Looking at the parts listed on TQRC's site I see both tires and wheels listed for the FGX are also compatible with the F10 and the F201...this surprises me a bit so my question is: Is the rim off-set the same on all 3 cars? If I use F201 rims will that change the width of the car from stock?

Thanks

The 201 rears will make the car wider, 201 fronts are a few mm narrow I think. will measure for sure on the fronts but i know the rear is wider.

F10 and F201 wheels has more offset than FGX Stock wheels. It will make your car wider than stock.

2 choices steel or nylon

Also use these as well as the standard gasket.
http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...ns-nt1-p-20496
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
Is this the gasket you mean? (You have the nylon gears posted twice)

It is pretty good out of the box. For f1 I would increase the drag brake to 4 and reduce the braking power until the rear end is settled under hard braking. Put the throttle profile to expo and the minimum drive on the lowest setting until you get used to it. Then change to a linear throttle profile and try it again. If it feels good but you want more out of the corner start increasing the minimum drive setting.

Be sure you plug in the glitch buster capacitor that comes with the edge. It definitely helps.
