Sweep is adding more shores to the line up. They recently added a 50 and a 55. Now they need a 40 and perhaps even a 35.

You took it literally.

What I meant by "RC Crack" is ....... CF (along with most of this hobby) is too addictive and starts to become a habit. The rest of Team Nitronic knows this term all too well, LOL. I had to rescue one of our team members just last night from taking that all too well known "buy it now hit" ....... LFMAO. I'm sure a few others on here have been there before........

Carbon Fibre is the worst kind of crack, its the graphite crack! The weave hypnotizes you and convinces you to empty your wallet, and then when you think you have bought enough.. suddenly you start to wonder what other parts are available in the graphite crack.

You would actually need 4, two for the front and two for the rear. I recently had a pretty good crash, bent my Tekno chassis but that particular piece (arm holder) was intact but when I heard they have been breaking on other guys I figured why push my luck. So I've purchased 2.

They are no doubt very cool and most likely better. We just need to keep the class "real" so we don't all start driving "Xrays" again........... it's a slippery slope.
