I'll be testing out Jasons setup above only with a flat servo, and the stock flex plates in the long position without screws. I have thin plates on their way but not sure if they will be here before Sunday. I have the LiPo and booster all installed and ready to go.

I am also going to be testing some differnet foams for tires. I may try the Lilac and Yellow I was running for 4 cell at first. I have some CRC Grey-Lo's I want to try on the rear.

Here's an interesting body I found on ebay. Mounts a bit higher then I want due to the pod but still looks great I think

Probably just a backfill of the CEFX body. Looks just like it.

Hey Inspector I bought two of those bodies also, it has a cool cam-am look to it, just need to paint them up now. Have'nt tried to fit it on the car yet, you say its a tight fit over the top of the rear pod?

Chris

I have tried that body on my 12L4. It made the car push into a turn and had great straightaway speed. When I drove the car into the wind it pushed, and when I drove it with the wind it was a bullet.

Yeah just a bit. The bottom cut will need to be almost where the mold flattens out.

Similar but not the same. The CEFX body I see on the site has the rear wing molded on...this one is bolted on. Also you'll notice on the CEFX also has vents over the front wheels where this one does not. There are some similarities but I imagine if you put them side by side they would look totally different.
