Default Anybody interested in custom parts ? (chassis,a-arms,motor mounts,shock towers etc)

Hey Guys,
I am thinking about starting to make custom parts for people. Such as a-arms , shocktowers, motor mounts , chassis's ,servo mounts, Etc out of 1/4" lexan. I am wondering if anybody would be interested in some parts? I could make parts for pretty much any vehicle I would just need a mock up or the stock part to trace. I could make parts for relatively cheap too. Let me know if you guys have any interest. Here are some pics of some parts I have made..
Thanks Ethan

Its my custom Team Associated TR3 (tc3 truggy) you can find it here http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=146640 The parts are very strong. I have heard that this material is actually literally bulletproof its the same kind of stuff used in bulletprrof windows and shield. here are some more pics.

A viable business as long as the parts are not cut by hand

OK I am on those pics. Actually the parts are hand made unfortunatly I have no access to a mill or cnc. Though I find that the cuts are pretty good. Peace Ethan

you could make a stamp out of sharpened bits of metal for some parts... as long as you make a stand for it it should be ok

Interesting Idea. So you would stamp the parts out of the lexan? Sounds like that would take alot of man power. Peace Ethan

I stumbled across this thread yesterday, and seeing as I'm currently working on my own home-built chassis, it caught my attention.

My wife suggested to that I make my chassis out of lexan, but I dissmissed that idea as I thought that it would be too brittle. After reading about your successful attempt with lexan, I've reconsidered and have already cut out the bottom decks for two chassis. ( still have to mill out key areas to remove the "slab" look )

I've been looking on both your website and Ultimate RC, which you give the links to, but I can't find any additional pictures of your truggy. Any chance you could re-post those pics?

In the mean time, I'll continue work on my chassis which will be used for on-road carpet racing and I'll be sure to post up my finished product.

ummm....flex and durabulity...these are 2 issues here, it does look good, but it will not hold up under any ruff or racing conditions, this is a good idea for making prototype parts, and mock fitting things togther befor you cut out of graphite or have parts molded! I like the thought! nice work

I will be testing these parts for durability. I am a basher and thats the most important for me. I have heard these parts are very strong. So we will see. Peace ethan
