Interesting project for a 96 cobra

A guy on another forum is making every body panel for his 96 cobra out of hand laid carbon fiber... he does it his self OMG lol he estimates when its done it will be about 2300lbs. EVERY PANEL, not just fenders and what not but every panel.

If you're gonna go that far, why worry with paint. He can't drive that every day, no way.

It's gonna be insanely fast though.

i'd paint it for two reasons:

-looks better
-only 20 pounds, thats not gonna make that big of a difference.

i had put a stereo (2 10's) in my car which was more than 20lbs and raced my friend. two bone stock (mine was stock at the time) 04 autos. and we ran DEAD EVEN. i had 25k miles and he like 4k miles at the time.

plus, if the dude is fat, he could lose 15-20lbs and balance everything out.

if not, like i said, its only 20lbs he'll be running 9.8888888888888888889 instead of a 9.8888888888888888888

weight is tricky, its where it is on the car and also if its rotational vs stationary weight. Every 120lbs is a tenth~ when its dead weight, or there about. So thats not very much to be picky about, but if you spend all that money and time it may be worth it. The car is an autox car. Some parts of the car will be stronger with CF on it than the thin metal such as the roof.
