Default New Splitter Design

I just installed this splitter today. I've been running a Cup splitter, but a friend of mine is fabricating these so I will be trying it out. Here are some photos of it on my car, as well as some pics of it next to a Cup splitter. This one is made from fiberglass, but he's planning on also making them out of cf, using a special resin that will allow the splitter to remain somewhat flexible.

Back to back with my Cup splitter, this one is noticeably lighter, and should provide a bit more downforce. It's slightly deeper than the Cup splitter, and extends out a bit further. Cannot wait to test it out on track!

Ian, Is he interested in making more of these and selling them? I'm shopping Cup Splitters right now.

Hi Jeff,
You're welcome to drop by my place and take a look, the car is in bed for the winter. I've also got a spare one that you can look at. PM me if you want to see it.

If others are interested in this splitter, send me a PM and I'll talk to Joe and see if he's interested in a group buy.

They should be showing up. Try again, I just added another photo so maybe they weren't showing up at the time. Also make sure you're logged on.

I'd buy one pending cost and durability of the carbon fiber one.
Let us know.
Thanks

Good functional mod. I like it.

Price it well and you've got a winner there.

I just got off the phone with Joe, and he seems willing / happy to make more splitters. Rather than PM'ing me, please contact him directly at [email protected].
