    DISCUSS: TDR Radical splitter with R-package lip versus Jet Stream front lip

    DISCUSS: TDR Radical splitter with R-package lip versus Jet Stream front lip for NA Miata.

    * APPEARANCE
    * FUNCTIONALITY

    TDR Radical splitter with R-package lip


    Jet Stream front lip


    Note: I plan to have separate ducts for brake cooling. I will steal GreaseMonkey2000 idea off his old car using aircraft vents. So should I block the bumper lip vents for more effective aero?

    How far back under the car do they go? Those look more aesthetic than functional, really.

    The factory R-pack lip does offer air direction ability for the front brakes that is functional.

    I like the looks of it. I have also been contemplating making 3D printed transitions from the lip openings in the RS Factory Stage NB lip to 2.5" tube for brake cooling duty, guess something similar can be done here. But...do you really need the added cooling?

    I thought the purpose of the bumper lip/splitter was to re-route air over and around the car and not so much underneath. I will have the Beatrush aluminum belly pan under the nose.
    I also thought that by blocking the openings in the bumper lip/splitter would increase the effectiveness. I will install separate brake ducts later as I get into the suspension.

    So my questions should have been.... Which version do you like for visual appeal and can both versions do their functional job effectively.

    I had the BeatRush Panel, or maybe I still do, not sure, either way you'll have to mount the panel first and then the lip spoilers, I was using a GV front lip back then, and the combination of the lip and the panel was very noticeably at highways speeds, the car felt a lot less floaty at 70mph

    Ohh what the heck... I ordered the Jet Stream front lip and the Garage Vary rear panel from Rev9 last night.


    I also got the tail lights rings from RevLimiter.

    I've got one in the garage and I'm pretty sure I got it from you along with a Beatrush rear strut tower brace.

    Did you get the Upgraded REV9 LED lights for the GV tails?
