a wing made of fiberglass, FRP (plastic reinforded fiberglass) or urethane? I heard the FRP ones are a bit heavier but are strong. urethane can warp and fiberglass alone can crack. I know there are CF ones out there but most of those are just fiberglass wrapped in CF. Any thoughts?

urethane should be the best in my opinion.. would be lighter, and less resistant to cracking..

plain fiberglass will most likely crack, but is much cheaper than the other options..

frp is what most body kits (good quality ones) are made of.. it is fiberglass reinforced plastic.. so you get some flex and alot of stiffness.. good resistance to cracking.

carbon fiber is expensive.. but stong... you rarely see a pure cf kit.. but they exist

Like the NSX with the custom CF body.  That was sweet.

Yeah that thing was sweet!

For a wing I wouldnt really worry about it cracking too much. If it were a front lip or something like that I would go urethane. I just ordered my veilside v1 lip and I went urethane.
