omnidirectional..haha....ya i guess u could say they are.....I didnt personally lay the sheets up.....My cf guy did....and he assured me that they are laid properly...as for the kevlar adding strength....tensile tests will tell that..Once we get a hold of a CNC or a Waterjet to make more copy's........as far as bonding the sheets.....they all come prepreg and when laid they are Pressed in a Mandrel and heated to 600Degrees....the kevlar is what take the heat.....regular Cf can be Cured at room temp if need be...but will be faster if heated......thx for the commments Horatio ...and water under the bridge about that argument on SC.

I like the REVO but it's really not bash worthy i hear from alot of Savy owners and im wanting a truck i can run instead of tune and replace parts on. I have another problem i hate buying someone elses problems i bought the t-maxx used and i hated that should i buy a savy new or used? I like the Savage X SS but i don't know how to build the truck or even have the tools to put it togeather. What do you all suggest should i get the X and just upgrade after breakage?
The Revo is good track machine, especially the 3.3. They're pretty durable for normal back yard use as well as racing.

By the sounds of things, you need to get a Savage XSS or LST2. Get some tools - you're going to need them either way, regardless of whether you start with a RTR (like the LST2) or a Kit MT (like the XSS). Don't be afraid of building a kit. They fall together these days - just like lego with screws - and while you build, you get to familiarise yourself with the machine.

not bad looking
Presumably a deliberate understatement....
