  • Feather carbon

    I was looking for a lightened cowl panel and found this Feather Carbon. I already saw their reviews, really horrible to customers and plenty of customers got screwed by them. I took it risk anyways because PayPal would cover it for me if Iím screwed by them.

    but NOT!!!! I received my CF cowl panel yesterday.

    I love how itís fitting perfect and sooooo light like zero pounds!

    next one Iím gonna buy a CF hood from him!


    it is my first CF panel and itís so fancy!

              It's not the 7 pounds, it's the wind resistance of the wipers and how they effect your 60 foot times

                It is 7 lbs. I weighed whole wipers system, motor, plastic vent cowl panel and steel cowl panel.

                CF cowl panel weighed 0. I tried to weigh it and it came up nothing so probably 1 oz.

                yeah I agreed about the wind and flowing without air hitting wipers.

                Lose weight does make it faster. Look at NHRA pro drag cars, they all have light weight stuffs. My weight scale in my syclone keep lose and lose. Radiator support all alumnium, alumnium driveshaft, deleted AC, deleted power steering system to manual steering gearbox, coilovers and etc etc.

                and Iím only 140 lbs as well. LMAO

                  I'm not saying you're wrong about the weight, I'm saying reducing the weight isn't reducing the run time, even though I always skip lunch and take a good dump, if I'm going to the races. I don't think it helps but it can't hurt.

                        They had that CF cowl panel on the shelf which I bought for. Iím not sure if they still have more. They have fiberglass as well.

                        CF cowl panel cost me $220 shipped to me.
