We tuned an FGX to a close to TQ and a second place at the 2012 carpet Nats against a field of fast F104's

They can hold their own....

The difference between a 2 deg and zero deg block was around 0.7 ~ 1 mph increase on the dyno.

Be careful on the type of zero degree toe block you buy. The RR+0* actually gave me rear toe-out! I now use the NRR+2.0* which seems close to zero.

Also found the kit left rear hub to be toe out significantly (when it should be straight). Fixed that by replacing with a new hub.

ok, this is on carpet. what are your results on an asphalt track that is very technical with good grip? i think the car would be great on carpet. i run on a tight high bight track.

not with the current top deck, possibly the lower chassis. i believe exotec will work on a new upper deck to fit the car after the ifs is released.
