Ok the radiator is in the front, but I am relocating it to the sides (twin sport bike radiators) so I can completley close the front

Which then leads me to the question, I can also leave the opening and duct all that air towards vents that would be on the belly pan. So the air would have a straighter path. But I dont know whats best;
- Block it off and let air do its thing (flow over or under it)
- Direct it towards the bottom, which might possibly disrupt the laminar airflow going under or it might be better since the car would "Artificially" have less frontal area...


Btw the car has a FULL under belly pan.
