Kenny - We have your order and it will ship before the Birds (probably later today or tommorow).

I spoke to our carbon supplier and they are supposed to be getting back to me later today on when our next batch of panels will arrive. Almost everyone who sent me an e-mail will get their kits from this first batch. Fred K, McSmooth and TLove are the first ones on my waiting list that I should be able to take care of by the end of this week. I'll update more soon!!

Sal - Quite possibly.. I've just got to get Angel on taking care of shipping and sending out the invoices to everyone. She should be in later today to sort all that out.

I'm a machinest, and my family has ran a machine shop for 30+ years.

5 thousands is about the thickness of a human hair. So your worried about your r/c car being withen .001 ? Get real. It seems like Josh and his family are some sharp cats. If they trust its good enough to hand to the top drivers i'm sure its plenty good

Josh, you don't need to post pics to prove your process. There are more accurate machines than a cnc router based machine I am sure, but a lot of it depends on the operator. You have made upgrades on your machine and checked them on a cmm, it doesn't get any better than that.

If people really new what a cmm was and that your holes were below .001 tolerance, then you are at the top of your game.

To be quite honest, Pretty much all of the cars in the industry have the carbon fiber cut on CNC routers. It is the ideal machine for the job. As far as accuracy goes, machine accuracy is only as good as the fixturing and tooling. You can take a CNC milling machine with an accuracy of .00002 and run it into the toilet with weak tooling and fixturing. I fired a guy because of this. The minimal load from cutting carbon fiber will not push the machine to its limits for accuracy. Every time i cut my carbon fiber components i think about getting a router. It hurts to run them on my CNC mill because i could be using the machine for other jobs that require the HP and rigidty of the Mill. Next time you look at your Xray,Corally,Schumacher,Tamiya,HB,or any other chassis for that matter, Take a close look because they were all made on a router.

BTW, no sheep here, Josh and i havent always seen eye to eye. This is just facts.

How many Phi kits will you get out of each mill bit? Like four?

protc3 - Thanks Jason. I know you have far more machining experience and WAY better machines to work with so it's great to hear your opinion. We don't always see eye to eye but thanks for your input on this one!!

adamge - Honestly, it really depends on the tooling/set-up we use. I really don't like to discuss it as I know all of us who cut carbon have spent a ton of time (and $$) learning how to get a good product out. No one stepped up and said "This is how you machine carbon". Even all of us who currently cut carbon do not compare notes with each other....

MAD - I saw the e-mail and you are on the list of people to get kits out to this week. I'll e-mail you more details soon.

I just got off the phone with our carbon supplier and we will have another 30 panels here Tuedsay of next week so we should have no problem taking care of anyone who wants any of the PHI parts at the Snowbirds. We are finishing cutting what we have in the next hour and everything will be ready for shipping tommorow.
