Just laid out a shorty pack 90*, center mounted servo and rear mounted ESC on my second chassis. It will need literally one hole drilled and countersunk and shorter steering linkage to make this work. The servo will end up being mounted in one of the battery stop holes and the drilled hole. The body has more space in this layout than it does stock. It sure seems like better use of space, but only testing will tell if it makes a difference. I hope to have it ready by Saturday. I'll get some pictures of the layout as it's put together.

You guys rock. Kinda OT, but is there any chance you guys will carry the f109 body? Seems like the only place to get one is direct from 3racing

I gave up looking for f109 bodies and started using f103 and 104 bodies.

Wow.

Good thing he doesn't list his location, or my 'squinty' Asian wife would have to beat his ass.

I can't believe someone actually posted this?!?!

he has been banned numerous times for the same racial bullshit. just ignore the zit and it will eventually die...... dont put coals on the fire . everytime this happens he doesnt stop until he is banned. Moderator just nip this in the bud and ban him ASAP.

I gotta say I'm liking what I'm seeing from Troy McKune. That's excellent!

Between McKune designs and MantisWorx, we should have plenty of options to upgrade the FGX and make it THE F1 car to have!
