    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I'm in current production of an aero kit for my Challenger Hellcat. We are making 2 sets... One for the SEMA show to match the tri-coat black paint and another set for racing that will be matte black. Here are some renderings so far. We will most likely make some am changes to the rear defuser. Please provide any feedback you think may be helpful! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Do you think the rear diffuser will push the rear down more and give it better traction? The launch is the beatch! If it can help with the launch, that's the key. Anxious to hear how testing goes.

    Are you going to test in a wind tunnel to see if it reduces turbulence at speed?

    Good question tho aero dynamic effects Only become noticeable at speed.
    my advice would be to make a 3 peice kit. The third to join both front and back making a full under plate.

    Thanks for advice. That's exactly what we're doing. CRZY Engineering is currently doing that work as we speak.

    We are also going to be putting a piece to cover the rear tires by the door to reduce turbulence.

    Nice you could build down force ducts that tie into the rear defuser

    I hear that CF Front Splitters are somewhat dangerous because if you run track days with it installed, and go off the side and dig in or hit an apex bump and end up scrapping the splitter (which I have already done), then the CF material will splinter and could cause body damage. Have you heard this to have some truth behind it? Reason I ask is because I prefer the look of the CF and wanted to do the same on mine, but was talked out of it for the above stated reason.

    Thanks,

    HC

    Nope, haven't heard about this, but then again I haven't been on the drag strip with my cat....

    I am referring to Road Track (not drag). Also, I don't believe splitters should be installed if you're looking to run fast 1/4 miles. So they aren't good additions for drag runs or if you're looking to get a better 0-60 time. However, they are great for road tracks and serve a purpose. If you dont plan on doing either, then the CF splitter should be fine (other than it may not be forgiving if you hit one of those parking spot concrete "stoppers"). I've hit a few with mine (which is metal), and have only had the bend once. It was an easy fix...
