Anyone running with this set up in the UK?
Just spotted a car over on Rennlist which looks pretty cool, if you ignore the aggressive rear camber. I think he's running the Aero Kit side skirts too - which appear to carry the front splitter's lines around well...









A nice change from the norm - apologies Illuminati Smile.
Thoughts?

Nice looking car and the front splitter does look good but not keen on the side skirts personally.

I've been looking for a NB Front Splitter for some time and the only one I like is the now NLA Cargraphic item.

Here's a pic of one on a forum members car.

Yep, these side skirts sometimes look a little awkward but I think on this particular car, work well. Maybe due to the front splitter combo.

I also like the Cargraphic one you posted, it's like a 'completed' version (i.e. with centre section!) of the OEM AeroKit splitter below:



Overall I also prefer the NB bumper due to the horizontal slats - reminds me of the 959 Smile - but the Guards Red car with the WB bumper just sits so well.

Now that's gone and done it, just when I thought I'd finished spending for a while, now I need a front splitter, lower the car, new bbs wheels & wrap it in black

How much is that going to cost me?

As far as I'm aware the gap in the front of the RS/Aerokit splitter was to balance the effect of the rear wing. There is a 3 piece rubber spoiler not often seen which fits a few inches behind the leading edge and is part of the aerokit. Aesthetically the full width splitter does look better. Interestingly on the 944 I fitted a front splitter and it made the car feel much more stable in cross winds but you can feel the rear moving on the 993. The car in OP has a lot of rear neg and looks over tyred unless it's just set up for oval racing. I was at Daytona 24hr a few years ago with a friend in his GT3 RS running loads of rear neg as it was the only way to get to 180mph on the banked section. Result a blow out caused by overheated inner edge which took out the brake line, bet he will just have to change the rear tyres more often.
