No rules as far with track width. Only rules 21.5, non ramping esc and rubber tires. Thanks

I think he was asking about car width - some cars are wider at the front which aids handling

I'm being cocky to begin with. I think it's just adding the extra TLC and know how. Basically I like to race with the underdog type chassis and see what happens. I've seen the f103's and f104's. Just too many people using the same chassis. I like the extra variety. If I've confused you guys it's just I can't explain my logically to some to make sense. Thanks.
If you REALLY want to drive an underdog car then get you an FGX

Mine is just a dog.

Might be a different story if we go to more motor someday.

Then you can improve the underdog upgrading it to I-mola or Suzu-ka.....so the underdog will become a pack leader.
F1-paintlab will receive a pre run Suzu-ka in a matter of days.....

Btw, I-mola can be turned into Suzu-ka...

I can vouch for the Fenix Racing I.mola design. Fit-and-finish are incredible.
I wasn't trying to detract from the WRC car at all with my comment. I think it's a world class car. It just hasn't seen the popularity in the US yet. The rear suspension on the stock WRC cars have been quite innovative. The rear suspension on the Fenix chassis is even MORE innovative!
Do yourself a favor, folks. Check out the WRC car and the Fenix I.mola and Suzu.ka chassis. You won't be disappointed!

No it's an Exotek EFX /FGX with custom belt conversion of course But even before he installed the belt he was fast.

Sean posted the modifications in the FGX thread.

You mean local part support? Only you can answer that question as you know the shops in your area. I've found lately though that I can get parts just as quickly from HongKong, Japan, and California, in 7-10 business days, regardless. I've been racing Tamiya and SpeedPassion for the last two years and have never had a back ordered part from my favorite suppliers. As far as reliability....our local track has some pretty decent drivers (indoor carpet) so there hasn't been any rough stuff. No spontaneous and unexplained repetitive failures to report.

If you have one of them next time you come to Hotshot (maybe the GORC?) bring that thing!! It looks really neat on their website.

Ivan always finds one for the big races. But we don't run F1 in Calgary sadly. I am trying to get it run in Western Canada as it is a big recognized class now. It would be easy to copy Au/USA rules. I am going to start running my new car more with the VTA cars for fun.
