Carbon Chassis Kick-up Qu.?
Hi All,

Out of curiosity, is anyone making carbon chassis plates with a kick-up?

Is it even possible?

Thinking of making a one-off chassis but the kick-up is the issue!

Thanks for reading.

You can get them made, itís just very expensive! Fibre-lyte are very good for parts/advice :)

Maybe go for a flat chassis and then add a 3d printed kick up wedge.

CF with a kickup is possible, in fact you can make very complex shapes using carbon fibre, as you find on hypercars and F1 cars. 3D parts even as simple as a plate with an angle in it requires a mould and production process dedicated to that specific product. 2D designs you can simply machine from stock material which makes it a relatively cheap option.

As suggested by alex97, you could consider a design consisting of multiple parts. For instance, the ORB Forward uses a metal kickup plate and it is joined to a flat chassis by another chassis plate, as you can see in the manual (link). Another example: Exotek offered a CF +8mm chassis for the Team Durango DEX210, where they used an aluminium kickup block that mounted to the leading edge of the CF chassis using 4 screws (link).
