I do have plans for them, but that's all I can say really. I do not yet have any dates set.

Kevin, could you post a carpet setup for the chassis for us? Doesn't have to be the super dooper hot ticket, just a starting point.

Yes, the chassis and top deck is made of 3mm thick carbon fibre.

Has anyone got their HTS chassis kit yet?

Yes it is carbon fiber.

That is why I am going to post a better picture. I had to increase the contrast in the photo and it blasted out all of the carbon fiber weave pattern and brightened up the edges of the carbon fiber in the picture which is why it looks weird. I'll post a new one real quick here.

Wow! That looks even better than the pictures on the site! Is the chassis slightly different as it looks narrower in some places but looks really good. Also, do the side braces come out a bit further?

I'm still waiting for mine but seeing as though it's an international order it is expected, I wonder when it'll come...

Are the side braces now 3mm thick?

Oh, one more thing, just wondering if the alloy bulkheads will encorporate the camber link mounts as I think that would be a really good idea to have the upper bulkhead as all one piece.
