Its just my excel spreadsheet. If you want a copy, PM your email address. It also works when imported to any program that accepts .xml format. Took about an hour or two to create.

Intersted in any details that you find out, will wait and see before sending them an email to see if they can post to Australia

mingnon, they emailed me back and the Formula Rabbit is a conversion for the 3Racing FGX. It is basically the chassis, upper deck, motor mount and rear a-arms, all in graphite. You need to have an FGX to transfer parts to the Rabbit and you need a Tamiya F104 or F103 front suspension set, arms, kingpins etc.

The car you build will basically have an FGX rear end with independent suspension, and a Tamiya front end. The chassis has the same wheelbase as the Tamiya F104. It is 270mm That means that Tamiya bodies will fit.

I don't know if I'm allowed to post the price of the Formula Rabbit on the forum, so I suggest you email them for your price in Australia.

I'm having a slap my forehead moment. How long ago was it that we would look to 3racing for performance upgrades for our F103s and F104s and now we are looking for upgrades from the upgrade leader's new car.

Yeah I was kinda wondering the same thing...maybe the FGX rear wheel off-set is wider so using the F104 wheel brings it back to 180mm? Just a guess but would really like confirmation before I go and purchase one. In the pic it does look very close to the F104 rear width anyway.

Looks to me like they have used front wheels to bring the width down in the rear end .

Unfortunately, they didn't say exactly what the front and rear widths would be. They only said that the width would depend on whether or not you use the F104 or the F103 front suspension. Not sure about the rear width; I will have to email them back to ask that question.

Well I sent them another email asking about the front width vs the rear width. Seems to me if you use the F104 front, you would have a front width of 180mm; and since the car uses the FGX rear, it would seem the rear width would be 190mm, which of course throws everything off. Maybe there is a way to narrow the rear by 10mm to make it all the same.

At any rate, as soon as I get an answer from them I will post it here.

What you could do on the front, is use Ride 104 rims... these have a different offset to the Tamiya rims, and make the front wider. Plus you have to use them with Ride tyres...

My 104 with a set of Ride wheels/tyres on is very close to the overall width of a standard FGX. With tamiya rims, it's 180mm.

Simple solution really!
