Default 3Racing FGX

Initially I didn't have much interest in the FGX because of the issues people were having with them. But now with over 5 aftermarket chassis, the version 2 arms shipping with the kits, and a bunch of 3Racing hop-ups being available for the car I think it is time to give it a second look. So I'm just putting a feeler out there to see if there is any interest in the car if I bring some in.

What kind of price? With all of the "upgrades" needed it can still get pricey ,though that Exotek chassis looks nice!

Ok here is the cost of the FGX and a list of replacement and aftermarket parts I figured the average FGX owner might be interested in. The "Web Pricing" is the full retail price and the "Retail Price" is the discounted retail price that I am allowed to charge by contract.

Cool...I will talk with whoever is interested at the track on Sunday and place the order sometime next week.

For those still wanting BMI stuff...Jason has still mostly been at the hospital as his new born is still needing extra care. I will order as soon as possible.

I have a roller....... not much else done yet but was an interesting build. RIde medium tires might do the trick but remains to be seen.

Burt, Im gonna need one of those metal camber plates, the stock one is plastic...... might need the rack steering set up also.

I haven't even started my build yet...hopefully Saturday I'll be putting some time into it. Do you want the 1* mount? Last order the steering rack was out of stock...hopefully it will be in stock for the next order. Those Exotek lower arm braces look interesting...might have to pick me up a set. How was the diff? I keep reading a few ppl having issues building it.

Yea the 1 degree will work, the diff is like any other gear diff just gotta lightly sand the back of the gears and make sure you use the right amount of shims and DON"T overtighten the screws on the case. it will bind up the diff if ya do. If you order those arm braces I'll take a set.
