I do hope that was the crash rather than the incident I was involved in

The gear attached to the spur is larger than .48. They do not state what it is.

Nice job AI

Love the Lotus body! Did you use the decal set from F1 Paintlab?

How does the car run?

Default Need Urgent advice

I just got my FGx in today. I ordered the Foam Wheels and the F104 donuts....the donuts are too large. I have a big race next week and I need time to order/procure the correct parts to get a couple foam sets ready. What are guys using for foam tires on this car??

I may have an FGX by the weekend. Waiting for TQrcRacing.com site to come back online to look for tires and parts.

Does anyone have an FGX and an F104 that can see if the F104 body will fit, or how much modifying it will take?

The 104 body will fit... The body post holes are in a different spot... and you will need to cut the front side nose differently for the suspension arms to clear... also the FGX chassis slightly protrudes from the shell, but not bad... also looks like the 104 body is a little shorter in length, so depending on how you position the body you will have more or less motor area exposed...

I'd check with TQ. Maybe narrowed F103 foams would fit.

thanks

First pic shows the motor mount side. Again, can see still plenty of room for gearing, although I think thats only a 31t pinion in that picture.. Can again see the number of shims in place under the camber mount, and I've also switched to a captive camber link ball stud (I'm wary of screwing only into carbon). Roll bar is also mounted, although the bottom of the bar mounts needed a little material removing to fit flat onto the camber plate, but nothing a few seconds with a knife couldn't sort.

Next up is the 104 front end, pretty standard fare in that shot, although by the end of yesterday I had converted it into a lowered camber plate version to help tame the front down.

Third is another more general rear end shot, can see the roll bar more clearly here. I had to use a long button headed screw, although would have preferred some long countersunk ones instead. Roll bar links I mounted to the rear hole on the wishbone.

Fourth shot shows the general electrics layout. I've mounted the ESC on the right, reciever on the left, mainly to route the motor wires so they avoid the shocks. I've used 16AWG wire all through the car (makes it nice and simple), and with the battery I'm using even the balance hole is exposed, so don't need to removed the cells (which are taped in place).

Fifth shot is the bodyshell (along with my X1). The FGX body fits fine (given the rear body mounts are in the right place anyway!), just need to drill a new hole in the front for the 104 wing (which is missing in that picture).

they are 12mm Hexes... so standard TC fitment. 104 wheels won't fit, as they are a bigger hex (trust me, I've tried already )
