At the front of the wheel well is a piece of clear polycarbonate to keep rocks and rubber from the engine bay. Right smack in the middle of the polycarbonate is what appears to be an infrared tire temp sensor. It looks a bit close to the tire to be a multi-channel however. Notice the contour details in the front diffuser.
Here is the owner, Chris Eaton on the right, explaining to me how they got the grain silo load cell to work. A big part of why I'm able to share these details and pictures on MotoIQ is because Chris has been very open about everything. He's the one supplying all of the pictures that don't say “Jeff Naeyaert” at the bottom left. Thanks Chris! I figure he doesn't have too much too worry about since building a car of this level is a difficult feat even putting the necessary budget aside. I don't think Chris is too worried about anybody pinching his team's ideas either. And if you can build a car of this level from these pictures and articles, bring the car to WTAC because Chris would love to compete against you!
Behind each of the front wheels is this dramatic duct to help air exit the wheel well. Or perhaps it just looks dramatic because of the gold tape.
On the LH side of the car, the duct is partially filled with an exhaust tube. The exhaust is supported by a lightweight bracket (with dimple die holes) and mounted to a rubber isolation mount.
Each gullwing door has indentations that double as ducts to allow air to exit the front wheel wells. The Jiffy-tite quick release fittings are to fill fluids into their corresponding systems. The top one is to fill the cooling system and the lower one to fill the oil system. By pressurizing the fillers with low pressure, the mechanics can quickly fill the system without taking apart the car or making a potential mess. There are third and fourth Jiffy-tites for the diffs also. How's that for well thought out?
