Enjoy your nerd juice + the 'betes.

Seriously though, after everything I've read and seen about the hood riser cooling idea I still don't buy it. I can't recall any of the seasoned racers here on mt.net that use them let alone any sponsored or professional race cars which see this as a viable cooling solution. I have seen a great deal of ricers subscribe to this bullshit though. I don't think that anyone is arguing that air does not enter or will not exit with the hood risers. Sure smoke will exit, but don't expect that to be the be all end all test of the overall mechanics of this system. Overall you increase the under hood pressures which reduces the air temps but also reduces flow through the heat exchangers.

notice the innermost string, at only 40mph it was being sucked in, at 65+ both strings being pulled into the engine bay. that was simply with the hood gasket pulled off.

Oh sure. Ruin all the fun by bringing in proof and logic!

I like how these people with ugly hood lift thingies fail to understand that although temperatures lower under the hood with the vent, its because the air getting sucked-in from there is colder than the air that's been through the radiator.

i don't know on the track - like i said i've never had any cooling issues either way. but it absolutely makes a difference in daily driving conditions. and until recently it was my only car so it sees alot more street miles in s. texas heat than track miles. i've already had to replace many plastic clips/connectors and wiring due to underhood heat, and been broke down because of it, which sucks. so if it helps at all, it's worth it to me. personally, i hate the way it looks. i would much rather have a custom vented hood. but i can only spend 500-600 per month.
which isn't alot when you consider the cost of a trackday, gas, replacement parts like brake pads, oil, filter's, plugs, tires, gaskets, blah,blah,blah. dammit, i try not to think about that ****! lol........ see what you did!

That's just ricer bullshit, you need to keep the air conditioning and route it outside to cool the air surrounding your car, keeping in car temps low.

It's not their fault people are stupid enough to buy them, its money in their pocket and thats the name of the game.
dude i had a friend that ordered parts from him. took over a month and no response. finally said he wanted a refund and bill said he couldn't refund the money because he didn't have it and said would give him back the money in installments. WTF? How do you not have the money to refund something that he didn't order? BULLSHIT! my friend still hasn't got all his money back yet.

in the city, working at a store 6 days a week, and rarely going on

horny I thought I'd explode, I pulled over to give the once over
to a hooker. She came up to the door of my company van and smiled
and asked what I was looking for. When I realized she was a he I
laughed and apologized for making a mistake. She reached in the car
and grabbed hold of my **** thru my pants and told me that I hadn't
made a mistake. I tried to resist, but she got in the van anyway.
She said "Look, we don't have to if you don't want to, but could
you give me a ride home?" So I gave her a ride somewhere up in the
hills and as we pulled over to stop she pulled me out of the driver's
seat and led me to the back of the van. A latino with satiny skin,
she kissed my neck and then pulled my throbbing **** out of my pants...
then she pulled my hand under her dress to her own throbbing ****,
which I started to stroke and suck as she sucked mine. Her **** was
long and thin and slippery as it went in and out of my lips, with
my own **** thick and pulsating between hers. We both exploded in
a sea of ***, gasping for breath under the sexual torrent. She refused
to take any money for me, thanking me for the ride and sending me
on my merry way. I've always had a fondness for tv's ever since then,
but have yet to find one was pretty as her!

Sorry to bring back this piece of **** thread, but the more I think about it, this is one of the most epic thread-bombings I have ever witnessed.

Hustler, you are truly a god among men.

I don't believe this for a second. When I had issues with my Works Bell hub adapter I contacted Bill nearly weekly bothering the **** out of him I'm sure and he responded to every email within a day and was never rude. That went on for nearly 2 months until WB started shipping hubs from Japan again.
