    Thanx guys.

    Not just practice, but cut everything large, then file down to shape. It takes longer and is harder, but the stuff comes out nice.

    Default Nice Birthday Present

    There are many parts that I can't fabricate. Such as these whaling shocks:



    Check this; I was talking to an old R/C buddy, about what ever topic. Then; because I got a new scaler to build, I told him I'm building a 1.9 scaler.

    He says really? I just happent to these shocks, brand new, never been used. He runs 1/8 fast buggies, so he aint got no time for scaler shocks. I say what do ya want for them. He says, "Happy Birday".

    Awesome Dude!

    Thanx Pat.

    And installed. They are wicked smooth:

    Thanx. The chassis is coming out ok. I'm very happy with the outcome so far.

    Dude. Those towers were a pain to make. One really needs a CNC to produce those.

    In fact; to any manufaturers out there equiped, ready to be brazed custom parts would probably be a hit.

    Look up all the brazing info ya can, get the materials, and start experimenting. I'm glad I did, and pretty positive you will be too.
    Parts come out so strong.
