Josh-Q. on your Xray. I saw a lot of what Team Xray was doing at Birds-but would like to know if changing the ackermann wth the carpet shock tower modification was done to calm down the steering? I tried the short arm car in practice at birds and it steered so fast I actually changed my entire driving style to keep from turning in early. Just curious if that mad steering was a product of not extending the steering arms-or if I missed something else in the set-up. I tried running Alex Lopez's set-up-except the ackermann.

Thanks,
Ray

Ray, I'm not Josh, but I think when you have more ackerman (like the NTC3 rack gives on our car vs. the stock rack) it calms the steering down quite a bit.

Josh,

Are the CEFX C12ss and C10ss going to be produced or just a one time deal?

Josh

When using the short arms and mounting the rear shocks on the outside hole on the arm, besides having to remove material off the arm how do you keep the wheel from rubbing on the shock eyelet?

Running 28mm foams.

Thanks,

trackdesigner71 - For what car??

sands - You car is extremely stiff!! I've never even tried the car like that!! Especially on the shock oil!! I run Asc 30wt in the rear and Asc 50wt in the front with the standard pistions (4 holes)!! Usually, softer set-ups are easier to drive and are more consitant. You have to remember - it is a TC and not a pan car - it is going to have some body roll.

doug - I currently use my CEFX 1/12 body, I run a Protoform Alpha on my TC, Delta Lola on my 1/8... Any classes you want to know other than those?

futureal - Yep.. still kickin!!

stefan - Thanks for the kind words and support on mytsn!! Also, thanks for the new contact!! I'm curious to do a bit of testing!!

429racer - Use lighter front shock oil, shorter front camber link.

Ray - The ackerman mod was to give more highspeed steering. It actually gives the car less ackerman.

TRL - I ran the exact same set-up from the Novak Race in Wisconsin. I still choose double pinks... I had bad luck in qualifying but if you take the several crashes with traffic out of my qualifier then I would have been 2nd or 3rd qualifier... I thought my car was extremely good... The CEFX car is delayed do to a few issues but I am doing all I can to get it out asap!!

Brian - Those were prototypes. I have a really good baseline now as to what I'm going to do to those cars to make production kits in the future... Those will come more towards the end of the summer (I think)...

peter - Just go to www.cefx.net and use the contact page. Write your question there and I will get it and reply.

CRASH - Are you running long wheel base? Did you grind off enough material?? We cut probably .125 off the a-arm....

nnick - The 1/12 body is already out as well as the body mask kits. We have a bunch of new products comming in the next 1-2 months so keep an eye out on our site - www.cefx.net

Josh,

I am running the long wheel base. Sounds like I need to dremel off some more material. Do I need to redrill and tap the hole for the shock mount. It is awfully shallow after removing the material.

Thanks,
