Thanks rcosmax. Does 62/59 split means you run 62mm in front and 59mm in the rear or is it the other way around?

Jeff: Should be 59 front and 62 rear, with the 23T front pulley the rrr are over-drive and will require a 2mm split to maintain a 1:1 ratio. Using the 24T will allow to use front and rear tires of the same diameter.

What is the benefit of overdrive anyway? Since we have to true the tires to different sizes to maintain a even drive ratio, wouldn't it be better off to run the 24T pully and use the same size tires (or slightly bigger rear for wear) like the FW? Thanks!

sorry i should have more clear... larger tires in the rear to even out the overdrive that you get front the front stock over drive. The overdrive is great as it will make the tires wear much more evenly and maintain that split for a longer time. It gives more on power steering and faster turn in. That is why some guys were using the 40th rear gear and 39 th front gear in the FW-05 r... to get this front overdrive. i have been starting with a 3mm stagger as it ensures that i will still have a split at the end of the race. It starts a bit slower but finishes very strong once the tires wear in. i cant set the tire taper on my tire truer so it actually only takes a few laps to wear the rear into a good split. A little loose to start though.

I m using one at the moment. The kit includes the front diff casing however you have to buy the bevel gears and the outdrive cup. I use my extra bevel gears that I have from my Evo, I also use Mugen Diff outdrive cup with it, which is a perfect fit. You will also have to put bearing spacer/shim on both side of the bearing to get rid of the lateral play when you are done putting it in between the bulkheads. FYI I use my FW's extra diff bearing spacer.

I'm giving this car a try. The FW-05R will rest until the RR conversion comes out.

If anyone would like to buy parts this is a really cheap place to buy. http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/

Just finished the car last night but it's raining today so no testing.

I am having mixed feelings about this car. It is so light and low in CG it's sure to handle well. On the other hand, maintenance is going to be a pain compare to the FW. And what's up with the belt rubbing the manifold anyway!

Hi FW05R,

During the recent Fall Championship (RD Logics Race) held in
Revelation a week ago, I ran a Triple R and my car passed thru
tech at 1740 .... which is 15 over the limit.

The car I had is box stock and the only thing added to it is the
rear shock tower was doubled up...
