I changed my oil today and noticed two ducts missing. Is there a source for these? I'm guessing they are not that common.

From the number of people who lose them, I would normally think the side of the highway is littered with one about every 50 feet.

I got lucky. My Corvette-driving buddy picked up the NACA duct after it got punched out by a cone. One tab was broken, but I just siliconed the duct back in.

I replaced two about a year ago. At that time I ran a small bead of black silicone around them and they have not budged since. It is enough to hold the little tabs where they need to be so it just stays.

I launched off a hill about 3 or 4 feet and I guess the duct had enough mud, tar, gravel, whatever stuck to it that it didn't flitter around and my buddy in his GTR behind me said it looked like I was doing a low altitude bombing run. That would of been priceless video!!!

I have since added aero so no more non powered flight. Well, maybe just a little here and there ;)
