Anyone have a sense of how tricky the design of roof flaps is?
wondering if I might incorporate them into my MR2. It would be nice
the shiny side up if the car spun at speed. I'm pretty ignorant
and how they work. I assume they must be positioned exactly right
roofline to both stay shut during forward motion and open readily as
angle gets to the critical point. Thoughts?
Benn, go to landracing.com and search -- there's been a good bit of
discussion on roof flaps. Also consider going to Sumner Patterson's
site (www.purplesagetradingpost.com) and start clicking around. I
think he has some roof flap-specific information on there, too.
