Josh,

Remember that ROAR rules say that the body has to have been a car in a real touring car series and can be 2 doors. Remember the NSX is raced in the Japanese Touring Car Championship. hehehe

Or Josh if you would rather go with an American built car the Mosler is a good choice.

The CEFX Lmp body just proves how important aerodynamics really is in RC cars-espcially 12th scale. Remember a few years ago when Parma's speed 8 came out right before the Champs? Almost everyone went faster with one. JOsh was one of the first to give praise to that body. I thnk PF had the P35 for a decade before that..lol Now Josh's body looks to be creating the same buzzz!!! I cannot wait to see them tomorrow at our track. I am sure some people are already testing and running them.


Josh-You should bring a bunch and see if Jim and Aaron can sell them at track for you. I am sure they will be happy to.

Ray

OVA.. I believe Kraig from KT Hobbies will have them in stock soon. Check out their website, which is on his signature a few posts up.

Brian.. Josh already has something up his sleeve..

Josh do you have a pic or does someone else havea pic that shows the way you mounted the Losi rear shock tower on your car? Can't wait to get a hold of your new body.

OVA - We don't have a web site as of yet. Hopefully we can get that up and running after Cleveland...

Matt - You will have to raise or lower the ball studs that mount to the steering blocks. Once you start to look at it and mess with raising and lowering them you will see what I mean....

Aaron - The TC body will be worked on after Cleveland. There just isn't enough time to finish it now especially with all the work that's gone into the CEFX 12...

Crash - Now I use the Hudy set-up guages. Before I just used the TC3 tool that came with the kit to set droop...

Brian - I know those bodies wouldn't be legal. Go back and look at the rules listings now and you will see what bodies can and can't be made legal.... I don't have a pic of my TC3 tower. Ask your brother - he has seen it a bunch....

Ray - I can't find a way to get them down there this weekend. I will try but I don't know if anyone from my area is heading down there. I won't be there till late Sunday night....

Default Shock pump

Josh,

What is the name of that shock pump you let CD use at the Halloween race? All I can say is "MONEY"......

Thanks bro.

LMFAO @ shock pump...

Endler brought some of those in to the LHS....I think he thought they were some sort of penis-pump

I'm assuming that you're referring to the vaccuum pump and shock holder to help remove air bubbles from your shocks as you build them....

I'll post the manufacturer tomorrow afternoon when I get back from the shop if Josh hasn't already updated it.

I think it was Xtreme that did a review on it a couple of months ago...they seemed to like it..the theory behind it is sound.

You can do the same thing without the pumping by using a vacuum cup, and a venturi type vacuum generator...pass air through the generator with your air compressor and it will generate vacuum...

The vacuum generator and parts required to hook it up should b e readily available at any industrial supply store and air compressors are everywhere
