Default G10 vs Carbon vs Lexan for custom chassis?

Hey guys trying to decide what to make my TR3 v2 chassis out of. The choices are G10 ,Carbon Fiber,and Lexan.It will mostly be used for bashing but I still want it to be light. Which do you guys think would be the best and why? Thanks Ethan

G10 is certainly the cheapest and most flexible ( which is a good thing for rc cars that aren't exclusively racecars. The beauty of g10 is that you could cut 3-4 chassis and still be half the price of carbon fiber. Lexan is far to brittle for such a highly stressed part. Feel free to pm with more questions, I am an engineer, and have been looking at building several chassis myself.

Good Luck!
