The lower ducts actually get a lot of flow for their size since the air from the front bumper wants to go in there. I'm gonna try them, if they don't work I move upwards.

I found these, unfortunately the others got deleted...


Notice how much extra is on the front, so no clamp is needed. This allows for easy install and uninstall of the ducts.


A little bit of rubbing, just testing the limits; 100% of it happened while I was driving around in the paddock. Also, notice the bracket I made with some folded aluminum sheeting(i think its actually called flash @ lowes), cut with tin snips. A few explanations of why it is this way: 2 silver screws keep the aluminum from rotating; the fold allow it to be more rigid, and it allows the tab on the duct itself to go in between the sheets so the bolt doesn't smash the sh*t out of the plastic tab. The bracket stays on the car at all times(those are self tapping screws and the bolts I had lying around). The aluminum flash provided a light, cheap solution that wouldn't cost a fortune to screw up.


This picture just shows the concept before the bracket was made/installed.

Thanks for the photos mate, I think i will try these on my car too although my inlets are going to be angled down a little so they come out under the front bumper kind of like this



I am making a splitter for the front and the brake duct openings will be just above it kind of like this

Car looks good although I cant see any of the Duct pics... which is the reason why I checked out the journal. But it is always great to check out a journal where a guy is really using the car. I just ordered my Ducts and am going to be installing this weekend.

Any chance you can rehost the brake duct pics?
