Splitters

Do any of you veteran racers use splitters on the front or rear? Where can I find a set?

Any other aero advice would be appreciated?

I've never heard of, nor read of a rear splitter.

I know I've read about a few ITS RX7's using splitters on the front. The ones I've seen I think are called ISC splitters. They are usually on the very high end ITS cars that I've read about.

There is a tech article about the effectiveness of spliters at the bottom of the race section you should check out. ISC builds splitters only for FC's as far as I know. My It-s car will be getting a home made splitter soon, as they arent very complicated to build. most "high end" Its race splitter are just simple molded fiberglass, or a plywood board attached by some spacers.

most of the race cars iv'e seen use a piece of 3/8" plywood, painted black. wood is light, stiff, and cheap. the ricers will laugh at it, but anything that hangs that low is going to be ruined, and the air doesnt care what it's passing over.
