Default 8T 2.0 Carbon Towers

Does anyone make them?

i can only find the old 8T versions which i know fit, but i really would rather update to the new version

I need a new set before the end of the month so i can take them to a big event

I talked to xtreme racing on the phone and said they would have some in a couple of weeks, the other guy who made them....can't think of his name right now (the same one who made them for the D8, 5mm)....said that he was waiting on more stock, I sent him a payment and he sent me a refund.

I have been running a set of carbon fiber towers that wb-racer-ace made me. He told me they were made out of Boeing grade carbon fiber. I was worried about them breaking but so far after several months no chips, no cracks no issues at all. This guy makes very high quality parts.

wb-racer-ace was the guy who I sent money to, but refunded since he said he didn't know when he would have more CF. I run the xtreme racing ones on my 8ight buggy in the front and matrix concepts one in the rear with no problems, the xtreme racing ones are 4mm and the MC ones are a little thinner 3.5mm maybe.

Martix tower's are also 4mm Not 3.5mm

Extreme does not use the same grade Carbon Robert at Matrix does.....Robert's main business is composite's....Extreme....well they make knock off stuff of every thing from low grade alum to SSG which is a FAR Cry from Real CF

I supply shawn aka wb-racer-ace with the sheet's....they are directly out of the freezer from boeing and are 4.9-5mm....this stuff is on another level as apposed to ANYTHING else on the market...i can Guarantee that no one else is using the same grade of material we are...its not $$ feasible to say the least.....Shawn should be receiving more material in the next couple weeks.(people gotta take vacation's you know)

My 1.0/2.0 hybrid tower's are holding up just dandy.

I just mic them an you're right, matrix concepts are 4mm, and the xtreme ones are closer to 4.5mm. As far as xtreme and what they use, all I know is that they are lightweight and don't break...that's all that matters to me.
