Default New Front Splitter/Air Dam





ISC Racing
www.iscracing.net

$225 is a damn good price for a functional part.

Mounting? - "We used a bolt at the upper rear of the air dam on each side, the front 'hooks' over the grille opening."

Brake Cooling? - "We have included the cooling duct opening but no attachment."

Is there an underbody portion? - "Yes it is completely closed on the bottom."

Got this from Mike @ ISC Racing

I'd like to see one painted.... because right now I vote that it's horribly ugly but most likely functional

As long as it prevents more air from going under the car, then it's functional. I'd probably mount it sturdier if it were mine.

Anything that ugly needs to be functional unless it also fits Civics.

That thing pulled a full 1.5 second off a 2:30 lap time. It was designed around the "limits" of the SCCA ITA rules, so it's looks are come from function and rules first. The one I ran was made from the notorious BSR sheet plastic and an aluminum carpet threshold. Stuck to the front using industrial velcro. Never deformed, never came off and held at 120mph over and over.

it kind of resembles a spec 7 front, I like it, but needs better mounting and paint.

It was never meant to go up a driveway, because it's meant for a race car.

+1 to kotomile. It's way to low for the street. Fugly is just dandy at the track for a functional part.
