Default Gathering all Potential Front Dive Plane / Canard Options Thread...

Like the title says, gathering all existing/discovered dive plane options.

Myself and others are hunting for different options and there are surprisingly a lot of them out there, i will link a few here after bit, but if anyone wants to go first, have at it.

APR makes a set that I was interested in I emailed them, asking if they had any aero data, or made any meaningful downforce. They replied the primary objective was to steer air away from the turbulent wheel well sea. No data. They look good though

Link to what I believe is a forum vendor. They are much cheaper on eBay though.

Mike so check this out. I purchased the APR carbon fiber dive canards first, put them up to my bumper, and honestly loved them. But then I saw these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/182204702668. I thought they looked a bit more my style and are also carbon fiber. I never installed my APR ones and my new ones from DarwinPRO arrived today and they look stunning! Actually they both are amazing quality top notch carbon fiber, but of course they aren't cheap for how small they are.

I will get my new ones installed tomorrow and get some pics. I will be selling my brand new never installed APR ones now.

They seem to be the most functional thus far that i have seen.

Please put up the pics of both up next to the car, held on by hand is fine, and if you can make a video of how they sit on the car or maybe take some pics. I am interested if they can start lower toward the center front, and then go up high toward the outside, like in my drawings on my cutout thread.
