    I need one of those. My feet were getting hot just driving around the street, can't imagine on a track.
    What's the best way to order one?
    Thanks.

    Thank you very much.

    I'll post pictures of it once it's installed. Hopefully I'll time before my trackday

    Why Specfab Raised Aluminum Floor Pans?
    Because melting 2 pairs of racing shoes a year is ridiculous.
    (This Spec Iron driver ordered a new floor pan today)

    I don't think that can be fixed, but what size is it?

    Okay, so two things here:

    1) That new GoPro 360* camera is going back. (GoPro Fusion)
    The time it takes to render video is unacceptable. Hours to render a 15 min video at medium resolution.....how long for a 30 min race video with high resolution? Nope.

    2) The ultra chiller looks good. Well made. I think this thing is going to work.
    I bought their shirt too so it's a matched set. Unfortunately we are going to have to wait for it to warm up before I know how well it functions in a race environment, but I remain optimistic.

    Stay tuned.

    I received my floor pan from Fabman and had the time to finally install it last night. This is a very well made piece.
    It took me about 2h30 to install and most part of it was to remove my seat and scrap the sound deadening stuff.

    Testing will be done this weekend a Putnam Park:)
    Here's a couple pics of the install

    These are just the prototypes, I’ll firm up the price when I see how long they take to make in volume. I expect them to be slightly higher than the s197 plates. They are quite a bit more work to produce but I’m hoping to keep the cost down with some clever manufacturing. Stay tuned.

    How the helk can you get a 4" tube snaked in there? I put the 3" ones in and it was a huge PITA trying to route them, can't imagine getting a 4" tube through on a stock front end car!

    Ford didn't leave us much room in that regard, but it can be done.
    The 4" tube is strictly for racing so the hose is considered a wear item.
