I,ve just been reading Neckcheese,s blog aboint the Whitepoint replica chassis he produces and a mention of Grp H plates came up[to promote movement of body to chassis]. i was under the illusion that the carbon fibre H plates used on the german chassis was to stiffen it up. Would someone put me right and explain how they work. john

Carbon H plates have nothing to do with chassis stiffening, they are the interface between the chassis and the body. As such they should be free to float with the body and because they are higher than the chassis plate, carbon is an ideal material to lower the CG. Carbon is also strong, so when the car hits a wall it needs to be able to resist the impact (though the foam body mounts do a good job of softening the blow on Schoeler/Plafit style chassis).
