Default NOT THICK ENOUGH

The penguine stuff isnt thick enough for todays chassis, i bought some 2'x2' 3 mm thick for $200 making 6 chassis out of it all. Wait and see what this car is going to look like... KILLLLLERRRRRRR TC3..
This aint no BMI-DEMON Copy cat chassis, this is a chassis that has proper balance front and rear, and side to side.

This sell carbon in many thicknesses...from paper thin to 3mm+

http://www.robotcombat.com/marketplace_carbonfiber.html

the paper thin sheets are great if you want to re-surface old graphite or change the color of black graphite to another color..

What do you intend to do with it? I have a couple 18 x 24 panels that are in the .090-.100" range. I'll give you one heck of a deal. E-mail or PM for more info.

Thicker than 3mm?

I couldn't imagine how much thicker you'd want? A BMI with the 3mm chassis and upper deck is just about as stiff as it gets.

Good luck with that...at some point it can't get much stiffer.

There's always the mentality, "If two viagra are good, just imagine how good 10 would be?"
