Update looks better. Wanting one now lol. Any files of just the diffuser? To see how far it goes back.

The update is a solid improvement, brings the back end closer to 2018. Since the outlet for the exhaust tips is now enclosed, will the diffuser accommodate most aftermarket sizes? The rendering looks like a "tight fit".

The thread is titled Race Edition

To me, this implies something designed to be functional on the racetrack.

Look at the diffusers on the C5R and C6R for functional designs.

You're getting pretty as an attractive street version, and I question its usefulness on the racetrack.

I want something that maximizes racetrack benefit.

The muffler is in the center and the facyory slits on the bumper are ment for heat extraction

Pretty sure the factory slits are to reduce the air daming of the rear bumper. The exhaust has cooled substantially by that point.
