Khador12 - Yes, exactly the same.

For those of you looking for your orders, I'm really sorry but I've been really sick the past week +. Those who have talked to me on the phone can verify... This weekend, I am doing what I can (naps included) to work on everything and get it all out the door. More Xray chassis and top decks are cut, Griffin 12 parts cutting now and our Xanthos oval parts being cut tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully, we will have a huge pile of boxes heading out of here Monday and Tuesday so we can be caught up and I have time to rest a little before the IIC Warm-Up next weekend.

I'll update everyone here probably Sunday night or Monday morning.
Thanks for the heads up Josh. Dont forget that oval front end when you send my Griffin 12th conversion

Thank you

Jamison - I haven't forgot!!

Infinite - CAD conversion pics on the CEFX site. If you are looking for built pics of the new production car, I don't have any yet - Just my car from last year.

Andy - Classic!!

Today was a good cutting day. All the Xray stuff is caught up and Griffin 12 is mostly done. I did have the pleasure of a coughing fit to where I blacked out and ended up on the floor (a first) but hopefully everyone will enjoy their parts!!

Andy, with that attitude I may have to start driving up to your local track instead of using cellular communications.

Josh, should I prepay for a kit so I'll have one reserved when you are ready to ship?

Jamison - I'm off to work now but I am working on your front end tonight or tomorrow morning (#1 on my list) then it's going in the box with your 1/12 stuff and on the way to you.

ToysRUsKid - I have to sort out the pricing first. I should be able to get to that early next week being that I finally am getting caught up.

Finished cutting a bunch of 1/12 stuff for orders today and made a ton of delrin parts for our 1/10 oval cars. I have 1 more day of heavy CNC work on Xanthos oval car parts and then I should be even up with all our current orders. From there, I'm going to get everything ready for the IIC Warm-Up this weekend at The Gate.

All Griffin 12 orders will be out of here by tomorrow, all Xray parts orders are already out of here and Xanthos has been shipping with more finishing up Wednesday and Thursday.... Finally getting caught back up!!

Figured I'd ask the question here before sending Andy a couple hundred text...

Which body do you run for 12th scale and which battery do you think fit better the deans or bullet batteries?

Our very first injection molded parts are in!!! Unfortunetly a day late for testing at the IIC Warm-Up last week but that's ok. These were the very first test shots and already the molds are being worked on to polish some areas up and put the final finish on them. We are also making a small adjustment to the rear rim but otherwise they should be pretty set to go. Another batch of test shots is shipping tomorrow so we will have a limited supply for the IIC as the first shots are good enough to race.

The bearing fit is tight in the front rims also right now which may be adjusted or we will actually ream the rims here when they arrive. I think a lot of us are tired of taping our front rims to keep the bearings in and then watching them wobble. I specified how I wanted the injection points and these rims are super true!! I haven't had a set of tires bolt onto my car this straight in a very long time so I'm excited to hit the track and test them. I may be out to MSI after work on Wednesday to give them a try or it will be this weekend.

One more project almost here and in production!!
