Default Carbon fibre Shock Towers and more...

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

Shock holder for when you bleeding your shocks to make it alot easyer for you.



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.

ben your shock tower holes may need looking at! dont see how it made you faster unless your shocks are built different lengths!

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?!
