I tried carbon fiber trailing arms back in the day on an Edge sled. I snapped a LOT of them to the point they started sending me reinforced versions that then started damaging the mounting points. I would be concerned about the strength of CF rails. CF doesn't bend, it breaks. I would be very concerned given my past experience.

False , the nextech rails are tough, I stabbed my track on my Pro-RMK, twisted the whole skid , broke some of my titanium components, but rails were straight after I got the pressure of the track twisting them.

Carbon fiber body panels are weak but nextech carbon rails are strong.

The carbon fibre of back in the day is completely different than cf today.
