Default Slash carbon fiber Tie-Bar

I was doing a work on my slash the other day when I noticed the stock tie bar was broke. So I talked to a buddy of mine and got a piece of carbon fiber from him and made a new one. Even though you can't see it that good. I think it look a lot nicer.

Thats the only thing I could come up to. Never had a problem with my Rustler, did not even know they put that part on the VXL models. Seams strange they used fiberglass. If they came up with it to stop the pins from spreading. Think they would of made it metal. Fiberglass will still let the pins flex a certain degree.

I wasn't planing on producing them but I seem to be getting a lot of good feed back from a few sites and have had a few people ask if I could make them one. Just want to know if it would be worth my time to make a bunch to sell or not?
