Well make sure whatever TC you buy next doesn't have four wheels, two shock towers, front/rear diffs, two belts, etc because that's already been done before and is WAY tired design!
You can't always reinvent the wheel, and even if you do it's not always for the best. If it works, then why not stick with it and try to make small improvements to set yours apart from others.
With that said, one person has tried to go a radical direction and that's Josh Cyrul's prototype TC here at Snowbirds. Instead of massive alum bulkheads his car has a heavy duty (5mm?) backbone down the center of the car connecting the front and rear.
