I'm just worried about the ambient temperature of the box to keep going up, because most of the walls are insulators. I really don't know how it would perform with hard long driving with only the heat sink and a fan, surrounded by lexan. Ben did some pretty hard driving up big hills, and the thermal shutdown never came on, so maybe it's not really a problem??? I'm not sure. Man, I like lexan as much as the next guy! Maybe people can make their own box without too much trouble, and they can pick what they like best?
