Standard Carbon Fiber Kevlar Reinforced Splitter
What we offer in our standard composite splitter is something we feel is difficult to find. When we're at the track we notice that our competitors do one of two things, they either mount plywood/alumalite splitters to their car that they built at home and did all the work to mount, or they buy a "carbon fiber" splitter online that was supposedly designed around their race car. We find that usually these designed carbon fiber splitter packages aren't well thought out and are pretty highly priced for what they are.
We decided to offer our standard design that we use to the public, we created a more economical version for smaller sized cars as well as a wider version that incorporates our front diffusers.
Our splitter bridges the gap for those who don't have the ability to produce their own custom composite parts but aren't willing to settle for bolt on splitters that are commonly available. It's also for those wise enough to know that cheaper materials aren't ideal for any load bearing application like the aerodynamics of a race car. We wanted to provide a professional level part to the amateur teams without taking up their whole budget.
Our splitter mold is designed around fairly wide wheel base E46 M3. The front diffusers are really the only integral part of this particular mold, but their location works for almost every production car. For other cars we make a smaller splitter which is completely flat on the bottom.
The front diffusers are angled at 11 degrees, located 48" apart and have a width of 11.5". We use a 3/8" core-cell foam with a beveled front edge. We wrap this with one layer of kevlar, followed by carbon on the bottom, and two more layers of carbon on the top. This produces a good compromise of weight, stiffness, and strength. These splitters are typically between 8 and 10 lbs. We can build stronger or lighter splitters if necessary, let us know your requirements. Our splitters are made with a carbon infusion process to ensure a strong and lightweight part using only epoxy resin.
Our flat splitter is approximately 71" wide, but can be adjusted if needed. Our wider splitter with the diffusers incorporated is approximately 78" wide. Custom dimensions and curvatures are available at additional lead times but not necessarily additional cost. Contact us about your specific application. We are currently seeking distributors who want to use our splitter with their own mounting design for different makes/models that we don't support. Splitter weight for the flat splitter is approximately 7lbs and our wider splitter is about 10lbs.
We now have the option to purchase our mounting system. This system is significantly different than anything else out on the market in that it spreads the load out to 4 points for each side of the splitter. The straps are designed to bend if necessary when the splitter is hit. This allows the splitter to move up or back without damaging the actual element. The straps can often be bent back into shape after an incident or replaced very economically if necessary. We use only aircraft grade hardware to assemble these kits.
All parts are manufactured in Irvine California.
