*whispers* hey @bcozican, I'll just leave these here:

😅 when your mate / aero / composite guy is keen

Can follow more updates on iface: Brandis Racing R32 Skyline or Insta: brandis_racing

 

 

 

So recently I won WA Time Attack  - Overall winner won the whole thing

Set a lap time of 57.97 sec which was only 2 tenths off the lap record for a tin top on semi's - we'll have that record soon!

To give some perspective for people using the standard V8SC best times at each track this would put us at a 1.338 at SMSP and 7th in open class last event at WTAC

Was quite a decent lead up to the event with decent testing and runs few things went wrong but nothing major, this was the first time we'd run the car on new tyres and max power so alot to learn still and alot more in the car/ driver combo

some pics from the day :

  • 2 weeks later...

was a gkteck fan (only because I couldnt source a stocko one) and stock shroud 

Ive never run a electric fan so cant comment from personal experience

 

even back when I was drifting I still ran stock fan and shroud - theory over here is nissan spent alot of money on r&d to get that stuff right maybe moreso than an after market option so we'll run with that

fans really only needed for cooler car in pits or at very low speed if you have decent ducting etc other than that its really just drag as air moving in goes faster than fan - shroud again is great and no probs as many fast cars inc. mine have done fine with it but really is drag

some ive seen have just run small electric fan that turns on via ecu at certain temps enough to keep it cooler but small enough to not hinder air movement through the rad properly

looks good, maybe a bit of trial and error if you look back in pics I had a very similar setup to that just with a panel across the top of the intercooler and worked well 

that'll be alot of direct air volume going through there at speed - maybe do the bit by bit like it did

 

also depends what the car is for etc

 

my air guide entry below is tiny but expands up over the top of the intercooler into the exact same size your have showing and I can do 5 hard laps at 25 psi circa 590 rwhp no probs

Cool cheers, yea I'm tossing up which one I should do. I've ducted the air so it goes to the rad, but it probably won't be enough.

I have run something similiar in the past to great effect for from opening in front bar right up to the rad and sealed with foam. No temp issues at big circuit and helped IATs.

With my rebuild I am going make similiar to bcozican's setup as looking to improve front end aero
