My understanding is that engine manufacturers want the heat to dissipate by travelling up to the heat sink...instead of down through the chassis?...don't ask me why but this could be a pro instead of a con.

heat rises therefore more of your cooling mechanism should be above the area where the heat is created... by having a cf chassis you will lose only a very small about of cooling, i would say its negligable

The only kicker will be the cost... Good for them to bring real race technology to RC's... it's about time.

If they layered the CF correctly and used a decent compound, with every 1/8 of inch, the CF is structurally 1.5-3 times stronger than a comparable piece of 6061 aluminum, add that to the fact that CF is far more ridged, you get one extremely strong and amazingly light (it probably only weighs a few grams) A-arm

The only problems that I can see are 1. the actuall rigidity: It may be TOO rigid, therefor if it takes a good hit, and the layers arent correct, it could disintegrate, 2. Price and 3. actual application ( i think if you are using this in a racing configuration you nothing to worry about).

Agreed with most points in isolation, but fearferret nailed it.. in a racing environment, with this kind of product, the owner most liekly will know what they are doing, and would understand all the issues...

That being said... i'm not sure who would think to be racing a savage so serious enough to put that kinda money into one.. but hey.. we can all dream...

I intend to race my savage a little this summer.. but mostly I am converting it back to a basher (in various forms eh PB) and keeping my S3 buggy for "racing"
