actually they are equally strong in shear tests a lot of places us don't use it because of the extra time that it takes to manufactor makes is slightly more expensive and its a little more difficult to get a hold of in large quantities. Luckily for me i have already found the suppliers that have them both for the same price.

I LOVE the 2x2 design for CF.... it just looks so much better to me.

Here are a few things I've been wanting to get my hands on in CF, but haven't been able to find......

-Side Mirrors (OEM style)
-Rear hatch/Trunk trim
-Grill (I know, I know, but I can dream)
-Engine cover (like mazda's but in CF and made for OUR FOCI'S!!!)
-Front Lip
-Door Handles

Basically anything that's plastic on the car. My car is black, so CF looks REAL good with it, but I don't know how CF hatch/trunk trim would look on a car that's NOT black.....

But anyways, Those are my ideas. You could always do hoods and fenders of course, but then you'd be competing with the BIG boys over at Seibon and Carbon Creations.

Name choices.... hmmmmm...... how about..... Carbondrive..... or Carbon Research...... I don't know.... anything really. Just think of something.
