front spoiler extension

Ive seen pics of this guys car a few times and always loved the extension on the front spoiler. I was wondering if anyone has done this to their car and if so how? Any help would be appreciated.

That does look bad ***! Where did you see that guys car? On that site in the pic? Try posting this in the appearance board, you may get more responses! I want to know more. I am sure he made it b/c i have never seen one before. Looks like a spoiler for auto-x or some type of road racing!

That is freakin sweet!! It looks like he might have a spoiler in the rear at the bottom as well. ( or one freakin humongous tip)

looks like he just put a flat piece of fiberglass or something under the front spoiler that sticks out an extra inch or something.. looks really nice though.

messed around a few minutes.. my conclusion is that he did put something under it.. i edited the piece he had under it, now it looks like a normal car..

You could attach a piece of PVC under the spoiler. But I'd ONLY do it for track use. Don't you 91-92 guys scrape your spoiler enough already? Now you want to make it lower and stick out further forward? (but it looks cool!). I filled in the area under the spoiler with two pieces of sheet PVC extending back the full length of the spoiler to cut down on under-car air turbulence. It is not visible at all unless you put the car on a lift or feel under the spoiler.

A splitter, cool Ideal. Had been thinking that too for awhile.
I think Wootah is correct about the construction.
The only thing "I'm" doing different is as the splitter comes around the sides, make them angle (AOA) up slightly (some call wiskers) not follow the stock lines, so it really works. Just my 2 cents.

When I find that my car starts losing stability at 230mph I'll consider getting one of them. Until then I'll just stick to stuff that's actually useful.

It seems to be true, thats pretty amazing to run a 1/4 in the 11's and have gears to get you up to 251 mph, pretty nuts.

Car: '89 Z28tt
Engine: Dart Little M Twin Turbo
Transmission: T56
As soon as I get the Z28tt back on the road, I'm looking at fabricating some ground effects for the third-gens. I've got the rocker panel extensions designed, and will extend the front a bit as well. I need to measure suspension travel before bump stops, to see how much I can get away with. Everything will be held in place with 1/4 turn Dzus fasteners so it can go on/off easily. Hell - my '92 IROC ground effects scrape going on trailer, so the front will need to come on/off easily. The side skirts will be alum or carbon fiber, and I need to find a source for urethane up front, for a little flexibility. At some point, I've been thinking of setting up a belly pan and diffuser at the rear as well. There was an article a few years ago of an open road racing third-genner that had true ground effect ducting. Thoughts?
