    Custom Hop Ups

    I found a website that let's you design anything you want and they will make it for you, they will anodize it as well if you prefer. It seems the larger your order, the cheaper it is, maybe someone could design some cool rims and take orders and see how many people would be willing to invest in some custom alluminum rims, I think I'd want mine Blue Anodized.

    If I knew how to use CAD it would be great, but I don't so for me it is useless
    Knowledge is useless unless one can pass it on.

    Not entirely, if I designed, say an Alluminum Rear Shock Tower, that file can be saved, I could send it to you, then you could use it to place your order. I could choose to have mine Anodized in Green, while you could choose Red, or whatever you like. All we need is someone able to design it and willing to share that file.

    Someone can finally make some aluminum tranny gears and see if it holds up or not! People have always had a certain desire for metal gears, and this is a great chance.

    But all I know is a tiny bit of AutoCAD which I use for Architecture class at school.

    Cool site none the less.
