Actually, if one were to have the inner fender liners removed for wheel clearance, the "Z3" fenders would indeed help vent excess air from behind the wheel...same with the lower vent behind the wheel on that car. But, it's obvious that that car nevers sees speeds to warrant such stuff. If one were to look in that area with the fender liners removed, you'd see what I am talking about. But like I said....such things would probably be OK on a car that sees nothing but track time.

Rear wing reminds me of the Supra. I'm sure that's what he was going for.


80% of that is hideous. I'm actually not that offended by the hood though.

EDIT: I took another look. The way the hood ties into the nose is horrible. Stock hood with vents like those wouldn't be bad though.

Id like to run it on a track vs a stock car of the same year with the same tires, and compare lap times

The rooms spinning, from all the gayness.... Seriously, all the facepalms in the world couldn't do justice to how i feel toward that car.

EDIT: whats the deal with the weather striping in the front bumper?

I was thinking the hood looked more like this, but nowhere near the same level of awesomeness of course

In fact if not for the pop-up lights I'll bet he/she would have placed the 'extractors' farther forward to better mimic the Enzo

I fail at proper typing. I meant to say Non-functional venting. Any venting that accomplishes stuff is OK with me no matter how hideous if the car is a track oriented machine.

I wonder if there is really any merit to the idea of just getting a typical NA into a wind-tunnel with some smoke and youtubing it. Like 15 minutes in there tops at 75MPH. I wonder what that costs. Do a car with an extractor hood, a diffuser, brake ducts, and a hardtop.

Don't worry man, I knew what you meant when I saw "on-functional".....I knew you missed a "n" in there.

Two questions. How do you get in the trunk and where are the fuzzy dice for the rearview?

slap some Xidas on it, 15x9's/nt-01, and a 250whp motor and I'll gladly track that pos.
