A co-worker just asked me this question and I wasnt sure how to answer this...

If I purchase a high quality carbon fiber hood...are hood pins necessary ?

thanks,

yes...

the fact that the hood is much lighter, will increase the risk of the hood flying open, due to an insufficient latch...

hood pins shouldnt be recommended, but MANDATORY when buying any fiberglass/carbon fiber hood...

IIRC, he got them in a while ago.
He drove around for a couple days because he was having trouble with the latch.
