Re: New hood available from MTI Racing

That's a nice looking hood! How much does CF weigh and how much lighter is it than the stock hood?

Wow, that's outstanding, and unique.
Will you be at Petit LeMans next month? Anxious to see it.

We're not sure if we will be there or not. We are still looking into having a booth.

Just weighed the hoods to get a comparison vs the stock hood.

Factory C6 hood--27lbs

Composite Fiberglass hood (unpainted)--24.5lbs

Carbon fiber hood--22.5lbs

Thanks for taking the time to weigh them.

Not much of a weight savings but definetely much nicer looking than stock with the ability to extract heat!

Re: New hood available from MTI Racing

Here are a few photos of the production version of our hood. Notice the mesh protecting the louver openings as well as the rain gutters on the bottom of the carbon fiber hood.

Re: New hood available from MTI Racing

I like it because it is different from the existing ones. Are they planning on making a C5 version?

We will have a booth at Petit Le Mans and we will have room for one car. You will be able to see the hood there.
