The plastic composite ones are stronger, graphite has less flew which means it will snap b4 it bends.

well...if that's the case....they bend before they break, honestly, I don't want any flex in my car. you don't see any top driver running plastic on their car. and if they knew something we didn't....well you know rumors, the world would know about it the next day and the MF3, all plastic kit would debut. I'd keep the graphite stuff and work on other things.

Graphite's weighs less then Composite Plastic, so that's the reason why we use Graphite instead of Plastic.
