[Es2] things that tend to break on es2's at the track

I've got both sides of the hood vented, one for the rad, the other for the
heat buildup around the turbo.

Trouble is when you're not moving, there's not enough airflow to keep things

The last rallyX I ran it got so hot you couldn't rest your hand on the shift
knob! Needless to say the cabin was equally hot.

On the 90 NA the hood gets so hot you can burn your hand if you touch it.
