    Default Challenge Grill

    Ok, so unlike most i really don't like the look of a challenge grill on the back of a red 360. But i am going to be doing more track days etc and in terms of getting the heat out at the back, is it really that much better with a challenge grill?

    I mean i did nearly 3 weeks in France and Italy driving long distances (at speed ) and driving nearly everyday with no issues.

    Should i bother for the sake of maybe a track day per month ???

    surely it can't do any harm! but i think it would be advisable, really depends on how many track days you're going to do and how hard you're going to drive the car on them.

    I think you will be fine Chris . My view is to spend money on tuition before mods , at any level.

    I found it useful on city driving as it's reduces heat (with Capristo) when there is no additional airflow to cool engine bay, but I don't think it will be necessary for track driving.

    Friend of mine who's an ex racing driver is going back to doing some tuition for his old boss and told me he can easily get my half a day per month teaching me how to actually drive on the track for nowt.

    But i really don't want to spend 1k on something i don't like the look of on my car if its not needed

    Much better things to do with a 1k

    Yeah, dont bother Stimo if you dont like the looks.


    Also, in terms of cost, you should be able to pick one up for nearly half that and fitting it yourself is reasonably easy.
