Awesome to see this coming together Kevin!! Can't wait to start seeing installed pix of these things. Wipes any little bit of 'cute' right off the nose of an Elise. GREAT looking/functional piece!

yes,there are prices posted on the first page.these will be good for the first 5 people on the list.im afraid i will need to increase the price a bit for 6 through to any new orders i take.i will have these new prices up shortly.i need to sit down a figure out the true cost on these things.

i will get you these measurements soon.

thanks brad.it feels good to be in pure production mode now.

well nick was going to do it.i think he is in Hawaii for awhile.believe me.im interested too.there wont be any track days near me for some time.so i need to get a splitter to one of the guys in a warmer climate so we can get some early testing in.from my street testing it feels really nice.i pushed the car pretty hard too.so im confident its working well.now its only going to get better running lower ride heights and better shocks.plus adding in dive planes and rear wings.im as low as i can get with track pack shocks on base tires.i would need to get the raised hub bore uprights and better shocks to get my car down where this splitter will really start working.

I get on the track on a regular basis so once I get mine installed I can provide feedback for you. I am willing to help out in any way I can...I will accept an E-glass/Nomex unit in lieu f fthe carbon if it helps... If not I would rather the carbon unit if there is going to be a weight savings with an increase in stiffness...

paul,are you in florida?your avatar looks like sebring.thanks for the offer to provide feedback.the carbon ones will be stiffer.im not sure how much lighter they will be.this week will be the week where i switch over to making carbon ones.so if i can get a splitter top to come out looking good.i could start having carbon ones available in a week or so.otherwise i will have 2 eglass nomex splitters done early this week.

i will be cutting into a fresh roll of carbon here in a few days.these parts are taking far longer than i expected.i still need to do the install directions too.the molds are ready to go for the carbon parts.i spent most of the day fine tuning the upper mold so the parts come out nice.so the time is now for carbon.i have done 3 eglass so far.i want to say that im very sorry that these have taken so long.im at the point in this project that im thinking,what have i got myself into?but then i think back to testing and i remind myself how kick ass this splitter really is.

as far as completion dates on the carbon splitters.i have no idea.the eglass ones take me a full 5 day work week to complete.im hoping the carbon ones are the same.i dont want to quote a time and not meet it.

good or bad,i will post my results when the carbon parts start popping.
