Lightbulb steel zerosports replica scoop splitter.

I ordered one of these off of ebay, but I know vendors are starting to sell them. I failed to enquire as to what the splitter was made out of, and when I received it, I was a bit shocked. The steel splitters are nicely done, but they are extremely heavy, so be careful before you buy one. Our hoods bounce around enough as it is, but to attach another ~7lbs to it might not be a good idea. Just my $0.2

the shipping weight on it was 10lbs, so i would say it weighs less than that, but much heavier than an aluminum one, or even the type ra splitter. lets just say that when i received it, i didn't feel right about putting it under my hood, but thats just me. i am sure it works great though.

The real zerosports splitter is also stainless.

I`m not sure what you mean by our hoods bouncing? Mine never moves and I have a replica (stainless) zerosport splitter.

Where did you see the aluminum replica?

Hmm, my guess would be it is a mistype.

I`ve never seen nor heard of an aluminum version.

If anyone is interested in buying the stainless version I would HIGHLY recommend checking this site:

I have the exact same one from Ravspec. I bought mine awhile ago when the prices were much higher.

They are good guys to deal with.
