    I think the 3" hose is a wear item as well, even just for HPDE/lapping days. Tight quarters in there in a couple of spots, a lot of suspension movement in the right conditions gets stuff into the hose pretty hard. But they definitely make a difference in brake wear, well worth working through the problems for the benefit.

    Let's hope so.
    I looked at doing these when the s550 was still pretty new, but there didn't seem to be a good solution so I just let it be.
    Now that the s550 platform has found its way into so many race cars and lack of a better solution hasn't seemed to materialize, the demand has only increased.
    I get several emails a week asking for them so I finally caved.
    I used my son's street car as a model and made a mock up plate and sent it to a prominent car builder to test fit on his personal race car. He is happy with the fit and gave me the thumbs up so I've made the fixtures, and I'm sending this first set to him.
    Production will begin shortly and I'll have them in stock for anyone in need.
    Pricing to follow.

    Any idea if this is still valid? I gave it a shot and no go on the code.

    Now that you've had it for a while, thoughts compared to the typical CoolShirt system?

    Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but the word I get from other users is that it's legit. I like the compactness, light weight and attractive price point.

    New chapter coming up....car is getting about 140 pounds lighter and shedding a few hundred horse power.
    Lets see how that trade off works out. o_O

    NOOOOOOOOO. Another 3V goes the way of the dodo bird. I understand, but it's getting lonely out here. Good luck with the Coyote, and glad to see you back.

    I definitely like the form factor. Getting hot in Texas - definitely need some cooling.

    Can't seem to get the code to work. Bummer!
