I guess a better description of what I was thinking is this...every double deck car, TC, F201, FGX, ect...has to be put up on chassis blocks and have the upper deck screws loosened to untweak the chassis. As the cars go through their paces on the track they twist and get stuck on the bulkheads and stand-offs that connect the upper and lower deck. Now with the FGX when the chassis twists, having the front suspension on the upper deck is going to do 2 things...first the tweak will be exaggerated because of the stand-offs, and 2nd the front and rear suspension will no longer be aligned.
I see. I just can't imagine where it would get tweaked. I tried twisting the chassis with force but I just can't see this car generating that much grip to exert any significant force that is heavier than what my hands can.
But anything can happen in the main.

Every double deck chassis gets tweaked. It happens over time but they all get to a point where you need to put them back up on blocks and release the tension in the upper deck screws so the chassis sits flat again. Maybe if they mounted the upper deck to the bulkheads with some sort of pivot it wouldn't happen but that would just add too much un-needed weight.

Can you take a photo without the body? I was curious what the wing/body mount area looked like compared to the older bodies. Do you know if the exotek brace will work with the new piece?

Its the Tamiya F2012 kit, I just did some cosmetic grinding in the front this kit is 30g heavier than the F60 kit front wing is 8g heavier and the rear wing is 3g lighter.

I am pretty sure its not going to work, the body mount in the nose piece is countersunk. I will post a pic in a bit.

I used the brace on the underside instead of the top like on the F60. Works great. Just need a longer screw.

I get my decals from F1Paintlab (F1 and now even non-F1 liveries). BPShadow does amazing work. You might want to check with him if he has the 2013 - but here is the set for
F2012

Yep Same as the Enforcer Cars I design as well.

I also like the fact you can put any of the Tamiya, Tech, TRG, and other front suspensions on this thing and that it is also all black!

I also hope to order one Monday!
