We made these for a customer running in the Time Attack Global race event held at Buttonwillow, CA. The results we very positive dropping seconds off the lap times as a consequence of high speed stability. The rear spoiler extends off the trunk far enough to pick up some clean air and result in down-force with limited drag to allow the driver to feel more comfortable as high speeds.
We make these here in California by hand. Our goal is to make perfect parts yet, subtle distortions in the weave or pin holes in the gel coat can happen.
With the right materials, the install is relatively easy with: 3M adhesive promoter #06396 and double sided tape #06378.
Feel free to contact Tony or Terry at Brooks Motor cars for installation in the Bay Area. http://www.brooksmotorcars.com/ Brooks Motor cars can install in any one of their 3 locations; call Tony G – (510) 632-8901.
Details: We use plain weave Toray & Toho carbon fiber 3k TOE, 200gsm dry. This is woven by Composite Fabrics of America in Taylorsville, NC. We also use a layer of fiberglass in the middle for impact or damage stability. We use polyester resins & clear gel coat for Marine applications to address the UV stability. NOTE: We have made epoxy parts for years. Many will argue that epoxy is the only true quality product. I would have agreed PRIOR to this project. These parts see the daylight and sun year round. Very few products do well in the sunlight “even with” UV stabilizers. We have found the down side to epoxy is they don’t work well in the sun and with paints. Everyone says using Polyurethane paints over epoxy are the way to go. These statements are WAY to general and in our experience, not 100% accurate. While many people may wrinkle their noses at the polyester, we are rolling with it and believe this is the best material for the application.
The large spoiler is: 4 lbs, 56″ long width of the trunk, by 7″ wide by 3.5″ tall.
The smaller spoiler is: 3 lbs, 56″ long by 4″ wide by 2.75″ tall.
**”Tall” is the size of the part. When this is installed, looking out the back window of the car is completely clear and visible, no interference.
Box: 16″ x 58″ x 6″ & will ship UPS small package trucks to most North American locations.
