I went for a small asymmetrical bubble, to help the floodchamber. The width of this one is about 25cm, so a lot wider than yours. I'm just thinking stability in a race...

I was thinking along those lines,but i might just do a couple of different hatch designs as im thinking of going straight into moulding this and producing some fibrglass versions along with a couple of others and start making some money back of them
