Has anyone used their products? How did they hold up? Was the fit and finish any good?

What are you thinking about purchasing from Dragon Racing? I have heard horro stories of their chassis bending and even completely breaking.

I bought a set of titanium universals from Dragon Racing a while ago. I liked the fit and finish and they were extremely light compared to the stock universals I was replacing. After several days of practice and a few races, my universals started to develope slop. Their titanium universals wore out way to fast IMO.

I just got one of their chassis. Doesn't fit!!!! Now they want me to pay another $8 to send it back. If I send it back I will have $16 dollars tied up in nothing!

Their universals suck. Both the titanium and regular. My Titaniums lasted a few tanks.
