Carbon Fiber Hood

I searched the forums to find a thread on the topic but didn't see one, so I thought I'd ask. Do they make a carbon fiber hood for our 12's?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't seen any. But I would never put a carbon fiber hood or trunk on this car.

I think he might be saying "Should have bought something faster in the first place."

If speed is not your concern, a vinyl wrap might be your best bet.

I can't justify paying $600+ for something lighter that won't make a big difference, especially on a 138hp (110whp) 1.6 engine. I'll do stuff like intake and exhaust because I like the noise. Or coilovers because of handling. If I drove a BMW, Benz, etc or even a Genesis coupe...I may buy one if I run out of mods.

Couldn't agree more plus you'll save a lot more money.

Carbon hoods are light...but they can pose a safety issue. They don't have crumple zones. They need to be pinned on the front and even then it's not 100%.

Ever see a pic of a carbon hood in an accident and the hood is in the cabin....good way to decapitate yourself......
