I have seen alot of different cars run on the old grey carpet. None of them are as fast as the xray on the older carpet. Now on the new black carpet the xray requires alot of setup changes to remain fast. But the box stock setup on the xray on the grey carpet is fast!!!

I run on gray carpet, and since building and running my fxm last month the car is incredible, have set track records each time out. We just had a F1 race day at one of my local tracks and the top 3 cars were the FXM, and 4th and 5th place were FX's. I recommend this car to anyone racing F1

What about got low grip on road with the 21.5T? I've never seen the FXMs before.

Thank you for all information. How about VBC FX and FXM? Is it a lot of different? I'm have Tamiya F104W GP and want to get the new car.

The FXM is the latest version, has totally different rear pod axle setup it's the same setup as the Lightning 12m.
