Ended up getting a new bumper to test out.

 

Was looking to add more of a traditional lip to increase downforce.  Noticed the car from SPE running the same bumper and all fo the crazy stuff they have been doing to that time attack car.

 

here is one of the earlier pics, its seems the car has gone thru a couple iterations since then.

The bumper seems to be made the same as my Top-secret one, that is fiberglass with carbon accents added.  The bottom lip that comes with it seems to be a nice carbon piece thats pretty stiff with included reinforcement bars.

From what my mechanic said the back side looks to need some trimming to fit my car.  

 

The type -2 is for the DRL and circuit spec is for the longer lip and bar.

 

Here are some pics of the back side of the bumper and my APR lip waiting to be installed.

 

the canards are also like my Top-secret ones, these thick wet/carbon pieces.

 

The only downside is there is a bit of a lip still so wonder how this is all going to go together with the APR lip.

 

The plan is to have the APR on for track days and the "stock" Phoenix power for drag

still working on it...they are doing some rerouting of the IC piping to make it short route and have to relocate the dry sump filler neck somehow.

The turnbuckle rods in the front and the aircraft cables on the sides should be sufficient, as long as the splitter itself is sufficiently reinforced (honeycomb core, etc.).
