    Can't teach a dead dog tricks! The profile looks like you put a brick on the top of the front of the car. It surely doesn't help the car aerodynamically. The only thing is saving 8 pounds - not worth it. The car is already a road tank ( which I accept and enjoy very much) - 8 pounds isn't going to help that much. Even if it does cool the motor, which I have to question, it sure looks like a bad dream! As for the price - greed will kill you.

    Re: D3 Motorsport Vented Hood w/IMAGES

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay in response. We are looking into possibly offering this hood in a finish other than C/F. When we set out to design this hood we didnt want any compromise in quality, fit, or finish. Therefore we wanted to manufacturer it with the highest quality of materials. The C/F materials allow us to decrease material requirements typically needed to increase strength.

    Please let us know if there are any questions. If you need additional information regarding the release of an alternative finished hood, please contact us directly.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    I've been emailing with Greg off and on about this hood for a while. Would if be possible keep the louvers but lower the front of the cowl? I have no plans to get a bigger blower, but i would love to let the engine vent.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately we have already invested into the mold for this hood. It would be extremely cost prohibitive to make such changes to the mold to accommodate this request. If you have someone that can do something from a custom standpoint, you might be able to have them make the modifications you so desire.

    Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,

    Yea i figured there was a.heft price for the mold. I havent seen one of these hoods in person before, so it would probably be fine. Do you have an idea of when these would be available in a composite material?
