Have you considered making a version of this splitter with quick release fasteners (dzus fasteners for example) so it can be easily removed for street driving?

Based on the geometry of the splitter, it would be very hard to create additional access holes for the quick release fasteners

I should add this to my GT4.
Looks very good and functional.
Do you have detailed pics from underneath please?
Is the lower lip adjustable?

I bought the APR lip off the shelf and custom made everything. So far, I have tried it around LA streets. It also had no problem holding up two days at Autoclub speedway. So I can easily say that my set up is golden for track. Well, unless you hit sth hard.

did you have to go with that lip because you needed more downforce with the Varis wing?

the GT4 lip did create enough for the rear wing?

Without the huge front lip, the Varis wing would only slowing the car down and adding good amount of understeer.

The front lip was actually a little too much sometimes and actually add too much downforce and caused the car tend to be oversteer, so I had to adjust the suspension setting to balance it out.

So far, I only have done two track days with the new aero set up. When the aero paring with my Moton, my car can be changed from street car to perfect track machine; and within a few adjustment, it can also be a drifting car. So, that being said, I'm really happy with the outcome.

Glad you are enjoying the splitter and the Moton Clubsport kit. I will need to get a ride with you when I visit CA
