Ron - Nope, coming to play with you guys at Motorama!! I need LOTS of practice!! Heading out to the track in 1:45 minutes... Doing my morning e-mail, RedRC, Neo, RCTech, HobbyTalk and e-mail again. Then I get to go work on my Agama until 11am, then it's off to the track. I figure I can get at least 5 more days of 1/8 practice in before the race and I might try to run some electric 2wd and 4wd just for extra "dirt" time before the race...lol...

Smyka - Driving, leaving Thursday early afternoon sometime. I have no clue about the race and that I'm aware, Jamie Grayek is the other Agama driver attending the race but I've never meet or spoken with him. Like I said, I don't really have plans (or a clue) but I'll be there!! I don't have your # so you'll have to e-mail it to me.

Sounds like you'll be ready for a new motor by Friday. I won't be Racing at Motorama but I'll make my way out Sunday to check out the action.

Jamie's a great guy. He's one of Schreff's friends. So watch out.

Is this Cefx sold as a kit or conversion? I would like to buy one but cannot find it anywhere online? Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

I also found that the chassis could be bent slightly upwards in this area(with motor mounts removed) and how can i check if i have the new mounts i have are up to your standards?
Hi,
I'm im the driver of the above car just wanted to let interested people know what was the conlusion of our bent chassis issue.We went out testing this morning at our local track and the car had a brand new chassis ,motor mount and stiffener on.The car was setup with a perfectly straight chassis and all screws were tight.The chassis had a slight bend in it after running the first 3 battery packs and this was straightened again(knee tweaked straight).At this stage the car had only had some slight clips on the corner barriers on angled concrete and not very hard hits.On the 4th battery my dad had a go and softly side hit the track barriers and ran it over a 2 inch poly pipe barrier slowly(not hard).We then checked the chassis after these 3 hits and the chassis was banana shaped and bent around the engine mount area(same as previous chassis).Now after this experience my dad is now very very very pissed off and disapointed as our new TOP Photon has been smashed into the end of a piece of 4 by 2 wood barrier and hasnt been bent(VERY HARD HIT).So knowing that where onto a good thing with the TOP Photon my dad has now ordered a new TOP lipo chassis conversion kit for this car and the CEFX chassis will be collecting dust with our other obsolete car bits.

McbainRC - I am sorry to hear your displeasure with the car. I am curious about when/where you purchased it from (if from the CEFX site, order # please). I myself have run the Evo quite a bit and have never had the issue as others have stated. Yes, I do hit stuff but without this problem (yes, running the same production parts as everyone else). Again I find it extremely hard to believe all these "soft" hits are creating such a problem. I'm also quite disapointed NO ONE e-mails me at CEFX about these problems as still to date, I do not have a "banana" chassis or motor plate combination here to try and sort out the problem. I know the problem is not the chassis if you had the problem with the other chassis as well. It must be a bad motor plate or something else.

I just thought of a possible something else..... Has anyone looked at the graphite center shaft mounts?? Please make sure to check as some of these came off the machine slightly over size so if you put them on the motor plate (or mount plate as some double up), make sure these don't hang below the motor plate. If they do, it could definatly cause a bowing issue.

KingKarate - You posted that your car has no bow so what good would that do me?? I'm looking to find mount/motor plates that are indeed bent or something I can find to be the source of the problem. I have two straight Evo cars here that don't have this problem and really I don't need a third.
