motor/drivetrain is rite where the dampers would normally be. low profile solution and still keep the needed stroke ratios. and its proven already.

yup, the position of the IFS is perfect for this layout. Plus, it's better weight distribution. June 26 is too far away

I would say the same as the 416 if it uses the 416 c hubs and outdrives - not sure on driveshaft length - 46mm, 44mm?

I no longer own the 416 but had a big bunch of parts, long/short arms, rear hubs, "c" hubs, front knuckles, out drives and shafts etc etc. Having thought that I have no use of it I almost gave it all away the other day to a buddy. But now after seeing the FF03, looks like all these parts suddenly became useful, VERY!!.

Can't wait to get my hands on one of these and it will be my first FFxx, but had several m-03's and x-evo's. They were all loaded with fun. I can't imagine how much fun the FF03 will bring. Truck loads, maybe?

Possibly boatloads of fun but that's the unknown factor! I can't wait to get one too!
