Just lexan only...sorry no carbon fibre....it was inspired by a vette style
It looks high but once trimmed it works out to low profile looking body...it has a low roof line
so that the air isnt distrubed will it ruahes over the rear wing...it also has a no chamfer on the sides for increased down force for when it goes over jumps...I should show you a side profile as well...

I think overall the idea is nice but I feel the cab is a tad too far rearward and the tall front section is too tall/massive and blocky. I get the corvette summer vibe from it but buggies really can use better aero these days.

Here's a quick retouch I did in Photoshop to illustrate what I mean:



it keeps the look and feel of your design but makes it smoother and more sleek.

Thanks for the feedback...I see what you have done...I will be adding vents in that area which will take up that height...plus the material thickness ( finished product) will also loose a little detail...so what happens is that you will end up with no cross section area and end up with no body/shell/ stiffness in that area...once the scoops go in that area for cooling of electrics and motor... I thought about producing 10 bodies out of polycarb. I will add the extra detail and show more photos of it.
