Well I got one tower done today. It is a lot of work to make these by hand. They are 6mm Quasi Carbon Fiber and I sealed them so this one is ready.

Coming along very nicely. Two thumbs way up.

How did you "seal" your CF?
I've heard it's only necessary to brush on some epoxy to the edges. I was figuring on just calling up Allred or Dragonplates when I come to that.

Really nice look truck. I've seen someone else do this shock setup and had an issue with the suspension not having any droop which was solved by using longer shock shaft ends to give that little extra length. Just a thought :wink:

I painted the body today. I put a carbon fiber fade on the front but I smoked it because I didn't want it too bright. I think it looks sick!!!!!!!!

You can seal with ca glue or clear finger nail polish.

Yo grab the savox sc1257tg. It's got a 0.07sec response time and will perfectly match the ERCM picco. I own two now and the throttle response is off the hook :)

Is that your own decal, or logo ontop?

The logo is painted on I had a sticker made that went on inside then removed it and painted it.
