Carbon bumper and canards are finished.

So its been a while since I updated here. The shop got busy, which is good, but I haven't had much time to do anything to my own car. I missed nationals, and the last few events in the North East region. I was able to get the front bumper cover on and very loosely mocked up to the car. So don't mind the gaps being a little wonky, as once its properly mounted it will line up nice. Now that the bumper is done, I can get to work on the splitter. And yes, the splitter is allowed to be bigger than the lip that is already part of the bumper. Thats where some of the really trick stuff will happen. Bumper is only 9lbs so I'm happy with the weight for the size of it. The super flimsy fiberglass one I used to make the mold was 16 if I remember right. Heading into the "off season" I hope to get the splitter, diffusor, and side skirts done. I want to do some suspension work as well, and then hopefully get some power in this thing!

The other kinda cool thing is that I was offered the position as the NASA NE American Iron Director. So now I HAVE to make sure the car is ready for every event.

Amazing work!! I've been following this on your facebook page also. Question for you, the heat extractor on your hood, do you offer a smaller size? Would like one just like that, but just a little more narrow for a Fox-Body cowl hood.

Sorry. Thats the only size I can produce with my mold. I have seen people put them on smaller cowl hoods, but you have to really trim down the side flanges and shift it back a little to where the hood is wider. Unfortunately its not a very straight forward install on a cowl.

If there was enough of an interest, would you be interested in producing a new mold? I really like how it looks compared to anything else I have seen.

Yes, if there was an interest. Something smaller and maybe a little less deep may be popular.

Wow, great work! Question on the opening on where the headlight would be, is that for a ram air setup ? If it is do you think it helps on the long straights? I was thinking of doing something similar on my fox.

Thats a good question. I never did a before and aftter with my solo to see if I pick anything up on a long straight as I made the intake scoop before I had it. The whole intake/filter housing is sealed to the headlight duct. My guess is its probably almost immeasurable, but still of a benefit. The benefits of "ram air" have been tested many times. I think the best benefit is that its definitely getting cool air directly to the filter, and using up a very very small amount of frontal area.

Absolutely!! I also think you have the perfect test mule for the job.



I'll put some feelers on the inter-web and see if there is some interest. Also, what's a number of interested parties that you would feel comfortable with in order to make this a reality? And if it helps, my intentions are to run in the OUSCI and CAM challenges for 2016. An "AJ Hartman Racing" logo would look good on the side of my car.

FWIW, I took the dimensions you posted on the vent and tried to apply them to my stock 86 Fox hood. Turns out that the vent would interfere with my MM STB. We just couldn't find a way to mount your vent that looked good and didn't interfere with something. Thus, a smaller, shallower vent would fit a Fox hood better given the typical mods these cars generally employ.

Ultimately, I went with slatted vents but even these nearly interfered with the STB too. Pic.
