Personally it's too ricey visually. I'd rather they just had the first opening.

^ This! If only had the front one with it going all the way across I would be getting one... This is basically the Scoot Hood used on the FD3S, but moulded into a Miata hood.

If you are going to have that may giant holes you might as well not have a hood. It rains hard in Florida during the summer. Have you ever washed under the hood and had the car not want to start? Maybe if I lived in the desert in socal and they weren't so stylisticly over the top...

I agree with hustler... The back two vents are too far back to be effective as there is not a big delta-P there. However, the front one is in a pretty good spot. Less rice and 2 fewer vents and it would be full of WIN (if the headlight covers were moulded in that is )!

[ puts on flame suit ]

i just had a crazy idea... would it be practical to design a hood with some a flap covering the vent? kind of like how 18 wheeler's exhaust pipes have the little caps on them?

this way when the car is parked you don't get water in there, and the idea is that these vents have negative pressure on the top so they would just open up once you're at speed.

probably not a good idea, but i'll throw it out there anyway

^ They have things called rain guards for them, but you lose some clearance on parts under them.

hustler, did you ever find a good extractor hood out there? I'm debating on having John @ Axis Power Racing get creative with one for myself...

And that's why it's in a group buy at CR.net!

It's fiberglass so the real hipsters over there will have to give it a faux rusty metal finish.
