    Exo-Carbon Parts for Jato

    Wow, these parts are superb.
    The Revo wing too.
    Do you think it can be adaptable to the Jato ?
    Cause a Jato with Exo-Carbon Parts and the new Revo wing...

    At first time, that's what I say to myself, but I don't like the tummy.
    I want a smart Jato...

    they are the stock parts, and are "coated" with a layer of carbon fiber. look in the news thingy and look for the carbon parts and i think it says it in there. but it is just stock parts covered in CF. the ultimate would be RPM parts with CF!!!

    Dunno if any of you guys have ever worked with carbonfiber... you cant just cover something in carbon fiber... you make the part out of carbon fiber. Its more or less just a carbon fiber sticker. Made of some sort of plastic...

    Ding Ding Ding We have a winner.

    It’s just carbon fiber looking skin covering stock parts. This is a quote from the add with the key words highlighted. They are still nice looking.

    “Traxxas Exo-Carbon components add a glossy, high-tech carbon-fiber look to Jato. The innovative Exo-Carbon finish forms a tough skin over standard Jato composite parts resulting in the quality and strength you expect along with the appearance of high-gloss carbon fiber. Exo-Carbon resists fuel and abrasion for long-lasting good looks.”
