Optional internally mounted splitter rods are included! If you intend to do endurance racing or hit tracks that go regularly above 140mph, installing our splitter rods are highly recommended. Splitter rods help distribute load on the the splitter mounts to other parts of the chassis giving the necessary support to handle the increased loads on the high speed race tracks. These rods require drilling into the crash bar. Without the splitter rods, the splitter can be operated at speeds below 140mph.
The front splitter is constructed from pre-pregnated carbon fiber with a matte or glossy twill finish. Pre-pregnated carbon fiber ensures maximum strength and stiffness with minimal weight by avoiding excess resin during the manufacturing process. The carbon fiber sheet is then water cut to our drawings to ensure a perfect fit with your vehicle. It is stiff enough for high speeds yet flexible enough to take a beating. Should the splitter take too much damage, replacement splitter sheets are available. The two front diffusers are also created from carbon fiber formed to fit nicely on the GT4. Fits on 981 Caymans with front GT4 bumper conversions. *Wheel fender trimming required.*
Main mounting brackets are made from stainless steel sheetmetal ensuring maximum strength and stiffness. Brackets are powder coated black for durability and great looks even though they are hidden away after installation. Splitter rods are made of billet aluminum and have steel rod ends.
Real Downforce, Real Value
Each DBJ product goes through several rigorous design phases. Starting from scratch, we collect high accuracy scanned data from cars to ensure great fitment. Data is then processed and models and designs are created using CAD software. Prototyping using 3D rapid prototyping printers are used to confirm scans and fitment. Sometimes we are able to print out entirely functional parts for road and track testing.
Initial designs are tested using both finite element analysis (FEA) and computation fluid dynamics (CFD). Both these methods require several iterations to ensure proper performance and optimization of DBJ parts.
Finally once the design is completed, we test our prototypes on the street and track! Thoroughly test driving our products helps ensure that our customers have nothing but the best experiences when it comes to installation and performance results.
