Carbon fiber provides many benefits over composite material in r/c applications. Typically the material is used to provide a stiff and rigid platform, but is also used to reduce weight and enhance looks. Carbon fiber also excels in hot weather conditions as it maintains it's stiffness. Likewise, composite material typically experiences an increase in flexibility in hot weather conditions which results in a decrease in suspension performance.
