So with the 3.5mm above, thatís giving you more droop I bet.
I put the 1.5mm ride height spacers in and Iím still pretty high. I ordered more but was thinking of doing this same thing. Should also help with more steering.

Yes, I had a bit of droop but took it out this weekend as I was racing on black CRC carpet. I put another .5mm shim in on the top and had little to no droop. I took the TQ and win at the local 3 day event (http://www.rctech.net/forum/canadian...r-3-4-5-a.html) that we had this weekend. We only had 5 F1 drivers but the field consisted of some very talented drivers.

I heard there will be a new car before Christmas.

Has anyone seen or know of any more details.

I haven't heard anything but I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with. The FXM is a wicked fast car. I took another TQ and win this past weekend at the Kelowna leg of the WCICS series. Results are http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...h-26th-aaa.pdf .

Running 2 year old CRC tires and first gen Motiv.

By the way, has anyone tried the Volante tires on this car? I have tried them but they don't seem to work very well for me on black carpet. The car either traction rolls or spins out. If I over sauce the rears (if I leave the sauce on more than 5 minutes), they get really soft and end up acting like lint rollers and picking up the carpet fibers and then my car just spins out. I guess I have to experiment with them to see if I can get them to work. They look great on my car and I don't have to mess with the ride height.

A couple months ago I heard the new car was due by December, but still haven't seen anything. Hoping to see details soon. Anyone have some pre-release spy shots? Quite pleased with my VBC D09 so I'm interested to try their F1. I like the look of the FXM but have been holding out until I see the new chassis.
