Sure can. We just have to retrofit some rivnuts to the normal lip so the splitter undertray can be mounted to it.

Did you run brake ducting and fab some backing plates? Or did you just put it on for cosmetic reasons? I would love to see some backing plates and ducting if you all did this. Thanks.

We'll have a supply of rivcerts here for those that want to attach the bottom portion to their existing Challenge Lip, not a problem.

We're waiting on the Carbon backing plates to be released shortly from Challenge - which will fully complete the setup.

How about some pics when this piece is installed and on the lift?

Also, how difficult is it to install at the track? I mean this really makes the car too low for daily street use.

Absolutely, we grabbed some quick pics before hitting the track at MFest:

Oil Cooler Outlet ventilation:

Lip can be easily installed at the track with a screwdriver (with front supported by jackstands).

Surprisingly, the lip stoop up very well after LVMS, with only minor damage from body roll on the very edges of the lip, the panhead screws will touch the pavement before the carbon.

That's exactly what I wanted to see!

Thanks!

Or actually it could be fiber reinforced plastic. (frp)
