It`s a shame they still got those leaky ,refill after 2 races shocks, that are a pig to get right

I reckon they should shorten the shocks & lower the towers even more to get the COG right down low, real low

I agree-I was amazed to retrofit the body off my Xray FK to my evoIII with what I thought were really high shock towers-and low and behold-I actually had to trim off the bottom of the body to fit the Tamiya!! That aint right!!!

Why that suprises you? I add from 50 to 70gr extra weight, depending on tire insert combination with my FK

The car is actually very narrow. You will notice it once you get to hold one in your hands.
Corey, look at these pics and then you will understand what we are talking about. Not the car from the Novak race nor Josh's car that won the Champs.

I'm really surprised that they didn't take any ideas from the Losi JRXS. Maybe there wasn't time. Oh well the cost of racing just went up !

Yes it is normal!

I usually have 30gr between servo (right) and esc (left) at the front-center of the car and 2 10s on like the picture. If I use light wheels and/or insert then I add more weight at rear

I have seen team driver's car with weights even more than I have!

Ya I had to add 3-4 ounces of weight to bring my FK up to ROAR weight when it was stock.

Anders Myrberg (Myrberg Senior) isn't lying, he just doesn't tell the whole story.
There was a Myrberg racing the FK. Himself. In stock class...
