Interesting pics...

As expected there looks like there has to be a lot of custom fitting to make this work right. Looks like he couldn't mount the motor with out grinding the chassis down.

Looks like the shocktowers are glassfiber material with just a little bit carbon.


And the parts seems to fit very bad...

wow if you look at the pics in one of the links I love the paper thin laer of CF over the fiberglass.Makes me wonder if it's really even CF or a graphic laminated over 100% fiberglass.

6-cell, machined 2.5 mm laminated carbon graphite
Shock towers: machined 3.0 mm laminated carbon graphite (front + rear)
Yep they even said so.

Orange plastic version soon to be released

Not defending these clone makers, but techincally, all CF is made up of laminations. It has to be, otherwise it would break easily. They laminate the carbon fibers in different directions to add strength.

That said, it is hard to tell in these low quality pictures if the core is indeed fiberglass or 100% CF.

True, carbon fiber is laminated. But the cheap stuff they use on these copy cat cars is merely a thin layer of carbon fiber on each side with the core of the material being cheap fiberglass. Nowhere near the strength and durability of true 100% laminated carbon fiber. Look closely at the cross section on the edge of the shock towers, you can see the change in the density of the layers.

And what is up with the rusty pliers in the pic?

Are we sure that those pictures were taken with a real Nikon, or were they taken with a "Nikron"...

None of the stuff connected to the bulkheads looks like it fits right.
