Did everything so far by myself (execpt for respray) which makes it even more satisfying - as I'm sure all you who have built your own rides will agree to.

Dunno dude, but the things just crumble when hit. My friend hit a tree at 20km/h and the headlight was pushed right up against the coilpack.This was a really light hit probably less than 15kmh on impact :confused:
