3M Protective Film Clear Bra Test
With all the talk of paint protection, and with so many great products out there, not as many car nuts have ever seen or heard of the "clear bra" or protective film. However, there are plenty of articles out there talking about it, and how to install it. Now the reader can see first hand what the fuss is about. In this article we look at the 3M Protective Film for the automotive industry. We talk about how to care for it, options to install it, and how durable it is. Plenty of pictures and videos, and off course we test durabilty by shooting it with an air pistol to see if it shreds by being hit at 260+ MPH by a pellet.

Heat Wrap Install
While we had the car apart for a while, we went ahead and purchased the Thermo-Tec aluminized tape and header wrap that you see below. We had always wondered if this stuff helped to keep the heat in the exhaust system and out of the intake system and for the relatively low cost it seemed like now would be a good time to experiment.

Fabrication of Radiator Ducting
One of the final steps we took to help cool the DSM engine was the fabrication and installation of ducting around the intercooler. This duct work would make sure all the air entering the "big mouth" bumper opening would be directed through the IC core first and then through to the radiator.

Oil Cooler Install
Since the Eclipse was having some problems with overheating, as most DSM's do when a front mount IC is placed in front of the AC heat exchanger which is placed in front of the radiator, we decided to upgrade the factory water/oil cooler to a more efficient better cooling air/oil setup.

SR Racing: The Anatomy of a Racing Specialty Shop
First, I think to really begin to understand the difference between SR Racing and a traditional shop, we need to understand the difference between a technician and an engineer. A technician is a master of installation and typical fabrication. An engineer can take a given set of parameters and design an optimized system for these parameters. Well what does that mean?

What it takes: A Day in the Life of a Car Designer (Part 1)
Transportation design seems to be the major endeavor for the automotive youth in this day in time. People see shows on TV depicting people building choppers, cars, and other custom vehicles with complete ease. Then these same viewers think they can do the same. Quite contrary to first impression, it is a tremendous task to build a custom auto using existing plans, much less build one from scratch.
