Default Hyper 8.5 pro diet?

Got a 8.5 pro and was chasing some ideas or help on ways to give it a diet.Is there a company that makes good quality carbon shock towers,Battery boxes,cross members?Is there titanium screw kits or anyother weight loss programs to put the now a little heavy hyper 8.5 on?

No rumor....Robert over at Matrix has the buggy chassy out for the 8...the trug chassy is still not available....also he had no intention to Ever do anything with a Hyper 8.....at least from what ive read in the original carbon chassy thread.
