    is it wet-lay?

    I don't know what the construction is. Rossion caption to the picture posted 3 days ago..."Carbon fiber & kevlar cockpit fresh from the mold, ready for a trim and fitting."

    the rossion clams are very light already. lighter than the Noble.
    If we vacuum bagged normal fiberglass, it would be just as light, but not as strong and half the price.

    Is that not structural? Was wondering when Mosler tech would transfer.

    none of it is structural to the integrity of the chassis.

    I made moulds of the noble tub so I can make myself a carbon tub for my car... My tub weighs 30kgs dead... Expect carbon one to be well under 15kgs yet stiffer!

    Mine will be vacuumed formed like the rest of my panels.

    It's wet lay, Vac bagged. I'd much prefer to see pre-preg, vac bagged and autoclaved as it would be lighter and more consistent. Rumor is they have an autoclave coming, but who knows?
