- Model: 2008+ Lancer Carbon Fiber Hood
- Manufactured by: Carbon Trix
The best heat-exchanging Lancer hood on the market today. This hood is real Carbon Fiber. Perfect fitment and finish are key to every Carbontrix product. The functional vents remove hot air and add cool air for better performance. Designed to be turbo friendly, we designed this hood with function in mind. Please keep in mind you do not need a turbo in order to reap the benefits of having a well-vented lightweight hood. Perfect OEM replacement bolt right on and latches right down.
What is Carbon Fiber ?
Carbon fiber is a super strong material that's also extremely lightweight. Engineers and designers love it because it's five times as strong as steel, two times as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less. Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon -- even thinner than human hair. The strands can be twisted together, like yarn. The yarns can be woven together, like cloth. To make carbon fiber take on a permanent shape, it can be laid over a mold, then coated with a stiff resin or plastic
The properties of carbon fibers, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are relatively expensive when compared to similar fibers, such as glass fibers or plastic fibers.
Carbon fibers are usually combined with other materials to form a composite. When combined with a plastic resin and wound or molded it forms carbon fiber reinforced plastic (often referred to as carbon fiber) which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, and is extremely rigid although somewhat brittle. However, carbon fibers are also composed with other materials, such as with graphite to form carbon-carbon composites, which have a very high heat tolerance.
Our online shipping calculator may not accurately be able to generate a quote based on your address, and size of the package. Although our carbon fiber and fiberglass products are lightweight, we package them carefully in large boxes. This drives up the overall weight, and size of the package (dimensional weight).We may need to contact you for the correct shipping price, as shipping charges on certain items may vary. If you have any question or concerns about shipping, feel free to contact us ahead of time 562.906.0080 10-5pm PST, or email.
