Tried to email them about it no reply up to this moment. Anyone here tried ordering from them. Does it take that long? Thanks in advance. Have a good day!
I order TONS from them and they have been perfect. They usually only send an email with tracking when they ship They recently switched to a new web system. Call them if you are worried, they are super helpful.

It's all good now sir. Just got too worried since I placed the orders 2 days ago until I got a reply from Jeff. I called him right after I got his email. Thanks to http://www.speedtechhobbies.com/ all is good now.

I think it is TRG or 3Racing wing (they both look exactly the same). The front wing is just any F103 wing, then cut, make two holes, then attach.

Does the CF upper deck stiffener eliminate the upper deck breakage issues?

Thanks for the info. Do I have any options for the upper deck? I believe McKune has stopped producing stuff for FGX and Exotek looks like they discontinued their EFX chassis/upper deck kit.

Hopefully Exotek is just waiting to make updates to their chassis kit to work with the 3Racing IFS upgrade whose release is imminent. (Crosses fingers)

Of course, the IFS release has been imminent since what, July? Grrr.

RCShox had a top deck kit but it appears to be out of stock. There's still the 'Rabbit' kit but I don't know much about it. Hopefully someone else can chime in.

Hey, what do you know... that is that case according to the Exotek site. Woot.

Try, RC9394 2.25 Carbon conversion Kit. It will allow you to use F104 front assembly. That's what I took since I can't wait for the updated conversion. Cheers!

Anybody know if the McKune chassis will work with the IFS setup ?
Looking to try out a FGX...anyone make a suggestion regarding which chassis conversion would be my best bet (Exotek, Mckune, etc )
Has anyone confirmed the McKune chassis is no longer being produced ??
Thanks All

Thanks ! You just saved me from wasting money on a used McKune chassis car.
I'll wait for the revised Exotek and just buy a new FGX.
Much appreciated.

I just heard from 3Racing yesterday that the new double wishbone front suspension should be available this week!

Until I get a chance to read this entire thread, could someone give me the bullet version of what needs to be changed or upgraded on the FGX to make it faster or less prone to breakage ?
I'll be getting the Exotek chassis and the 3R IFS to start.
Are Pit tires the suggested rubber ? What combo for parking lot asphalt with no traction compound ?
When using shorty packs, what's the optimal battery position ? (I'm assuming the Exotek will have room for movement fore and aft)
Came across a reference for mounting F104 bodies on the FGX but the page they referenced was wrong. Anybody have the details or a link ?
Thanks folks. I appreciate any help. I'll catch up as quickly as possible.
