How about the clutch, axles, and traction control?
For the charge cooling radiator up front, any plans for anything to protect it? I know the A/C evaporator up there is prone to pinhole punctures.
It almost feels like a "why wouldn't you do this?" - So just wondering where the downsides might be.
Axles and TC are fine and/or unchanged. The NA clutch is quite good as found in racing. the failures of those clutches tend to be result of one or more of no dead pedal resulting in riding the clutch, fluid boiling and/or bad master cylinders resulting incomplete disengagement... That said, until we have adequate testing on our manual car, I can't say how well the NA clutch will hold. If it's not happy (our car has 35K miles on it), the 400 clutches are strong enough and very cheap... Again, we'll see...
Rocks. It's a low slung sports car and that sort of things comes with the terratory as it does with every other car of a similar nature. There are threads on about every sports car forum with similar complaints. the more you put screens in front of the heat exchangers, the more you block air. Best solution is stay 300 feet back from traffic. if someone wants to add additional screening, they'll need to do their own science project on what it does to cooling.
I had to post again. I really want to see a picture of the engine through the hatch with it closed. I keep feeling like asking how much and how long...
it's a teaser thread. Enjoy the show. those details will come to fruition when it's ready to launch. Hopefully you can see the substantial progress from this. more work to do... Our aim is in the next 60 days... Cost, looking at the market now for the something similar in Elise land, you have the REV 400 kit at about 8 grand. This system is more complex (more spendy), bigger blower (also more spendy), and has a smaller market... so it will be more than that obviously.
