INPUT NEEDED:
Is anyone in a area that experiences average winter temps of less than 10 degrees f? If so go to your local weather station website and get me the relative humidity average over the 2-3 month record cycle for that established temperature period. This is application oriented, Thanks.

"It also seems as if some would prefer just a "lip" attachment on the front in lieu of a full fledged splitter, for increased clearance, easy detachment,etc,etc...I will look into that as I had not even considered it before."

I am def in for one...have yet to install my AIR.

I like the idea of just a lip that is easy to install without having to remove the bumper....like a 968TurboS splitter...just a lip

not average but it does get that low for a week or so..sometimes lower. humidity runs around 40%

Just cut off the new/old air unit, let me know when they're ready

We are still a little way out from a complete unit. My RE requested the info on humidity... we typically mold ABS at high temp, which makes it less impact resitant especially when exposed to extreme cold in absence of moisture. That is why we needed the reading, to establish the enviromental tolerance parameters. As long as we are not dropping in to the 30/33%RH range we are good. Thanks.

Wow Never knew it was that technical. Looks like you're doing well CPR. Keet it up!

Additives in conjunction with heat allow us to manipulate the end product consistency levels. HT allows for a more rigid product but with more potential for fraility at low temperatures, especially in the absence of atmospheric moisture thus causing the product "tense" and ultimately shatter due its environmentally induced molecular state. LT allows for a rigid product but with more flexibility, especially at low temps and, to a degree, is impervious to the RH in repsect to molecular fragmentation.

It's not as technical as it seems...think of it like putting too much flour in a cake...fluffy and soft...now put alot less flour in a cake...much denser and hard. Now bake that cake at 600 degrees for 10 minutes...hard as a brick, but also brittle, but bake it at 400 degrees for 18 minutes and firm but flexible...I mean edible.

That might have been a bad analogy, but you should get the overall idea.

Aye...that is what we making the new splitters out of now. This way when it shatters, you can at least pull over....relax...and enjoy some cake.

The heat does not seem to be an issue. Just extreme, dry cold. Unless of course you get the cake version, then you have a chance of the frosting melting off.
