I am a fan of carbon fiber product. So, last 3 days, i decided to replace my front hood with carbon fiber hood which made by Racecraft. The quality is superb and other than that, i love the design. Pictures below :)
the ride looks meaner!
Apart from improving the cosmetics look of a car, carbon fiber hood also reduces overall weight of a car. It reduces weight on the front wheels and this can improve balance of the vehicle when driving. It is because the front wheels are the wheels which we steer the car with. It means that when there is heavy load on them, the ability to steer will compromise. Reducing the load on the front wheel will enhance the ability to steer. Cool huh?
Other than that, carbon fiber are actually strong and durable eventhough when you hold it, you will feel or think that this stuff is fragile or not strong, which is not true at all :P
Besides that, carbon fiber can withstands heat better than metals. Since I chose the hood with vents, air flow from outside will help to keep the engine cool. A cooler engine is much more efficient isn’t it?
