Challenge CF Lip + ESS s/c = 3m tape fail

The (down) force is strong in this one.

I tried putting more 3m tape but it's sagging again. Do you guys have any suggestions? I'd prefer not to take it off and completely reinstall it.

Thanks!

I've clocked a little over 200kph at several track days in replicas using only 3M tape. No issues.

You may need to use silicon to fill the gap between the lip and bumper to prevent girt and dirt from wedging and separating the lip.

It helps to use primer to clean contact surface, then use a C-Clamp (use cloth to prevent scratches) to compress the lip and bumper together so that it'll bond properly.

Was told to leave the c-clamp on for it to bond for 4 hours or so. I only waited around 45 mins before I told them to remove the clamps.

It's going to continue to sag if you don't reapply correctly. If it were me I would spend a few hours on the weekend to remove, re-apply 3M, clean the surface, and re-install again.

Don't take that risk of leaving as-is, the piece of mind of a re-do is much more satisfying.

I would take it off. Reclean both Surfaces and re-install. It's also useful to use the 3M adhesive promoter.
