thanks man! I'll have to give credit where credit is due tho. A LOT of the fabrication work on this one was done by my buddy. Dude does awesome work and is always thinking outside the box. The fab idea I had in my mind had to do with removing the factory bumper beam. He wanted to do it without removing that. And we did.

Not really sure your first two questions on this one. The wind deflector and how is it mounted to the car? It's an aerodynamic splitter. The way it works is it's smooth surface allows the air/wind to move quicker underneath the car. This creates less air pressure underneath the car and greater air pressure above the car (aka downforce). at higher speeds, it pushes the car down, giving it more traction under high speed cornering. I've road raced the car a couple of times last year, and plan to race it a lot more this year. One of the reasons I made it. Plus, I think it looks sick. ahah

but to answer your second question, yes. it is adjustable. Those rods screw/unscrew into themselves, so I can raise or lower the front of the splitter which would change the angle (change the downforce) of it.

lol that's my buddy's lift. He's basically the "go-to" guy for virtually anything around our area. He does awesome work and does it super fast. That lift makes everything sooooo much easier. lol
