The purpose isn't to create a downforce to speak off, it's to help keep the rear window clean.......................from H&A's website:actually, i usually agree with the spoiler on the rear of a FWD is worthless. It seems silly to create downforce on the non drive wheels.....but by the way the E is designed a long enough flat plane extension on the back of the E, might cause enough turbulance to get a little better gas mileage. Unfortunately the length needed to improve the gas mileage significantly would probably look weird but it could be a functional use for a spoiler on our boxes.
could you carbon wrap an OEM style spoiler is you are going for a certain look?
Yes that is mine. I have my all black carbon and should have the orange/black tomorrow or saturday. My main holdup is the resin. With it being a hazmat the shipping is turtle slow. I am chomping at the bit to just get firerglass resin but i know that it isnt the right way so it is killing me to have to wait. There will be pics once the process begins, and if it goes well there will also be some in the center caps of my DR34 black wheels that i replaced the stock SC's with.were you the one that was going to do it an orange and black weave or something like that? I want to see what that looks like, never seen it before, but I like the idea. and I love carbon fiber stuff in general.
Thanks Lizzurd. I was not trying to cause trouble.Lets stay on topic please....Prelud023 asked a legit question here.
Thank you. I completely agree with this. I think we would all like to see some CF on the Element as accents. If you get in touch with someone, AGAIN, try getting the side view mirrors and perhaps the front grille done to match.Does that make it RICE too? Some people on here are very proud of things that i wouldnt necessarily do to my own E but it makes them proud to do something to it and there are others that are inspired by their idea to build something similar or better but that doesnt mean that we sould say "hahaha mine is way better than yours" People on here thatnk others for their idea and if they do make it better say "thanks for the idea, this is what i did with mine" Go ahead, carbon fiber up the wing, i would like to see how it turns out or if someone makes one also.
why not?I don't plan on hitting the drag strip anytime soon ...
Prelud023, not sure if this is going to help, but get a hold of this EOC memeber:
wrmx6. He has CF everything on his E. He doenst have a CF spoiler, but I am
sure he has the knowledge and ability to make one, or point you in the right
If you want a CF tailgate spoiler, go for it!!!
Here is a link to wrmx6's E.
He is looking for a spoiler, not a deflector. They also sell them on the HandA site directly below the product you mentioned. They are painted to match the car and they are designed differently.The purpose isn't to create a downforce to speak off, it's to help keep the rear window clean.......................from H&A's website:
Rear Air Deflector
Genuine Factory Honda Element rear air deflector, does not match vehicle color, designed to contrast, not blend in. painted Gray to match the side steps, rocker panel trim (shown below) and front bumper trim. Aerodynamic design reduces debris build-up on rear window
if everyone was like everyone else, this would be one boring world.............
