Sealing it would've done nothing to prevent that...

maybe, but it was not crack. It was torn between the different layers.

I've raced numerous TC's and F1's over the years with carbon fiber chassis and have never glued the edges on a single one. I have also never cracked, delaminated, splintered, shredded, or torn an edge on a singe piece. I think its pointless, makes a mess, and adds weight. Quality composite work makes this pointless, but maybe the QC on the composites werent as good some years ago?

Oh yeah...I crash plenty too
