Default CEFX Carpet Upgrade Kit for Corally PHI

When the PHI hit the US last year before the Snowbirds, I made a 3mm chassis for the PHI that only the modified team drivers used through the IIC. From there, I did a lot more testing with Mike Blackstock and I made many updates to the chassis, shock towers and a steering bellcrank extension. From there, I think the results have spoken for themselves with several race wins coming from the updated/stiffer components.

I considered working with Corally USA on these for some time but at this point I have decided to move forward and make these upgrades immediatly available from CEFX directly.

I am cutting Corally chassis, Front Shock Tower, Rear Shock Tower and Steering Extension today and tommorow. I will fill orders on a first come/first serve basis and I do have a limited amount of carbon in stock as I am waiting for my next batch. Here's the prices:

Chassis - $80.00
Front Tower - $18.00
Rear Tower - $20.00
Steering Extension - $5.00
PHI Upgrade Kit (Includes everything above) - $115.00

Please e-mail me at [email protected] to place and order. Soon, the individual parts and complete kit will be up on www.cefxraceway.net.

EA - You know... I fired up my etcha-sketch and dremel.... Walla... PHI stuff......lol...

Wallstreet - I'm not 100% but I know Blackstock, Dayger, Dumas, Johnson and Trandell had chassis (not sure if anyone else did). I think Blackstock ran the front and rear towers... Dumas might have but don't quote me on it...

My future for TC is up in the air right now. My Kyosho/Orion contract has expired and I am trying to sort out some details to find myself a new home. With the holiday and Novak Race it has really slowed progress so hopefully I can sort it all out soon. I may still be independant for the Birds as it's just getting to close to try and prepare with a new car for such a big event.

The purple?? It's Parma faskolor but otherwise I'm not sure. James Reilly paints my bodies so he would know better than I would.

Josh,

With those shock towers, how do those camber link locations correspond to the stock towers?

for Josh's bodies. Hope that helps.

It's the same machine that has been producing the CEFX line of 12th scales and Oval cars ( results speaking for themselves = wicked fast ).
