FR-S / BRZ / GT86 - Race Splitter Upgrade
The race upgrade for the street front splitter increases down force and structural rigidity. The street front splitter was designed for those who want an aggressive aesthetic upgrade, a more planted feel, and slightly better fuel economy while at highway speeds. However, at 100 MPH and beyond, the splitter begins to see triple digit loads and the necessity to support the leading edge of the splitter begins to become apparent. For reference, at 100 MPH, our CFD analysis showed that the race splitter is being subjected to 150 pounds of down force, evenly spread across the leading edge of the splitter.
While improving the rigidity of the leading edge of the splitter is enough, we wanted to improve upon our design even further and increase down force more. With the 8 attached vanes in strategic placement on the splitter, we were able to reduce lift an addition 64% over the street front splitter with a drag penalty of only 5%!
