Use something like Photobucket, then use the IMG link from there

The problem with what you are trying to do is hook up. With front drive chassis its harder to hook up the front tires with a very fast motor versus rear or all wheel drive. You can set up for drag racing but then your are talking about a whole different ball game.

Hi NiMo, I know how to attach images but at the moment I don't have enough posts to do it...

"1. You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made a certain number of posts. You have not reached that limit yet."

That's the message

Anyway thanks for your support!

Thanks for the response. I understand traction with FWD will be tough, I think that was the point of the challenge. Nearly every car out there has its own set of problems, finding ways to overcome this is a challenge I enjoy frequently.

My biggest concern is the drivetrain. If metal diffs, outdrives, axles, etc are not available I know to go ahead and move to the next project.

You might wanna keep an eye out cause this chassis is becoming very popular so other manufacturers will make aftermarket parts for it as they did for the FF01 so keep checking cause I'm sure some high speed gears will be popping up sooner or later.

Those are all cool bodies but the Clio is a short wheelbase car.

And the FF03 is adjustable, so what is the problem?

The problem is you trying to find a Clio body since it was released with the FF01. All of those body sets you listed where released with the FF01 chassis and are near impossible to find.

Read the entire post, it says RERELEASED body parts. So in a while they won't be impossible to find! Looking forward to the Toyota Levin. Going to grab me a few for collection.

Nowhere in that post does it states that they are RE-RELESED body sets. They might be re-relesed in the future but there is no link to state it otherwise.
