Noted. I was under the impression that a carbon fiber body, although not a stressed member, would be advantageous because it can be made thinner, and thus lighter than a fiberglass body for the same...

I think it comes down to how unobtainable a real Stradale is. I'm...

That's really amazing, thanks for the link!

I found a complete set of drawings on this forum, with all of the various profiles for side, top, front, and back. I then stitched them together and scaled them in AutoCAD (software by AutoDesk), and...
