Bit of a tease I know but I couldn't wait....

Here in the first picture is the lower mould for a carbon accessory for my 360, The second is the upper mould. What will it be I wonder?:)

Carbon CUP R front splitter?

Aerodynamically same as cupR. But all one piece.

Sorry, but front splitters should be made of plywood and nothing else. Consider them consumables, the first thing to sacrifice on speed bumps, curbs, parking lots and all those other opportunities to otherwise crack carbon.

No idea, but its only about 5mm lower than the standard one it replaces, Although it does stick out a little further

I never go anywhwere that has speed bumps, it still has almost 100mm of clearance so is fine for everything I use the car for

 . 

Will be testing it at Anglesey next Friday on the Exiges.com Track day. There are two small changes to make on the Splitter to help with fitting.

I have also made some plates that fit inside the clam to spread any down force loads, These need to manufactured rather than me making some in the shed.

The moulding is done and ready to go so after testing I will be adding to the website

Hang on, you sold me a front splitter made of POLYCARBONATE or something, not plywood!   :devil:

Good point, but polycarbonate is equally indestructible. I guess I oversimplified. :sofa:

The Lotus Motorsport barge boards were made out of plywood. They look good, feel good and they are strong!
