Default New GFX Charger??

I understand there might be a new version of the GFX charger released to the public sometime in the near future.Is this true??
Word is it MIGHT have a motor dyno feature included. That would be nice.Can someone confirm this?

I know that Integy is releasing a GFX-like charger called the G40 that will have a 'dyno' capabilities, graphing and I believe I read a 40A Discharge....

could this be what you've heard of?

Trying to keep up with the latest version of CE Turbo Charger is like keeping up with the latest X-ray.

There was a guy on the TC4 thread spouting of fabout how the T1 was terrible....I asked for enlightenment but hehas yet to respond....I owned one and terrible is not an adjective that I'd use to describe any part of it...

It'd be like saying the Turbo 35 is terrrible because the GFX was released...some people just don't know

Just imagine a Turbo 40. That would be so cool. All the guys that bought a CDR5000 will be kicking themselves in the butt if CE comes out with it.

The original T1 was not a serious contender on carpet until the upgrade for the C-Hub came out. That is what made it so terrible. Not to mention the parts availability at that time was also terrible. The parts fit and quality was not an issue.


But a newer version of the GFX would be very cool. It is already an awesome charger. For that matter the original Turbo 30, 35, 35BL and 35 Stealth are still great chargers.

Later,

lol,
figured it woudl get a response eventually...

I canunderstand your point that the car wasn't dominant, but it was also a new release with limited support so saw limited exposure...

Terrible IMO is a terrible choice of words...the T1 was and is a car that carries serous potential to compete for just about anyone willitn to properly setup a PB suspension, even if not honed for the current top-pro level...

Now back to the topic at hand...any further info as to what's coming up from CE with the charger revision?

Dyno would be cool but then how much would is cost $1000? The only change I'd like top see to the Turbo line is being able to charge lipo packs. 35 amps is enough discharge for me.
