[DML] Re: New composite underbody



I am not familiar on how the new black bodies were built...but I know for a fact...that what gives/makes the original black bodies it's strength(and weight) is the High density foam that was structurally integrated and engineered into certain areas(cavities) of the black bodies for not only crash protection..but for rigidity..if they built a "hollow" black body..it may be lighter..but it will not have the crash safety of the original.
