I'm wondering about the practicality (costs aside) and reliability that stressed carbon fiber auto parts have. For example, I drive a 1991 toyota MR2. It's a mid engined sports car but suffers from too much weight in the rear. The rear cross member weights something like 80 lbs. Fashioning that peice out of carbon fiber would help almost every handling characteristic of the car.
so, any insights would be appreciated , thanks!
