Carbon Fiber Tub chassis. Good stuff. Real F1 cars use that.

The guy that make the mold is into RC planes and mold parts all the time for himself and friends...my bro says he might do it for nothing... just cost of materials....It's been a long while I visited the shop...but I'll see what I can do... if it happans it will be most like a Pro4 tub chassis..since that's my current car...
Oh sure, get our hopes up and then crush them!

I've asked if they can do a tub chassis...they said yes...but pricey.
anybody interested in a 'cuda tub chassis...
That's very true, I guess I forgot that the top is there for cosmetics...

I think it's hard to really communicate well with pms and such, easy to take things out of context. With most people in this world being brain dead, they really can make things difficult.

Hmmm, Why is there soo much useless babble on this thread? Can we please limit the posts to relevant info? I need to scroll through 5 pages of crap before finding any tips or setup help.
