@Ed, yes. Yes, I did. Always good to have a spare.

My son and I had fun with the FGXs yesterday. I should not have changed gearing on mine. I switched to a 25 from a 22 pinion. Way to big of a jump. Of course I left my gears at home... The car was a little too stiff for the track, but I just drove it anyway for the day. It was still really good. I was my son's first time racing this chassis and he loved it. His was sprung softer and geared right. He had a better fast lap than I did. We had no issues keeping up with the direct drive cars on the long straight. We just need more practice.

Everybody seems to be selling their fgx, I wonder why...

Hmmm, exotek said nothing about the ifs mount, I wonder if he is still making a part for it because its not in the v2 chassis.

Do you race on carpet?

Yes, Ozite. There is lumpy concrete due to a crack in the floor under the carpet in one corner and the car is not taking it well. Normally I can go flat out in a section like this, straight to sweeper. I'm thinking one step softer spring and add switch to the 2 hole piston in the damper. I'll probably have to go up a mil in ride height so the rear end doesn't drag due to chassis role.

Exotek's page for the v2 chassis says a lot about IFS.

Ok, so it says on the v2 page? I'll re look at it. I read it from my phone so it's hard to read the entire page.

It says they are coming out with a IFS lower mount set and an alloy ball stud brace.

I give up too much to the direct drive f1s on the straights. Will probably sell it and go with the TA04 v2. after all the FGX is a pan car trying to be a touring car.

Ta04v2..... F104v2.
I enjoy both fgx and f1r. I want to get a f104v2 also some day. It's too late to ask Santa to bring me one. About 33 years too late. LOL.

Exotek fgx v2 chassis is available for ordering.
I just ordered one.
I wonder if the balancer plug will fit thru the slot.

I'm a bit confused; what is the difference between the Exotek FGX-EFX V1 and the V2?
I don't see any changes! The IFS mount will be a separate part from the chassis, and the adjustable upper front arms shown in the pic of the chassis are not part of the chassis set, but are also sold separately; so what are the differences between V1 and V2?

Am I missing something?

They look different but functionally I don't know what the improvements are.
The lower deck is narrower and the front nose section has countersunk screws instead of button heads.

The sneak peek at the IFS plate looks good to me!
