Carbon Fiber bumper

Is there a reason why there is no Carbon Fiber Bumper available from GPM for the Ferrari.

For that matter, I reckon that for all the F1 front wings that have snapped, they should make a Carbon Fiber front wing. It seems stupid, that, they make a CF rear wing, and out of all the F1's around, I know of only one rear wing damage from launching the car off a great height.

However the front wings are very vulnerable even with the bumper.

Run a xspeed motor with a 8 tooth pinion gear at full throttle for 3 seconds, accidentally collide with a wall and surely you will lose the front wing.

I too broke my front wing the first day I had it. Instead of glue though, I used bondo to repair it and it is stronger now than new. I have accidentally gone head on full steam into wood barriers and it holds up fine. I used the bondo very sparingly so as to not add much weight.

Although carbon fiber is very strong and light weight... its not realy good on impacts, its made of many many tiny threads, and each impact would frey and split and chip it away... but it could be done... I say just trace yer cars front end ona flat credit card, then exagerate the line, cut it out put 2 screw holes in it and put it on the front of yer car , paint it black even....

I would imagine they'll come out with one soon, it's just each front end is slightly different so they have to redesign.
