Unfortunately I don't have pics ....I ordered the 18r shocks for the ifs from tqrcracing as these shocks were listed under the fgx part list ...but now I just checked and I need to order the fgx damper shafts and install them in the shock bodies ....but it still seems strange because I mounted the shocks upfront and they hit eachother ...I'm gonna rest my eyes and start up finishing the build tommorow .

Yes, it works with ride FGX / F10 rims.

Thanks.

If the AE shocks dont work on this car why does your website have them listed as parts that would work?

the AE 18R shocks front and rear work on the FGX IN THE REAR. Some guys run the 18r fronts in the rear and some guys, like me, run the 18r rears in the rear.
Either way you use the original FGX shock shaft.

Ok ya its just the tqrc website is a bit misleading because they show the front and the rear shocks under the fgx part list so one would assume if there showing front and rear that the front would be for the front and the rear would be for the rear!......anyways no big deal....what im wondering is i thought i saw an fgx with tamiya rears mounted on it....i cant seem to find the pic now ....just wondering if anybody has accomlished this with some macgivering?

The Associated shocks do work .. I believe they come in a set front / rear .. The rear shocks are prefered due to having more volume and longer shafts .. fronts can be used butt shaft is a little short ...

AE 18 shock(Front or Rear) works for rear shock of FGX.

I meant, AE 18 shocks are too big for the front shock of FGX IFS conversion.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hmm.........I wonder if we can convince Exotek to make an aluminum IFS plate that spaces the shock bodies far enough apart to us the associated shocks?

Hi

What the best way to set front ride height on the FGX and also adjusting camber with the exotek mod?

Thanks,
Adrian

Then your body wont fit??? I'd think more along the lines of different spring rates and use different grades of grease and spacers for smaller adjustments.

When I was driving the FGX this is what I did.

Camber is adjusted with the front link and caster the back link, I used the option FGX steel 3deg plate even with the IFS and using the EXOTEK IFS plate I didn't use their strenghtening plate, It was way stronger, caster can be adjusted there as well by moving back or forth on the plate.
The ride I adjusted with spacers on the king pin at the lower arm seeing the spring there is no longer in use with the IFS, use a smaller king pin, spacer under the arm raised ride height spacers on top lowered, droop was always at full
