I had to remove more than a couple mm of material but then again I like to have enough clearance. I can probably fit a 38t now.

My god that is so sick. Who needs 3Racing to come up with an FRS system? They can start working on another car now, I think the FGX has been taken over.

Now of course we need some video of it Sean. Lots of it.

He is NOT spamming anyone with his posts informing us of the latest UF1 race!!

Check out uf1series.com and you should get the idea!
More than happy to see updates of an F1 series on the other side of the world.
The UF1 series has spurred many to revive F1 racing in their local area.....

Cool, that's what I was trialling last night. I was considering super soft fronts and maybe hard rears.
I'm looking for more steering than what I have so far. The shimizus are too unstable and inconsistent on our indoor , grippy track. So far , I have found the soft/medium combo to be much smoother and direct, along with a disappearance of front end chatter.

He is racing UF1 RD2 today for the first time.

I'll ask him how it works....
