Looks like I'll be running an X2 when I get into 1/8... since it looks like it should be out by that time.

Thanks, I know what "real" carbon-kevlar looks like. The radio tray clearly looks like interwoven carbon & kevlar in this photo, hence my asking:

Yeah, it was all the rage for a while to have all types of colored fiberglass with composite retailers; lots cheaper than proper carbon, especially for non load-bearing applications.

Oddly enough, I also think that woven carbon-kevlar went out of favor a few years ago, since it was discovered that it was far more effective to alternate-layer whole sheets of carbon fiber then kevlar (like in the pic you posted.)
