"loosing" - to release
"losing" - to not win, to misplace, to remove

Sorry Leafy, just being a "grammar ****" here since this misspelling is my #1 "pet peeve" ever since I was spammed by a marketer trying to sell me a product that would make me "LOOSE WEIGHT NOW!!!".

Why would I want "LOOSE WEIGHT"?

Isn't that the stuff that hangs over your belt?

Who wants that?

Finished out the final design and submitted that to the waterjetter. Pretty excited about it. Material is being ordered and should have the final version before the weekend. Then it's the final install in hood, repeat pressure testing to confirm everything rocks, and open the group buy

Well, this went all to ****.

Ryan, I'm sorry I shot my mouth off about this. Dude is obviously not interested in selling parts, only in bitching about not selling parts.

hood vents, wing risers, hard top, and a splitter and my aero should be just about finished.

It could be worse though. A school in Melbourne highlights its language expertise by including the word "Grammer" in its title.

Yes, my use of a singular subject with a plural verb were delibert.

Posted a poll about gurney flap material, if you have serious interest in buying the hood louvers when they are released, please give us your input!

I'm interested in a set for NA. Personally not interested in carbon fiber.

Right on, make sure you vote then. We're going with the consensus of the tribe.

I'm not a carbon queen, but $15 is peanuts. Do you have a mock drawing of what you're thinking? It'd be a lot easier to picture if we had pictures. :P

If it's small, low profile, something you'd have to look hard at to see that they're carbon, I'd go for it. But if they're large and showy I'd just as soon go aluminum 'cause they're getting painted (or ano'd).

Edit: This much carbon = blech

This much carbon = aww yiss

Carbon for no reason is stoopid. The original Gurney flap was aluminum, so why not keep it that way? The weight difference is nominal and the site of cracking, UV destroyed carbon is depressing.

As for the hood vents, my .02 is that replacing cut out aluminum bracing with riveted stainless steel louvers that have dimension means that any bracing strength lost would probably be gained right back with the louvers.

Steel? What do you think we're making here, parts for muscle cars, where nobody cares about weight?
These will be aluminum.

If it's small and low-profile, how much good is it really doing??
