Thanks X.I worked on carbon fiber elements for formula SAE. Total cost depends on the quality and amount of used materials - carbon fiber, epoxy resin, hardener. For vacuum infusion process you will also need molds, infusion mesh, infusion spirals, peel-ply, silicone bags etc. Vacuum pump and oven/autoclave can be expensive, but they are one-off costs.
If it is your first time with carbon fiber composites, watch some tutorials on YouTube. For safety reasons, always wear latex gloves when you use epoxy resin and dust mask during cutting the material.

So what do you think? How much does it cost to produce an electromobile car chassis with carbonfiber?
We didn't use carbon fiber for chassis. We used it for external bodywork, aerodynamic devices such as front wing, rear wing, and other elemets, for example steering wheel. Some teams, which have more experience, build carbon fiber monocoque that can decrease the amount of steel.But did you folks use CF for the chassis of your SAE cars? Seems like a strange match of properties to requirements, especially for any type of volume production...

That race sounds like something needing lots of money. Wikipedia talks about funraising and corporate sponsors, but it does not give any numbers for the budgets of these teams. One thing lacking from this thread is an order-of-magnitude guess for the budget. We don't know if the original post envisions a one thousand dollar budget or one million.
