Why dont they make any hoods and body panels out of carbon kevlar. From what i understand it is stronger and lighter than carbon fiber. Plus if you dont paint it, it looks awsome. A few friends of mine are making a carbon kevlar intake for our racecar.
Different composite fabrics are made for different loading. Carbon fiber/graphite actually has a higher tensile strength than kevlar for the approximately the same given weight. However on the other hand Kevlar has is more impact resistant and yes it is cheaper.
