Default COBRA Parts.....

Hi All,

So theres been a delay on this build for a few weeks, while I decide which way to go on this. So I have decided.

I have been in talks with Fibre Lyte and they have made a COBRA chassis for me along with Front Tower (standard), Rear (wide) tower and mounting for ballstuds and Tower.

So I will be building a complete Fibre Lyte COBRA, little different from the start.

I have also had the other bits come I was waiting for so I will be starting this evening....

Default Front End.

I have decided to change the ballstuds and have gone for 4-40. The reason for this is so I can use the RPM 4-40 White ballends. The nuts will be changed for the colour Purple along the way........

The FIBRE LYTE Tower, as normal is a cracking job.
