Default Any new CEFX news???

Hi all, does anyone know of any new CEFX news? Nothing seems to get updated on their own website so maybe someone could give me some info on here? I am aware of the new chassis with holes for the Associated front end but did anything ever get released with regards to the Trinity type front end or was that for team drivers only? Any news, that would be great.

All the best,

Chris.

I'm pretty sure they were using the Trinity front end to test out different geometries on account of the adjustability. From what I heard, which may be the last you heard, the Assoc. front end was going to be the choice.

We are releasing 3 new chassis to allow people to use the Asc front end. They come in 3 different widths at the front. Standard = Asc, Medium = .050 wider, Wide = .100 wider. This should give our users a full line of options.... I'll update more after the WC!!!

Thanks for the reply. Will you be offering a chassis with the trinity style front end on? Thanks also to your wife who sent me a good reply to my home e-mail. Good luck in Italy!

Hey Mark,

The Nats was a joke.....

The Oval chassis are coming allong. I cut the graphite the other day for the prototype/preproduction 1/10 car - That will be tested for sure this weekend. Hopefully, we'll be cutting the proto/preproduction 1/12 oval car this week so we can run it either this weekend or next. Hopefully we'll have both cars out in November-December!!

Also, we are making the new 1/12 kits that include the new Evo2 Medium chassis with an AE front end. The Evo2 Medium chassis is now avaliable and we should have the Evo2 Standard and Wide Chassis in stock by the end of the week.

Also, we will have new front end braces to match the new chassis very soon.

Add into that we now have a Tamiya 415 MSX and Marc R. Edition Top decks avaliable. Before I left for the 1/8 Nats, I finished up a new HB Cyclone Carpet Top Deck and Rear Deck. They turned out really good and are quite stiffer than anything else out there!!

More new stuff coming soon.... I just have to finish it all up!!

Josh, what time do sign ups end for the race this weekend? I am going to stop and race on my way to Auburn Hills for a week of work. What tires for TC are the norm?

Thanks,
Kevin

DodgeGuy: TC Tires Parma Cyan front, Magenta Rear
Jaco Dbl Pink/ Org Front, Dbl Pink Rear

Ramyuras: the different width chassis change how hard your car steers,
It's one of those things that you only get from CEFX

Hope that helps, Josh can explain further when he gets a chance.

xtrememadness - We are working on getting all the new graphite products up on the web site. I've just got back from the 1/8 Nats so I am trying to catch up and get Angel all the part #'s, pricing info and pictures so she can get them up on the site - www.cefxraceway.net

ram - The standard chassis is the same front width as the Asc. The medium is .050 wider and the wide is .100 wider. Generally, we run the standard for asphalt and modified carpet low grip. We use the medium for higher grip tracks in all classes. The wide chassis we use for stock and maybe 19t at the really high bite races (IIC last year, Snowbirds, Nats).

dodgeguy - Saturday is oval this weekend, Sunday is road course. Sunday, doors open at 9am with racing starting at noon. This weekend is our "Bon Voyage to Summer" race. We'll have goodies for everyone who comes in the door including lunch!!
