    Seems like if you messed up, it would be easy for that to generate forced air lift that reduces your traction at speed by taking weight off the tires.

    thats looks like a Top Secret under body diffuser. To make one you would probably have to buy the actual lip and make a mold with plaster or rubber. Then throw on some fiberglass and resin.

    hmmm. i would have thought that as long as the front lip is lower than all the trailing points - you should be sweet.

    the channels for air running to the brake duct im thinking also create some sort of vacumn down.

    but hey. if you want top performance - get one off the shelf.

    I'd use bacon. Its a little heavy, but with all that heat in the engine bay, you'd have a nice, big breakfast after you get to work in the morning.
    Is this where the witty comment goes?

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
