What does covering the grill with Plexiglas do for speed? Does it reduce drag? How do you cool the radiator? Does the efan keep it cool enough?

here are pics...this is strictly a track only mod because of heat, covering the grill eliminates the 'parachute' effect thus help in increasing mph times at the track...

Ray, my initial idea was to drill holes where all the holes of the grill would have been, but it was too labor intensive to switch them out so I just used the 3 center holes for mounting using 1.25" length bolts, fender washers, rubber furniture feet (to use as a soft washer under fender washer)...and also used clips that attach to grill shell that acts as nuts for the bolts..
