Hey guys,

Check out these fender vents that rob from alpha logic is running on his car. Love them. They look really cool on the n attack fenders too.

Anyone seen these anywhere before?

There are a few options out there but i would go with the ones from Import Racing in Germany. Alexander Wutzke was one of the first guys to make these and I know they are functional if they’re coming from his shop.

quite a few knockoff ones out there. 

 

noticed the the IR ones are mounted on top vs the side of the fender like the Nismo ones... not sure if that makes much of a difference.

 

are you supposed to run these with wheel well liners or without?

Good question.  I'd imagine you can just cut a few slots into the fender liners right underneath the vents and that'd let them work well enough.

 

Another option is just to go with these I guess: https://www.evasivem...a4aAt69EALw_wcBor maybe someone has a line on OEM fenders...

 

The paint on my fenders is about to start to chip due to my wider front rims rubbing, so that option is probably one I'll go down a bit later.

Oh and to the question about on top vs on the side.. on top would I think work better with the n-attack lips as it'll kick the air up and over the side mirrors, meaning less drag and more downforce from the kick.  Side vents would probably be better if you don't have the n-attack fenders.

 

Just a guess though.

I have the top one and while it looks better IMHO, look where that is, it doesn't directly connect to the wheel well, at least when I looked (mine still aren't installed)

 

He did show a video where heat is vented, but the side one probably relieves more pressure...

There definitely needs to be some airflow through the liners. It’s easy to cut an opening in the liner and then reinstall it. I would bet 95% of people installing these are not modifying the liners 😂

elf, are you running with liners or without? I remember you took some stuff off becauseracecar. Maybe that was the brake dust shield I'm thinking of.

I still have the liners. Our new fiberglass fenders wouldn’t survive the rock assault from our barren desert racetracks. I did vent the front liners to help the trans and oil coolers a bit. I still need to vent the rear liners so that the fender vents behind the tire can do their job.

And yes, I removed the brake dust shields about 94 years ago. It’s funny - the outside of my calipers turned brown like everyones, but the inside has remained copper.
