Hi.....
I don't believe people have given up on the car so much as a lot are scale/ model builders rather then racers. There is a lot of interest in F1 cars in general as is evident by the contued activity on the F1 pics discussion etc thread.
I for one am trying to get the money together to get this car .... but then I am a big F1 fan in general anyway.

Which ones? The adjustable ones? I have the adjustable ones and have had no issues, other than the pivot balls being to tight.

Hi all,

I'm planning to buy the FGX because this is the only formula 1 rc car that's the closest car to the reality...

But I'd like to know which part do I need to make a belt drive transmission like this:








And what are the parts between the rear turnbukle and the damper axle?

Best regards,
G-rem
