Done. I did not put the prices, they can vary.I went with the Sector111 RaceSILLS (the IMRP ones) because they seemed to be the most livable in terms of being able to put the car up on jack stands / change tires without having to remove the sills. With the IMRP ones I can just place my hockey puck on the sill where it would go and lift right with the sill in place. That ruled out all the carbon ones as I don't think any of those would hold up without cracking/shattering. The IMRPs are also one of the biggest (widest) available so I feel like they most likely add the most downforce of any of the options.
You should have a mod sticky this once you've figure out all the options (update your original post with links, prices, etc).
That's perfect - thanks. I just PMed Aedo to see if he'll stick this. Someone (I'm willing) should write up a guide for the rest of the aero bits then great a aero uber-thread.Done. I did not put the prices, they can vary.
I don't like the racesills, they are too straight, I don't think they matches the car's general design. But that's just my opinion.
While there's certain no head-to-head testing (at least not that I've seen) I think Reverie has done the most comprehensive aero testing for our cars. That said since you can't get specific data you'd have to go with what, on paper, would be better - and I think I'm safe in saying that the IMRPs are the best for aero since they are much wider than all the others. The concept for skirts as I understand it is it makes the low pressure area under the car MUCH wider (as in 16" total width) at what is the narrowest part of the car (right where her hips are)Does anyone know how functional any of these sills are? I can't be the only one who would prefer the pair that gives some kind of aerodynamic advantage.
My unscientific data says YES. And not just a little - even on my black car my sills would get chewed to pieces (so much so that I have them wrapped in black vinyl over the black paint). Now with the sills not so much...Do the Exige skirts help to keep debris off the Lower panels?
I have a set for sale: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f95/cantrell-motorsports-side-skirts-157650/ Make an offer.Cantrell's are not available anymore, there is nothing on them on their website...
I agree they look great and look far easier to get in and out of the car as they are much (seemingly) narrower than mine. I wonder how much that affects aero though as I wonder how much wider the bottom of my car is vs. yours. While I'd guess we could be talking as much as 6-8" I honestly can't imagine that makes a huge difference in terms of down force.Here's my version of option #8 in the OP. These are custom cut for the Elise from .090 aluminum. Turned out great. The total cost was about $150.
