For instance ther was a BIG "blurr" under the steel motor mount. The guy works as a watchmaker so for him that's no biggie but still , that was a bit disapointing. I am in the process of writing a short review of the build with the pics he took while building, so check www.overrc.com regularly ! it should be ready at the end of the week. The whole site is in French but it's quite easy to translate.
It amazes me to see the nit-picky ones cry about burrs or oh the chassis or this piece wasn't perfect. Josh is a one man show with a few that volunteer to lend a hand if that. Hey doesn't have a enormous manufacturing plant in his backyard with 1000 employees. So give the man a break .

Also the holes are slightly different then the stock ones, and the inner ( longest ) position is longer then the option TOP camber plates, so really a tuning option on all photon based cars.

Tested the CEFX Evo and i must say it's amazing. Been always searching for grip for our close tires Solaris at our local races now i found it. Believe it or not Solaris is performing like Sorex tires now. Brought down 1sec per lap consistantly. COooollll.

I hope to see him tomorrow. It always interests me to see what the fastest guys are running, what their setup is and what equipment they are running. I love the spec tire thing, I really think that levels the field (No Plugged Bats...lol).
I wonder if anyone else is running an EVO out there.

Jackson R/C 17.5 A-Main
Qual 3rd
Fin 7th

Failed with some help The car was strong in the main. Probably needed to free up the car a bit. More concerned about the bite changing for the main as we rolled into the night just after the nitro heat ran for 20 min. Wasnt sure what type of a track we were going to have so I softened up the car.

I was happy for week 2 with the Evo. Better results soon. Post setup info later.

Congrats to Josh at the Reedy he didn't win but you could visually tell the car was getting better while we had video.

I wasn't trying to insult anyone. More than half a millimeter on a machined part has nothing to do with the size of the company. I am just informing. That implies giving facts. Sorry. And this thread is the place to give facts about this car, other than "wow I love the car in the picture, it rocks!" etc.

I think M. Cyrul is delighted to hear the opinion of people who actually saw the build in person, just like any other customer. The car is very, very cleverly designed, I am just stating that on that one kit, there was small defects on manufacturing. This is a high end TC or what? The manufacturing is expected to match the performance, IMO. So while it is NOT a big obstacle to the assembly, especially considering this car is aimed at skilled racers, it has to be mentionned to give objective information. Period . Just sit back, relax and let M. Cyrul handle this if he wants to.

Back on topic, my friend entered his first race with the car and I think he's happy with it. He just tried to get a feeling before changing too many things.

The 2 screws that hold the graphite part holding the spur gear assembly both got loose and caused him to ruin a spur gear. I think since they screw in steel they deserved a dab of threadlock and a generous tightening. Since that he didn't have any other problem.

I tried the car at the end of the day and liked it. I did not fell in love with it like I did when I tried his previous car (xray) but the feeling was good and it took me just a few laps to be able to drive it clean.
