Nice work! And great looking car!

To date, I think only the Voltex stuff has been wind tunneled.

Here is a better pic of version 2.0. I felt a bit rushed where I was at so I wasn't able to get any other pics.

You can see it goes all the way to the rear diff. Everything upfront is tucked up to prevent any wind from going over it. Not perfect but a hell of a lot cheaper than buying one.

Are you guys covering the front part of the diffuser? If not that will create a serious amount of drag. Either way I like the DIY attitude. Might have to do this one day.

The way I see it, if it does "scoop" air up it wont cause any more drag than the rear bumper itself causes

I wanted mine to be somewhat functional so I blocked the air from coming over it.

ImNOrobo, how did you get the edge to bend/curve up and meet the bumper? Also, with the strakes (fins) how are those attached? Looks great, just trying to start making my template.

The material allows me to heat it up and bend it. Once it cools it will hold that shape, I put the screws in it to hold it place. The fins are attached by screws from the top, there is five in each.

Thanks man, that was the original idea. The way it is now has grown on me and I could still make it work out with a bottom line type kit. I want to make them functional as well so I haven't made them yet.

Well this just made me smile. If anyone took the time to make a few dozen of these designed around true functionality with the expanded PVC they could make a nice profit.

Price just depends on demand and how much the person making them feels their time is worth. Only sucky part is how long it takes to make them and needing donor cars to make examples for different model years.

I've been contemplating doing this for the last year. I've decided to finally take the plunge ad make a full carbon unit that models the apr unit.

Ill start by making a perfect plug out of wood/plastic with bondo to smooth everything out, then I will make a fibreglass mold from it, then I will use that to create my 100% carbon custom rear diffuser! Ill do a write up and ill make a thread as it progresses.

The best part is that I will have a great mold that I can use over and over again if needed.

I have yet to decide weather I'm going to vacuum by the fibreglass mold or if ill do it by hand. I'm going to mock up a vacuum setup and see how it performs. If it doesn't work the way I want I will just lay in the carbon fibre by hand.
