HAs anyone compare the full Cefx car against cefx with top stock shock towers and camber plates?

You are missing the uniform look of having all the same fine weave CEFX carbon fibre and of course you know, good looking cars go faster

Seriously though, I don't think it matters too much in the way of performance. The CEFX rear shock tower is a bit wider than the photon one, so it might make a slight difference in the way downforce is transferred to the chassis.

wait....what are you talking about? Does someone make one? Or do you have a prototype that no one else can get yet? That is the only thing that stopped me from putting a 951 in my car. An aluminum case would be nice.

I know the futaba 9650 doesn't make the torque of the KO, I would like to try the KO when the aluminum case is available

So do you guys think no real benefit to buy shock towers and camber plates ?

The camber plates are a mix between the 2 different ones Top offers, Josh said

The front tower is alittle different, I think theres 2 holes removed from the inside and one added to the outside

Is there a benefit? I don't know, but the carbon fiber looks good

Hopefully the new steering system doesnt require new chassis holes. =)

Josh - Have you done any research into flipping the servo so that the horn turns rotates (left/right) on the chassis rather than in-line with the chassis. This would be similiar to how Tamiya mounts their servo on the car. Wanted to get an idea of what the main difference is between mounting it like it is currently and the "Tamiya" way.

We may see the actual design soon from IIC pictures


There are many spare holes on the chassis I don't think we will need to buy new chassis to use new steering...
Other than feels like all cefx owners very happy thread is so quite

I think Andy Moore is sporting a CEFX ride in 12th scale.

Waiting on Josh to confirm that or can someone at IIC confirm?

I heard that as well on live RC. I also heard that he had been testing the AE car. So I dont know which he used in the heat posted above.
