Downforce has been in business for years manufacturing and selling quality carbon fiber aerodynamic pieces for track and car enthusiasts worldwide. Downforce occupies a building in Southern California and manufactures their own carbon pieces in house using epoxy compression molded in 2x2 twill and carbon kevlar, as well as supply vendors with their exclusive parts. Should items sell through fast, not to worry, lead time is 1-2 days on most parts (not months). These pieces are front to back in carbon, no frp used. Fitment is guaranteed to be spot on and uses factory hardware. Downforce used my car to prototype the pieces and was able to get them ready for the recent time attack event May 30th. They have graciously allowed me to introduce these pieces to nagtroc guys at a special price


Without further delay, here are the images and pricing- These prices are exclusive through me, so pm me on details on how to purchase with intro pricing. More info on the company can be found here www.downforceusa.com

UPDATE 0.5 (Brake ducts close but not all the way there) 6/8/10

This week will be the week Downforce finishes the brake ducts. They simply wanted it perfect so there's been a slight delay. By this Sunday June 13th, the brake ducts along with pricing, rear valence spats, and a couple of items that they want to keep under the lid will be finished
update 1.0 to come

I do have some pics of items that are off car and how they look as they are being shipped.

Front Lip- this one was being prepped for matte




Headlight trim



Spoiler lip- notice the groove for 3M tape so the lip sits flush with wing



Rear exhaust shields


Front Grill




complete

Update 1.00
Rear spats completed 6/19/10 and available now!

Thanks Jaykkub for letting us use your vehicle for the photos of the Downforce rear spats-

The pair of rear spats are available now and compliments the sides and fronts, completing the add on pieces. The rear spats install with factory mount (we doubled up 3m double stick tape and the factory plastic expanding plugs). No holes cut, completely reversible should one decide to go back to stock.









Brake Ducts- Comes 4 pieces to the kit, 2 CF "scoops attached to inner fender liner and 2 lip recessed scoops into the backside of the lip
Holes can be enlarged depending on how extreme one wants to get. There is some minor blockage on the passenger side with the holes precut from downforce from A/C lines, but the area can be enlarged for better cooling effect.

I'm loving the matte look! I saw the parts in person (on Kenny's car) earlier today and the workmanship looks really excellent. I already have a few parts on order and I'll have some pics posted once I get them all installed.

Can't wait to get that rear lip spoiler! Been wanting something to break up all the white on my car

Nice looking pieces. Good match on the exhaust shields to your Wald diffuser as well.

Nice stuff,and nice prices. What are the details on the functional ram air duct for the splitter? How can you get air to cool the brakes? Pictures without it installed on the car would be nice to see how the ducts are made.

is this wet carbon? they look nice.

Hand Hood Automotive tire Gesture Automotive design
Motor vehicle Gas Machine Automotive tire Auto part


you will then need something to guide the air to the brakes after this (like the spec-v has).

Are there plans to make a rear valence/lower sill? I know you have the wald rear diffuser. I think it would complete the look. From the side shot, having the rear painted in silver doesnt complete the cars look of the side sills in carbon fiber of the front lip in carbon fiber.

Thanks for the great feedback so far- I am extremely happy with the car and the parts made for it. All the carbon pieces held up perfectly in 140-150mph at Auto Club Speedway

looks good, got any pics of that rear wing lip from the side?
I will have more pics today- especially pics of the items off the car
