How much downforce compared to stock does the splitter and wing produce? How about just the wing with the stock splitter?

Now I have to have a set of those WHEELS man they are awesome. If you still have my email address or PM me a quote. I need the loyal customer price LOL. Ben see what you can do for me on the wheels no joke. Thanks Duane
They work so well on the car to me, so I'm glad you like them! I'll shoot over a price I designed these and they're forged, cut down in FL.

Haha thanks... I love them. The finish is Black Chrome, I want to cut another set darker as well.

Thanks! I have a new design for a full diffuser coming out in March. This one is a carbon rear fascia with some add on diffusers painted in carbon flash. I'll sell this one once my new ones are in though

I'm still compiling some data on variations; however, it is well over 1000 lbs together!

Ben I think if you would make one in between the factory and yours it would be more of what people would buy. As far as the cry baby he lives in a rented house with beer cars everywhere. Everyone knows when you drive a low car you ease over into the dip etc. Nut job wants a video . lmao By the way I have never seen a vender give away more prizes especially expensive ones like you do. A true asset to the Corvette Community.

you’re right, I may have missed Bens question in the subject line “ Is it too big ?” He asked, some replied.......ok, maybe too strongly for that I apologize but name calling I did not do as I’m not “12”. Lol

I can get in and out of my driveway just the same as the underside tapers up some beyond where the OEM splitter ends. If your OEM splitter doesn't drag before, this won't drag if you take the same approach entering and exiting.







Your car is also basically on the floor compared to gm height specs.

It's just a little too big for my taste, but that's just my opinion.

Don't care for it... looks like a cow catcher on a train. Plus the factory part was an actual "underwing" airfoil that generated downforce based on the shape of the part, not the length of the splitter.

Ben,
I always appreciate the data and products you offer in this forum. Your customer service personnel are second to none. The big difference I see between you and other vendors is that you actually engineer and develop products to meet the needs of your customer base. You keep competitive prices with other high quality products.You seek input from potential customers, not all of it intelligent or wanted, and you respond to the input. I understand you built your business in a very competitive aftermarket with high standards for your services and products. Not every product is for everyone. The extra large splitter and wing are not something I desire but I know the quality is there as it is in all the products you offer. I have the ZTK wing and the low mounts you have developed are something I want to purchase, not for function, rather for appearance. All of the CF body parts you have developed are excellent quality and are very desireable for appearance enhancement of the ZR1 and other Corvettes. I also have a Gen6 ZL1 and follow your developments with that platform. I hope you continue the good work and service you perform on this forum. Just ignore the people who come to the picnic but bring nothing to the table to share.

I agree 100%. Those wheels are gorgeous.

The splitter is a bit much for me, but I'm old....

Now, Ben, GET OFF MY LAWN.
