Possibly made out of a PEEK HPV, Torlon, or other filled super plastic. Doubt its Glass filled Nylon 66 for the claim of 4 crashes. Bearing grade super plastics hold up to a lot of abuse, but still wont equal aluminum or steel as a wear surface.

Jason...I've got the Woodcrafts for $94.95. I like how you can change the skid plate out on those and you won't wear one of those out.

For the woodcraft, stator side cover, yes, you need the whole thing. I am snooping around at options for that side right now as well.
