He has been making locking fasteners for years on things like drag cars, performance street cars, military drones, and more! He is a very cool guy and was thrilled to work with us on this project. He was able to take some of his existing products and modify them for use with many pipes and manifolds that we use in 1/5th scale RC. Continue reading
