MST FS-01D Front Motor Chassis Kit

Max Speed Technology has officially announced the silver FS-01D front motor chassis for release on February 22, 2012. The special pre-order period is over and now you can purchase from your local retailer. This chassis is one of the first full front motor chassis kit to hit the market. An entire line-up of silver option parts will also be available for this chassis. Check out the full post for more details.

The new MST FS-01D front motor chassis will now feature silver carbon graphite. The new silver surface carbon material provides desirable flex characteristics and styling. This chassis will be in high demand, so pre-orders are recommended if you want one.

The FS-01D now offers the user more options when it comes to mechanical chassis traction. Several additional silver carbon components are integrated for chassis rigidity adjustment. The new FS-01D silver chassis has been designed with high traction in mind. Manufactured to approximately 2.0mm with several cut-outs to promote greater flex characteristics. The most noticeable being the side wings and the W shaped piece in front of the rear tensioner. These pieces can be adjusted by screws to create more or less chassis flex. Which is a benefit for the more technical RC Drifters out there.

The new FS-01D Silver Chassis features 2 distinct battery positions.

  • Front motor chassis

      1. Does anyone know where spares for this kit is available, i really love the thing, i want to order one but there is no point if i cant get spares like cvds and belts.

        1. this is easy, lots of optional part for this  from MST originally is available
          But I only know the webshop in china. I think you can buy it somewhere else also since there exit those product

        2. You can fill out the form above, it will put you indirect contact with MST, so they will be able to fulfill your spare parts needs.  There is also a 3rd party ebay store that sells MST parts.  MST distributors are starting to come into the market.  If you email MST, they can better direct you!

      2. I would like to order one, but filled up the table and did not get any foretime message from the seller. 

        1. Note: The week of January 23, 2012 – January 29, 2012 is the Lunar New
          Year. MST is based out of Taiwan so they are on vacation for that period
          for Chinese New Year celebrations. Thank you for understanding

      3. i did the same thing, messaged to order 2 of them, but no reply, now that i know that there is a holiday on, ill wait longer before messaging them again 😀

        1. Is there only me that MST technology is responding for any emails so slow? I sended them questions about spare parts, and upgrades (like one way unit or CS) and no respond from them for few days…
          Anybody has same story as I do?
          Thanks

            1.  I know it is not included in set, was asking about price and/or is it at all available for this model. I was sending email directly to mst, they responded me twice (just after theirs new years brake)…
              Dunno what to think about it?! If they are not responding to question asked, or responding with so big delay, what is gonna be in future?

              1. Well I cannot speak for MST, but personally have never had a problem getting a response form them.  Sometimes it does take a few days, but they always respond.  The only time they did not was because the email was sorted into the “Junk Mail” folder, not sure why, but it has happened in the past.

              2. Finnaly they responded to may emails, I am quoting: “We are arranging some FS-01D option photos and quotation which could be
                available along with FS-01D in this month.
                Please give us one more day, some items will be confirmed tomorrow.”So tommorow, 9th of feb they gonna publish some info about spare/upgrades to this model.DriftMission thanks for interest on this matter, good to know that somebody is reading this 🙂

      4. They couldn’t give me straight answer re: max parralell steering angle out of the box, or when adding the aluminum steering link. No thanks.

        1. Probably because it is dependent on whether you remove the steering limiter.  As the manufacturer, they would not recommend removing safe-guards from the chassis.  But as the end-user, you have the option of removing them and gaining more steering angle.

      5. Or I do not understand something or have some kind of problem. They said to me, asked for the recipient’s address, I sent and sent my paypal account a week ago, but has not received any response.

      6. Big Q:- is this pre-order for all International buyers or just selected countries for which there is no MST agent?
         
        Just received msg from MST telling me to order from “local distributor” instead 
        via a online webstore which, thankyou very much, does not yet exist.
         
        Thus hard to check whether USD$420 promo pricing will be honoured nor arrival timeframe;
        given past experiences with adding middlemen into the chain – i won’t hold my breath.

        1. PandaGFX,
          To our understanding, this pre-order is for buyers from any country which does not have an Official MST dealer.  We are under the impression that MST would forward these inquiries to their respective local authorized dealers.
          Yes we understand your concern about adding middle-men to the transaction, but authorized MST dealers would be better able to answer your questions and provide you after purchase support.  This promo is an official offer directly from MST, so if you ordered this before February 15 then they should honor the promo price.
