Cut half the front window out, on the engine side, and the same in the back window...
Other wise you WILL cook your motor...
Just make all the corners rounded not straight...

Take a drill with a 1cm drill piece in it...
Drill a hole in the top corner of the front window on the engine side, do one at the bottom...
now do one at the top of the window, in the middle, and now at the bottom in the same line...

Now join it all up so its basically a square but with rounded corners

the circle is stronger design, but flows about 3/4 of what the square can...
that why a square with rounded corners is the best...


And a cut out window actually lowers drag levels on the front of the car, but can increase them on the rear...
but all round, its the same, except you get a cooler running engine, that is more reliable

Got a tuned pipe on it?
You guessed right luis i havent got the tuned pipe yet i havent brought it yet as it cost up too 100 bucks. got a few pipe questions.

1/do you think any tune pipe will do? like the carlen ones on rcmart for only $29 USD.
2/also do i have to upgrade the header as well? or just the pipe will do?
3/also with pipes can any good tune pipe be used with any good motor?

and also no i havent done the clutch upgrade UM210 either will do this once i get my mind decided on wether i will be upgrading soon or not.
so far i've only brought these as extras.
2 speed
blue head
alloy threaded shocks (as i run foams)
fail safe
extra diff gears on F+R

And ben with concerns of me having more skills than the FW-05s driver then no. i believe both cars are pretty much same speed. as on the straights we are dead even. Also my 2 speed is weird sometimes it kicks in some times it doesnt and i believe at that time racing against him it didnt kick in at all or i'd get him on the long straights. hes running single speed.

Hey people

My Mates got a VoneS and wants to know what he has to get to put a SG Crank type engine in it. We got the pipe and the Engine Mounts all we need is a Part # for a Clutch that will fit on a SG Crank and go into a VoneS with the same type of gear mesh.


PLZ HELP

Thanks

Yes you can! all you got to do is goto that little bit of paper that came with the 2speed and look for the part number then ring your lhs and order it and just go down and get it.

Cheers
