Default Custom rear diffuser

Just wondering if anyone has tried making one? I really like the way the C6R looks. If you have please posts pics!

Please no flamming but I made one for my daily driver trying to increase highway stability with its short wheel base. It felt a lot better cruising at 80 mph on the highway.

The diffuser:

My plan with my s/c c6 was to make one like the C6R with less fins. I just haven't seen any underbody pics of we're they tie it in. I'm thinking right by the rear leaf spring would be a good spot.

You can always order a Hi-Tech diffuser and see where that mounts to the rear of the C6. The C6R diffuser looks bad-***. If you perfect your product, it may yeild a few dollars.....

Don't laugh, but I have been looking for Smart car to use in place of a golf cart at Road America.

There is also at least 2 venders on here with "race" diffuser versions. They are different than the stock diffuser, but maybe not what you are looking for..??
