The point is that this is a CLONE of the Exotek chassis which cost over $1000usd to develop and CSO was UNETHICAL enough to copy and sell as their own while incurring only $72.95 in development costs.

At another time I will point out the difference between Exotek's XR3'11 CF material which is manufactured here in the USA at the same facility since this year that Xray/ Photon/ Hot Bodies/ Associated and more gets theirs versus Chinese made carbon fiber...

On some fake Chinese touring cars they even use a chassis made By fibreglass but with 2 layers of cf on top and bottom so they look like cf chassis but they are not...
I'm not saying cso is doing that but it's just a tiny example...
It's always better to stay @safe side, exotek may even make a tiny discount on their prices you never know

Just cause the CF is different doesn't make it okay to copy the design!!!!!

@Fred
I reckon You didnt get my point
I never said Its ok to Steal (copy) someone else's design! but on the other hand If you look at todays modern Touring cars they all look like each other ...
All I was trying to say; What You Pay What you get
p.s I drive t3 with exotek chassis nowadays ...

I understood it, this is one of the issues with net communication, I shouldn't have quoted your post or I should have changed a word or two because if I were you I too would think my response was directed toward you but it was meant to chime in.

What are the benefits of the exotek chassi over the kit xray chassis? Seems like a good price compared to the xray one anyway

Yes you can't go wrong with it- Exact same carbon supplier as Xray, made in USA, much cheaper then Xray and it is like driving a T3'12.

Our center link steering bridge should be in stock Monday also

LOL. Very good. I'll keep an eye out for them. I was going to order the ones that RCMart has on their site but I would MUCH rather buy from someone I know makes excellent products with quality materials!

Plus in the USA too!
