on a good surfaced track, FGX is just too heavy and complex to fight against pan cars.
yes mckune FGX did got 2nd in carpet national. But if you read the setup, the rear is pretty much hard like a pan car. (super stiff spring + super stiff damping + spacer under ball stud to increase spring/damper stiffness).

It's the slightly flawed bumpy tracks that give FGX the advantage. Pan car can't drive on a parking lot track.

I like the FGX for it's design, I like to play with it once a while, maybe even race it once a while. not really looking for a win with it though.


If you want a F1 to win race at the first place, just get a pan car. easier, faster (on good track), and actually cheaper.

Default front upper arm dimensions

Guys

can someone tell me the dimensions for the front upper arm:
X - from front inner ball to the knuckle pin ball

I want to try some different turnbuckles and ball ends
But I haven't ordered my FGX yet )

Thanks!

Does anyone know if the Rabbit chassis conversion is still available for the FGX, and if so, where would one purchase it from?

I can't find it on their site. I don't think they sell it, in fact, I don't think it exists anymore; I tried sending an email to the manufacturer, and no response so far.

Too bad

Thank you, but unfortunately that's the HKS chassis which is too wide near the front for any Tamiya or other F1 bodies. I don't know why they made it so wide near the front like that?!

That's why I liked the Rabbit conversion, as it was narrower at the front and had the same wheelbase as the F104, thus accommodating a wide variety of F1 bodies. But I don't think it's made anymore, unfortunately.

I am using the F104 stepped nose body which is available in ebay. It fits well. I really like to share a photo but it is not yet done. Cheers.
