    Sure. From what I understand, the iges is required if you want to actually manipulate objects in solidworks right?

    Instead of modeling, how about measuring? Mount this little sucker just behind the front mesh or just under the car at various locations and see what the airspeed velocity really is. If you really wanted to you could run a section of brake duct and cut it off before it gets to the brake and afix this to a piece of hardpipe attached at the end of the brake duct and measure the velocity where you most care about. It goes up to 56 m/s (or about 125 mph), hooks up to your i-phone, it is cheap, and gives you real data without the modeling error. Doesn't accomplish the modeling of the whole car but would more than suffice for detecting high pressure areas where you could put cooling ducts.

    Willy, I think your design would be great for the track. But this type of splitter would be more practical for the street. Anyone know this car or where the splitter came from?

    Important question how many people would be interested and how much would you pay for it

    Just purchased 0028 from Jack in the Reno area. Love the car! Looking to protect the front clam in dips. Any suggestions?options?
    Thank you all! Impressive work Willy!

    Rossion made (?still makes?) a front clam protector. It is ABS or similar plastic that fits contour of undersurface of front bumper. Not really a splitter, but you could easily mock one up with a lip if desired. It just screws on to the existing screws on undersurface. The front clam comes off really easy. Dont bother trying anything with clam on car. Just release the two cotter pins holding rotation pins and slide pins out. Unclip front wiring harness and just lift clam off and flip onto a blanket or similar. It's light, my wife can easily help me.

    You could probably make a protector from stock ABS sheet, approx 3/8" thick.

    The real issue is how low front may be. In the end I also raised up front by adjusting collars on front springs equally. You'll need a set of Koni or similar wrenches to do this easily. Yes, my car rides a little high for 'looks', but rarely scrapes now. I do use my car as a daily driver so this was a big deal for me.

    Iíll try getting in touch with Jason at Rossion. See if he can get me one directly from them. If not Iíll have to mock something up. Thanks for the info and ideas! Appreciate it!
