SSG is fiberglass over the carbon fiber so it's a little weaker due to thin layers of fiberglass top/bottom instead of carbon fiber.

Some companies make better graphite than others. I don't think graphite is graphite is graphite. Just check the flex between different double deck chassis cars and you'll see what I mean.

Well I do know that the graphite chassis is not real graphite .It's make of plastic and fiber glass mixed together..The real graphite come with numbers of layer and flat and some are round..
Different between other graphite is the graphite layer direction the what make the truth strength...
