Moped is way too dank to sell. Plus it's my means of transportation to Mark's in the summer

Hey Jari, glad to hear you got a place and are settling down there, look forward to some new ideas and designs... How about a flex plate, tweak plate that is solid, no slots, for less flex, stiffer side to side... Just an idea. Actually one part people might want, is a carbon fiber front brace for the CRC front end, for the new upper arms that can mount more inboard, I know Joe Sr. tried one of these front ends and the brace part did not fit you chassis, was made for the CRC chassis, one other part you could offer people is a replacement rear lower pod plate for the Corally 12x, cause they break so easy.... Heck, a whole 12x chassis might be cool....Just make a rear pod plate to run the Corally rear pod plates, and people could convert thier 12x to a Flexi...

Team MMR did very well at the 08 carpet nats.


MMR Driver Mitch put the FF07 into the Big Show for Mod 12th


Jari while pulling away in the 12th Mod B collected the board in t \he BUs Stop and succeeded in readjusting the front end to have both wheels on the same side of the car.

MMR Driver Jari also put the FF07 in the big show for 12 Suoer Stock.


Many FF07 drivers did very well, Thanks goes to Tony, Brian, Dale, Mike, BIlly,Janet, Randy, Tyler and all the others that went into making the race enjoyable for all and for such great product support. The FF07 has once again proven its ability to perform at the top level.

FF07's take 1st and second in Mod 12th at the MN State Champs


Jeff and Andrew turned the fastest laps and held the top two spots swaping leads from start to finish.

5 of the 10 A main Mod cars were FF07.

Excellent job by all drivers and excellent job from all the Factory Team Molzer Mowery Drivers and support crew.

Gotta say myself I love my Jari car, thanks again buddy for the great chassis, here is my setup from this race...
Assoc type front end, IRS new arms, .018 spring, servo flat, middle and back on saver, medium ballstuds on steering blocks, 5 degree caster blocks, max caster. I also have an extra set of cut down caster blocks in between arm and blocks, with a Traxxas ballcup for an outer link, makes a longer upper arm like the CRC.
Jaco Prism black fronts, treated with Jack the Slipper about 3/4ths full, I felt the Jack was more consistant in the front, didn't pick up more traction during a run, same with the black front tires... front tires finished the main at 39.6mm, front ride hieght was 4mm or so...
Rear- Assoc thick T-bar, run with tweak screws, and 3 screws in tbar to pod for strength, one .020 thick washer under front pivot, front shock mount is Assoc, little taller than the stock Jari part, blue spring, 30 wt or so oil, not sure there, 10,000 wt assoc oil in the CRC tubes, lots of pod droop, 3mm, chassis and pod level when ready to run.
Rear tires were Jaco Prism yellow, that's all I ran in the rear all weekend, they worked well and hung on the whole race, in spite of wearing ALOT every run, treated full with paragon. Rear tire finished up at 41.4 mm, with a HUGE delam spot in the middle of one tire, surprised I finished the race... ride height was about 5mm in back, I like lots of ride height...
Motor was a Ti 10 single, ended up at 40mm rollout and about 12degrees timing, made time well, I was trying to trigger smooth on the infield, but pulled full every time down the straight...
Overall this setup to me was easy to drive fast, other cars had a few faster laps here and there but I felt I was real consistant with this setup, it was very stable under braking and accelerating, it gave up a little on turn in but left corners well, it was a little unstable over the 2 big mid corner bumps on the track, probably due to the stiff spring and TBar,but I just drove them more carefully as I didn't wanna change the handling anywhere else... Body was a Proto speed12...
Some pics.....

Thanks Jari, I don't really try to do a "neat" wiring job, just tuck everything away and try to make it easy to work on or change things, the transponder is on velcro so it can go to the other car also... I ran brushed cause I didn't have another BL ESC, nor did I wanna switch BL motors , nor did I wanna buy a mod BL....
Damage report.... I have only managed to break one FF specific part on this car in owning it for a year, I broke one lower pod plate, it's holding up well, I really like the seperate bumper front body mount with "bumper fuses"( aluminum screws), if you hit something hard you just pop a few screws, easy to fix.... The motor plate has stayed straight through some hard hits at the Barn, musch more so than my newer chassis
Thanks again Jari!
