Another car with the cut out front fender flares.

I’m increasing the fender flares on my junker 1.25 inches each side, might consider this for laughs.

I am not at the car just now - Sytill in Annapolis - preparing for a Blue Water Brokerage show. Hope to pass along our veerable saing home to new owners.

Meanwhile, that is what I plan to do with the rear of my front clip - at least the lower half. You can see how the splitter dam separates in the front, well the back of the fender will be cut away similarly.


A lot of the Speed Hunters do as well.

Cheers - Jim

It’s coming along! I see a lot of sanding in your future.

I was thinking, a c2 or c3 with sidepipe exhaust could run an L-shaped “heat shield” to get side skirt splitter effects.

If done right, might not look bad.

Mfain mentioned the C8R exhaust to blow above the diffuser to aid downforce.

This talks about a blown diffuser as creating boundary layer control, for an F1 this could mean above or inside the diffuser.

I think the c8r is more like a jet ejector effect, but lowering pressure at the exit lip would impact the boundary layer, but not like injection.
