Thanks for the feedback guys. I will keep these concerns in mind throughout upcoming tests.
A few points.
The kingpins are defiantly user replaceable...they just slide into the ingratiated base plate like they would slide into a standard base plate. Actually they are easier to replace then many kingpins due to the fact that the base plate does not need to be removed from the deck to remove the kingpin from this design.
This deck will be compression molded. That means a resin saturated core and Carbon Fiber is compressed in a heated steel or aluminum mold. The pressure that is applied to the mold ensures that there is not an excessive amount of resin in the product. This makes a light, strong, consistent product. Resin Transfer Molding is another good process. It involves putting the base material into the mold and then forcing the resin into the mold.
The bracket is actually pretty thick. It is just tapered. And it bolts on the inside (side towards timing pulley). Here is a pictures of it from a different angle.
I will have some updated project pictures shortly.
