Damn you guys!!! I was just gonna cut holes or vents into my stock engine cover but I saw this thread.. so off to ft86speed factory. Damn need 250$ for free shipping so might as well get the carbon hood struts which o have been meaning to get to remove that ugly hood prop. Lets hope this helps with engine temps because after adding the supercharger the engine bay is a furnace...

Another fun day at Ridge Motorsport Park. Didn't beat my personal best. Im wrestling with getting my heel-toe and heavy braking to be consistent. Still doing 2:05-2:06s with indy 500 firehawk with about 8 track days on them. First day with the beatrush under-panel. temps were down 2-3 c from what I remember. Nothing scientific though.

That's disappointing to hear temps did not go down with the beatrush under panel..

Doesn't mean that it isn't more effectively cooling the headers. When installing the underpanel I noticed heat damage to the Styrofoam around the headers since I have an aftermarket headers that is coated.

Had a bunch of cash back sitting on my CC so I bought myself a little treat!

DAMD 2017+ brz steering wheel!
Just installed and drove around the block. Initial impressions is install is very easy. The smaller wheel size is nice and the flat bottom feels a lot different then the OEM steering wheel. So far I like it the looks are great and I love the strip at 12. Once I take it out of a track day Ill have a better idea if the smaller diameter is better for the track.(which I think is the general consensus around the web.) The feel of the leather is softer then OEM and the perforation is nice.

Packaging:



Unboxed:


Sizing between OEM and DAMD. DAMD is smaller and has flat bottom.
