Having a Mission with an S1? chassis, I was wondering how much lighter the Carbon Fibre chassis was and if there is any difference in it's rigidity over the standard item.

Does anyone have any specific figures?

Thanks

You want rigidity figures
No really, I don't have any figures to tell... but I suppose the difference would be in the neighborhood of 20-40 grams. I recall weighting them some years ago and Mission CF was ~60 grams lighter than it's S1 counterpart. I hope my memory serves me correctly...
CF is definitely lighter and more rigid than S1. It's also more brittle.

What I really mean is the curbs at WLRC on the track, not roadside curbs.
