I haven't had a lot to do with the carbon side of things yet (apart from cutting and grinding some), to be honest it looks like a pain in the ass. From what I've picked up from the guys you would usually make a mold off the part either in carbon or fibreglass then make the part of that. For somethin...

mounted the oil cooler today, just have to get 2 -10 90s to curve around the radiator then i can plumb it in to my sandwich plate. does any one know if it would be better to have the oil feed go to the top of the cooler and drain back from the bottom or will it not matter. i have a thermostat plate ...

I thought there needed to be a bit of flex and movement on the radiator and intecooler mounting to avoid cracking when hitting bumps or ripple strips. They are quite fragile. Normally a bit of rubber works or mount on something that has a bit of flex. Looks like we are both doing similar things (we...

here you can see why aliepress is cheep, the end tanks are slightly wonky but with the bumper on you cant tell. i still need to pressure test the rad and intercooler to make sure they dont leak

made up the bottom inter cooler bracket today the piping should clear the chassis rails fine. don't worry about the tape at the top, i might run a tube between the rails and weld some tabs to mount the top of the cooler to. i'm not sure if i should put the oil cooler on the same bar or on the outsid...
