It is not as refined as a competition (pan) car. So i guess a IRS car have more potential. And that potential goes up with the power.

Correct, the original fgx's thick gears with the plastic upper deck are the main cause of non refinement...I hope the evo will remedy these issues, along with the excess weight....It should be faster than any DD F1 car then.....

I have an fgx with an exotech chassis. The car is fun and on a small track with lots of turns, it is pretty good, with the exception of weak upper arms. I have modified mine for better durability, but it is still just a fun car. As for competing with direct drive cars a more open layout, it is not even close, especially with the new rule of 25.5 motors. I put a 13.5 motor in mine and it is fast with that, but again with legal motor it is not competitive with direct drive cars.

Is it any fun to drive with a 25.5 motor? 25.5 is close to a silvercan surely?

They also did a nitro version of that chassis, I got to see one several years ago.

In my opinion, if you race on a small track with lots of turns, it will probably be O.K, but like I said you will need to do something with the front suspension as it is its weakest point. On a longer flowing track the direct drive cars will be way faster with a 25.5 motor. I propose doing a 1 cell with boost class, this may make it a little more fun.

I love my three or so FGX's. I still haven't run my McKune chassis one. If someone is pining to get a McKune one, send me a PM.

fgx is never for meeting those race rules, so I don’t think they will consider these n change the whole design. For those organized races, all rules are favoring solid axles f1s, fgx can never win with 21.5 blinky mode, on a high grip carpet with slow tracks layout, so needn’t change to suit the ruled races markets. We play fgx on our own tracks with unlimited timing n using 8.5t, very quick. It is for realistic look n race for freely tuned tracks..
