Im looking for every way to shave time of my 1/4 mile time. I have herd that a front spliter will help but im not sure how true that is.... any input?
lol, he was asking a serious question, wait till someone gives an answer before you make fun of himLouvers add 15hp to our stangs!
You're tipping into my career. Aerodynamics.lol, he was asking a serious question, wait till someone gives an answer before you make fun of him
and to the OP, I think a front air splitter or a ram air hood would help. you'd have to either
1) make the car more aerodynamic ( I have no clue how)
2) make more downforce (the front air splitter)
He is talking exterior mods as far as aero Ronnie lolWhat have you already done as far as performance Mod's?
List them out so someone can answer your question on what to do to get your time lower.
What axle ratio?
Automatic or Manual?
These are some of the things that are needed to know before anybody can advise you on what else you would need.
Also, How much $$$$ do you want to spend?
What are you turning now?
+1 exactly. Dude aerodynamics and downforce wont help you in the quater mile which is why this is a silly questionJato bottles Unless you are going to redesign the front of your car not much will help in a quarter mile. Splitters and Spoilers are there for down force. Down force also creates a different kind of drag, thus possibly slowing you down in the 1/4.
Lowered Stance might help some, but since you are worried about 1/4 mile you want to also keep the back as low as possible for good weight transfer.
The biggest thing to do is weight reduction, no jack or spare, remove the back seat, and then you might be talking a couple of tenths and a mile per hour or 2 in the trap.
You are still pushing a Brick through the air.
TrueExcuse me if I'm wrong and I don't mean to sound like a dick, but we all know we drive v6's, not Super Snakes, right? There's only so much aerodynamics can do for a car that (while stock) can only produce a little over 300 hp. Besides, we're not driving our cars like Vaughn Griffin or Ken Block who can actually benefit from the exterior mods.
My point is that in most cases, exterior mods are for the physical appearance of our beautiful cars, not to gain horsepower.
