I had a good time at the track. Lots of rain though and standing water, so had to take it very easy. I ran my street tires (cheap Tire Rack Sumitomo HTRZIII's), and was pretty impressed with their performance. I wasn't pushing hard enough to really notice much difference with the new splitter, but the front end felt nicely planted. No crazy oversteer! Here's a photo taken on the way home, and a video of one of my laps.

Solution to this is helicopter tape. Bolts or just adhesive, that thing will fly off at speed unless you seal it off with helicopter tape.

I have seen people complaining about losing these on the highway from the downforce and ripping part of their front clam with the splitter. you guys obviously wont have that issue since the bumper is polyurethene but you would lose the splitter.

If you guys want to see the stuff I sell for the lotus owners heres the facebook page.
