or a underdrive pulley
In fact, there is. I visited Pacific Raceways today with the Alfa Club. It was cool and clear in the a.m. and actually fairly warm in the afternoon. I ran 3 solid sessions (first session was cut short because an instructor put his new (to-him) former World Speed Touring SRT-4 into a ditch during warmup). During the other 3 completed 25 minute sessions, I experienced zero fade. Having said that, I ALSO switched to Carbotech XP10 pads up front prior to this event. This setup combination was golden. I was pushing the car pretty hard in the last two sessions chasing/passing/running away from various cars. It was a hoot. The oil temps ran up to 226 despite the oil cooler. However, my brakes held up like never before throughout. I never felt a bit of fade and I was laying into them pretty good in the last session while chasing down a Vette. It was fun.PARKINGLOT said:any updates?
Incredibly busy as he rolls into race and HPDE season. This year Colin is acting as crew chief supporting a 5-car IMSA Porsche 997 GT3 Cup Car team at, I think, 5-to-9 races (don't remember), plus several other local racers (DP, SPU M3, more Cup cars, etc.). So, you'll need a little patience on this kind of thing. Reaching him by phone is sometimes easier, certainly more immediate when he picks up.PARKINGLOT said:so I emailed Cantrell Motorsports a little while ago, but haven't heard back. Is it a busy place maybe? What's the best way to get more info about this?
Yes its a Porsche part.tallguy2.3 said:So its a porsche part # or what? Where exactly did you get yours Jefe?
Yes of course. 1/4" bolts & nuts, welded into 1/2" ID tube.bri said:Did you have to make the rods you used to mount them?
Well, at least there are some parts that make that attachment a little cleaner with that Mustang option. However, the reason I went away from the ducts was that it seemed like there was too much stuff under the SVTF (especially mine) to do that cleanly. The fin solution seemed less invasive. I reckon it's a little bit of a tradeoff between being able to put the air right where you want it vs. total volume of air and simplicity of design/implementation. Those fins pump alot of air through there.sleeperlove said:When considering both however that you can do the porsche pieces for <$50 its probably still somewhat pricey and probably harder to make fit well.
