Wow that thing is sexy. If i had a track car, I'd totally rock it. As of right now, I'm just eagerly awaiting my V1. or whatever the normal one is called.

Nice.

Where are the supports transferring their load to? Why are the supports angled instead of vertical?

There is angle bracketing mounted behind the outside termination points and a straight piece of steel horizontally behind the two interior supports. After the fact it was realized this was overkill. A simple thru bolt/twin washer assembly at these and several other frontal mounting points were found sufficient to balance/deflect the applied horizontal energies encountered at speeds consistent to 135/145mph without compromising the strength or integrity of the area it was attached to.

The design of the unit makes it extremely structually sound. The supports are more of a complimentary and safety feature, although they do aid in consistently keeping the lip edge true under extreme duress.

The interior supports are angled for 2 reasons:
-to show the amount of adjustability available in the support
-to attept to clear the lower air intake area as much as possible (so as not to disrupt cooling flow)


The exterior support angle:
-the outsides were originally vertical, however after testing we found that the point that was best served via supports was a bit more to the outside (15 3/32" from the lower center support POA and 1 5/16" from the lip edge). Instead of relocating/redrilling* our upper mounting, we just adjusted the support to the desired area.
*I was trying not to swiss cheese my nose!


Hope that helps

I guess I could put a Lotus badge on there....the layouts on their SCCA cars is the same.

....and it would make it faster

My concern would be if I went off the track and the splitter "dug in" to the sand.... Would then, the supports rip the front bumper cover apart?

Typically, splitters with supports are supported to something structural for this very reason (the actual aluminum front bumper itself would be a decent support structure).

The loads imposed by the aerodynamic forces are one thing. When the splitter touches something is another thing altogether.

What you don't want is to damage the splitter, and rip out the front bumper cover in the process.

And when you're talking about race track usage... going off the track is part of the deal.

Just my .02 cents.


And FYI, I'd like to see the splitter even bigger... flush with the most forward point of the bumper skin. These cars push and can use all the front traction they can get.


So... I love the splitter, but make it extend further, and flatter (like a tray), tie the supports into something structural, and it's ready for the race track. God knows that we need a real deal front splitter. This could be it. Do that and you'll have a line of racers ponied up.

I believe it's only a half inch shy of the forward most point, IIRC. It's left slightly shorter to avoid any confusion with the rules, most of which wont allow it to protrude past the forward-most point of the bumper cover.

Could be. Hard to judge from the pictures.


I think we need more pictures!!!

Tony,
Good point on the sand issue.

The supports can be attached where ever, as the locations are not pre-drilled in the splitter.

As for extending it, we are in compliance with the PCA guidelines by 1/2". I can check the mold structure to see if we can elongate it any further.

Thanks

PATRICK

Hey Patrick how are things there I think that splitter would be the [email protected]*! As for the sand traps hell I guess it would be time to replace ( I had my time in the sand) Sooooo how about driving one by my shop so I can make "Playboy" look more sinister?????
