Hi Josh

I bought some nickel metal hydride rechargeable packs from radio shack they are 2000 mah AA 1.2 volts would it be ok to use these as a reciever pack in my EVOLVA. with 5 cells.If so any tips on building them.And what diameters do you start your tires. and what do you set your droop at could you give me an example of of how you will adjust your droop and when starting with a new tire. One reason I dont under stand changing the droop is say you are starting a 1 hour main you start with a new tire and run it until the tire is to small and then you make a tire change but the droop is never adjusted but the car always seems to handle ok. I usually set my droop at 1 in the front and 5 in the rear with new tires and I would run them until they are too small but I would never re-adjust my droop.I figure that the droop I have set would not change well at least the numbers wont but when the tires are smaller I gain more upward motion right? and have to adjust so it wont have so much travel. I think. can anyone make any sense of this to me. thank you in advance

im another josh that can answer this,

your droop in relation to the the shock collar will not change until you adjust the ride height, so you can run the tires right down to nearly nothing(and until the chassis nearly scrapes), and the affects of the droops settings will not change the handling characteristics, unless the fronts and rears wear differently or the tires wear extremely small.

For those of you that have access to a stika machine to make some vinyl stickers, I have put the CEFX logo into a sticka format and you may also download a huge transparent gif if you have another software program to make stickers. Figured a couple of people could at least use this.

Hi Josh,

I ran Modified with Xray Sunday (long arms-C-hubs) and I found something odd about the steering feel. If on-line and cutting a smooth arc-car was amazingly smooth with excellent rotation. BUT-if I had to turn in later (traffic, blown line) and went with more steering input-car really squared up hard. Have you ever felt that? When it squared up that hard-it really killed the corner speed. My Tc3 never felt that dramatically different from small slip angle to large slip angles.

Default Better late than never


This is a little late in comming.

I just wanted to thank you again for keeping me in the Novak race. I really appreciate you giving me the pair of steering knuckles when I broke one of mine.

Thanks again.

I'm also looking forward to the release of your new 1/12 scale car.

Default CEFX 12

Hi Josh,

the CEFX 12 looks very nice. The design is simple, effective, and elegant. I especially like the front end, since it has a suitable form of damping,and an anti-roll (bar) effect built into it.

But.. ... I prefer 6-cell mod. Is there any chance you'd release a 6-cell chassis for it?

I also noticed the in the chassis, you seem to have 2 holes to mount the rear T-plate pivot ball in. I know the 4 small holes are to be able to adjust the tightness of the pivot ball, but .. ... wouldn't you need a different T-bar then?

elvo - I've had enough questions about a 6-cell chassis. I believe that I will have to make some but that won't be for a few months. I have a question - will you be racing on carpet or asphalt?? CEFX is making a different t-bar that uses the other hole. A standard Asc t-bar will fit the car as well as the CEFX t-bar...

Nanook - No problem!!!

Ray - How much steering lock are you running?? You may just have too much steering into it so it get's to a point and then snaps the car ....

whynot - dontfeelcold is corret. Only if you adjust your ride height to compensate for the smaller tires do you then have to adjust the droop. Remember - 1mm tire wear = .5mm droop. I set my car up for qualifying based off tire size and 4-5mm ride height. For the final I will set my car up according to having 3mm ride height with my best guess of what tire size I will finish at. Then I put on the tires to start the race giving me (usually) 5-9mm ride height depending on the tire wear at the track. Those AA's should work fine. I like to shoe-glue the cells together and glue over the solder joints - this helps them from breaking...

SpeediePHATT & TRF414WCR - Price, I'm working on and kits for sale - I won't. We are still waiting on items to arrive. I will only have enough sample parts for few team drivers. The car should be out in late February...

Kevin - Will do!!!

JPHRacer - I will be running our new cars - C12ss and C10ss. I should have

SalvadoriRacing - I prefer to run less belt tension with a wider belt. I've had bad luck running thin belts in the past...

ADDRacer36 - I did run the nitro TC3 steering in my car. In the rear I used a nitro TC3 shock tower with the Losi tower screwed to it...

Hi Josh,

How's it going? We inquired about possibly carrying your companies product prior to the Christmas break, but I have yet to hear back from you. Please give me an email when you get a chance: steve@speedtechrc.com

Thank you Josh
