Project S2000 – Part 16 – Testing Track Upgrades

,

The Viper shoots cool air from the front bumper through these ducts towards the back-side of the wheels to help cool the brakes.  Sorry about the picture being out of focus!

 

The Corvette has a similar duct to the Viper.  I got this picture from Rob Robinette’s website; it’s a great resource for S2k and FD RX-7 owners.

 

With the concept in my head, it was time to design some ducts.  I enlisted the help of my buddy Tommy to do some C.A.D. to make a mock-up.  The S2000 control arm has a hole conveniently cast into it that we could use as a mounting point.

 

This is halfway through mock-up concept number two.  When designing parts, there are often many design iterations.

 

Some more cardboard added onto the mock-up.
