Kyosho FW05T ???

Postby kevin bissell » 11 Jun 2007, 23:27

I've had an enquiry from somebody interested in coming to the club and racing a Kyosho FW05T. Apparently it's fitted with a .15 pull start engine and a two speed transmission.

As I know nothing about the IC scene, can somebody tell me if this car is OK for racing?

Many thanks, Kev.

back when the IC sport class was run it would go in there, i believe you can race it in the IC touring class but it would be at quite a disadvantage.

thoughts / comments guys ?

out of the box the FW05T will be much slower than other Foam Tourers as the motor produces less than half the power on current motors used.

A few basic upgrades can get the car to a decent pace.
In my hands, and on Rubber tyres, I managed a 19:301 times with a Kyosho .15 motor in a RR upgraded FW05S.

It was the GS15R motor, but to really beat my record you will have to run on Rubber tyres.
I may have some drive shafts, will need to look in to my box.
