Since its release in 2009, the Griffin 12 Conversion has been a leading contender if not dominating the 1/12 Modified scene. Since the prototype TQ’d the IIC in 2009, the Griffin has gone on to win back to back Snowbird Nationals and ROAR Nationals. Add in a victory at the 2010 IIC, dominating performance at the U.S. Indoor Championships, IFMAR WC Finalist in Germany, several other TQ’s and wins and the CEFX Griffin has set a very high bar in 1/12 performance. For 2011-2012 season, CEFX have decided to add in a few features to give Griffin users more options. Small shape changes to the chassis to improves stiffness along with tape slots and a raised center shock position now allow the Griffin user the option of multiple battery positions – the usual forward/back position as the standard Griffin but now also the option to run the battery turned ‘inline’. New tape slots and simple locators to run the battery on either side of the Griffin make it possible to maximize the balance and CG on different tracks depending on the main direction of corners. By request of our racers, we will also be making a ‘flexi’ Asphalt chassis in the same cut pattern as the Griffin 2011 chassis.
