Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

As much as I love the sound of the megaphones, unfortunately they wont make the 90 Db noise limit at most tracks, so I invested in a couple of stainless mufflers,* still sounds tough but a lot quieter and deeper tone, and they have a removable silencer that can be fitted to quieten them down a tad more.



hopefully they will keep the powers that be happy.
cheers John

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Question for the masses, front wheel arch vents, do I really need them or not, as i'd hate to cut a hole it the top of the guards if they're not all that necessary.

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

I think the question do you need them for the look, the performance advantage is so minimal it wouldn't be noticed for the track time you do. Me ? I'm about the detail for authentic appearance so I would do it. That's my 2 cents worth.

Cheers Leon.

Hi John,

I have no empirical data on whether they work or not because I haven't run without them, but I do know my front brakes get pretty hot when racing. I've made a few running changes to keep front brake temperature under control. I've got Wilwood 6 pots on 355 x 32 rotors front and back with equal bias and same master cylinders, cooling air picked up from 4 inch ducts on the chin spoiler (hard to see in the second photo) applied directly to the centre of the rotor. So basically anything I can do to evacuate hot air from that area I would do. Put them in I reckon.

Cheers, Andrew

For my penny`s worth, put them in. The detail just adds more to the car and any clearance of heat from the front is important. On a hot day with the radiator also throwing heat at you its good to allow it to escape.
Looking good...wait till you have some colour then you will really get excited.
Cheers
Russell

90db! Wow! That is tough! Is that static or drive-by?

I turned up to a trackday once thinking it was a 105db (static) day but the limit that day was 98db. doh! That was a struggle! No way I could make 90db.

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Was sitting out on the patio last night with a coffe trying to figure out how to get a 3" brake ducting hose to slip fit onto a 5" dia D shaped inlet in the nose, then I had a brain wave, so out to the shed I sneaked , found some left over hi density foam I had and cut 3 blocks and glued them together and stuck them in the vice over night.
then this morning armed with one of the wifes prize steak knives I proceeded to cut it into shape to fit in the D shaped opening on the nose then tapered it down to a 3" dia round to take the ducting tube.
so my mold looked like this.


so I then fitted that into the opening from the back wrapped it in cling wrap the glassed over the whole thing including the D shaped opening, then when it was almost off I removed it and sat it outside in the sun to go off, gave it a clean up and a coat of paint an walla we have one slide on brake duct adapter
so heres the opening in the nose



and here's the adapter sitting in place




and now I can use a cut down of the same mold to make two ducts to fit on the upright to feed the rotor.
some days it just all falls into place, not often just some days lol
cheers John
