Lightbulb Homemade Wind Splitter

anyone got a great idea on how to make a homemade wind splitter? aka http://www.speedzonemotorsports.com/...P/P1010019.jpg

the part that goes under the bottom of the front of the car for aerodynamics or something, basically a lip with a purpose, APR sells these for 300$ and just the supports alone are around $50, like hell this needs to be carbon fiber...

any ideas?

everything you need to know is right there in that pic. if you dont wanna pay for a carbon fiber one just make one outta fiberglass.you can use almost anything for the core honeycomb (ala carbonfiber),1/4"finished plywood, hell ive even helped somebody build one with a piece of 1/2" clear plexi glass. the turnbuckles you can get at home depo/ lowes ect.

4" past the bumper is about as far as you wanna go, although, most sanctioning bodies will limit you to around 2"

what are you putting it on btw

However you make the splitter, via plywood coated with fiberglass, etc, make sure you attach the rear of it to a "hard part" of your vehicle, aka the frame, or something that wont be prone to flexing and cracking like some of the bumpers will do. Plus if the splitter is set up ridgid, you will not have any issues with aerodynamic inconsistencies since it'll stay in one place.

For added "tuning" you could make up brackets for the back that work on the same principles as the turnbuckes on the front, so angle could be adjusted if necessary.
