    Hey team. After seeing how good a whale tail looked online a while back - I have always wanted to make one. I had spare time and an old FM-A chassis.... so put one together. It took a fair bit of working out to get the pivot front rollers working. but I got there.... in theory it is awesome and I am happy with how it turned out.... on track (NZ sped-tech) I think a regular set up would be better! sad but hey. If I had a home track I could keep testing but may just move on.

    running result was a little disappointing.
    My first run with the right wheels on it is below... FM-A WT & FM-A.jpg FM-A WT.01.jpg FM-A WT.jpg
