That upper deck looks good Marcus. I have yet to try mine on asphalt other than a trip around the hobby shop parking lot.

Hey guys I got my fgx with exotek chassis planted on ashphalt!
I even beat my fastest lap time and race time and now currently hold the fastest lap time and race time out my local track.
It took a lot of playing with settings and etc but it got there.

Caster block 35g -1 (tie rod top arm mod)
2.5mm shims on bull studs on rear of caster plate for top arms
Springs- 3 racing soft medium
Weights above front wheels - approx 40g
tyres - hpi soft

Rear end
Ride - 6.5mm
Droop - 1mm above ride height
Camber - 2*
Toe - 3 degrees
Toe - 3*
Shock oil - 500wt much more oil
Shocks associated - 2 holes
