I, and most other racers, don't have the necessary equipment to machine graphite well and precisely. So I was wondering if it would be possible to custom order parts, made of that high quality graphite, for other cars besides the TC3, or would it be hideously expensive? I was also wondering if you know a place where we could purchase small amounts of high quality carbon fiber to try milling ourselves.

I think it looks great. I want to get my hands on one of these to see how it performs at the track. Let me know when you are taking orders!

I was going to try the other conversion kit but I think I will wait for this one. I like the original layout of the TC3, battery location and all. Best of all $99 plus an option to customize. Do let us know when you have this ready.

I am interested in the top plate for the stock tub also. Throw up some pics of one that fits the stock tub when you get a chance.

Is there anyway you could add nerf bars to the chassis, my track uses pvc as borders, when I first got my tc3 I kept breaking the rear arm mount from clipping the corners.

protc3, first I'd like to say awesome work! That upper deck is nice and considering what you get $100 is very good deal. Do you plan on manufacturing any other hopups for differant cars?
