Just got home and guess what greeted me at the front door?
The Rabbit kits are here. The quality looks pretty good. They could use a little CA on the edges, but are not ratty or jagged. I test fitted an F104 front on it and there is a bit of slop, but once the screws are installed I think it will be fine.
Will have them up on the store sometime tomorrow

I have the 35g 1* Camber plate, front wing stiffener and sway bar installed. I have extra weight already on the chassis. I'm hoping the "on power" steering shows up this week. I have the front spring set handy to help tune. Right now the balance is right at the forward edge of the rear tape slot. The Soft tires are mounted and ready to roll. I picked up the 6mm locking hexes, but they only fit on the rear without mods. I used a beveling bit to remove the restricting lip for the 2 front hexes and it worked perfectly. There is still 4mm of solid material sliding down over the axle to the pin. I'm hoping I can finally run it the way it should be run, full out.

I'm also impressed that 3Racing has announced new upper and lower arms and the rear damper spring set. That is a quick reaction in my book.

I set the lower front arm on the main chassis, and there is a bit of slop, but I did not screw it down, I don't think it will be an issue though.
I need to get an SGX kit to do a build, then I can give a more accurate assessment of the kit

It was a really good run but in the main a f103 beat me. His best lap time was 3 tenths better than I could do with the Fgx. But I make my car a little better every time I run it.

got my parts in from TQ Friday, and put the FGX back together today. Also added the pink blingy pink rear stiffener. Wish I could get to the track.
