Yes sir I have ran it stock for over a year. But I must say the PSM parts lighten the car and give much better tuning options. Don't get me wrong the stock car is one of the best I have ever ran out of the box. But I can say I can tell that the car handels better with them. But yet again that is why option parts are made.

What is the differents CLX vs SX8 EVO?many parts?weight?

Sorry for my english.

Thanks
The parts are compatible. The primary difference is that the SX8 EVO will come as a race-roller, already setup for the US supercross-style tracks. Considering the vast tunability of the chassis, the roller will be a huge time-saver for racers who want to put the smack down as soon as they install their radio and power plant, instead of spending weeks trying to find the ideal set-up for most tracks.

Also, a few proprietary running changes will be made in time as well, such as aluminum parts having a black hard-anodized coating.

Default Cool

Thanks Chill I am sure this car will make a real splash in the Us Market,The car is so 2010 and that is what the racer needs and the way this car is optioned will give you a top fuel race car at a working mans price.

The street should come in around 479.00 to 499.00 and that is right in line with the rest of the solid cars on the market.

Thanks and enjoy your racing

Default Thanks Josh Body looks cool

Well this must say allot for this car because we have to well known companies all ready making tuning parts for the car.

They must feel we are going to have some great sells to invest there money and time into these parts .

I will say the package we have put together is awesome and I feel most consumers will not have to add one part to this car, but it is good to have options,it allows racers to try different things and enjoy there racing.

Thanks

Congrats to Shannon Amos in his 5th place finish at the GCS Rd 2 in Dalton Ga. There were some fast guys there. The SX8 was dialed. Mine ran great also.

Also congrats on his TQ and win in SC class.

Luther, you need to get that truck going.

Default option

http://www.fioroni-usa.com/productsgsclx.html

I can't wait to start running this car with all the option parts for it and TQ having parts I think it will be good, I hope it is as good as my MBX-6













Just a few things they sell for the TQ car, Ty Tessman, Jesse Robbers, and Travis Amezcua all use Fioroni parts!!!

Looks good Marcus. TQ already has some hop up parts for it. I know the shock towers are and I'm sure they will be cheaper.

no these parts were made for the GS Racing CLX, which TQ re-bagged. I've been waiting for this car to hit state side for about a year now... but i guess even if the name changes its the same car..

Cheaper is not always better IMO I run the Fioroni stuff in my MBX-6 and I like it. I went from changing clutch bell bearings in my MBX-6 every other race to them lasting well over a gallon just by running the Fioroni motor mount. It's always good to have options!!!
