Thanks again Andy, that's a good explanation.

I was just at the Glen this weekend with Ferrari, and ran with the 4 degree ones. I was expecting for the car not to be as planted as with the 8 degree ones. With the new surface from 2 years ago the track has so,so much grip. I did not get a lot of track time (cracked front rotor), so I only had limited data. You really need to be pushing to get the benefits with the 8 degree ones vs. 4 degree.

Instead of using the plastic Mickey Mouse push rivets to attach the front Cup splitter, I installed steel blind nuts (T-nuts) in the bumper and use plastic bolts to attach the splitter. The nylon bolts attach the Cup splitter tightly to the bumper without any gaps whatsoever, yet will shear if the splitter is exposed to a hard impact. This allows the splitter to detach from the bumper without damaging the bumper itself. It's also relatively quick and easy to unbolt the splitter from the bumper which I do in order to load the car on the trailer. Works perfectly...This is a worthwhile mod as pretty much every tracked GT3 I've seen has the splitter hanging on by a thread and guys are always resorting to creative but not very appealing solutions with tape.
