Default CEFX Xanthos Oval help?

Trying to get a CEFX Xanthos up and running. I am having an issue with the right side tire sticking out past the body. Not sure what's original on this car after the years. The body may not be mounted perfect but it's pretty square on the chassis.

Does anyone know if the car came with the 1.125 right side hub or the long one. If it needs the short one what do I need to complete the thrust bearing setup, diff cone/spacer?

Thanks

I don't know which hub that car was built for but there are still a lot of old CEFX oval guys hanging out in the hobbytalk forums. Check over there and you should get an answer.

Also I think a lot of the long hubs were designed to still use the standard axle so the only thing you would have to change is the hub, everything else should be the same.

Most manufacturers made a short and a long diff hub. Long was 1 3/8" and short was 1 1/8". Any short hub will work and use the same cone, bearing etc. I have Asc., KSG and even Hyperdrive made these. Hub lengths differ cause you can use an off-set pod or straight up.

Thanks, racing the car for the first time today, see how it goes. FYI, AE has short hubs on their website dirt cheap.

Wide ones are more popular. I have enough narrow ones myself. Good Luck.

Josh made his own hubs. They fit on a 1/12 scale axle and came in two versions. A short which is 1.2 or 1.25 and a long that was 1.4". The short one was for his cars. A long hub (1.4") will be too long for that car and a standard short is too short (1.125). So you can either find one of his hubs, I have a few that I will sell or use a short standard hub and space it out.

Thanks for the info, I have a short one I will space out and give it a shot. Does anyone have the brass weights for sale?
