Cobra R clearance

Have a 01 cobra front end with the chin spoiler an that's low as it is and I was wondering if anyone had an idea of ground clearance of the cobra R front. The idiot that owned my car before me drove into a ditch and broke the side mount so it hangs out about 1/4 inch and that enough to drive me insane everytime I see it.

I do have h&r race springs so it's lowered.

Re: Cobra R clearance

if your car is lowered its just a matter of time before you shatter it... someone was making a reinforced version out of carbon fiber~ with a metal bottom part to protect it~ but they are 1500 each.

Re: Cobra R clearance

The lower splitter should not be used for DD purposes either. It will literally rip the front bumper apart.

Take a look at the latest cannonball run for evidence of how a front splitter slows down a R for normal use.

I was just curious. Just wondering about the image not necessarily the performance factor. I thought it was to low but wanted a second opinion. I'd rather just replace my 01 cobra I guess

Re: Cobra R clearance

the Factory Cobra R bumper came with zuess fasteners so that you could quickly remove the splitter for street driving

It's just kind of a pain finding a front end that's not a terminator style

You can get the 2001 style without the splitter.
