But maybe I was using the wrong tools ;-) you can allways try and let us know.
yeah, that makes sense. I am not a composite guy but I have been involved in motorsports and another full size project that used carbon.
I am used to molds in the manufacturing process and not machining...I do know you can inlay kevlar but not sure if that helps or not.
If there was a way to manufacture...are there advantages to using kevlar in chassis construction? Cost savings, extra weight?
