I didn't take pictures of my exhaust shielding because it is cobbled together and isn't pretty. Suffice it to say it keeps a lot of heat out of the transmission because it is functional.

<p>I have a big sheet of some sort of metal. I'll try and see what I can do. Won't happen before Miatas@MRLS though.</p>

<p>SADfab control arms with rod ends? That would be a fun project. Tube, rod ends, welding?</p>

What is all this sensible crap going on?

Vibration dampening, heat shielding, wtf?

<p>Contrary to all the ridiculousness that goes on in my thread, my car is actually quite sensible, and in my opinion, relatively well built.</p>

Yeah, I'd hate to miss 3/4 of a track weekend I paid for with a mechanical failure.

<p>Or a $700 transmission Thats more expensive than the track day.</p><p>I like the idea of the exhaust wrap posted in the heat shield thread, but don't think it will show up in time.</p>

<p>What about just some of the sticky back heat shielding stuck to the transmission? I do have quite a bit of that laying around. That would at least do something.</p>

I'd go buy some aluminum flashing and coil the **** around as much as you can, if you are that worried. It's cheap temporary fix and works easy with rivets and tinsnips.

Well, that could work. I was imagining getting a 6 or 8" wide strip and coiling it around the exhaust, once i figured out how to make some standoffs to strap to the exhaust with hose clamps.

You know chinese yoyos right?

<p>If I can figure out heat shielding I have a bunch of scrap sheet metal at work, and a sheet metal roller. I could roll a ~3.5 diameter tube and mount it. I just don't see time for that between now and MRLS. Packing, work, prepping my car, finishing Ed's car.</p>

I dunno. I ran my car last year with no ill effects. maybe just heat shield the transmission? Let's play with it on our cars on Sunday after tooning.

I looked closer at that. And the stand-offs would be ridiculously easy to make.
Bit of C-channel, cut some slits, and slide the clamp through. Drill a hold and stick a bolt through.

I'm going to get some hose clamps at vatozone today and see what I can wrangle up. It would be easy to just roll some sheet metal and bolt it on that way. If I have clearance.
