I never thought that, I took it to mean that you were lucky, and privy to exclusive info. :)

Yup, he's got the gold key to the crapper!
I must be having a blond moment, this is going over my head. What are you guys referring to?
Sorry, I was just feeling goofy last night and couldn't help but piggyback back on Derek's reference. Yeah, just means you have exclusive privileges. No negative connotations. :mrgreen:

Every time there's an update to this thread, I think about my NIB FXT that needs to be built, and adorned with its Motion Graphics painted body. Between it being so far down the pipeline, and the rate I go at, it'll probably never get done. :roll: If it ever does though, I'd be interested in a bearing kit. I commend you on persuading others to make items available for such an uncommon model.

I just bought one of these on ebay.

Before I buy one, does anybody have a scanned copy of the manual?

The link that Jeff posted on page two is dead.

Thanks. Got it saved.


When you built your FXT, did you happen to copy the shock towers and battery strap? It needs a strap, but I'm not opposed to new towers as well.

:( No, never did copy em. Probably should tho. I have spare towers nib so those would be easy but no extra battery strap. Biggest problem is I’m not sure which of the 30 or so boxes the truck resides in or I could copy the strap also.

No problem.

Its available. If I have to buy one, I'd just assume buy it from you.

Anybody know what pitch the pinion gear is?

Unlike the Blitzer, it looks like this transmission has two different pitch gears, switching at the counter gear.
