Hum, it should be difficult to realize, there will have not enough space for the battery, esc,...
Maybe you can draw a plan of what you say, it will be interessant to see

Thanks a lot
I meet someone that could realize the shaft tonight, I will also ask him to make the rear bulkhead and the motor mount (I have to make the bearing hole bigger).

Stay tuned

G-rem .. I am working on a new chassis for mine fgx . found that my exotek chassis has too much flex in the rear motor area . Your motor mount does seem to be a bit foward , im going to push the layshaft back about 3 mm more ..

Default FGX belt drive conversion

Hi, I have put some time over the weekend putting together the belt drive converstion....ordered the bits and after a long wait....well, some questions
The lay shaft is 2 mm short
The bearings are not listed
The attachment is not shown...? How did you attach the D3 ?
The converstion takes away the engine mount bracing, the mounts move and allow the rear suspension to be unstable.

Can you show some construction pics ?. Is this a concept or are you using the car.

Yeah, I think about it too, but unfortunately, I don't have the good stuff to work on carbon parts. I think I'll give my chassis to someone who works on carbon to make a new chassis 2.5mm stiffer in stead of the 2.25 original one. And a 2mm new upper plate
We'll see...

Default FGX blt conversion

Hi spring 71. Do you think you could post some close ups of the rocker arm mods you made. Mine seem to interfere with the diff gear. Also I would like to know if your 15 tooth layshaft gear hits your diff gear as well and if so what did you do to fix that.
Thanks.

Yes, too much torque steer with 2wd. Abandoned the project even though it really was efficient drivetrain for 21.5.
