Chassis conversion for the 3Racing FGX F1 chassis .
The conversion chassis will replace FGX chassis with a new carbon chassis.
The rear of the chassis will stay the same as FGX
For the front end components with it will require a Tamiya F104 pieces
Who makes this conversion?

The rabbit is poor quality, holes are not even in the right spots and needs prep work. Hopefully this kit will be better

I personally don't, but have only seen 1 pic of a car with a fan on the motor, kind of an eyesore...
If your car is overheating, you probably need to change your gearing, or find the appropriate motor for the gearing you want to go with. I purchased a new bigger pinion gear and never even got the car to up to full trigger acceleration but it was always overheating immediately and behaved funny. Went back to the smaller gear and its humming along full throttle and tons of race time. Motor is hot but not scorching, and my ESC doesn't shutdown either.

Not an official 3Racing chassis. It is a Sakura Rabbit conversion from a third party. No formal company website for the manufacturer.

Glued up a set of Shimizu grooved softs as recommended and put on the sway bar kit. Went straight to the stiffest sway bar. I am ready for another try Saturday! I'm hoping the 1* camber plate shows up tomorrow. That would be a plus for sure.

I have been waiting for the word to be able to announce this.
And now that I have been given the go ahead, I am very proud to announce that F1Paintlab has been chosen to be the exclusive US Distributor for the Formula Rabbit conversion kits. The first shipment is due to arrive today, 10 kits. I will have them up on the online store later this weekend.
