i have just recently switched form the LD3 to a V1RRR. i have driven the FW05R aswell as my V1RRR and i can say that i feel the RRR is the faster car. the FW feels alot more planted and stable whereas the RRR rear end is slightly more taily, but still controllably fast. the RRR also carries more corner speed then the FW. i beleive that the kyosho worlds team had a choice of running the RRR or the 05R. they chose the RRR because of its superior handling abilites.

I have both cars. Personally i think the RRR is better of the two. Its out of the box performance is spot on. The FW will need some hop up parts to make it fast such as Steel 39T ring / crown gears and Mugen 28T 2nd pinion gears and after all that you need to dial the on power push that it has.

The RRR suspension its far superior, in fact Kyosho its releasing a RR version of the FW05R (FW05RR) wich if you look carefully its just a "RRR suspension mounted on a FW"

Not quite right.
It does have the RRR hubs but it also has a totally new top deck and front suspension layout.
The FW05 is perfect for Rubber tyre racing but the RRR looks to be better if using Foams.

I owned both and now. Just sold my Fw-05r, because the rrr was that much faster! As mentioned above it is out of the box fast fast fast. Go with the 3r you wont be disapointed.

I'm going to have to go with the FW-05R on a small track 100ft straight or less and the V-One RRR on anything bigger. The FW needs a lot of setup work for big tracks and the V-One RRR is just fast straight out and more forgiving. It's easier to setup the RRR. At the moment my FW-O5R is faster but I think it's only a matter of time before the RRR is faster since it's so good out of the box.

I reccomend everyone use a spool in the front, it's actually very fast and in my opinion better than the one-way in this car or the FW for that matter.

have you tried a spool in the front of the FW? I thought it would make the push worse

Cheers

That is also my thinking.
I have to run a loose front diff to get the car to turn in and get power on steering.
The front RRR hubs are a dream, although I will have to try a solid front before I can say, but logic says it wont work as Serpent use it to take away steering..
