It is not real carbon fiber hood is a fiberglass hood wrapped in carbon fiber. It says it in the description. That is why it is cheaper then all the others.

Does the fact it have mostly fiberglass in it make it less likely to wrap from heat?

When the hoods warp it isn't because of the material used it is due to crapy manufacturing caused by air bubbles in between the laminates (or layers), where the air heats up it expands. I am going to just wrap my stock hood in carbon fiber fabric for the appearance because lets face it unless you have major performance mods loosing the weight of the hood isn't going to affect it much. Also I am working on a custom hood venting design.

I know its not a full carbon hood. I'm not worried about the weight savings. Just love carbon fiber hoods. Thanks for that picture! I haven't been on here in a while so I just saw all the replies. Thanks guys!
