2 choices steel or nylon

Also use these as well as the standard gasket.

Found the leaking off the diff was comming from the gasket so I seated one of the orings in the groove where the diff case(lid) sits and no more leakage!
I just had this gear laying around from my Tc days
LEGEND! ! ! ! !

Default Universal set

I have been looking on the 3Racing site for universal sets or the FGX.

All i can find is the swing shaft component http://os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=5242

There is no outer cup joint in the spare parts list.

Does anyone know if this part from the sakura zero fit?

http://os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=4704

Any info would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Jason

Dear Tamiya (or even Hudy), Please make front arms for the Sakura FGX from your superior plastics. And please package them as upper and lower arm sets and not everything else I don't need to replace.

Thank you very much,

Little Johnny Higgins

You would have a better chance of having RPM make them but even then it is unlikely.........

This is such a niche class. And the FGX only one chassis in that class.

Dear John,

Why would we make something for our competition?

Respectfully,
Tamiya

Therefore the Tamiya parts are being grafted directly onto the competition by some.

John, since there is no way that Tamiya is going to make parts for a competitors' car; you would be better off asking them to produce their own version of the FGX with IRS. THAT, I would like to see/get!!!

very true. I'm sure they can come out with a similar design to capitalize on the interest and then discontinue it also.

I had my cars out for practice again this weekend. Mike Pulfer was out to practice with his On Point 12th. He wanted to give the FGX a whirl. After some front tire prep - Didn't clean the fronts enough after the last practice - the cars were ready to turn some hot laps. After this round of changes the cars were running a couple tenths faster than last week. Is there more left? I'm not sure. We are down to tuning radio settings, braking strength, drag brake and throttle curves. We did find out that the car loves drag brake at 40% on the Hobbywing Justock. Steering speed was slowed by 20% and the steering EXP was decreased by 15% just to make the steering feel more natural and less twitchy. The front tire traction was a non issue. No more push. With throttle you could make the rear of the car predictable and induce a little wheel spin if needed (basically a controlled drift) to point the nose of the car in the right direction. With brakes you could make the car stop and rotate and get back to a straight line. Have you ever watched someone with really good driving skills push your car to its limits? It was an eye opener. My best lap was a half second slower on a track where .1 of a second makes a difference. They've started calling me "The Team Principal" as I show up with my 2 cars and let everyone else test them. Then go through the results and make changes. And my comparison, the WGT Blinky cars are about 1 second a lap faster. My personal best in WGT was a 7.8. The FGX was an 8.8. Average laps were still consistently 1 second different.

If I haven't said it before, I can't wait for some front arm updates from 3Racing. I posted on the 3Racing Facebook page and put up the link to this thread for their viewing pleasure.
