    Here are some videos guys! Make sure to view these in HD (720 or 1080)! You may have to open the videos in Youtube to change the quality. Sorry for the rattle, the GoPro was attached to the sunroof which apparently rattles quite a bit. The first video is few laps through traffic in HPDE3. All data is gathered through the AEM AQ-1, including GPS track data. Notice the little sideways action I got through turn 9, see the 2nd video for a view of the same slide from the following car LOL

    I like that overlay a lot!! How did you get a brake sensor hooked up?

    Is turn 9 off camber? That would probably catch me out.... but that looks mighty fun! Only 12psi too?

    Awesome that AEM can give you all the information the TraqMate can without the cost. I didn't know that.

    I really like your driving style too, good stuff.

    Thanks! Throttle is from the TPS sensor, but "Brake" is just derived from longitudinal acceleration/deceleration. On my race car I have an actual brake pressure sensor that I'll hook in to the AQ-1.

    Thanks man! Yeah, boost was turned down, wasn't going out there to set any lap times, just for the track time and experience. The AQ-1 is really powerful for the price. Turn 9 is off camber (-2* I believe). That banked turn is 11-12* bank.

    Not to bump an old thread or anything but I've been doing some ducting on my own as well, although I built it with the stock radiator in mind and a cheap SSAC FMIC:

    Fitting.

    If I got rid of the hood latch, I could get rid of all the cuts on the top.

    Total cost was about 50-60 bucks with the sheet metal + aluminum angle + pop rivets + aluminum tape.

    The effects were dramatically better, but I don't have a full road course report due to my crappy clutch deciding to give up the ghost.
