Exotek will have them by friday. But I just ordered a CRC gen Xi, hopefully I can still pull this off this week.

Yes, all about moving the weight to the back which is helpful if you run a shorty pack on medium to low grip tracks. Shorty packs seem to be a little more responsive so moving the weight bias back settles it back down.

Any chance I could talk you into making a side shock mount that will fit this pod?

Very cool pod that I would love to be able to use.
Looks very cool but not likely.

In January we will also have a F1 Pro Tire. The rim will be a different size which will increase speed and turning performance. GQ Tires are always perfection and GQ continously looks to manufacture faster tires.

Can find them at Bruckner Hobbies, SpeedWorld or at GQ America.(website listed below)

Happy Holidays to all !
I have F1 Foam arbors that would be quite handy for these

Glad to hear!

Yes! Pit must have done their homework because this tire set works surprisingly well even in the cold.

I took 1st place at last weekends 13th annual Toys 4 Tots race running the 72 hard rears with 74 soft fronts. Car was planted even in 15deg C weather on an outdoor parking lot track

F1R looks awesome! Simple design and lot of settings. Real carbon/alloy jewelery :-)
I would like to buy one direct from exotek but unfortunately not in stock now.
MikeR could you estimate restock date please? Thanks.

the trick is to have so many cars/planes/etc cluttering up your garage she never notices when you add another, unless she checks the bank account

Then you need to get it billed through a 3rd party...that way it won't look like an RC purchase...it will look like a male enhancement purchase...LOL

MikeR,

Will the shock or damping tube that you are using on the F1R for the side to side damping work with a F104X1 until I am able to purchase your conversion?
