It's worth trying out, especially as the summer comes soon.  For the time
being I'll abstain from redirecting the flow from the entire radiator fan
and instead think a little smaller and just try to reduce the MC
temperatures by a few degrees.  I think I could fabricate an effective heat
shield and duct pretty cheaply and quickly that would keep the worst of the
heat away from the MC and maybe also the ABS control unit, without
sacrificing any cooling efficiency through the radiator.

Add another thing to the list of items on the "project" car.  :)

Most of all, I hope this thread has given some advance warning to Listers.
If you experience your brakes coming on, especially as the weather warms up,
this thread should help you out.
