Default T3 Chassis, is graphite the only alternative?

I've searched high and low and it appears graphite is the only alternative for the T3 chassis. Has anyone ever seen anything else?

Durango made an aluminum chassis that was setup for saddle packs and was apperantally much lighter, its probably not in production any more though, not to mention it was probably very expensive.

this thread really intrigued me, so I looked into it. It seems that the Durango chassid was an electric 4wd version of the t3. Which looked sweet. Apperently the kit cost something like 1200 bones!! Ouch, but the rumor on the web page was that Associated was buying the rights from the manufactorer "Gerd". I think it said it was German made. That was just a brief overview thoug. I didn't read it in detail.

I've thought that it may be easier (and cheaper) to have an aluminum chassis created, I'm going to look into that.
