Default Ventilation in nitro bodies

I have a HPI porsche body for a Kyosho Mark II Spider nitro sedan and was wondering about ventillation holes.

I did cut a 40mm hole in the front windshield and one on the side for the exhaust tip.

Do I need to cut out a side window for more venting ? Will this mess up any possible admission to races because of the side vent ?

Any recommendations ?

there's no need to cut your side windows. In fact any air flow, if any through side windows would be minimal. Unless you power slide through the whole race cutting your windows won't be beneficial.

Thank's guys !

Should I cut a whole in the rear or leave everything as is with a 40mm whole just in the front windshield ?

You should cut a hole in the rear window to allow the heat to escape out the back, and clean cool air to pass through. It should be at least the same size as the front hole. Some guys even cut it out larger, almost the entire rear windshield...

Well, it would be silly to make it illegal. If you can let air in you have to provide an outlet of escape otherwise it's useless.
