Nylon --

A type of plastic used in many RC kits. There are many types of nylon:
High-Impact Nylon is able to flex with crash impacts to resist breaking. Most HPI wheels are made from high-impact nylon, as well as many of our suspension arms and shock towers.
Fiber Reinforced Nylon is a plastic that is mixed with fiberglass fibers to produce a stiffer plastic piece. The ratio of fiber to plastic will determine the stiffness of the piece. If it is too stiff, the strength advantage is lost because the piece can break too often. The electric RS4 MT uses a fiber reinforced nylon tub chassis.
Graphite Reinforced Nylon is another type of fiber reinforced nylon, except that instead of fiberglass fibers, the plastic is mixed with graphite fibers, the same type of fibers that make up the graphite mesh in woven graphite pieces. The ratio of graphite fiber to plastic will determine the stiffness of the piece. If it is too stiff, the strength advantage is lost because the piece can break too often. We offer graphite nylon suspension arms for our RS4 Pro 2, electric RS4 MT, Super Nitro RS4 and the Nitro RS4 2/RTR/Racer 2 kits, and the stock shock towers of the RS4 Pro are made of a different type of graphite nylon.
