Thanks, I will look at the adjustments.

Default FGX Bendage

Ran my FGX/EXO/IFS acouple of time now and I'm bending the lower A-Arm ball studs. The ones that mount the inner piviots. The plastic adjustment bushiings and the piece them mount in are not breaking but the studs are bending. I know I shouldn't hit the boards but the stock front end and my other cars don't have problems with my driving, at lest not as mouch!

Are there stronger 4.8mm ball studs or is there another way to beef this up? Car seems to run ok with the stock froint suspension, I'm slow but it is fun to drive!!

@aarcobra,
I was looking on the TQRCRacing site and they sell 4.8mm aluminum balls that are threaded all of the way through, so you can use steel or whatever other material to affix them to the chassis.

Posted on 3racing facebook but I'll ask you guys too, anyone know if the RIDE preglued R1 front and rears fit the F113?
Also the space for the ESC looks pretty tight, anyone know if a Reventon Pro with a fan installed will fit in there?

This thread is dedicated to 3Racing FGX, I don't know if people here own a F113 which is a different chassis.
Anyway, good luck in you search (From the manual, the Hex for rear wheels is 14mm on F113).

Get the premounted set for the F104 and you're good to go.

Duh...I have some of that type! I guess since the stock FGX ones were the studded type it never crossed my mind to use the thru hole type! Thanks.

Ned,
Since you have some and I haven't built my IFS yet...........

Hope the club race in Toledo goes well tomorrow. Brad is supposed to be bringing the chassis and decals with him.

Can anybody share a base setup for mid grip asphalt.

Running blinky 21.5

Exoteck chassis, alloy bulkheads, exoteck top and bottom front arms,

Shimizu tyres

What springs and shock oil?

What camber,caster and toe




Cheers

ChrisK,

Biggest factor is tyre choice. My previously used setups at WSRC , were polar opposites.
Use Shimizu grooved tyres : tune steering out
Use Ride slicks : tune to maximise steering

For Ride : I used stiffest rear springs and kit diff oil in rear shocks / 2 hole pistons
2* rear toe for happy medium. Max caster, 2 or 3* camber plate

Thanks I went for something bright as we race at night, I like the red bull scheme but to dark under lights.
