Anyone have input on this problem?
Put on two TC Pulley Post Mount...it is the

spur gear holder..the will hold the spur from moving or flex....

Default CEFX VS PHOTON LIPO

Seeing as the photon LIPO chassis appears to be a 'rip off' the cefx, has anyone compared a Photon Lipo against a CEFX

if so what are your findings?

Yes I have....I like the look and design of the cexf chassis..but the cefx chassis setup is very narrow window compare the PHOTON stiff lipo chassis...

I emailed them at [email protected] and have not yet gotten a reply.

I have ordered online with no problems. I made an order last Monday. Got it Friday. I think the website needs updated as it says webstore says parts will say 0 availibilty. When I add to cart, it works fine.

I do agree that the CEFX customer service could be a little better. Without James Reilly I would have never seen a set up sheet for Evo.

Josh- Do you visit this thread anymore?

Did you order from the new site or old one?
I can't order or register on to the new site cause I am from overseas. The new site "cefxspeedshop.com" only allows US residence to register an account.

We have also taken to simply putting the car over your knee and tweeking it back, with your knee roughly near the motor. ( I don't like this method, it has been successful ).

Best regards,
James"

We have four guys at the local track running the car and these things have taken care of 95% of the problem, hope that helps.
Mr. sprintcarracer
There is no one "fix" for this as no one has been able to determine the exact cause of it, however above are a few simple things that we do to keep everything flat. I hope that helps.

James
