It seems that the Idea is to difficult to fit into the regulated areas lchecked the volumes and an air cooled fined heat sink will be crammed into to tight a volume to be effective. however ithinkafinned heat sink can go at the flanks of the bow of the car. Cooling fluid will flow through this heat sink block of metal. The sink can act as ballast as well. This is a throw back to the gordon Murray concept from the 80's?
it´s obviously the right material to do that job -so it´s a no brainer not to use ballast as a heat sink.FOR any application you would or could need a heat sink.
I´m amazed nobody had this already ..You can obviously help your electronic components big time -has you cut off the big spikes completely (Start-Pits)from damaging delicate components.Yes it maybe running a tad hotter at times but the thermal shocks are a lot less which is a main issue with early failure especially considering the vibrations present.
I gues we are on something here and let´s see when THIS is showing up on the grid .Formula 1 claims to be the pinnacle and fast reacting-there must be at least one guy per team wading through the web looking for things that can be used?
The heat from the track ? most of the time the track temps are not that high .So there is a lack of delta t maybe on the very hot races trying to keep the batt in a 70 something range and track temp over 50 .Blacktop will soften and breakup at around 80-85°C on its own so you would not be able to race on a track 80°Chot I´d think.
But there is a delta and the car IS moving ,so it will cool.
