Save weight……use carbon parts!!

by on Oct.09, 2010, under Garage

It was obvious that there would be al lot of “black gold” on our race car. Showoff Imports is the biggest European dealer of Seibon carbon therefore of course some nice products to show our customers. The hood already was carbon fibre but it was painted, we chose a new one. To save some weight on the back end the trunk should be replaced, carbon, what else! Probably the top peace of our carbon mania, the doors. They look great in real life, you have to trust me on that. Hard to capture on a photo but we sure tried.

Glass is also very heavy on a car, we replaced all the windows, except the front one (for now), with polycarbonate ones. They are made beautifully, just like the oem windows, just a hell of a lot lighter!

On the trunk we needed a carbon fibre wing, we took one from megan racing, in fact, the biggest one available. In our opinion it isn’t really high enough to get the down force we need on the back of the car. We designed a set of new brackets to support the wing. A custom set of course.
