FXDAVILA did you find it easier to drive.
What rear shock position are you using?
Are you using the rear swaybar?

I have almost got a good setup just need a bit better rear grip.

front toe-out will definitely help.. but 'LESS FRONT DROOP' not 'MORE'...

Cheers!

Guys like Brandon McNally, Ron Atomic, Al Guerra, Cody Gary, and Todd Bath. You have to come with your A game. I think I'm like a B+.

I love this car.

Wik, our lap times ,11's, were more consistent than mod. I think we are on the right track.

It looks like rain for Sat. Do you know if Austin Hobby will run on Sunday,if so be ready for an old-fashion a$$ spanking.

Just on a side note. I think three50z is on his way to being the next Josh Cyrul.

Here is a few pics of my 05RR. I may just bring it with me to the WinterNats.

I just weighed the car the way it sits in the pictures above and it comes it at 1650. Does this sound about right with out fuel!!

Also, I have 39t ring gears in the car right now....what do you all think about moving to 37t's for Ft Myers? Ft Myers is not a hugh 1/8th scale track but still pretty good size for 200MM.

i would say stick with the 39t if it's a good size track so you have good top end and tourqe but if it's a technical track go with the 37's to get around corners alot faster.

Nice RR Jeff.

ChApS so, I guess the 37's slow the punch a bit on a technical track thus not spinning as much coming out of corners? I will leave the 39s in for now and play with pinions and spurs and then if it is all strung out half way down the strait, I will slap the 37's in there. I was reading some posts in the WinterNats thread and it looks like a few 05RR's will be racing there. I will have to poke their pits and absorb.

Hi, I will be running my fw05rr as well as my friend Angle S, you are more than welcome to check out our set-ups. I run 37's on all tracks and am quite happy with the punch.

I will look you guys up for sure. I just finished a new body for my 05RR and its ready to race. I have some trued up 37's all ready too. I am not really sure which car I will actually qualify with yet but I am going to run the 05RR in practice for sure.
