Hate to be THAT guy but running drag radials isnt stock. Just a pet peeve of mine. Theres no shame in saying that the car ran with no air filters on drag radials but dont call it stock when it isnt.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought that.

This is a great looking piece, nicely done! I can tell a lot of R&D went into this :)

Can you speak a little more to the construction? Was the carbon sheet prepreg, or a wet layup? Also, how many layers (any cores?) and was it cured in an autoclave? Lastly, are there integral metal sleeves in the bolt holes? It is always nice to have a little metal standing "proud" above the carbon to keep from torquing the bolts into the carbon.
This is a solid prepreg  laminate with no core. The shape and size of the design would be difficult to use any type of core. I can't comment on the laminate thickness and bolt holes inserts but I'd take an educated guess to say that it varies in thickness depending on what part of the plenum you're looking at and there would be inserts because threaded holes in composite laminates don't last very long.

It looks like it was made using closed bladder molding with female tool. Any other way would require really expensive metal matched tooling.

Is the matrix used with the carbon fiber thermoplastic or thermoset?
More than likely it's a thermoset prepreg epoxy resin. Most thermoplastics are used in random oriented fabrics.

NAGTROC has a black card!?!? Do you get a GTR as a benefit?

That's because he's 16 hahaha
Unless his parents are seriously loaded I doubt he's carrying a bc. I remember when I was 16 I'd troll car forums and lie my ass off about everything, wait I still do that.
