Default holes in carbon fiber?

hey i have an old yokomo and i want to run it but it has no servo mounts so when i put the servo on with servo tape it always comes off. so i was wondering if i could make my own holes for my servo mounts

Yes you can

Drill the hole and then on the bottom drill it out with a bigger size drill bit but don't go all the way through the Graphie so that the Screws are then flush with the chassis. Then take some CA and a Q-Tip and seal the graphite where you drilled so it does not delaminate.

You can drill a 3mm hole and install mounts. Try to counter sink the hole so that way you can use countersink screws and your chassis stay smooth.

Or......

You can use "Shoe Goo" or "GOOP". Glue it down where you want it and let it sit overnight. You can find that at a hobby store or a shoe store.

Be VERY careful when drilling or cutting graphite, I have been told the dust is very dangerous and it makes you itch ALOT.

it's best to wet the chasis before drilling, & apply constant flow of water...

also, for precaution's sake, wear a mask to prevent breathing in the poisonous dust...

if u have problems countersinking the holes,use a body reamer and do it manually,after the 3mm holes have been cut.
