Default Finally, mooman007's fgbaja vid

here is my fg sunday afternoon drive...all i needed was a flask off tea and some cucumber sandwiches.

I'm running 2 speed, hydro's front and rear, 28.5 oneills reed ported and 813 carb with jetpro. All alloy rear end with new version dps arms and 4 plate diff. front is plastic except the uprights. Standard shocks but got some all alloy fg shocks with alloy pistons to throw in for next time.
It was a bit too stony where I was...better for my rampage...rear brakes didn't like stones so about 1min in it sounds like it's bogging off the line...it had a slightly bent rear disc dragging it down...at the end the other got a rock jambed in it and bent it badly. lost my rear brakes line early on too due to a rock so front brakes only for most of the vid...i drive my rc's like I stole them

Way fun vid!

I'd dare say you trashed your FG alot harder than your RedCat. I'm surprised that only your brakes were ruined (the wing is only superficial fortunataly)

Nice catwalking during the last minute of your vid there.

my rampage needs more speed to trash it properly I got a modded ss pipe and 813 to slap on it for next time so i can see how much air it can get off that jump...as soon as my fg's fixed it's going in a jump off with the ramp.
My baja is well tough now...i'm done with the upgrades finally..it only took $3.5K cdn to get it how I want it...can you say 5b killer

Man, you drive that Baja hard as heck, but let me tell you, that was a great video, ofcourse I never break anything, cause I drive in a straight line. Gotta love the 5th scales!!!!

Since you have your 2speed on it, I do have a question. In he vids, I never heard it shift. On my MT, I have a two speed also, and I cannot tell if it shifts or not.

Is this normal? Do the FG gearsets shicft so seamlessly that you cannot hear the gear shifts? I am watching you vid again and trying to play closer attention right now.

You can hear it shift in some places , it's set to shift as it comes on pipe where the power is and on dirt it's not so noticable...it's got 48/16 and 44/20...on road with the slicks you hear it real good. just trying to find somes discs and will have to slap my slicks on.
i rate the 2speed real high...others don't, why i don't know..do the pin mod and they're faultless

That's a great video!! The FG baja really seems to take the abuse!
