nice chassis. After you get your sales going out there, you should look into having colored chassis available. Would be a cool option for those who want to personalize there vehicle.

The cost of coloured C/F shouldn't really bump up the cost, but then you would also then have to have a batch CNC machined up, so if you had Silver, black, red and blue, thats a LOT of stuff to get made to cover ALL bases.

In the end, the chassis is there for a purpose, and that is to hold everything together tightly, not flex (or flex a little) and the last thing you worry about, is does it look trick....

I have seen the car, it is well engineered and thought out.

As far as I know, Fibre-Lyte don't do coloured carbon so even if I wanted to (which I don't) I couldn't have any coloured parts made.
