I ran mine without pins for a couple years. The thought of the hood poppin' up was always in the back of my mind.

Honestly get a Aero Catch hood pin kit if you really think you need it. At the tracks I have visited I have seen speeds of 130-140+ mph and I never had an issue with my hood ever flying off my Z or my hood shaking like it was going to come apart I donít think it is needed. I have installed the Aero Catch Carbon fiber version hood pin kit before though. Installation is just time consuming really and definitely take your time and use the Password JDM backing plates they are well worth it my friend. Aero Catch hood pin installation.
