vr exec wagon
Is it just me or does anyone elses vr wagon seem to fry your feet because the foot well area is so hot.
has extractors fitted thought this may be something to do with it
or does it need more or some firewall insulation

If there is hot air blowing down over your feet I'd agree with Krisp, but if the heat is coming up from the floor then I'd say your extractors/down pipe is a bit close to the body and/or needs a shield.

If anything pacemakers should be cooler seeing as how they come ceramic coated, unless you had the wrong ones installed and/or had no heat shielding. I have pacies and can see no difference.
