|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.|
