Default Here is how the dude got painted.

I tried to spray paint the helmet modeling Michael-Schumacher but it came just ok.

Thanks! It was actually at the brand new indoor carpet track in Portland, OR called Premier RC Raceway & Hobbies. We'll likely also be racing at Timezone II when they open up later in August.

Goes to show how durable the FGX is.

Yep! It's an excited time for sure Club racing during the week at Premier and the UF1/VTA series, and then larger races on Saturday's up at Timezone. Now, just need to find time to race offroad too

Finally, here is my new main chassis and upper deck for the belt drive conversion (exotek kit on the left). I don't have it in my hands right now but it seems to look pretty cool, I can't wait to try it



Cheers,
G-rem

Very nice. Did you use the adhesive hole protectors to mark the holes you wanted for manufacture?

This is awesome, G-rem. I am currenly busy with sim-racing that's why I have not updated the belt-drive yet.

Cheers

Thanks a lot guys, I am very excited to try it, I hope the current design of the drive belt conversion I selected will suit in the reality as nice as I though

Yes, you're totally right

In fact, I didn't manufacture myself the chassis, so I had to draw a plan with all the modifications, write comments to be sure the conversion would be understood like I imagined it and I used this blank adhesive to mark the holes I wanted to keep...

I hope to get it in my hands quickly, then I will take pictures and write a "how-to" to convert your FGX into a belt drive transmission

Cheers

Seriously I can't wait either. Very cool. I have been quite busy, but had been planning something similar. I'm always looking for new things to throw across my little CNC Router. I've done some 1/18th scale Road and Oval chassis work but have not cut anything bigger yet. This here definitely has my attention.
