Carbonfiber frame, nice! Iam wondering if it will be a trellis frame made of carbon, or a more conventional twin spar design. Probably the latter.

Glad to see that they are trying to keep cost down by changing rules to benefit a Manufacture that's engine's are more durable and long lasting.

That would complete the circle from the "state of the art" pressed steel box frames of the past, wouldn't it?

The difference being that if you filled the frame with helium, it would float away.
