  1. We strap hot dogs onto it during the race so we'll have something to eat after...

  2. That's so you don't drop tools and they hit the radiator. At least that's my reason for it on my car....

  4. Need more Varsha on the live broadcast. I'm sure he has some great stories.

  5. I have reasonably good rad ducting at the front and it all seems to work well, no problem with water temp with the stock rad despite more power. High speed stability is also good, so avoiding two issues that Fieros usually have. Directing the air up and over works better than jamming it under, at least for now. I'll be adding an air dam and splitter before it hits the track again. And no, the M-B V12 under that radiator is not going into the Fiero despite the potentially wonderful sounds.

  7. I always look at it like flow in a pipe. If you make the pipe smaller, the fluid will flow faster and have a lower pressure. This is only true if there is a way for the air to escape and meet back with itself. There is definitely a point where the amount of air being crammed in can't escape fast enough and the pressure will build and the flow will slow. If you have fast movement of fluid, it will have a lower pressure. I like to think of it like the molecules only have sooo much energy. They can either exert force (pressure) or go fast. Can't

  8. I think that's the front end of a Fiero... Oops, sorry, wrong colour.

  9. Yes, fast moving is good however it is fast moving due to the low pressure. A splitter is more effective the closer it is to the ground as it allows less air under the car. One doesn't want to add air under the car as that raises the pressure. That is the idea behind splitters and side skirts as they keep the air out. High pressure above the car body and low pressure below it is what gives downforce. I can't find it now but there is a pic of a C5 Corvette, what one considers a pretty aerodynamic car, going through one of the speed traps in the Silver State Challenge or similar wit

  10. We th a Malibu without inner fenders. Never had an issue n the rain. The bigger issue is the gap at the front of the door on some cars allowing the tire to spray water all over the driver. Plus, opr gets in there and makes the car a mess. It's probably not great for aero, but I don't actually know what the flow looks like through that area.
