I will play with it some this week. My suspension is still off the car and it's on jack stands in my garage so I can take some pictures and measure and maybe try to come up with something. I know dbyrd has ducts with his Mporium undertray but deansbimmer had to custom fabricate a solution to fit the ducts as well.
I am thinking I cut the ducts and somehow shove some of the brake ducting tubing in the gap on top of the tray. Or maybe use some of these https://new.minimania.com/part/NMB40...Mini-Cooper--S somewhere on the back. Idk

Take a look at Pinnacle Motorsports alu undertray. It's basically the mPorium (which I have) with cutouts for a GT4 lip. Instead of trying to sell/ship mine and rebuy the Pinnacle I'll be looking to make what I already have work by mimicking what Pinnacle has done.

I also feel the GT4 lip has the brake ducts facing to much into the wheel well, and in turn it is harder to route the tubing without having it run into the tire. But maybe it is fine as well.

That undertray does look pretty useful with ducts.

In my limited experience with racetracks, I can say that changes in elevation are what makes a circuit great.

Agreed, flat tracks get old fast.

I was loving the elevation changes.

I live 40 minutes from NOLA which is dead flat. I have driven more laps in the last 2 years at VIR and Road Atlanta which are 14 and 9 hours from the house, respectively, because they have so much more character and are so much more fun to drive.

Kimi's start was the best part

Agree with the elevation changes, but wanted to hear more about NOLA. The first WRL race of 2021 is there in January, and we're planning on running it.

215/$280 USD seems like a great price for the Pinnacle undertray. What's the drawback?
