I have to agree... even though my tires are showing wear, the performance is still really good...

send your request via email so i can keep up! im ordering the car today!

Those of you that know me and my history know that i like to keep things as real as possible so although i may make a conversion to use the 104 front, it will not be on my personal car for more than a week of testing! I cant wait for the cantilever kit to come out!

what are the preferred tires on asphalt? and texas what is the best tire combo on your track so far?

guess it didn't take long to find someone interested. Too bad it wasn't some of your friends. They are missing out. Better find some more.

Great! Instant parts support!! I'm excited that your gonna look into making parts for this too. Me and Racer Robert are going to keep you busy in the pits at the 2 races at Mikes. He has ideas, and I break sht. Lots to talk about. You will see first hand what can be improved in no time, and have the know-how to get it done.

Glad It's going to someone who's gonna do something with it. I really like this chassis a lot. Just no one to race with. Yesterday I raced my FF03 and was watching the M05 and M06 races which interested me. I figured I would get more use out of one of those. I still plan to pick up another FGX in the future. Hopefully with a IFS. One of my buddy's got a F104 which got me to pick up the FGX. But the F104 was such a nightmare compared to the FGX that he sold it which made everyone else in my group not want an F1. Anyways, like I said I still plan on picking up another one at some point. Have fun you guys!
