There is not enough air in the world to cool you down at Phunderhill in July.

So these vent windows will seal enough for a daily driver?

I have a laser cutter and no ac, may I have files?

Glad I am not the only one (33). I always wondered why YouTube car reviews (C Harris, EVO, Smoking Tire, Xcar) always complain about DD suspension on racecars. If you are buying a 100k+ racecar, i bet the suspension is better than my teins... So why complain? Racecar!


That compressor looks nice. I wish i had a big stand up.

I've only used a cool shirt system once, when I was racing the BMW at LeMons, but it is awesome. They aren't all *that* expensive, I'm definitely putting one in the car before the next summer Thunderhill day.

Hell, you can DIY a cool shirt system for around a hundred bucks if you really want to go cheap. A cooler, a bilge pump, an old t-shirt, some tubing and dry-break fittings and you're basically done.
