    After doing a search i didnt see any threads about this topic. it was being dicussed on cobaltss.net because one of the members is a dealer and she was telling people why their hoods were taking so long.

  2. Oh darn, sport compact tuners will have to wait i guess.
     
  3. Invest in CF companies!!

  8. That's because Ferrari and Pagani are using-up all their precious CF, so the tuner's can't get their special CF hoods.
     
  9. Now we can move on to those awesome clear plastic hoodz!
     
  10. This has been going on for a little over a year. I had a real hard time even buying carbon, let alone at a reasonable price.
     
  11. I wonder if rowing shells will get more expensive. There's about as much CF in an eight as there is in any Xonda. Other than normal inflation adjusted price increases, I haven't noticed much of an increase.

    NOTA BENE: None of you care.
     
  12. its a little more complex than that. carbon fibre can be built to a massive variety of specifications/attributes, both in construction and in the baking process giving it properties to suit an equally massive variety of different needs for it.
