Any talk of a new car for 2013 that could be similar in size to the new Xray T4?

That is an prob an unknown
but we can guess the next release would include the bulkhead modification for the new suspension holders.
The car is pretty good in current state.

Wish they would change the servo position to sideways need the room electronics.
other than that I am pretty darn happy with my CXL.

They ran lowered shock towers and 1mm shorter shock shafts at the worlds. I wonder if we'll see those parts soon?

Why you didn't mod your bulkheads?
you will gain more steering if you mod. If I remember there is another screw close the servo (last one on the bulkhead).

No, the last screw on the front bulkhead is the one under the pivot block. The Mi4LP had only the screws under the pivot block mounts. The CX added one somewhere in between.

Marcos, I thought you were running a CXL? Those pictures are a CX, and you're not running the alloy blocks for lowering the roll center to CXL location...

Only my second year with the schui, same car both years (CX). Getting a rebuild this off season, and ready to run its 3rd season.

Certainly one of the best cars I have ever driven.

When I heard about the T4 i put off getting the CXL to see how the other manufactures respond to it.
