I was interested in seeing if the, as advertised, more offroad oriented S-MX model could be made to work for our airheads, but as it turns out, it is not only NOT feasible, but is unnecessary. Ted Porter
got back to me after a visit to the factory (lucky). He informed me that the body will not fit (although I wouldn't mind modifying the subframe to make it if it was worth it) and that the F-RS model has the exact same internal parts. Personally, I just found out that we're having a kid, so I have no money for squat right now
, but I'd really like to see someone check this out, give Ted a bit of business, perhaps even a group buy, and report about their performance (get yourself a decent driveshaft while you're at it
). If you are in Europe, FTR suspension
was offering a damn good group buy with only 5 orders!
