That is cool! Are you looking to improve downforce, reduce drag, etc.. (can you tell I don't know much about aero?) with that? I mean obviously you are, but which specifically? Please let us know how testing goes!

The flat bottom helps to reduce drag and lift.

Getting closer to UTCC time!

Got the car tuned last night by Dan at Racetuned. He is a great tuner and loves our car. We installed a Turbosmart Eboost 2 for boost control as the AEM couldn't control it well at 30+ PSI. Now boost is rock solid. We did a conservative tune at 31 psi on Q16 to what felt like 580-600 whp. This is all with the stock STI cams and headers. We just got a new set of cams from Kelford, but haven't had time to install them.

Added another set of brake ducts to the front. We are now running a set of Quantum brake ducts as well as RCE. Hopefully that will be enough cooling for VIR.

Also added a naca duct in the fender to help duct cooler air to the air filer. We are going to be building a better air box tomorrow to help isolate the filter from the hot air in the engine bay.

"...what felt like 580-600 whp"

I'm guessing it was road tuned, then?

I seem to remember there being a spreadsheet on openecu.org or romraider that could "estimate" with some accuracy what the hp/tq rating would be.

Yes it was road tuned. There are ways to estimate, but we don't care that much. As long as the car goes fast that's all that matters.

For the love of Jebus, please do a "before" dyno pull when you are going to install the cams!

yes you have, and I would like to point out that ours does not have any piano hinges. Man, those were a pain to do.

but piano hinges are a great way to make easy adjustments to splitter and diffuser angles...not that I've ever made a flat bottom for a car either

just went through this whole thread, car is amazing.


one question, what fog light covers are on this car? one off pieces, or were they part of a brake cooling kit.

Awesome, any chance we'll see a production of this? Also just an idea, why not direct air from the bottom to the wheel wells to help cool the brakes? Maybe some vanes under the engine to help heat escape.

Likely no production on this unless we do it here. There's easily almost 200 man hours in that bottom.

Each rotor is being fed by two brake ducts off the fog covers and inlets in the air dam.

I'm actually surprised you all are still running a "full" exhaust out the back of the car. Past that great work! I cant wait to see it on track!!!

Also, did you run the car like this at UTCC?

we talked about just slash cutting the downpipe right under the car, but some rules state that we have to run the exhaust behind the driver.

We didn't have time to redo the exhaust so we went with what we have. heck, you'll see we don't have the diffuser on there either. I have the pieces sitting over here, but we just didn't have time to to get it together.

We also want to do barge boards, but we don't even have the material cut, and I haven't even had time to figure out all the attachment or figure out how to do the under shape.

Boards that stick out from the side skirts parallel (or with some rake) to the ground to catch the air as it rolls off the body.

barge boards/side sills/ankle cutters. Whatever you want to call them.

I'd like to tunnel them as well, but pretty sure we don't have the time for that.

Could. There is no rule mentioning height. Any ideas on how?
