It's a giant piece of Carbon Fiber cut it and make it into any shape you want. Then buy the brackets and put them in whatever position you choose. I think Tony & Isaac did a write up on this awhile back it was a great write up I must say. thumbsup

yup air splitter...

Splitters act as a front wing- they add downforce when they're pointed down a little...

The thing to know is that, if the splitter is properly angled, it really gives you extra grip, even at low speeds (think of your hand out the window doing the "up and down" thing... the faster the car goes, the faster your hand goes up or down)

You want them to stick out a little- that's how they "grab" the air. They also push air up into the radiator. Think of how air flows over a plane's wing and you'll be able to imagine that the air moving under the splitter is moving much faster than the air above, because the air above basically runs into the wall that is your front bumper/radiator.

o and that's Tony's car next to Isaac's happywink
as to where you can get them... i'll get back to you on that if i can find it
