Fan for VoneR? is it necessary? when you put up a fan inside the body shell, it is just circulating the hot air inside the body. I really doubt the efficiency. I prefer to cut out a big hole on the wind shield.

Yes, true to a certain extend... some hot air do circulate inside the body. But we must also remember that our bodies are open all round, moreover, we talking about moving the car in excess of 50km/h...so, not very much of an issue.

Another point is that the air movement inside the body is always in a turbulent state, and the air temperature can never reach the temperature of the heat sink, so it still conducts heat away quite effectively...

My main point of not cutting a large hole for the front is because of the streamline effect of the car on the whole... with the new low CG fuel tank from kawahara for V One R, we can now top up fuel from the side too...

Just my 2 cents worth...might not be feasible after all...hahaha...
