand turns is a fair bit so i would put more camber on the working side ( left ), probably also run a split tyre on the front say 37 right 40 left.

But thats me thats what i need to get my car working

Maybe because the outdrives were so soft, they wear instead of the CVD's. I used the Skyline 4mm shock tower, and never broke one.
Thanks a lot for the info Murnan, appreciate it. Well, couldn't complain that much on the outdrives if you're having yourself some ballistic engines huh...

Hey Matt
Have you seen the Kawahara disc?...i had a look at it in Ric`s car and he had nothing but words of praise for it....rates it very highly.
He also recommended the Kyosho hmm i`ll try and get the spelling right...."sintered?" disc pads....theyre not cheap but apparently the best you can get.
Cheers

The Kawahara disc and Sintered pads are a good combination and costs $90.00 from Ric. I just wish I could put it to better use I need to start racing on real tracks instead of parking lots to improve my skills.
