ps- Do you think with those hood scoops, if you made a air filter behind the scoops with it going directly to the carb would it work/be a good idea?
The air cleaner sits right there behind the opening. There was a "ram air" factory option, but they're extremely rare, and extremely expensive. I don't know that it would be worth much power to seal it off anyhow. I really need to get some insulation on that fuel line though.

Carl,don't damage that air filter!! It looks like R2C might be out of business. Weren't that easy to deal with when they were in business. Great filters,though.

Sometimes you find things you're not looking for. New slotted rotors and high temp pads on the way. Thinking a parachute might be in order too.

It doesn't look like it cracked at the drilled holes, could be casting issue.

Yeah, it's a hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks somebody, somewhere is tired of her sh#t.

It's definitely a heat issue. These are factory rotors, machined down as far as they'll go, and I've abused the hell out of them hauling it down from 150 mph to make the runway turnoff, and getting them hot at road course track day events.
