Exotek FGX Evo EFX2 carbon chassis conversion

Exotek have announced the release of their new and improved 2nd generation performance pro chassis conversion for the 3Racing FGX Evo. The set completely updates the FGX Evo into a track worthy competitor by changing out the electronics layout for optimal weight bias and more importantly drops significant weight from the base car. It gives owners that competitive edge by combining the independent suspension of the FGX with an extra lightweight yet more durable chassis package. Key features include a nearly 100g weight cut versus the stock components, a 10mm shortened wheelbase for increased corner speeds and more on power grip as well as an adjustable forward or back LiPi cradle system with lateral battery mounting accepts standard shorty batteries. It allows adjusting weight bias on the fly as track conditions require. Also included are a heavy duty top plate system that provides better durability and lower centre of gravity over the stock plate. A new F104 style chassis mounted wing allows mounting of more durable and lighter F104/Xray wings. The alloy front IFS mounting plate ensures secure IFS suspension operation and a machined front damper set with a “soft” spring set has much softer yet plush damping compared to the stock units. This greatly improves steering response and the ability to soak up bumps.

Other features include an alloy front sway bar mount, carbon rear camber mount plates, longer rear turnbuckles for greater rear end stability, 2.5mm thick premium carbon fibre chassis and components, and carbon front arm braces with droop screw mounting. This moves the droop screw away from the IFS rocker for easier droop screw adjustment. Instructions are included as are details for installing of optional #54357 F104 steering hubs for better F104 style tire choices. The stock FGX body fits but a lightweight F104/Xray style F1 body is recommended for greater weight savings.
