Default Compositecraft returning soon

Those of you that were around the hobby in the 1980"s and 90's may remember a company called CompositeCraft Inc.
Compositecraft was the leading mfg. and pioneer of the carbon fiber chassis. Not only making the chassis but the materials to make the chassis from.
The Compositecraft Predator 1/10th scale car is considered by many the start of the 1/10 scale on-road class.
The Predator Lynx was the first link rear suspension car and won the first 1/10 scale on-road nationals.
We look forward to reuniting with old friends and making many new ones.
Stay tuned for updates
Jeff Davis

Cool, I had a Predator Lynx among many Composite Craft pieces. I recently bought some NIP parts off ebay to restore a 10L. Looking forward to hearing more.

I ran a few of the craft cars back in the day, never had a problem with them. Of course CompsiteCraft would be most welcome at the next builders cup if you have plans for an F1 car.

I know it's not a F1 car. But back in the day they did make a Tamiya F103 chassis. I sold my last new copy of that with my F1 car several months ago.

I hate my life.. But that's ok, good to have you back. Everybody liked your product. Do I need to call Hyperdrive and tell them life won't be so easy anymore.

I don't know if they have any old chassis plates. But they do have something working.

Very cool. What's next, they're going to repave Lake Whipporwill and we'll all start running Strike Force motors again? All kidding aside, every pan car I ever owned had a Composite Craft aftermarket chassis. Glad you're back.

How do you know about Strike Force Motors. I use to work for Redline and when Paul Davis left Redline he started Strike Force.
