Hello I am looking at using carbon fiber to build some structural components for a powersport application. Have you built any thing that has impact stress on it and do you have any tips?

We have done several structural components with impact stresses.   
Carbon fiber is not the best material to use for impact stresses, but when used in conjunction with Kevlar or a special core you can make a composite panel that will suit your needs.
Do you have any more details you could provide to help us help you?
