A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Default Guys with the exotek chassis's

Hey guys I have ordered my chassis, and can't wait to get!
Is there anything that I should be aware of when building?
I have had plenty of chassis from exotek when racing tc but just thought I might throw out the question?

Honestly, not much except make sure all bearings roll free and make sure it's flat after the conversion.

I know this has been asked before, but I never saw an answer.
Does anyone have setup advice for asphalt? We had an FGX at the track this weekend and he was running the pit tires. Um, not a good result, I think they are too soft and springy for a slightly bumpy track. Was thinkin ride mediums might be a good place to start but wanted to see if anyone had some first hand knowledge.

Ok I am seriously considering one of these bad boys as my first on road.

I have narrowed down the power plant to the hobbywing justock system. Now I need some reccomendation on a servo to use.

What is everyone else using and how are they working for you?

Thanks fellas!!!

Justin

I don't know about it as a first on road vehicle. Its a damn cool car. But I ended up getting a touring car so I can get more practice in, as I was spending more time fixing at the track then driving.

As for what I used I had a hobbywing xtreme with no timing software. Savox SC-1251MG as a servo and a thunder power 21.5t motor.

make sure the servo you get is a low profile listed in the fgx manual. You can dl the manual from the 3 racing website. I got some cheap china low profile servo and it wasn't low enough.

For the motor make sure you get a reedy or thunder power. Or similar one with a short / beveled end as to allow proper clearance with the chassis. If you already have the justock system with the hobbywing motor you will have to grind/move the post and grind the upper deck to fit the motor. If you go back you'll see some posts of examples of the grinding.
