    Fixed link.

    Made a difference in the high speed straights according to the ass-dyno. Felt more planted and stable.

    Only wait to really know would be to get a better driver and run a/b/a/b testing (splitter on/off/on/off)

    Other than Alumalite/Econolite to make the splitter. If I were to make another one in the future I'd consider looking at:

    Tegris . NASCAR uses this for splitters. It's pricey though.

    or

    Plascore AA3.6-80. Great because it has a hexagonal core.

    or just lay my own up in Carbon Fiber/ Kevlar with Divinycell Foam for a core

    If I "rolled my own" up I go

    Top
    Single Layer 12k 10x10 Carbon
    Divinycell Foam 10mm'ish thick
    Single Layer 12k 10x10 Carbon
    Kevlar Plain Weave Fabric 5.0 oz - Purpose: wear resistance
    Bottom

    I'd also consider substituting that Kevlar layer with a 1-2 mm thick High Density Polyethylene sheet riveted to the carbon/foam sandwich. It'd serve the same purpose, and you could replace it fairly easily if it ever wore through.

    Back from the dead. How has this held up. Still have it? I'm about to attempt a build of my own using aluminite. Want to do front and rear diffuser. More so looks for me. No tracking for me
