The down side is, that it's very heavy compared to other materials available. Aluminum or graphite are much lighter and stronger for the same size piece of lexan. Just my opinion because I've tried and worked with lexan before.
Opinion duelly noted!
Only problem i have encounter with lexan is that it's very flexable if not braced well, as for tough, Only had one chassis fail, but that was my bad in a design problem, it's has been long fixed and yet to have the same failure. Yes there is lighter matterials but lexan is way easier to work with for me! As for abuse, I'm evil to my trucks
! once in a while I go to B&B to run and I have raced once there as well, with these chassis never failed at the track either. CF or Alum would and does make a neat chassis matterials, but I wanted to diffrent
JMHO from one who continues to use it
They are diffrent to say th least!
