I made one from T60 aluminum. Its just like the Lotus Sector 111 version or pretty close anyway. I have a vertical TMIC as well, so its a aero/scoop package deal. I'm sure it all has to be sealed to be 100% effective, totally agree. I'm just curious if what I made works. this is from last fall and I now have 6 turn buckles holding it and a custom exhaust that's not quite finished..but the idea is Next is, I use this for a mold and carbon fiber it.. :thumbup :thumbupSvx92 said:What rear diffuser are you running Arizona?
The explanation of them from the early 90s when IMSA GTP/lights cars were using them was that they assisted the extractors behind the front wheels and kept air from getting mixed up in the wheel wells in an attempt to keep flow alongside the car as smooth as possible.Caprandom said:On the wheel well splitters, more than likely they will have no benefit on a production vehicle. A ton of emphasis on front aero parts on race cars is how they affect the air at the rear of the car. The function of them probably to affect how air flows over the rear of the car and not to direct air around the wheel well opening.
A splitter is actually something I am working on (although not necessarily on a stock car / stock height).Wheelman13 said:I think I went into some kind of diabetic geek-shock reading this thread.
Hmm, stuff that would be curious to see (and easy to do)
-A ~4-6" splitter on the front at basically the stock ride height.
-"speed flaps" on the leading edges of the wheel wells
-Extending the roof a little and adding some of those vortex generator thingies (like if you bridged the area above the engine bay)
-Blocking off the undertray but then actually modelling some ducting out the hood (and maybe taking some sucker fans into account)
Also, did your model reflect the scoop-like final undertray? (can't recal the number).
