Default WEAPON-X ZTX Splitter is ON... is it too BIG?!

Hey guys, as promised our new ZTX Splitter is on and is wild! We will be offering this in the stock size as well as this ZTXL version that adds about 50mm to the front of this, with optional ZTX side Splitter end caps. The ZTXL really exaggerates the nose and stretches the look of the car some. I haven’t fully tested it yet but “at speed” on the way home last night, it felt reallllly good! I’m going to open these up to pre-order with a discount if you want one in March!

Check out product details here:
https://weaponxmotorsports.com/produ...14290380030001









Also, don’t forget to check out the ZTX stock sized and ZTXL wings if you want the ZR1 style Carbon Big Wing kit! Together, this car looks pretty wicked and is PLANTED at high speeds!

A bit too much for my liking, but I'm sure others may like it.

Since you asked, YES to front and back - ugly IMO. surfboard, ironing board, whatever...……...too huge and the front looks like a huge paint scraper. Sorry but you asked.

While i like the look, this is not practical for the street or track. If you lower the front as directed to take advantage of the front underwing (as directed), you can hit the oem splliter on curbing. I have seen this at Road Atlanta. You would have to avoid curbing on the track. As for street use, my oem barely clears my driveway. Just an fyi.

I agree, I'd be having anxiety every time I had to pull in anywhere.

Can you stand on it? If not, then it is not doing much except for looks.

Ben,

i have preordered one of these with you, but I have to agree with some of the other posts. The XL version is going to be too much for me to use practically at RA or on the street. Please put me down for a OEM ZTK size! Thanks!!

Too big...and without a lifter, would never make it over the curb and into my driveway. Weave looks awesome!

... and this is why I love forums. 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.

you eat a lot of lead paint chips as a kid? I get it, you don't like it... what you obviously don't understand is the concept of a rhetorical question ... quit embarrassing yourself at my expense... LOL

It doesn't make the rear end big at all! (Same answer as to the question: 'Does this make my *** look big?').

Seriously, I think it looks wild and aggressive. I wonder how much down force does it create (front and rear)?

It's large, but it don't really look bad to me Ben. I think if I bust mine I would probably want the OEM size, I was looking at the rear diffuser that looks nice I am ready for the new one can't wait. 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

Which state/city do you live in?

Your driveway looks like its from a house with a more modern neighborhood. Where I live in tri state area, over 80% of the houses are from WWII era with hills and valleys in every street and steep driveways. Most people living in the central part of the US have this problem of assuming rest of the country has the same luxurious and big houses with perfectly high ceilings and flat driveways

A $250k “mension” in midwest or central US with 3000 sq ft living space and 10 ft ceilings costs over $1.25M in my neighborhood and that 1.25M is considered not so great. A true new construction of same standards is twice that amount.

Default Improved for sure

I like them Ben, and I love that rear diffuser. All of your new carbon fiber parts have definitely improved the factory look. Nice job, and a very good eye for the details that were left out. These parts are on my short list, just waiting on the funds.
