When are we getting cheap, mass produced Rallye skidplates in Carbon/kevlar? Or even s glass? Might need to tool up a mold as a Summer project.

Cheers

mini-update

I've never come across a solid hit to this skid plate - no high-centers on rocks or such - so still no uber-test. But the little kicked-up rocks over the years have dinged it all up. Maybe I should try and touch it up? Nah...

Had a few days of chasing folks thru Panamint Valley (next to Death Valley in California); bottomed out the suspension, and once or twice the plate landed on rock, not to mention some large kicked up rocks... I'll get some pics and have some comments finally on this.

I could post up pics but there's really not much to show... some scrapes, scuffs, but nothing substantial. I give my seal of approval to this skidplate for moderate duty (anything shy of racing or those who ride like they are).
