Don't pee off the highway here in CA, Bruce... The hippies don't want you leaking on Elderberry Beatles or something, lol.
It does not seem to be a problem when they are new. They seem to have a shorter fatigue life under stress. They can handle WAY more power, but it seems that longer term high stress and harmonics weaken them. I know that in the turbine boats we use chromoly too. This is just the 'ol <.02
I trust Chris completely for steering you in the right directions.
So - unless you're going to make a habit of replacing CF-composite components, they are less than desirable in the long-term, cost-wise? I believe chromoly is similar in that way, too, but at a much longer interval, no? Please set me straight
