To move the right set you need to do somthing with the servo, what you guys think. Anybody tried anything like this or at least thought about rear bias to weight distribution.
This isn't my FK, this is only myT1R (with FK chassis) but this is how I have mine layed out, and im very happy with it, I did have the receiver on top of my servo originally, but I wanted lower CG, I think this is pretty well standard setup, it works great for me.

Robz,

That is a pretty cool idea, but have you run it that way yet? I would be somewhat concerned about the transponder wires may move around upon crashing and then may start rubbing on the belts.

Please keep in mind that the XRC is thicker than the BMI chassis so Xray would have to do more milling to lower it's components.

If you ask, BMI will mill out anything yoiu want for 10- 15 bucks.

Still cheaper than anything out there.

I've been using their Ti screws for a few weeks now and they're the best that I've used so far--the heads don't strip from being too soft like the other brands I've tried. I got them from AllSpeed Hobbies.

I have been running the BMI with very good results.As far as the bearings go,I love the stock bearings and will only think about replacing that one bearing that goes bad at the layshaft with a ceramic......maybe.Other then that,I wish I would have detoured around the Shuie Oh well!See you soon Stu!

The only problem I was told about the Jwerks Racing Concepts screw kit, is it doesnt come with the 2.5mm screws to hold the wheels on!. Where can I get some for the wheels, since I think the chrom on the black washer would look HOTTT!

The RCScrewz stainless screw kit is awesome. It comes with all the screws on the car and I had just under half the box left when I was done replacing all the screws. You get more that $22 worth of screws. Great way add weight to your FK to bring it up to weight.

Look in my sig or go to BMI thread. Jason is a great guy to deal with. The easiest and fastest way to have your questions answered is to call them directly.

Correct me if im wrong.
But if i remember correctly, stainless screw is made out of mild steel.

I happen to use stainless screw before on my EVO2, and it is easily stripped if it happens to be very tight. You would have problems removing it.

I haven't had a single problem with mine. No of them are rounded out or stripped.
