Ditto, Rob. Just got my FK together last week and it's weighing in at:
1276g_w/o Body and PT
1390g_with Body
1399g_with Body and PT

I was really impressed with the car after I put all the electronics on. I threw it onto my hudy balancing pins and it was a perfect 50/50 from left to right. It was about 51.5/49.5 from front to back (measured the centerpoint between the center of the wheels and worked from there).

First time on the track, she was a little fishy. Changed my EPAs to 70 and she was spot on in stock form. I'm going to experiment with springs and droop this weekend. Also going to try Litespeed and Ole's setups.

just wanted to post my recent findings, the new XRC chassis and top brace is insane. I recommend it to everybody, the chassis is stiff and tweak is barely an issue.

The only other concern I have, and am wonderign if anybody else has this problem, but the lower shock screws, that screw into the a-arms have a tendency to strip out, anybody else finding this. I think the screw needs to be longer personally.

I saw a guy on another board that had bought a screw from somewhere that was longer and had a button head on it for mounting his shocks, I thought it looked much more secure, I am not too confident in thie mounting setup, but I could be wrong as I havent put too many laps on the car yet....

I had the same problem with the front shock screws until I went to my local hardware store and got a longer button head screw with a washer and it has never happened since.

I hope this helps.

The grub screw on the a-arms for the shocks may be bottoming out-but you dont feel it-so when you keep tihtening it-you just strip out the nicely formed threads you just made. The screw idea is a good one, but then your constantly screwing and unscrewing into the plastic.

Options are to drill the hole a little deeper so grub wont bottom out.

Put a little CA on the grub after a couple months of running if they are starting to loosen.

Never take the grub screw out-just loosen the threaded ball with your 3mm allen.

I run the KO VFS-2000, which is about the same size as the GT7. I'll snap a pic of my car tonight and post it here.

Are you just looking to see how it's mounted or what?

John- you running the long arms on that car?..

Dado11g- The new Xray 3.5mm chassis is off the hook! Ive been running my xray with it, and wouldnt even think for a sec to change it up with anything else.

In the hands of a skilled driver an Xray T1 original is still a formidable racing machine...

don't worry about the FK being made obsolete...

I don't care what comes out..if you can't make the car competitive....it's the driver
it's the driver
