CFK chassis...

Image
Probably, you already know the CFK chassis I am using on my personal Shrediquette. The chassis is really light, and I like the look a lot. While the chassis I am using was cut by hand using a jigsaw, now there seems to be a much easier way to get a chassis like this:
Max from California contacted me some days ago, and has the possibilities to make some sets of my chassis from carbon. If you are interested, please feel free to contact Max:

I made a rendering to show the two different sizes that I designed. I am planning to order the mini chassis, because I am currently making a mini-Shrediquette (153mm distance between motors).

Sizes of the chassis':
Mini: 10cm diameter
Standard: 14,5cm diameter
