Next up were Verus’s splitter end plates. These bolt to the leading edge of the wheel well opening and deflecting air that would hit the tire, causing drag and pressurizing the wheel well which causes front lift. They also act as a stagnation trap to increase the pressure on top of the splitter to create more downforce. Furthermore, they also help generate and reinforce the side vorticites created by the canards.
To install the endplates, you remove the push pins that hold the plastic fender liner in place and replace them with riv-nuts. Then you can bolt the endplates in with some button head allen bolts. The only, thing we didn’t like is that the end plates are made of dry pre-preg and have a matt finish that doesn’t match the glossy carbon on the rest of the car and the other Verus parts.
Our splitter is more narrow than the Verus splitter so we made these extensions for the sides of the splitter from some carbon fiber plates we bought off of ebay that is supposed to be for making RC car chassis.
We stuck the plates to the top of our splitter with 3M automotive grade double stick tape and then bolted the endplates to the extension plate.
