Droop is completely backed off since I'm still assembling. I suppose the rods could be uneven, I gotta check them I guess. I just put the rod ends on until they snugged to the sleeve, but if the sleeves were uneven then that could make them different.

Just incase you haven't heard SPEEDPASSION now makes bodies for the FGX and they look fantastic, 4 interchangable nose cones, 2 rear air dam wings, side pod air dam wing

The SP shell is really cool,got some good features...bye bye FGX shell


To the guys running in Aus or on hot tracks,we have been running Pit Shim Medium fronts,and R1 Ride rears...awesome,hooked up like velcro.

If the track is warm to hot,this combo is unbeatable....The Ride fronts I find useless,doesnt matter what compound,they push real hard.
Haven't tryed R1 fronts yet,but not expecting much.

I also found out that the Rides need a different Roll Centre setup and Chassis setup.I took away the sway bar,made the tyres work real hard,got rid of the inconsistency they always had.
The above Pit,Ride combo are only .100 of my fastest single laptime set with Super Soft Pits,so they def have the track speed

Now with a few setup tweaks,there consistent,game on

That looks a LOT better without the Mohawk wing down the back they were showing earlier. Might have to grab it

It looks like it has the clearance in the back it needs to fit the FGX.

gsxr0311 yes i have tested and raced the IFS EXOTEC and it was definatly the way to go. I kept most of my set up as the stock i ran this season the only change was 1000 diff oil in shock and orange spring rear diff 3000, OH and rear hinge pin holder changed from 3 to 2 deg.

The SPEEDPASSION BODY WILL FIT ALL FGX's and F-104 and most on the market. I have the bodies here and will post up later next week when i have time to paint them up.

I purchased mine from RCMART, I did see a write up on the UF1 site so there might be a place to purchase in America I'm usure on that.

With the EXOTEC VERSON 2 IFS system upgrade, I'm lead to believe just before christmas but i'd say after they will be ready.

I broke the lower suspension attachment on IFS again. It took harder hits to break it this time because I had Exotech upper arms.

So I got the whole thing together and everything went together fine.

Except somehow I managed round out one hex head... On the screw that holds the nose section on of all things. And it's halfway in.

Any tips for getting it out?
