What's wierd, is I don't have that issue with my RR's - only the 5T.
I shimmed it up, and still on the same servo 10-15 tanks later.
The 5T has like 8-10 tanks, and 3 servos!!!

Its a weird thing. I am totally puzzled. I guess I will find some nomex tape and try again.

Thanks,
Steve

I'm about that high off the top plate. I found some nomex heat shielding from Losi on the net. I'm gonna look into it.

That depends on the state of the R I guess.

Kit goes for ~100 dollar, but could be hard to get nowdays.

New car goes for ~325 dollar (HongKong).

And there are differences between the RR and the ugraded R. Like the driveshafts in the rear !

I would always go for a new one.

Does the Fw05-RR still have the alloy crown gears in the diff or did they upgrade them to the Steel ones?

I know, that should be standard stuff... but it isn't. The RR comes with the alloy.

I'm just getting into this 05R thing and was wondering whats the would you get out of, and the difference between the 37 and 39 ring? What's the pinion? Also what's the diff lube combination. I was started racing on an medium traction, technical track with one long straight. I was getting ready to put in 7000wt diff lube in front and back and decided to check the forums first. 8000wt seems to be the magic number.

Pinion on all diff gears are the same, for 41,40,39,38 and 37.
You are aware that they are available in steel ?

Medium traction = don't use high numbers on diff oil, 7k or 8k sounds right.

Technical (meaning lots of corners ? ) = one way in front

Long straight = gear the car correctly for your engine, you have plenty of option with all the sizes !

ps. Never use same oil in front and rear, always use a little thicker in the front !

I drive mostly on very technical track, high grip, not a very long straight.
Use 39 diff gears, 10k oil in rear, one way front. (Have the OS TZ engine, 3 ports stock). Played a lot with setup's for diffs, but in the end I stayed with the one way, love the exit speed in the corners (because you go in faster), and the traction on the straight.

Be aware, I'm no expert, nor am I a championship driver.. Just drive (alot) for fun. And learned a lot on the track from those fast drivers Now I'm one of them !

Thanks for the info on the diff stuff. I already rebuilt the diffs and its setup the way you explained it. I already got a one way on order, but will have to use the front diff for this weekend's race. Maybe I'll get it by Friday and I can drop them in before the race. You are right about the exit speeds on the one way, since thats where I've been losing it to the MTX-4's (which is the current dominant car on our track).
Who makes the steel gears? Does 3racing have any?

Thanks again for the info

Steel gears are from Kyosho. Shame to them that they don't come standard on RR... Alu last only 5 to 6 gastanks with a decent engine.

Be aware that you need other swing shafts and joints to fit the one way !
Universals are great from Kyosho, stay away from 3racing, they used some sort of weird steel which is really crap.

MTX-4 is a good car, but I rank the RR just a little higher, but all depends on track (technical is great for RR), grip and tyres you use.

I think there are only two cars which really give a fight.. the Serpent 710/720 and the Kyosho V-one RRR.. The RR beats them on a short technical track.

Good luck next race !!!
