So I managed to ping one of the shock absorber clips across my apartment, no idea where that went... Anyone got any idea where I can grab a replacement/or has any of the FGX-111C parts in stock?

Is there any easy way to put the rear diff in this car? Mines super loud at all times. Also with a 25 tooth pinion/39 spur the motors pulling off 150 after about 10 min. Other people on my track with FGX's are 31/39 pulling off 120 degrees. Would the mesh of the diff cause this or just the motor being old and going out?

One thing you might want to check is when you tighten down the screws that hold the seal of the diff... You can easily over tighten this causing undue friction in the gears... try to loosen each screw a quarter turn and then feel the diff as you spin it, then loosen another 1/4 turn... obviously you don't want it so loose the seal will leak, but there is a happy place in there... as your loosening it you will feel the gears spinning more freely...

+1 I had this issue. Wheels should spin without pinion.

also check your gear mesh on the diff. its adjustible with the cam plates on the sides of the diff.

Can someone tell me what size turnbuckle wrench I need? I had purchased the 3mm one only to find out it is too small. Do I need the 4mm or something bigger? I see 3R has a turnbuckle wrench that is 4mm with a 4.1 gap. Is this the one I need or can I get another brand 4mm?

The Tamiya F201 springs work well... That is if you can find them The springs are a little longer but if you cut the black shock shaft tube to compensate... Not sure who makes a current spring that works ?

Would you happen to know which one of those springs is the most stiff? I have a 18t at home.

Default pleasent suprise

I just recieved my weekly order from TQ and one of the items I ordered was the hop up 1 degree camber plate. I figured it would be metal and assumed aluminum. Turns out its a nice heavy metal with a nice shiny plating. Even is marked with 32 grams. Good way to add some weight to the front end and keep the camber ball ends from walking around.

The conversion chassis will replace FGX chassis with a new carbon chassis.
The rear of the chassis will stay the same as FGX
