Drivers are more gyroscopic anyway b/c of their heavy rims, so I don't know how much the overmold technology is really worth it for drivers to begin with.

Now if they developed a grippier, baseline plastic for the flightplate and used the same overmold plastic they might have something but I really have no idea.
