We can try for the big eyes look as well.... They ought to be pretty big at 215 or so...
cut a hole in the roof right above the roll cage. mount the gopro directly to the roll cage through the roof.

I have a few pics of the rear diffuser skirting.... This will keep us from catching a lot of air with the diffuser since the trash can rear mufflers were supposed to perform this function....

Justin and I built the forward piece as well, but I don't have any finished pics of it yet as we were waiting for the paint to dry to do the final install...
what material did you use to make the underbody paneling?

Another ten or so degrees getting the oil temps down to around 190 or so would be good...
thats awesome.

Thanks brother,

Ahhhhhh, no on the hole in the roof. It would lose the sleeper effect.... The paneling is sheet aluminum. Probably 3/32 thick...

Looking good!!
I'll certainly post up pics of the completed install and report back on any positive/negative effect we find...
