Default Most realistic F1? F104 vs. FGX suspension


Is the upcoming IFS for the FGX less realistic than the standard?

I was reading this great guide to building the FGX (rcformula1.com.au) and on the first page the following was written:

Sorry I can't post URLs until I have posted a bit more orz
