Default What do you want to see made?

As apart of a new company that plans on making lexan and aluminum hop-up parts for cars and eventually kits and conversion kits. I was wondering what do you guys want to see be made and what hop-ups would you buy?



Thank you,
Ethan

That is possible, and we will consider it.

Anything else?

lexan mud guards for the RC8 that mount on the a-arms like the ones that are out there for the losi buggies.

Something that I've seen built but not mass produced, as far as I know, is an adapter for the starter box so you can start multiple cars without changing the starter box around. It's nothing more than some L brackets that go through the chassis opening for the clutch. Instant alignment every time.

These are both very good ideas. Simple, yet innovative.

Aluminum plugs are possible. Hopefully they don't throw off the balance by the weight. Maybe some type of plastic can be trued to size.

A body painting stand with foam rubber at the contact points to hold the body securely in place, yet be easy to reposition it!
