Anyone who has a picture of their FGX with a Tamiya F60 body mounted on it, would you please post it so that I can see what it looks like. I know that some have said they have mounted Tamiya F1 bodies on their FGX. I have noticed that some say the Tamiya F1 bodies fit just fine on the FGX, but others say that the nose sits too high, or the area around the motor and rear suspension doesn't fit well.

So instead of READING different opinions, I would like to see some actual pictures. Pictures are worth more than a thousand words!!

Not F60, but Tamiya McLaren.

I only posted the idea/instruction for people that could do it easy at home, but other post is just for fundamental things you could do for the hobby but you have equipment/tools, knowledge of mechanical skill and patient… That reason I don’t post how to do it and you don’t know what you will get into, do not get angry or mad on this, peace…
I don’t go here often….

Thank you for posting those pics of your Tamiya F60 body on your FGX!! It looks great!! The nose looks to be the right height,(don't know why some have claimed it sits too high if mounted on the FGX chassis?). I do notice that you had to cut away alot of the rear body work to fit around the rear suspension, but I've seen some of the Tamiya F1 cars with their rear bodywork cut away as well!

Anyone else have any pics of their Tamiya F1 bodies mounted to the FGX chassis? I prefer those who use the FGX or Exotek front end with the proper raised front section and front wing attachment.

I think people are eagerly waiting for the new IFS from 3racing to be available to start some new mods

Lately, I have been playing with 3D software to design some new upper deck in 3D printing for FGX.

Would the Exotek FGX conversion kit not work with the up coming IFS?

I just bought the FGX kit along with a bunch of bling blings and upgrades from 3racing. Bought the Exotek FGX - FRONT ARM BRACES as well (not sure if useful -- may not be compatible with IFS?)

What battery size would fit the stock FGX chassis (actually I bought the 3racing Carbon chassis)
