Ok, but that fan has to blow through alot of stuff before reaching the motor at an angle.... I'll take my chances without a fan and save a few grams... 1226 grams is way overweight compared to 1050grams: I think my car is around 1070grams now, and I am still looking to shave weight, not the other way around...Lighter tires (4g less per tire) would do the trick..... Happy racing....

TRG117 build is getting along nicely. I'll be revising the front IFS a little bit; I find the stock dampers a bit to chunky.

Servo is detachable; speedo will be stacked vertically to preserve the narrow chassis design.

Can't wait to try this next month on our local track. Been used to FGX's ride and feel.

Only the battery door and the post are in the way. You have to live with the post and the first part everyone removes is the battery door anyway. So if you have an FGX and insist on a fan, it can be done.

That being said, I have never had to run a fan on my FGXs. I've sold one, but the other is still one of my favorites to tinker with. I've found that opening the airbox over the drivers head provides enough air directed right at the motor. The car is still competitive and the lower the traction, the more it shines. Your results may vary.

I like the open airbox idea, but I will open all three boxes: over the driver's head, and both side dams... I might lose a few grams in the process ... Thanks....

Do they still make pre-made F1 rear light kits? I couldn't find the TQ version in stock and haven't found any others =/

Does that TRG117 have an attempted 2017 style front wing or are my eyes deceiving me?

It looks different to the style on their website.

Only part I could find till now was associated/kimbrough 66t:

Actually I'm looking for 60t but anything smaller than 66t would be great!!!
Bit late, but I had a similar request at the F104 Pro topic and got a good answer;

I had the same issue with the 48dpi, it is very hard to find a small spur where you can use 12 or more balls.
76T 64p is 57T 48p in diameter, so actually smaller than 60T 48p. I need 1,9 FRD on our track. Just took delivery and it all fits very nicely.

Cheers,

Team Associated just released a light kit. Should be in stores soon, I assume.

I believe most of the light openings in the wings are 5mm.

OK, here's the correct item:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-PCS-5mm-R...UAAOSw5IJWcxAT

For $5, I get 20 at a time. I give them away to new F1 drivers at the track as a thank you for supporting the class.

EDIT: changed to correct RED flashing light color.

You are correct. I get the red ones not the white ones. Arrgh...I'll get it right eventually!

My point is that you can get them CHEAP. You do have to solder a receiver plug onto them. Or if you can add a receiver plug if you have the right tools.
