Good work on the lipo layout, I may try and cut some pieces. Maybe with this configuration your setup is essentially stiffer?

Had no way to check the stiffness before, I would think by removing the two rear pillars the chassis stiffnes might be less, but the car`s handling have improved a lot. I also run x-ray front A arms, together with a Megane body(rules dictate) and the car is pretty much like point and place where I want it now.

3Racing makes this cool new Civic Type R hatchback - but I have not seen it available in the US yet.



Tamiya makes VW Golf and Scirocco's that are very nice

Good luck!

Need help, I can't get tweak out for the life of me. I use a rod and an avid plate for all of my touring cars, so I'm pretty familiar. Do you guys just run the car like this? I'm thinking with no weight in the back this is normal? I'm open to suggestions, front and rear is getting repeat measurement as shown in the picture, bubble to the left no matter what side. Hudy tweak is 100% leveled, even tried using the hudy tweak master that came with my setup station (the one without bubble) same thing.

I got it sorted out for the most part. Anyways 1132 grams setup for USGT, body and usgt wheels not shown in the pic l. I can't believe I had this sitting for quite sometime and only ran it once. There's no weight limit in USGT for fwd now, kinda inspired me to build a super light car in future.

Im likely going to order the newest V2 but I'd like to know if there is anyone running this new version on carpet and what your experience has been.

I am interested in trying a FF car in USGT given the new rules coming out in August.

Well Im glad I posted before I purchased. There seems to be very little online community for this car.

Please disregard my previous question.

Sorry nobody responded. I think the problem is that the new car was released only a month ago and carpet season has ended. Most places that race fwd are in asia and on pavement, they also run 13.5s in them.

I have run the v1 in USGT on carpet for a year. I can say no other fwd pulls as hard as it does. It can be made very light (mine is 1154g) and it handles better then my 4wd usgt cars. It can and will run with the 4wds.

I have ordered the v2 and wont run it till the new season. So i cant tell you what the new one is like. If it as good as the previous model I'll be very happy.

Anybody knows where in the world I can get a spare Chassis for my FF Pro? Nothing on Race-opt`s website! I have e-mailed them and heard nothing yet.
