There are resins and pre-pregs that achieve material properties very close to what you can get with an autoclave, simply by using pressure bladders and ambient pressure ovens. Much lower costs, shorter cycle times, and much less hassle with the lay-ups and tooling.
yes they may get close but they still dont give the same results at the end of the day close is never close enough F1 is about 100% max in performance and effiency
and also the molds may only be used for 1 race not for producings 100/1000 parts
it isnt a production line
