Not sure, got lazy after the last track day. They worked though. I'm thinking with a new master (929) and ducting they should do pretty well.

Whatever happened with the 3d printed brake duct inlets?

Madjak got busy, I didn't have free printing anymore. And the shapes were so complex that I didn't know how to modify them. They also weren't solidworks files.

It turns out its really hard to explain in text how you want a shape changed.

The files are shared publicly. Check the thread for them.

Honestly you would have the best chance printing them. They use a stupid amount of support on our old dimension, so ideally they need to be layed up in a way that doesn't need support.

Thermocouple Amplifiers Analog Devices CDIP 14 AD595CQ IC | eBay

Do we think this is an actual AD chip, or a knockoff.

I've been pondering this in my head for a bit. Lexan spoiler ideal.

Is there such thing as a curved piano hinge? something that could curve around the edge of the trunk? I did some random searching and nothing came up.

I want my attachment to be a bit simpler than the blackbird version, not sure how I like the 2 piece design, though I may lose some adjustability because of it.

Those do look a bit dubious, the mask isn't lasered in focus, looks like they try and do it by hand with how big it all is.

1pc AD595CQ from Ad CDIP 14 Good Quality from Adi | eBay

That looks better, more like the datasheet photo. They might be dicks and send you the same thing as what you linked though. You'd have a solid case to get your money back easy, though.

But that picture literally tells me nothing. It could be stolen off the AD website for all I know lol.

That's what I mean, if you order from a seller with a lifted photo it's legitimately not as described. You'll get your money back easy, if they send you the shady looking ones. If you order the shady looking ones, well, that's kinda on you if they end up being knockoffs. Ebay probably still give you money back though...

But it's not stolen off the AD website, far as I can tell.

I need to cut some cardboard out. I'm having trouble wraping my head around how a lexan splitter with a curved bottom would move when the angle changes.

Lexan is more flexible than sexy metal.

Assuming you are talking about sheet, yes its more flexible in every plane EXCEPT the one you are trying to figure out how to flex.
