Yea, it's carbon wrap, but it's 3M's newer scotchprint 1080 carbon vinyl flex wrap. They were out of Di-Noc when I went, but this stuff looks great so I picked it up instead.

I found them in red on RC-Arts online store a little while ago, but they sold out real fast. Guess that's what happens when you hesitate hahaha. I'll be keeping a look out for them!

I got some more work on the car done, it's finally starting to take shape. Only a few more things left to do before it's done, for now haha.

You can check out my blog ( http://madhouserc.blogspot.ca/ ) for a full writeup on the buildup if you'd like, but here are some images of where I left off today.

i found those new drb nuckles btw... someone has them posted on yahoo auctions :)

seeing your chassis in black makes me wish they made a black DIB... too bad SSG has better flex properties then natural carbon :(

Nice find! I'd like to hear what you think of them once you get a chance to try them out. Hopefully I can get my hands on a set as well :D

I really wish it came stock in black as well. Hopefully the wrap holds up as it took quite a bit of time lol, but only time will tell. I recently saw on a Japanese blog a dyed SSG chassis to black, and it looked great. For anyone interested, it could be another alternative. I'm not sure what kind of dye was used or anything though, but it's something I may look into if the wrap doesn't hold up.

Nice the black carbon looks really dark makes it like a real car, I am really interested in your view of the Tekin system.
