Default Carbon chassis for 8ight 3.0?

I have been doing some research and seen there was a carbon chassis developed for the 8ight 2.0. Is there a carbon chassis for the 3.0? If so, can someone please direct me where to purchase one?

It would be greatly appreciated.

Do not bother unless it is for a flaslight car. Your engine will overheat with a carbon chassis. The chassis is a major heatsink for the engine.

Yes, I completely understand that since there is not any heat dissipation through
The carbon.

I'd like a new carbon chassis for the 3.0 as a project (not to run with).
I should have specified that before. I appreciate the reply.

Matrix Concepts made a nice one with an aluminum motor plate insert. There is actually one on ebay right now with some replacement parts. Probably one of the last ones around as I don't believe they are still in the chassis business.

I did see the used one eBay. After looking around for a few hours with no success I emailed Robert at matrix concepts. I am guessing he is no longer
there because was not accepted.

I am on the hunt for a new carbon chassis kit though.
