KMW - The extensions give us less ackerman - more highspeed steering along with the slight decrease in steering sensitivity around center = a less twitchy car with more steering in sweepers and carousel....

lazyboy - I was there the past few years and I definatly am planning on attending this year also!!!

Hugo - 12t?? I haven't run that in years...lol.... Umm... Purple springs (maybe red), loads of timing - 16-24 degrees, brushes... not sure - what type of motor?? yokomo or epic (small brush, laydown, or big brushes)??

Josh, did you get my email?

Oh and thanks for sharing that info on the ackerman positions. Now it makes sense why the inner holes work really well at my home track (lots of 180's usually).

You ran a 7X2 at the reedy race!? You got crazy horse power.... (No comment from you Mr. Kropy)

Jackson's track is hard-packed, so I'm sure Josh's CEFX 12 would have no problems ripping it up. I can just picture it on the triple now, getting the front wheels all crossed up.

I think seeing a CEFX 12 on an off-road track should make it into the next XXX Main video. We could make some custom taper pins for the rear too. She'd be DIALED!!!!!!

josh - i have been running my FK for a couple of weeks now and i'm quite happy with the car. i ran the set-up recommended by the manual and found the car to have a loose rear end which makes the car spin out on some areas. then i D-LOADED your set-up for the reedy race and the car was really hooked up. it was so hooked up that everyone who drove/watched the car running was very impressed. KUDOS to you!!!

- i noticed that you use the zero deg aluminum caster on your recent set-ups. i'm wondering what added characteristics in handling did you get out of it?

Brian - E-mail?? I don't think so....

Scott - Yep..

Aaron - Let me know when you are going to try that...lol... I'll send a pack of bumpers and front end parts your way!!!

striker - When we ran at the Pre-Worlds and Reedy Race it seemed to help with highspeed steering which was what we really need with the Xray. It also helped keep a good balance on the tires through 5 minutes.... I would have never tried it but Juraj Hudy tried it at the Pre-Worlds and we all gave it a try and liked it.

Randy - Thanks and no...lol.. Same schedule as last year (at least for the first year)... and it's still supposed to be a secrect for a few more weeks!!...lol...

Joe - [email protected] or you can hit www.cefx.net and go to the contact page...

Josh,
You wrote about the "1/11th" scale associated car you ran at the pro ten worlds. What did that car look like?
I'm in the process of drawing out a new bottom plate for my Associated RC10L2-mutant car. I'm considering shortening the car to give it more steering, without sacrificing rear traction. At the moment, I run a 2.2mm thick T-bar to balance the front and rear of the car. The stock T-bar is 2mm. This does help give the car more steering, but it sacifices out-of-the-corner stability. I also narrowed the front of the car with 5mm, and the rear with 2mm, compared to stock. Any suggestions?
I also added a picture of my car. The only change I made since then, was to switch the side shocks for tubes, and add the thicker T-bar with tweak screws.
