They are about 1mm thick, autoclave cured prepreg so they are pretty stiff.

I figured you like those, I think you were one of the first ones that discovered they were so damn expensive

Awwwwwwesome, carbon is always best. I never thought about making the ECU plate from carbon, that thing has some weight to it.

I weighed the car finally after everything. 2963 Lbs with 1/3 of a tank of fuel without me in it.

The cords were labeled wrong on the scales so the higher weights are the front of the car.

It was 2900 before the widebody. So with the weight reduction stuff I have done has countered most of the added weight from the rollbar and larger wheels and brakes. There is still a lot I can do to drop some weight.

The goal for now is I’d like to have it at 2900lbs with me in it.

I was thinking about doing a battery relaxation to under the passenger seats with a smaller battery.

I’d also at some point like to upgrade all the subframes to TSSFab ones as well as a carbon driveshaft.

Generally good stuff ain’t cheap.

I do t really like that the TSSFab rear crossmember doesn’t have toe adjustment without an adjustable lateral link.
