Product Description

6mm thick, high performance carbon fibre panel designed to be fitted to any road-going car with an appropriate front spoiler/bumper. The Universal Front Splitter is a very effective aerodynamic enhancement for your vehicle which can considerably increase front downforce and reduce drag by smoothing the airflow around and under your front spoiler.

Front splitters of this variety have their roots in touring car, DTM and GT use but there is no reason why the same aerodynamic benefits cannot be gained by a wide variety of modified road-cars including Mitsubishi, Subaru, Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen, Ford, in fact just about any track-focused car.

How is the splitter universal?

Because of the huge range of OEM and aftermarket front bumpers/spoilers that are on the road, even across one car model, we provide our front splitter oversize and include all necessary tools and instructions to cut it to the perfect size to match the profile of any front spoiler.

Technical details

The splitter itself is a sheet of ultra-lightweight, high performance carbon fibre sandwich panel. To provide the required stiffness at the lightest weight possible, the splitter uses a combination of genuine 2/2 twill 3k carbon fibre, closed-cell PVC foam core and E-Glass cured at pressure and temperature using an epoxy resin matrix.

Supporting the splitter at the front are high performance adjustable stainless steel tie-bars with omni-direction fixings allowing them to be fitted at almost any angle.

Simplified fitting instructions

Basically, the splitter is installed as follows:

  1. Use the cardboard packaging that the splitter kit comes in to create a cutting template for the splitter by positioning it under your front bumper and following the bumper line with a pen to copy it onto the cardboard.
  2. Cut out the cardboard template and offer it up to the vehicle, adjusting as necessary.
  3. Position the template on the splitter blank (the uncut carbon fibre panel) and scribe round it onto the panel.
  4. Cut the panel with a hacksaw and then smooth the edges with production paper. Finish the front edge of the splitter by gluing the edging strip to it.
  5. Position the splitter under the front bumper, secure with clamps then drill the rear fixing points and fix using the supplied bolts and washers.
  6. Decide on the best position for the front tie-bars then mark and drill the top fixing points. Bolt articulated bushes to your bumper.
  7. Align and drill the lower mounting points into the splitter panel and screw the tie-bars to the splitter.
  8. Tighten your splitter using the adjustment on the tie-bars to ensure and strong and secure fitment.
Choosing the Right Size
How to find out what size splitter panel you need

Due to the high cost of carbon fibre, we offer our universal splitter kit in two sizes. The size relates to the depth of the splitter panel blank. Knowing which size you will need for your car is very easy.

Use a tape measure to measure the depth of your front spoiler from the front of the curve to the back of the side returns. Add approx 70mm to that measurement and buy the smallest blank that you can get away with.

All blanks measure 1980mm wide which is wide enough even for the track of supercars such as Porsches, Ferraris and Ultimas (shown pictured). The blank is available in 2 depths; 490mm and 990mm deep. Choose the size you need from the drop-down list above.

Safety Disclaimer

As with any modification to your vehicle, installation of the universal front splitter should be done by a competent installer in compliance with prevailing road safety legislation in your country/region. If in doubt, consult a local vehicle body-shop.

When using the flexible carbon fiber sheets do you need to apply any special finish to the surface? It will be used outside, how would I apply the UV coat? Thanks!
Carbon Mods Reply: The flexible sheets don't need any IV coating. They use a polymer not an epoxy resin so they're not susceptable to sun damage. The splitter (shown on this page) has a UV resistant gel coat so it won't fade or damage either.

I Bought this splitter for my Evo VI, When it landed I was really impressed with the sheet it's light as hell and cuts to shape like it was balsa wood! my mate runs an APR one (I Had to go one better!), his is dead floppy with fibre glass on the back. good to see the brits getting it right! I It did take a while to work-out the best way to fit it, not really helped by the fact that they had missed out the instructions! (that's why it got 4 stars not 5!) but top marks for customer service Paul guided me through the fit and I got there in the end! I've been running it for a few weeks now, I bought it cuz I thought it would finish off the front end, but honestly you CAN feel the difference the turn-in is miles better... can't wait to hit the track again!
