How does that big opening in your front grill stop water getting into the engine bay? I know what your saying, there would be a lot of water, but vehicles aren't that delicate in good shape.

^radiator blocks a good chunk of water. Even hood scoops have some type of water catch and drainage

I thinking more of parking in those torrential downpours that we get nowadays.

Why would that hurt anything? My car has a big vent in the middle of the hood, any collected water steams sometimes but that's it.

Thanks. I hate the look of a completely exposed carbon hood unless maybe it is on a black Supra lol

No issues at all.

The hood was designed in a way that water comes off the hood when it is driven fast because the air is being released from underneath. There is a lip at the bottom of each of the louver(hard to capture in the photos) to help catch some water. Having a water proof hood would defeat the purpose of the hood. I got the hood because I also had an issue of the hood lifting up almost an inch at speed on the road course. With this hood, the problem is effectively eliminated. The hood's primary function is to reduce lift on the front end and extract hot air from the engine bay. This exact hood is used in the Pirreli World Challenge series.

Picked up some Whiteline lowering springs, 16mm custom made titanium spacers and all the 5w50 oil needed for my oil change on the RS... and I told myself I wouldn’t modify it
