Anyone is more than welcome to buy a set and explore alternative mounting methods, but these will come with a tried and true hardware method that won't have issues with heat and track abuse.

Good; I'm sure I still got some double-sided Scotch tape left over from when I installed my side skirts and canards...

Does the 49% improvement apply to the NA or NB?

This is only the beginning. Group buy was to confirm that the interest was there. The plan was and is to do full production of these given that the group buy proved the demand was there. I'd say that's confirmed

We're going to focus first and foremost on delivering to those on the group buy, but hot on the heels of that we'll be working out the details for full production.

Is it just me who doesn't like the half circle placement on the hood? Would be much better if the front of the cuts are in the same level.

Air travels away from a point at the front of the car in a radial pattern due to the high pressure point at the very nose of the car, and the air traveling around the windshield. You're not dealing with a purely linear system like a 2D analysis of an airfoil here. You have to accommodate airflow in three dimensions.

If you string test your hood, you're going to see air moving in a pattern like the directions that the vents are oriented.

Those who have sent a deposit will be getting a follow up email later tonight about the remainder owed as well as an update on the group buy.

Awesome to see this come to light, but sucks we won't be able to get the great pricing since it sold out in hours :(
