Boss hood stripes straining my eyes

To start with I do have a slight degree of motion sickness.

However I have been noticing something that I am more aware of it now, the 2013 Boss hood stripes are straining my eyes, whenever I lower my head level, just to test this theory, I feel better.
This theory was further confirmed when I drove a black 2012 Boss at Boss track attack last Tuesday. My eyes were very comfortable.

I will getting Tiger racing hood anyway and may be paint it matte black

Any of you guys had the same observation?
 
No issue here, sorry to hear your situation.
I play a lot of games (no TV watching) and many games can make people feel sick, but the vast majority of people have no issue. I'm assuming this situation is similar.

Possible
 
My seat is all the way down from day one, but my torso is tall.
It is a hopeless case lol
When I put a matte black tiger racing hood I will report back

13's have REFLECTIVE stripes...

12's do not..

2 SAE HP
 
If you're getting a Tiger hood and have issues with motion sickness, make sure the shop that does it blocks the hell out of the hood to make it straight, otherwise those small waves in the hood will probably mess with you also.

Lol I was thinking about that too.

You I think it is the 95 F hot weather with a full closed helmet on in a fast moving car on a race track, that is what happened

That has to be terrible, I would definitely get and open face helmet.

Good observation, the 12's don't have that power robbing reflective stuff, hence the 2 extra HP they make. At the wheels. ;D

Negative. Matte black absorbs heat and thus robs HP. Reflective does just that...and reflects. Thus cooler under the hood and motor and more HP. 2013 Reflective stripes SAE +2HP. 2012 matte black SAE -2HP. 2012 white stripes are exempt. :p
 
have you considered taking the vinyls on the hood off , or even purchasing a GT hood without vinyls (expensive fix tho since itll require paint)?
