Chris (aka: Windsorguy99) is getting faster every time he gets on the track with his FK05. I'm in the process of converting my T1 (Windsorguy99's old car) to an FK05, looking forward to some racing with it.

Yes, with my FK05, I have been setting new track records each weekend (fastest single lap, and best 5 minute run).

Shaved almost a full second of fmy best lap times...just gotta concentrate and string em together better and i'll be right up there....

the car was giving me a competitive advantage....

A year ago I was the only Xray in the area.......now there are over 10 running regularly at our local trackI guess people figure that if it can make me fast it'll do wonders for them

I have been adjusting it...of course. Although, I am pretty close, mainly just fine adjustments each weekend for track conditions. This past weekend I went with a Losi Alpha in 19turn, and it seemed to calm the car down from the Mazda (which it should). I am still working on gaining more traction overall.

Been drivin' an '05 since it hit the states. Go a few pages back and there are some pictures of it posted. I think page 62 or 63 or something like that.

Looks nice. let us know how long it looks good for. I've never really thought about doing it. My problem would be considering how long it lasts and how long it would look good after running it a few weekends.
