  • It’s crazy to see CF in OR racing... most types and methods suffer from the sort of impacts and attachent points usual to such abuse, and expemsive to replace. I always wondered why even bother whem UHMV, laminates, and plastic-alloys (composites) are cheaper and easier to work with, but here it is winning races. Great engineering!
