Carbon fibre can be engineered to take the stresses involved and ceramic coatings can deal with the heat and bedplates etc to take the bearings will handle that.

I suggest it is more a case of what will it cost , rather than can it be made to work.

Even those very familiar with the technology (Ferrari for example) have yet to implement it beyond the cosmetic applications.
