I'm interested. More ground clearance than your current style lip would be ideal.

Maybe you can offer more color options by using vinyl wrap instead of paint? Just an idea.

The mode V1 lip would be perfect if it extended to the ends, but don't think that's the look they're going for.

We are taking the current design and making it less low to the ground basically. We have already done it before in carbon for a race teams use with a splitter for a spec series. The lip will go all the way to the ends as it does now

Sounds like a brilliant plan!

How is the weight compared to current piece?

Any info on what shore rating of the urethane you will be using?

It would give us an idea of how flexible it would be, how resistant to impact/rocks pebbles, etc.

Thanks

I wont know the weight of the urethane part until its completed but it will weigh more than a carbon part.

The lip can be twisted or bent in half like a taco and still come back to its original shape

In for less aggressive too. I had more trouble with the lip sticking out too much than being too low. That's what caused the scraping.

Any chance of a group buy??

We're working on the master part starting next week. Hopefully I can have it in hand at the factory within 2 weeks. Production time for mold and first test parts is about 4-5 weeks usually. I would guess an ETA of around mid May may be realistic for production parts.

How thick would the cross section be? I really like how aggressive it is currently. If you made a lip that was more robust than carbon and the same shape it would be perfect for me.

Many of us have the carbon fiber front lip and diffuser. So to keep things looking balanced....I thought a matching urethane diffuser would be great too.
Maybe I'm too OCD but a urethane front lip in black and a carbon fiber diffuser may look too mix and match....just a thought.

In reality, you're not gonna see the front and rear of the car at the same time - although, I do see where you're coming from.

It'll really depend on the design of the diffusor. If it really calls to attention, then maybe it'll look "mix and match" with the PU front lip. Otherwise, if the diffuser is subtle, shouldn't be a problem.

just my .02

Are you kidding me? I'm a quarter inch from the ground on my car, OF COURSE I NEED THIS.

I'm actually surprised it's taken a reputable brand this long to make this happen!

Sounds good. We have the lip in progress and the factory already has us on the schedule for mold and production

Sorry, I don't think we can do it with ducts in its current design.
