Kart Mould design and manufacture

Hi,

I'm designing the body and mold for an electric go-kart and I am planning to make the body out of fibreglass or carbon fibre. To make the mold I was going to laser cut some MDF profiles of the shape and fill it in with polyurethane or polystyrene as a base. This is my first time doing this so I was wondering if anyone had any tips that would help.

 

Cheers,

Yeah, thanks, for the competition it's also required to have a roll cage, protective cell and bumpers on all sides. It is also required that the driver is enclosed by the body work. I'm not sure what the best way to design and produce it would be.
