I am contemplating getting one. Would it be possible to get a couple more pictures? Possibly of the whole car with it on? Looks great from what I can see. Very suttle.

In another thread these comments were made:

6LITEREATER:
How high speed have you gone? It is IDENTICAL to one we designed before SEMA last year. First of all (to answer someone's question) air does NOT need to escape, it packs itself and then you're good to go (this is how splitters work).

It DOES NOT cause turbulence, it actually SPEEDS UP the air under the car causing down force on top.

So, this splitter is good and works...

HOWEVER, to the OP, did you REALLY do high speed testing? First time we bolted an IDENTICAL design up it ripped the bumper after 100.

SO, we designed frame rail diffusers to support it. Worked well but at 140 it BENT the metal diffusers AND ripped a bumper.

Make sure you've done your research or you'll be paying to replace some bumpers, we eventually scratched the design and came up with something else involving CF...

Also, what are you using to paint textured ABS??? I never found anything that was durable.

Again, I've been there and done that and just trying to save you from making the mistakes we did...

I also was liking this one as well as the one from 6litereater, now I am having second thoughts, will a front splitter cause damage to front bumper?
ACS Composites has a nice one, but again all are just attached to bottom of front fascia, just like factory GFX that had attaching issues, has anyone else heard of issues?

Looks great, I'd love to see some more pics.

We've had it over 150 mph with out issue. I run one on my car, I wouldn't sell a product I wouldn't put on my car. Air is still able to escape through the rear and unlike other splitters on the market we fasten ours with stainless steel hardware, not double sided tape.

I have one on my car, its a nice subtle touch to compliment the front end of the car (especially if you have a heritage grille).

The only gripe I have with the design, is drilling into the bottom of your front bumper, and the "pillars" aren't measured and cut for easy installation. Other than that, I think price of it is reasonable, but COULD be a little cheaper.

Great product though.

I agree mechanical fasteners are much better, they do need to release with a certain impact. Last thing you'd want is to drive over a curb, back up and rip your whole fascia off because the splitter was hardmounted (I have tested this theory and it will happen with glued on or permanent bolted on splitters)

Here is a picture of our splitter from the underside. We have a total of 11 fasteners, they will not release at high speed but will break under hard impact potentially saving your front bumper.



Forum member experiencing this, with a permament splitter he would have probably lost his bumper too ...

and finally a video of Pedder's Camaro tracking with an ACS splitter merely 40 mm from the ground.

Just went to the circuit track, did laps for about 1/2 hour, on the straight part, I went over 135mph, and NOTHING happened to the splitter or front bumper, I went under the car to check it out, and no signs of stress were found. For me, this is a great product.

Thanks
