How about some aluminum wheel scrapes because the carbon fibers break pretty darn easy.And I know Fioroni already makes the aluminum shock pistons but they cost so much if their was a way you could make them cheaper that would be awesome.Hope those are resonable ideas.

I have a blown Ninja.21 and its too much $$$ to rebuild it. I was thinking of making an aluminum base for it. Some what like a trophy base (step down design) and put it up with my trophies. That Ninja won alot of races for me. also a shock refilling stand... maybe, I hate holding the things while the bubbles raise. lol

That may be possible in the future.

Both of those may be possible.

a lexan chassis guard would be great!! it would take a lot of the wear off of the chassis and save you the expense of having to buy a new chassis more often.

If you want to use brass bushings to reduce slop in the 8, forget it. Do it right, figure out how to use bearings.

why do we need a chassis protector using a hard anodized aluminum chassis?

because hard anodized aluminum chassis are expensive, and they do wear out. an inexpensive lexan chassis protector would help prevent it from wearing out as fast. therefore, not having to buy a new chassis as often.
