              not sure how much lighter it is, but it is a lot cooler than a plastic one.

                I dunno that i'd want it in that shape...but if you could make a contoured one like the optrel satelite i'd be all over that. I weld in tight spaces far too often to use one of those...

                      Carbon Fiber is Conductive..

                      Guys..
                      as cool looking as that is.. just be aware that carbon fiber is electricly conductive.. and may pose a shock hazard in some situations..
                      Thanks

                        You're absolutely right,that was one of the conserns with the KERS system on F1 cars in the rain as soon as the thing gave them problemsThe whole frame and every other part is made of carbon fiber on those things!

                          you caught me in the dark... did not have a clue what the KERS system was... "kinetic energy recovery system"..... took a moment to look it up.... here is a link to a quick overview..
