CEFX C12 BL 1/12th scale chassis

 CEFX C12 BL 1/12th scale chassis

According to a statement by Josh Cyrul, top racer and designer of CEFX cars and parts, the company will stop trying to make their C12 1/12th scale chassis suitable for both brushed and brushless configurations as the changes needed to make the BL car competitive would compromise the cars setup in non BL configuration too much. Hence the C12 will stay as is and the company will further develop a specific BL version, the first picture of which is shown above.

Josh Cyrul modified Kyosho Stallion TF-5

CEFX touring car

More car sightings from the Snowbirds, this time we get to see Josh Cyruls self modified electric touring car, which looks based on a Kyosho Stallion TF-5. I don’t know if this car has been seen before, but what is very interesting (click image to make larger) is the one piece carbon fiber bulkhead and chassis stiffener. This layout allows you to run without a high C of G top deck, yet still benefit from a stiff chassis, and I’m pretty sure its a lighter system than the conventional approach taken by other manufacturers. The car also features other self made parts including the chassis, steering blocks as well as the entire, centrally mounted, steering system.
