It's a reality! Carbon Fiber DTM!!

Post by MASSIVE TYPE IV » Wed Mar 10, 2004 11:42 am

Okay, The mold is done!

Should have a completely carbon fiber DTM available in less than two months!

This shroud will be exacting to the fiberglass version but will simply be made from carbon fiber. It will look absolutely amazing! When guys see what it looks like I don't think many people will be favoring the 911 for cosmetic reasons any longer!

The shroud will also be available with the matching Carbon fiber backing plate, matching air filters, and valve covers. It will be available in standard carbon, blue, red,green and yellow.

If you are interested in this shroud, or in buying just the shroud to swap your existing DTM internals into, email us ASAP as we are starting a wait list for them. Our Super Hero engines will be getting these first and the rest will be available according to how many the builder can make and keep the quality super high...

As for cost, the shroud alone will probably be 250-400.00 so the cost of the kit will go up the same amount.

I will be posting pics as the flaws are worked out of the mold and the pieces start looking the way they should!

I thought carbon fiber doesn't burn or discolour with heat....

Oh, it'll burn. Its just more heat resistant than the metal its replacing, also less of an "OUCH" factor if you touch it while the engine is running or hot than the metal - looks cooler too. Never heard of it discoloring though.

It will burn... and it is also a conductor of electricity... Zen found that out a few weeks ago!

Jake I thought your DTM didnt cool as good as a nasty chrome shroud. Not being rude. Just, why make it if it doesnt cool as good?

Again not trying to be rude

This is the Type 4 DTM.... It came out on top of the testing....

The Type I did get spanked by the 36HP shroud in round one

Any plans for a silver/aluminized carbon fibre (or aluminized fiber glass)? I'd guess that would be a popular seller!?

Just one! Its going in my Thing...

The material is very hard to find, as it is used in very few applications.

Ohhhh.

I have emailed, and REALLY want the full blown deluxe kit for my next engine build...

Problem is I am in the UK :(

Will it be an issue? Or can something be arranged?

Cheers for now,

Heh, Heh, Heh!

Yea, the strands inside the spark plug wires are CF, aren't they?

I got Carbon Joe valve covers and one is discolored,
am wondering what caused it.

Looks like the heat from the clamp did it!

I take a pic this weekend and post it Monday.
I'm going fishin!
:-D

i managed to burn it and discolor it all at once. :D

i had a switched hot terminal mounted to the c/f with rubber grommets between the terminal and the c/f and the same for a ground terminal. since the screws were touching the terminal and the c/f (even though the terminals themselves were insolated) they found each other.

Cool,
Have emailed aircooled.net, hopefully I will get a response as I have funds available now for either a standard or CF dtm (REALLY want a CF one).

Any idea how much more than the stock dtm the carbon one will be (full deluxe kit)?

Cheers for now,
