Discussion in 'FG Leopard' started by SELWA, Apr 17, 2007.
Has anyone tried or seen a carbon chassis on a leopard? I've pondered it a few times.
there was a dude on rcu who manufactured the sweetest lookin' cf fg mb/mt chassis with optional cf sideplates which i assumed would have been very successful had he actually gone ahead and sold them.
Yup I remember those! They were sweet!! I have a friend who races 1/5 on-road and he may know someone with an on-road carbon chassis that they don't need!
would it stand the knocks tho?
wouldnt just scratch and dent like the alloy one?
This is a copy of the link I saved on CF. It does not sound to promising for off road.
Great info! I think the FG carbon chassis is around 4.5mm. If I can get one for a good price (Less than a new chassis) then I'll go for it.
yeah carbon fibre bumper shock towers and radio trays yes great id be a bit dubious about a cassis thou for offroad
mite be worth trying, but any imact thats at a fine point will just shatter the resin, so may be worth avoiding driving on large gravel and the like, but for grass and loose mud, i don't think there should be a problem?
i have ordered cf from this place http://graphiteelegance.com/ . its not the glossy stuff but it cheap and its made well. he will make what size u want. i ordered a 12"x24"x.100" sheet for like $60 a while ago.
I remember seeing those CF Leopard bottom plates at eBay Germany a couple of years back, and at decent prices.
The gearhead in me wishes that I had gotten one.
