Unhappy kyosho fw05t tuning help

hey Guys and gals , i just bought my first nitro car...and well im very impressed. But i have been fooling with my carburettor tunings and now have screwed it all up. Was wondering if anyone knows the needle settings or a website that has this info. Cannot find it on kyosho homepage. i think the stock motor on the fw05t is a gs15r (not too sure tho) as i bought it second hand, and didnt get a manual . Anyways thank you for your time and effort in advance, and im happy to answer any questions. thx

Hey fellow FW05T owner ,

I own 1 too. and i`ve got the manual.

How about i sell u for the price of the VoneRRR.

It`s a lovely car.

ok, according to my manual, tighten the screw (clockwise), and unscrew (anti-clockwise) 2 1/2 times.
hope that helps.



Cheers!!!!

Hey no problem!

Didn`t really get the chance to see my car at it`s peak speed yet.
don`t really have to time, my engine`s still running in. so it`s still kinda running kinda rich. Just went for a run yesterday, had some problems with the gears. gonna bring it down to the shop to get it fixed up.

Will bigger wheels get u to drive offroad?

It`s quite hard to find a fellow FW05T driver eh!

Cheers!!

just wondering, Roa4dbanD1t,

when u manually move your car backwards, does the shaft gears make alot of noise and it doesn`t move smoothly? i`m having problems with that.

Thanks,

Cheers!!

check your gear mesh on the transmission and check the gear mesh in the ring gears(front and rear)

HAve actually started another thread regarding that.


I have the teeth almost half worn out if not for an experienced driver who pointed and tightened the screws for me.

But now, after cleaning the car up again, i`m getting the same problem again.

Any thing i can do?
