I run my FK with a Ko Propo receiver.

To prevent glitching I putted a small peice of shrink tube over the recieverwire, so that there isn't any contact with the chassis.

Default ball diff for fk

I have a fk and i was wondering if the rear diff fits the front? I also was wondering if the evo2 rear diff works?

tqboy,

Understand that I am a paying BMI customer-I am not sponsored by them so I hope my comments are fair.

I went with the BMI 350 chassis because a buddy and I had tried 1/8" in batteries forward on a Warpspeed chassis and it felt better than stock (Much stiffer too), but still too easy to drive. So he had Jason at BMI make him a 350 forward chassis. At the same time, the XRay guys at the Snowbirds were running a chassis like this, and then JOsh Cyrul started running his chassis with batteries split Corally style. So all fingers were pointing towards batteries further forward for much higher corner speed. Also to a much stiffer chassis. To accomodate the stiffness, but not lose the roll centers, 3d cutouts were used by JAson. Now the car-on carpet and with JOsh's Nats set-up o it is very fast and also quite easy to drive (this owing a lot to the third position on the steering knuckles).

I have let all the fast guys at track drive it and everyone of them was impressed with the car. MOst said fast and easy to drive-the combination you want.

HOpe this helps,
Ray "windbag" Huang

Ray - can you snap a closeup pic of your steering knuckles with the third holes? I'd really appreciate it.

no, the extension is not molded into the steering hub. They are actually scrap pieces of graphite. I believe that there is a pic in the "ask josh thread", like on friday of last week that ray posted. I am using the 3 holes off of the carpet shock towers. just take 2 hole that line up with the sterring hubs and the third is where you screw the ball stud into. you will have to modify a button head screw to make then work

sorry guys,

it was the bmi thread on 6/25 - rays post of pics

I used it at the Reedy Race. Works fine on asphalt. You just have to setup your car.
