wow...that's going to be one of the sweetest sleds I've ever seen.

I wonder how much the carbon fiber tunnel was![:0]




















510 lbs with the heavy stock rear skid, Rt seat, and stock ski's. I think 480- 490 lbs with rear skid, seat and ski's replaced. I am very pleased with the results tryed to start it last night but I have a electrical connection problem. I will be going through the wiring harness tonight.

It would actually be more prone to breakage and bending wouldnt it. Cuz for crotchrockets they dont use carbon fiber for major load carrying structures like the frame. I dunno. It's a damn good job though.

no way would it be more prone to bending, it is way stronger than aluminum. They dont use much carbon fibre because it is not very cost effective

Doesnt carbon fiber get weak when it is scratched or damaged? Ive heard stories of carbon fiber mountain bike seat posts and handlebars breaking because the clamp was too tight or it got a scratch/gouge.
