Hi Contender

No It Was Good For What It Sold For, Remmeber Parts Are Getting Harder To Fine I'm Looking For Parts Also Mainly All Stock Parts Maybe Front Knuckle Arm And Rear Hub In Aluminum. Other Then That All I Need Is Stock Parts. So When I Run, Just Incase You Get A Novice Runner That Wants To Run With The Expert Class.
And Back To The Shop Lol

I will post pics of it after I make a few changes to it . Always wanted a superten, and no regrets that I now have one on the way.

Hi Toad,
i have ball differentials, front and rear, but they arent working good, they dont have traction; when the engine is running high , the car isnt as fast as the engine rpm! actually the balls slips.
Also using the brake, they slips and the car is hard to stop.
i checked them, tight the screw, putted some new grease but was just a bit better.
Also a spring, in the front diff., and a Thrust Race, still in the front diff., were badly ruined.
I wonder what it is.
maybe the engine too much powerfull? with the old kyosho gs15 never had problems, but i dont think so becouse it slips not just accelerating, but braking also

Question Help

Hi everyone it good to see you. I need help everyone??? I need to know more about my car and what upgrades i should do or can do. I have a SuperTen GP 4 WD that came with a Mclaren GTR body. I also bought at that time a OS.15CZ moter(not a pull start). The last time i ran this car was 2000 when i was in Greece. I just put the car togeather a couple weeks ago. I had in parts in a box for so many years. The reason why i put my car back together is because my friend and cuzin bought a hpi. And i miss the rc world. So just got back into it. I went to my local hobby shops 3 of them but they cant help me (no parts or body that would fit they said. And kyosho told me that they are discontinued...The only thing i am missing is the back black wheel that it came with i think i left it in greece>>>F_K... I would like to find a pair if anybody selling or know were i can get one.. or Mclaren GTR body that it came with..... I also would like to know what size body i could put on car and were can i find wheels and tires or what size can i use. I am lost People any help will be great. Thank you all i am so glad that i found this sight. I

If yours is an FW03, you can slap on HPI Super Nitro tires and wheels on it with no problems. If you have an FW04, you will need the Kyosho or Cross wheels that are specific to the FW04. However, you can run HPI Super Nitro tires on those wheels (except the wider staggered setup.)

HPI 280mm bodies will work on the Supertens. You can run 300mm with some slight modification on the wheel cutouts.

If you still have the original box, and if its an FW-04, it'll probably say so on the box. I never heard or saw the name FW-03 on anything till the 04 came out.

But other then that, take a look at the wheels. The 03 has nuts holding them on, the 04 has bolts. (take a look back at page 55)

The 03 wheels were used on some later models (TR-15 series), so they might be easier to find.... if thats what you need.

Hi Toad, you mean i should tight the screw of the differential?i think i did, but on the rear differential i have a normal screw, and i'm not able to tight it more.on the fron t i have an hex screw so is easier to tight.dont understand why kyosho made the same diff.with 2 different kind of screw.

For Yanny.Here is Europe Kyosho still have all replacement parts for the fw04, not for the fw03, from bodies to tires, check it up kyosho.it or kyosho.de into discontinued models or just searching for the number part.
they have all
If you have the fw03 you can buy tires of the ferrari f2004, and bodies of tr15 rally or of the hpi supernitro avaibles on towerhobby.com

Adapt Team Orion X312T Engine

Hi guys, haven't been here for a while and so happy to see the forum staying active. Nice to see all the new faces too!

Just a quick question: how do I adapt the X312T Engine to my FW04? What clutch do you guys prefer? I'm also concerned about the engine mount, I heard Kyosho low height mount FZW63 works but FZW61 doesn't. I'm thinking about K-Factory one piece engine mount but not sure if that works either.

Could any of you brilliant and nice people out there give a newbie like me some suggestions , thanks and take care!

The F2004 tires won't really work well since you'll need the F2004 wheels and even then, it will look funky since its for an F1 car, not a touring car.

Hi again guys
For Dan h
yes is tru what you say, but i meant the tires for the f-ten, kyosho still produce them for the "new" f2004, so they are perfect for touring
Anyway, i repeat, in Europe are still avaiable from Kyosho, all the parts for the fw04 and the f-ten.

Toad, any news about ball diff.?

Hi antonio,

F-ten wheels and tires "are" super 10 wheels and tires. These same wheels were used on the TR-15. The F2004-F2005 had a different wheel and tire. That tire won't fit on the super 10 wheel. But.... you could probably use the 2004-05 wheel "and" tire on the S10. But like Dan said.. not sure how it will look.

Other thing is, they are not available here in the US. I have a few, but they were hard to get and the shippng is BIG $$$$$.

Yes is true , but i meant the f-ten tires, that are still avaviable here in europe, as the fw04 tires.
of course the f1 look tires of th f2004 are a weird choice for the touring
another thing is that hpi supernitro tires are also easy to find, i guess more in the usa than here in europe
