Front splitters are very effective at producing front end downforce without increasing drag significantly. They do this by creating a large pressure delta between the top and bottom surfaces. We then properly sized the splitter based on the rear wing and a proper aero balance to ensure reduced lap times.
The splitter is produced from a carbon thermoplastic, which is the same material used in high forms of Motorsports. The material is not brittle, so no more issues with cracking like carbon fiber and ABS. It will not grab and bend under the car like aluminum units either. It is a great splitter material that abrades and takes a beating without reducing performance or appeal.

Front splitters, when designed properly, greatly increase front end grip and this is the case with our splitter and the 718 GT4. Utilizing state-of-the-art analysis software, we were able to extract more performance from the front splitter, air dam, and diffuser combo through an iterative design process. We were also able to properly size the front splitter and dive planes to counteract the rear wing and diffuser; creating a safe and effective aero balance.
The front splitter is part of our Ventus 2 Kit for the Porsche 718 GT4. The Ventus 2 kit boosts downforce significantly from the factory vehicle. The goal was to create a package that dramatically improved the aerodynamic performance from a factory 718 GT4 in a safe and balanced package for the typical track/HPDE enthusiast. Another goal was to retain street-ability from the aerodynamic components; with reasonable front splitter stick out and rear wing widths.
