No I didn't, as on the paper it hasn't got anything that grabbed my attention.

It's a really good price, too! (wouldn't let mine go for that )

He's got, easily, $700-$800 in it.

That's the only thing I didn't get was the servo mount. You could easily add that too it... but just look at all the other blue goodies all over it!!!!!

But if you want I can sell it to you for a higher price

And I extended the two day shipping offer to 10pm eastern tonight

Very nice! I'd love the flex top deck for the Exo 5.
Also, not sure if any info will be given out now, but aluminum bulkheads for EVO 6, will they be closed design similar to the original ones or open like the stock EVO 5?

Cheers,
Vlad

Thanks!
It will be similar to the Evo5 set with the option to print the gear shield on Shapeways.

Mike did you use the flex style top deck at Toys for Tot's last weekend with no sway bars on your EXO6? Maybe the prototype alloy bulkheads also??

Any chance of this top deck being made for the EXO5 or do I have to cut the tabs out of a standard top deck for more flex?

Can't wait to see the new bulkheads for the EXO6! Great idea to have Shapeways print the dust shields.

I've got two of them waiting for the conversion:} If they're as good as the bulkheads on the EXO5, I think the value of my EXO5's just dropped!!

Hi! Hope you enjoyed Japan.

Yes to the flex top plate, I have been using them since the CenCal race. No to bulkheads- still waiting for samples.
No plans for the EXO5 at this time so I would slot the stock plates.
