Awesome! Lap-time wise, how does it fare vs. modern rides?

Japan, or Ebay if you're very lucky (Phoenix parts are really hard to come by).

Thanks. I've been wanting to put one in the yr-4 project. They should be a match right?

Peakey, when ordering from Fibre Lite what material do/did you ask for for the top deck in the photos, the only options that I see when I log in are for a Carbon or CSC material for the top deck

Sorry,
I asked Fiber-Lyte about a top deck over a year ago but couldn't find suitable material to send them. Peakys post is over a month old and I basically asked him the same question just yesterday.
