VenomEclipse99 said:Yea, use hood pins man. Why risk damaging a $400+ hood and your car for a measly $30? When I bought my VIS XGT C/F hood from NOPI they sold me a set of Sparco hood pins for $10. Trust me, buy the pins and be safe!!
you know i ordered my hood from vis and they flat out told me that i would be a dumbass to trust a 2 piece hood with a oem latch even theirs... if you risk it your being a dumbasss and risking alot of peoples lives on the road at the same time...TaLoNBLiNGBLiNG said:I've been going 2 months without hoodpins. I have them still in the wrapper in my room. It usually depends on the brand name and quality of the hood itself. VIS makes damn good OEM latches. The hood bounces on the freeway, but right where the windshield is because the fact that it only weighs 15lbs or so. Eventually I will be putting the hoodpins on, but for now the hood is holding up extremely good. Where I got my cf hood from, they wouldn't sell me the hood unless I agreed to purchase hood pins along with it.

The hood flies off because of air passing over it, not under it.91RSlaser said:why are cf hoods so prone to flying off, compared w/ stock? is there really THAT much difference? does the lighter weight make it want to fly off when even a small amount of air gets under it?
ummm long story short... massive scoring of the cylinder walls... i did it when i was still nt, i drilled the intake manifold and didnt get all the chips out... I THINK.... but i knoticed it when i had the head up and was turboing. I just kinda let it slide but when i was spitting liquid out the exhaust i desided to do a compression test here is what i got.
