Well if you can't say anything nice, my parents said... so I'll leave it at that...

Good thing it's only clay and it can be redone easily. I'd humbly suggest that an actual wing; not a Nascar-type "lip" is going to set off this body better, by breaking up the reverse-point that the ass-end of the car has. 99% of the pics of the Dale Spoiler (which everyone seems enamored with) actually looks very similar to this spoiler, just not as "thick" on the underside... I was hoping for a different direction.

I like this front lip over the GM kit, as it doesn't stick out 3 inches in front of the car. HOWEVER, I probably don't need to say much about that rear spoiler...

Have to hold judgement til it is finished, but somehow Corvette Summer came immediately to mind.

GM makes a high wing spoiler if that's your thing. Have you seen it?

The Dove Tail spoiler is more vertical this one here is thick and horizontal, I think they look very different... similar in some areas, but different in most.

Lingenfelter, we love you, but you've got to change that hood. No one likes it, and that's going to make sales impossible. Make the slits match the front angle please. The spoiler is probably extremely functional, but it would be profitable to also introduce a dovetail or ducktail spoiler simply because that is the one that people want to buy the most. I would like to see the front lip smoother if possible. The reason I'm concerned is that the GM option has a similar edge, and this represents an opportunity to beat OEM. It looks good, but others have pointed out that this might hinder your sales. Lastly, I want to encourage you to keep up the good work! You're company is pretty much amazing in every category, and we're lucky to have you working on our Camaros.

I would like to see a real working cowl hood, the rear spoiler looks like the bow of a boat. Tone it down a bit

First I wanna say Thanks for the info and pics, gotta agree with Blur, the hood openings need to more closely match the factory facia slit. The chin spoiler and sides are awesome. Not feeling the rear spoiler, this is just my opinion now. Please dont get angry. How about a second generation style dovetail spoiler? That is a piece Id like to see someone make!

Overall effect is terrible

Take a perfectly good clean design and add too many apertures, angles and vents

I also dont understand the obsession with "functional" hood scoops - when superchargers seem to be doing pretty nicely without them.

Not everyone has a supercharger. Functional hoodscoops let the cold air in. Cold air = more power. Get the obsession?

Reserving judgement until anything near final starts being shown.

Maybe a few more angles on some of this stuff too, n'ect ce pas?
