    The chassis will be WAY better than flat carbon fiber but i still dont know if it will hold up good enough, it looks awesome though.
    I'm always right.... sometimes!

    I've seen strong CF and brittle CF. So definately would like to see if Vantage can produce CF chassis with consistancy in the CF material.

    Yep I have seen it. It looks like it will lower the CG a little but I wouldn't be surprised if the price was around $120
    I'm Baaaaaaack!

    i really like the design they have for that chassis.
    Lowering the tank, battery box, and RX box to lower the CG.
    I think some other companies should redesign their chassis like that too.

    I also think that with that design with all the different curves and such will make the chassis stronger, because that is how the REVO chassis is.

    that also should add strength to the chassis, just like how the stock chassis sides are bent upwards
