Just the material. I was not aware that they offered CF ones too. Well the kevlar ones are a little more rigid and also probably more expensive. Should be no diff in power.

One is going to be black and grey (CF), the other (CK) is going to be black and yellow. It would probably still be just as effective if it were made from plastic.

Thanks guys...... I have a ACS front spoiler carbon fiber so I may need to go with the carbon fiber to match it.

the strength is the same; they are all overlays of fiberglass (which there is nothing wrong with in this application) I would go all-CF to match what you already have.

Not true. Even though there is only a little bit of the kevlar in the carbon mix over the fiberglass TECHNICALLY it is stronger. That is why most race cars use CK instead of CF :thumbup:
