air duct

i decided to make the air duct larger. the scoop on the 260 is comical, that huge scoop in the front narrowed down to that tiny hole in the back its like a parachute. i understand why they did it production wise. i wonder if the increased drag can be justified, is there that much hp gain? anyway i figure ill just increase the duct size lower the fpm velocity and static pressure in that area

If you do it right the future of Lotus parts could go through you!! in 5 years Lotus parts will be hard to come by and making a whole car in Carbon is everyone's dream.. ;) :D

not really looking to sell parts, its true my co. could make hundreds of these parts in one day. we have a big frp facility, im just having fun making the car my son wants. and teaching him the ropes. anyone can do what we do, maybe not in that volume. its very easy i encourage every to try it, its fun
What you do is very impressive :bow:

I've been playing with the thought of trying to do my own CF just so I can say I tried it.
One of my coworkers is big into model glider plane fabrication and does a lot of CF work with complex surfaces like wings and such. I think he currently holds the European speed record with one of his planes at far beyond 300mph. He offered to give me a hand and help me with the basics and material to play with. Now I just need to find the time to start...

I just think it is very cool if you can do stuff like this by yourself :up:
