Continuing Talks with Fiberforge

We had a great call with Josh from Fiberforge today, discussing the possibilities of incorporating their technology in the Rally Fighter and future LM models. With each discussion, we learn more about the technology and what parts we could use it for, and how to manufacture those parts for the best results.

It's all going to come down to finding the part that is the right fit for our ideals of lightweight, rigidity, sustainability just to name a few key things, and of course, cost. The Fiberforge technology seems to make the most sense in replacing parts made from flat planes in areas with complex curvature and a deep draw where rigidity is key.

Check out the link above for a look at their updated website to follow along with their cutting edge process, just as we have done over the last few months.
