Does anyone have any connections within VIS, APC, or Erebuni, or anyone else for that matter on a real release date on the racing style carbon fiber hood. Ive called several places,and everyone just gives me the "maybe a few more months" crap. So if anyone has any contacts on a release date, give me a shout. Thanks in advance.

PS: If the hood was available through someone here, id be glad to work with you on that. peace

Thanks for the help, but i wasn't looking for a burn on being ricey, i was just looking for a release date on a hood. That is the one problem, i think, with this forum. a lot of members don't accept anything thats a little different from the norm.

So if you please, id like to know the release date on that hood if anyone could enlighten me. Thatd be great

Thats cool man. Any help would be appreciated. Wasn't trying to piss you off or anything, just a little frustrated with the lack of info on this.

I know the OEM CF hood is out but the release date on the racing style sculpted hood is still in question. As of right now, Erebuni seems to have the only Pic of it. So, thanks in advance for any assistance

Damn dude thatd be really sweet if you painted the Carbon Fiber. Im really open to new ideas on that. Would you buy the OEM or racing style CF hood? Either way, that is a good idea. Personally, for the look im going for(which is kind of a Euro/Import/ricey to some of these forum users) i would leave mine unpainted. Thats really the beauty of carbon fiber man, you can go either way. post some pics if and when you get that done. I have a feeling it would silence some of the doubts about CF hoods looking good on this forum.

Oh, and by the way, if you get the racing style, where are you gonna get it? I don't think theyve released it but if you have a line on one, give me a shout.

Thanks for the support

Thanks to all those who responded with an intelligent response to this post. I still haven't tracked down the racing style hood but some of the mindless posts ive seen bring me to an interesting point. Why are those members who are totally against a new idea even bother to waste their time responding to a forum with a smart, sarcastic answer? Just because people don't want to put on a cowl induction or Cervinis hood, some members are totally against doing something different. Just trying to make an obvious point.

In my ownership of an S10, i have come to realize(unfortunately) a little piece of bad news. The S10 is the honda civic of the small truck world. I wouldn't give mine up for anything but it forces the owner to do something original and different in order to set themselves apart from other S10s. Just my two cents.

Wow, kinda started a civil war. sorry about that. So after getting so many replies i have a couple other questions to stir the pot. One of which is in response to carbon fiber being the "norm." Being a little uneducated on this, im wondering if anyone has seen a CF hood on an S10 at a show or in your area at all?
responses to that will kind of dictate an answer to the question of CF hoods on S10s being different.

In regards to posts about performance, you are indeed correct. A CF hood would have little or no effect on your performance. My ideas on CF hoods are coming from a strictly show standpoint.

In regards to my post about S10s being compared to Honda Civics, that post was made to emphasize the fact that there are as many S10s around as there are Honda Civics. It was not made at all to put the two into the same category. Honestly, who could make that comparison anyway?

So my bottom line on hoods is that all the hoods made for S10s being cowl induction, Cervinis SS, or CF hood, they are essentially nonfunctional as performance gainers. My point was to put something new and different in a show category and i think a carbon fiber hood would achieve that. Again, all opinion
