More new bodykit parts (Leg-Motorsports)

I haven't had time to post this, but Leg Motorsports has come out with front and rear fenders (rear over fenders looks like)

here is the link:

Also they have a new lip spoiler, scroll down a bit.

You call that a spoiler? I call that a bump.

Not feeling the fenders. I do not see a new lip spoiler though.

That hood looks kind of sweet. Will that reduce underhood temps? I don't read Japanese.

I would think so while at speed. The fresh air through the duct and exits toward the rear of the hood should draw the heat out of the engine bay.



These vents may help a little while not in motion. The heat can escape through these vents.

Not true, unless that is what the hood pressure map will show.

This is typical of cars: (green is high pressure, red is low pressure) (only referring to the bumper/hood/windshield here, ignore the convertible aspect of it)


Air will enter a vent placed in the high pressure zone of a car at speed. A vent placed in the low pressure zone will extract air from the engine bay at speed.

Example from the Evo, which are properly placed:


Additionally, when you think about the high underhood pressure from air entering the front of the car and stacking up in the engine bay as it won't flow through the engine bay and out the rear of the engine bay smoothly, you can start thinking about pressure differentials between the top side of a hood and the bottom side at the same point. One method that track/race cars use for improving cooling is to place hood vents as far forward as possible (in the point of lowest above-hood pressure), that is still behind the radiator (which has high underhood pressure), to improve how well air will flow through the radiator.


This is why rear hood spacers to raise the rear of the hood are stupid, because that is a point of high air pressure stacking against the windshield, and at best it does nothing, at worse it is actually reducing cooling efficiency at speed by increasing the pressure inside the engine bay, plus shoveling more air under the car.


You have tons of air getting into the engine bay already through the radiator, any holes in the hood should only be used to get that air out.



Edit:
Here is another pressure map from what looks like an FC that shows a bit more clearly what the pressure is like.


And another one from a Volvo:

IIRC the ideal place for venting the hood for the rx8 was back towards the indent in the hood which is where Leg placed theirs. As for the duct it seems like it would work but that is all I'm saying.

You need to show maps for the rx8 and not other cars.

Back on point with LEG, though.... does anyone know of an option other than Japan Parts for purchasing their parts? $1400 shipping for a $450 rear diffuser is ridiculous. I'd love to work with a vendor if somebody knows one, but I may go the route of direct email with LEG if that fails. Knight Sports has been amazing about that in providing my grill, and they ship by EMS.

Shipping for 2 parts I was going to order was only ~$300.. Where are you getting $1400?

What are you getting? The size of the box really impacts shipping costs.

Shipping my LegSport front lip was not cheap.

JapanParts used to offer shipping through Greyhound once it arrives stateside. This extended the delivery time but saves quite a bit.

There is another company that ships parts from Japan but do not know anything that has used them. I will try to find the site.

I found the other site. No idea if there will be any savings though. Let me know if you are interested.

Yeah, I don't necessarily trust Greyhound either, for that matter...but it would be better than $1400, I'm sure. As for the question of where I'm getting that from...it's by the shipping calculator right on their site. I also don't really like the idea of not being able to choose my shipping provider when I'm spending hundreds of dollars...DHL has been horrible, and EMS has been excellent with my various parts sent from Japan so far. Not to mention, EMS shipping time is exceptionally fast.

Definitely interested in what other options are available. Thank you for taking the time to look it up. I appreciate it.

The SII version of that lip/diffuser is what I'm looking to buy, to compliment the R3 bumper and side skirts....seems like this is going to be like pulling teeth, though. It might benefit me most to contact LEG directly. I'll post up if I end up going that route, to let you all know who to talk to and whatnot.

Here you go. Their site is not very well organized though.

Since you have a S2 I think this is the direct link to what you are looking for: http://autostyle-usa.com/se3p/LEG41411342C01

Super digging the fenders and rear flares!

Also, you guys can try RHDJapan.com instead of Japanparts. Much better pricing and service with the former and if you don't see an item on their site, they can get it for you.

"Over" fenders look similar size to the panspeed which are only a few mm wider than oem.
That rear is on my list of wants though <3
