As nowadays any serious prototype race series (single seater formulas, LMP) uses torsion bars it begs the question whether someone is developing composite torsion bars (could be made with more custom dependence of spring rate on displacement).
Still, could be good for non-prototype racing.

the weight advanatge tells me it´s already in use.
