The ducktail is a little difficult to see in the middle of that Erector Set on the back of the FD with the Pantera Ducktail.

I think the part is very well thought out. It is a replacement for the original center section, so it mounts positively (no tape or drilling) and looks fairly stock. Its not really a ducktail spoiler the way the term is used in that it doesn't have a lip to it that catches the airflow and pushes the rear end down. It probably has no measurable aerodynamic impact at all, though it could add 1 mph from being a bit more slippery.

I just took my Spirit R wing off my car and its naked right now, but I'm designing my own duck tail spoiler for it. But, if my design doesn't work or look right, I should probably get one of these and see what I think of it. (Hopefully, if I end up staying naked, somebody here will want a slightly used wing for less than retail.)

Off the side it looks good, but from behind it kinda looks off just because the lip does not range throughout the whole bumper, it's like a big bump in the middle, but who am I to talk when I have a bumper that looks like a screaming fish...LOL..

I'm about 3 hours from their shop. If you bought it directly from them it would be $468. I could even ask if they'd be willing to setup a group buy for a discounted price.

Best case scenario I could arrange a large shipment of these back to America. Group buy would certainly be the best. Just stack them all up in one container. Let me know if you guys are interested in anything like this.

I'd realy like to see more pictures from different angles against a white backdrop, like a garage door? Looks interesting still.

The idea appeals to me i think radius is too short. Makes it look too pointy.

Really not that bad (IMO). Do they make it in matching black plastic to the tail lights or is CF the only option? I personally think that matching plastic would look better.

not too fond of the carbon fiber, I think it would look better w/ matching plastic and the loss of the center brake light kind of sucks, then again just IMO

It actually looks nice, but the simple fact that a 3rd taillight delete is necessary detracts me from the idea.

I'm pretty sure it's not legal to do so (not to mention safety purposes) and with stringent CA law on modified vehicles, I'd rather not call any more attention to myself.

It actually looks much better than I expected though, +1 for more pics in better lighting.
