Default Thick weave carbon fiber

A new racer at my home track reciently made a carbon fiber chassis for his Xray T1. Interistingly enough the graphite he chose to use is a very thick weave type, with the graphite strands approximately .25 inches wide. He made the chassis and top deck out of 2.5 mm stock of this material and to my amazement the car felt as stiff as my old T1 with the XRC. So, my question is, has anyone ever herd of this type of carbon fiber and used it on RC related applications? He purchased the CF from a company that distributes materials to aerospace manufacturers.
