Carbon fiber chassis available ‘off the shelf’

Engineering company Dash-CAE has developed a new 'off-the-shelf' carbon fiber monocoque chassis for two-seat vehicles.

According to the company, the TR01 is available in a standard form, although it can be adapted to end user requirements. It has a stiffness of 35,000Nm/Deg, weighs 50 kilograms, and is priced under £30,000.

“The TR01 chassis opens new possibilities for niche automotive manufacturers, and larger international OEMs by offering an affordable, versatile, lightweight, and high-stiffness carbon monocoque chassis,” said Tim Robathan, CEO.
