attn all XXX-S drivers

TEAM PRP known for after market PRO3 chassis and top decks is going into the design phase to make a few products for the
XXX-S. we are currently thinking about an improved shocktower w/ more adjustment. possibly in the distant future a woven chassis w/ machined bulkheads and a a top brace. what would you like to see? any specific parts that could be made from woven graphite that u can dream up?
Input always appreciated

i would love to see a xxx-s woven graphite chassis and shock towers, but i hope the sealed drivetrain is retained. maybe a woven graphite chassis with a separate lighweight molded lexan sealed drivetrain tunnel. then an upper deck to join the front and rear bulkheads. but for starters, i would be happy with just the carbon fiber shock towers and maybe a battery brace.

I would love to see a Woven Carno Graphite shock tower with more holes for chamber adjustment, and more holes for shock adjustment under US$10 each.

The shock towers would be something to mess around with but the chassis wouldn't be worth doing (IMO) because you would lose the sealed drive train and the chassis as it sits now is one of the best designs I've seen. The wiring tunnel would be lost and the way it's molded for the shock towers to lock into place would be gone. The best thing an after market company could do for the car (again IMO) is re-design the front and rear bumpers so that they don't flex as much. The shock towers only really needs another row of camber locations. If you add too many holes to the shock mounting locations you are going to end up with the Xray shock tower. A racer could dial themselves out with that much adjustment. What ever you come out with I'm sure you would've tested the crap out of it so when it does hit the shops the racer can just put it on and go. Good luck with whatever you come out with.

If it is a race to market, the graphite plate shock towers have already been done based on the standard holes and new towers are in test that include additional mounting locations.

As for the graphite main chassis; the tunnel besides providing a sealed system also provides a rigid form for the chassis.

A graphite main would take some good thought and its application my provide limited tuneability but for the aesthetic my provide a good WOW part.
