Hi guys i was wondering what diff oil everyone is using in the standard gear diff. My fgx is steering well to the left but then always over steers at lower speeds to the right on power. Cheers pat

I have tried the kit shock oil and no oil (just teflon grease). No noticeable difference.

For your imbalance, maybe just a tire issue (try swapping the rear tires left to right, right to left) and see if the oversteer goes the other direction.

Or maybe the chassis is a little tweaked or ride height not equal on all four corners?

Or steering angle imbalance. Lessen the EPA to the right.

Hope it helps.

I was wondering if anyone thinks that the exotek front arm brace will fit with the new IFS (part FGX-332) - thanks.

The front arm brace is for the lower arm which is completely different on the IFS. The Exotek upper arms should fit fine though.

Just when I shifted to rabbit conversion when I will fit F104 assembly at the front. I will still try if this mod will fit there. Cheers!

Well due to the fact that it is a gear box car and not direct drive yes it is going to be slower than the F104 overall. However in areas that have a bumpy track or grip is not good the FGX is faster due to the independent rear suspension and the ability to add toe-in to the back. On our track the F104 is faster but it is difficult to keep it from spinning out so most of us run the FGX because we can be a lot more consistent with it and it doesn't spin out every time you touch the throttle.

Does anyone know whether the new Tekin Gen2 Redline 21.5 motors will fit in the stock FGX? Dimensions show it to be slightly shorter (51.8mm vs 53mm) than the previous Redline motors. As I have not put motor/esc in yet, I am aware of fit issues with different motors but before I buy something want to be aware of all options. At this point in time I would prefer to avoid modifying stock car until I get a chance to drive it as original, then go with modifications down the road. thanks

yeah, i agree. i raced last weekend and when the track was green my car was good. however when the traction came up my car was then slow compared to the 104s. what tires do you run. do the pit tires make a difference compared to the bridgestones?

On our track the Pit tires did not work well at all on the F104s so there is no desire for us to try them on the FGX. However the HPI tires worked very well on the F10 that ran 1 race with us so we switched to the HPI tires for the FGX. So far they work the best on our track. I do plan to try the HPI tires on the F104 soon so we may see a switch in chassis locally. Last race the race winner ran the F104v2 on the kit tires and it was pretty well balanced but still had to be a lot more gentle on the throttle than the FGX. If the FGX's had better front grip they could easily take the F104s on our track. As it is the F104v2 was just a tad faster than the FGX but not hugely so.
