Hi
I have been starting to make some carbon fibre shock towers and just bits i thought i would like and that may come in usefull.
I work in Speedy Models and the guy who owns that has asked me to make some bits for the shop over the next few weeks, So i thought i would post up some off the bits i have made for my self and see what everyone thinks?

Thanks
Ben

Carbon fibre K Factory shcok towers replacements.
I used these on sunday and i feel i went the fastest i have been round that track in a long while.The K Factory ones may look 100% carbon but there not , only the outer layers are the rest is not as strong so these shock towers will be alot stonger as is 100% carbon fibre.

what did you cut them with? A bread knife? Good effort, but I dont think you could sell them mate as that shock tower looks wonky?!
