Call the various makers and ask for the weight of their parts. 47 lbs does seem quite heavy. Granted it's a different tail, but the fiberglass full size RSR tail I have on my 911 is nowhere near 47 lbs. More like 10-15, I'd guess.

When you call, ask if they make race weight fiberglass. It'll be fewer layers of glass and accordingly lighter. With carbon, what I've heard (and seen myself) is that some makers put a layer or two of carbon and back it up with fiberglass anyway. So sometimes you're paying a lot more for little benefit.
