Default Xpress Execute FT1S 1/10 FWD

Many people have been looking forward to our FT1S after the release of our competition grade. Scheduled for release early December, featuring some must have options out of the box such as aluminum steering posts and roll bars. The msrp of this kit will be 119.9USD, making this car great for bashing or club racing!

I ran my FT1S over the weekend, drives just like the FT1 and I matched the lap times. This car is a bargain.

I did have a minor issue with the build - even at the tightest setting, the drive belt is a bit loose compared to the FT1. Some of our locals have stripped the belts and pulleys already on other brand cars due to the belt being too loose. Time will tell if this is a problem on this car.

Send me a FWD car to test in the USGT class here in Canada and I will report back.

Seems like they were racing this on traction rolling grip and didnt have any problems.

I ran it over the weekend again, and the belt seems to have stretched a bit. It's even looser now. It's loose enough that it rubs against the motor as it balloons out a bit, and I heard it skip once or twice under hard braking, but it hasn't let go yet.

I just checked couple of our team driver's cars and their belts seem fairly tight. They are running low diffs, can you try that and see if it helps?

It's as low and tight as it goes.
