    thats y i started using carbon fiber. its alot stronger and its lighter. i droped like 13 or 14 ounces on that compared to the stock setup. im thinkin bout goin into busness and making them for ppl that has the 4-tec to buy since it looks like traxxas is never gonna have a graphite chassis in stock.

    Thanks DJ. I was trying to trade the car for a T/E-Maxx but nobody wanted it so I decided to keep it and dump more money I don't have into it:D I eventually want to replace all the plastic parts with either graphite or aluminum, but parts (aftermarket) for a TA04 are a little hard to find.

    I like your custom carbon work, crazyguy. Where do you get carbon fiber sheets and how much do they cost? My local (65 mi from me) hobby store only carries the "popular" stuff so I'm having to get everything online.
