=_=exotek conversion with upgrade motor mount & rear bulkhead?
It may work, barely, but not suggested from exotek's site.

How did you get it to fit? I just went back to the plastic bulkheads because I didn't like the motor mount for the alloy bulkheads. I'd love to find a way to use the stock mount with the alloy bulkheads!

What I did was I notched the stock motor mount. See picture. You do not want to take off to much material. Just enough so is a snug fit with the mount on the bulkhead that's it....

Oops one more thing. I drilled a hole under the motor mount and I put a metal dowl in it. Drilled a hole in the chassis for the dowl. So now the motor mount won't flex...
The hardest part of the mod was press fitting the dowl on to the motor mount....

I put tamiya front knuckles on my FGX and the wheels do not turn as much because of the shorter length. How can I correct this?

Ed the difference between stock and the Tamiya knuckle in throw looks like a lot but it really isn't. You shouldn't notice a difference. But if you want you can Dremel a little bit off of the lower arm to compensate.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my FGX from the ground up. New V2 Exotek chassis, new front suspension, new Exotek steering knuckles, new Exotek rear hubs, and new Exotek rear upper suspension links. I'm finding on the front end the knuckles hit the push rod mount on the arm before the knuckle gets to full throw. From the looks of it, it looks like the stock steering knuckles would hit as well. Has anyone found a way around this? Has anyone tried the inner pushrod mount and Dremel'd off the outer mount?
