The IFS mounts I'm also working on will be sold separately and will be cnc alloy and include a sway bar mount. This should be available the end of Dec.

The IFS mount set will fit both the Exotek EFXv1 and EFXv2 and should be under $20.

Sorry for the delay but it is holiday shipping season and 3racing releasing the new ifs set so late didnt help

Thanks for your support!
Repost.

(IFS mount will be more like Jan 14th)

I just ordered one.
I wonder if the balancer plug will fit thru the slot.
If it's a shorty pack then yes but not recommended because one small slip and you'll have short since carbon fiber is conductive

TOP EFFORT THERE MIKE, Keep em' coming.

QUESTIONS?

1. How do we order a top deck only as i wanted to order top deck and whole new version in one order? (broke old top deck hitting a wayward mini), can there be a area for parts on your site for ease of ordering?

2. Have you looked at different carbon colors, and if wanted, can this be a special order option, would like one in a gold or a yellow color.

CHEERS WILL

Hi guys, been staring at my stock FGX for the past 2 days. Trying to figure out how to corner faster.

The front axle slop. - I think I found a permanent cure. The superglue axle tip does not last long. What I did was get the inner ring of an old front bearing, then sandwich that between the two front axle bearings inside the steering knuckle. No more slop. And can tighten wheel nut without fear of crushing the bearings.

Stiffen the rear. - Without changing kit springs, I found that inserting a spacer on the lower ball (that connects the lower part of the shock to the cantilever) stiffens the rear noticeably without need to change to a stiffer spring.

Now if I can just chop off another 100 grams...

I think the Tp4300 65c packs (250grams) are a good choice for those 10minute Mains....

It's a 21.5t motor, pretty much any battery can get it through a 10mins main.
The only reason to use a long pack is that, there are some race I know in People's Republic of China, that has 30mins A main race. Shorty pack may reach low voltage and slow down in the last few minutes.

*shorty packs are 190-200g. around 100g lighter than long pack.

I don't know about the legality of the Shorty pack under ROAR, but it's good to know....
