I won't hold you to it, but if there's any news, I'd like to know so I can decide if I should just mount to Tamiyas for now.

Thanks!
Looking at late April early May if testing goes well.

There is a carbon bar and post on the front side.

Do you have to put a fuse inline with that servo also? I have the KO PDS-2123FET, on my corally rdx had to put a fuse inline with it.

Now that I have my Exotek FGX-EFX chassis on the way I had another question...just a minor thing really...but I noticed on the FGX-EFX the lower chassis extends to just past the front suspension while the FGX and McKune chassis stops the lower chassis plate right below the front suspension...was there a specific purpose to extending it? I'm guessing probably to help brace the nose a bit better...

Are you guys wiring your rides with 12/14 or 16 gauge wire?

16 is plenty big enough for the amp draw from a 21.5.....

Yes, to add extra bracing to the nose area specifically to try and reduce any tweak. The more secure the ends of the top plate are the more likely flex will be generated at the center of the top plate which is ideal to reduce tweak. Of course it will make the nose more durable as well.

Hello, i was wonder if you all can help me out. I am trying to help a fellow racer with his F1R. We are running on a High-bite carpet track that is roughly 90x40. For about the first 3 mins of the race, the car is planted very well with fast times around 11.1-11.4 secs. The last 3 mins, the front tires fade out extremly and cause a push thru out entire corner. These lap times would be anywhere between 12.5 - 13.0 secs. Loss of about 1 sec per lap. What would cause this? And what setup advice do you have if not a setup for the chassis.

Here is the setup we are running as of now:

F1R Chassis w/F104 front end
15wt oil in side shock
i think 15 or 20 wt center shock with tamiya white spring(not sure on lb)
Med front springs on king pins
soft rear springs
2.5 caster
roughly 1 degree total of toe out
Pit tires 572 and 574

I am trying to use my car as a comparison to set his up. I am running avg of 10.9 - 11.3 sec laps thru the whole 6 min race on same track.

This is my setup:

F104 X1
Med front springs
Soft center spring
CRC 5000 tube grease on dampner
High-bite t plate
2.5 caster
1 deg total toe
pit tires 571 and 572


Thanks in advance for any help
