Paul, your feelings on the ramair heat extractor vents match mine PERFECTLY. At freeway speeds, you already have enough heat control and air flow.
Sitting in the staging lanes, these will vent heat very well. I know this because I see the heatwaves DAILY coming out of them on the Zilla.
I have a second purpose for them, however. I get front end lift at high speeds (over 135mph), and I suspect a 'cushion' of high-pressure under the front end. The vents should give relief for this problem at the Salt Flats next summer.
John has a spoiler now, but it needs paint. I left him with nearly everything he needs for it.
John made the mistake of leaving his car with me while he went to see his Dad at the hospital (Ed is fine now, and at home being well cared for......or pestered by Kim). I washed the outside of his car as well. Just to make sure I didn't get any degreaser on the paint.
It had no hood when I did the Engine and Car.
The Simons'* are excellent hosts. Even when there'* illness over the holidays with a houseguest. Bo and Spud had a blast together, and John and I got alot done. I applaud him for taking the chance on the vent install.
Ed and Kim are (as usual) the greatest. Kayla is too. First time I've met the big sister. She'* a sweety. John was his usual
but I've learned to tolerate him.
This was a GREAT weekend. We'll do it again once or twice before WCBF06. We had a good weekend with John down here earlier this month, too.
