Default Very thin Carbon Fiber!

I received your ZR-1 Splitter and side skirts today for my street C-6 Z-06. They were package very well and they better be!

I'm a racer and if I intended to used these on my racing Corvette, I'm sure they would have been toast within the first 20 minute practice session. They are soooo paper thin!!! Yes, we all like items added to the Corvette to be light, but these will flex way too much!

I got the expensive Carbon Fiber Set expecting a high quality product. I took photos of the actual fasteners used on a factory ZR-1 at Barrett/ Jackson Auction to see what was used. Chevrolet used a hex head with a large washer face to secure their splitters. Yours get supplied little phillips head screws with small washer face begging to crack later.

I wish I could say I was pleased, but I may have lay glass cloth it these to keep them from breaking, or expect at buying them again real soon when then get nudged of hit by a rock off a tire.

Remember the old saying, you get what you pay for. I have the side skirts on my '07 and I used a larger hex head self tapping anchor screw. I really did not expect these to be a product that would add downforce and I think most of us know that downforce really isn't an issue with a street car. I did have their splitter and mine never fit right so I threw it away and got a much more expensive one for another online supplier. I had to wait 7 weeks to receive it, and the attachment screws were not what I would consider sufficient, so I used the same as I used on the skirts. Also if I wanted a real downforce splitter I would also add a lot of reinforcement to the bumper cover where the splitter attaches.

Here is mine with the splitter and side skirts.

Yes, you're right the attachments will not do the job correctly. I thinking of sending them back, or fill the back side with foam and attached some race-based Difold, which is very strong heat treated light aluminum sandwiched PU, underneath it and extend it to give it protection. and make them a real splitter. I want it to look nice, but be functional and long lasting. I saw a guy barely touch something with these at a car show in Scottsdale last month and cried seeing it cracked. The longer I think about it, the more disappointed I become. I guess it comes from my race experience and seeing thousands of splitters in my day.
