because with a CF hood its much more likly at high speeds that somthing with go in the hood and then BAMMM!!!!!! your hood just smashed you winshield and you dead. With hood pins, this dosnt happen.

those are the exact same hood pins i have ready to go on my cf hood.... to answer the other guys question, coming from a dsm standpoint, i have seen WAY too many hoods fly up because the stock hood latch couldnt hold the hood down... why risk your windshield and hood?
