Default Side Splitters + Wash = Pictures

Ignore my lack of tire shine and my huge pics



Hate the front plate but the holes came with the car.



So far, side splitters, fixed the pony, smoked rears, GT500 Axlebacks, and some shift knob that everyone harassed me about Not bad for 3 mos. By March I should be tuned + Airraid.

DIB always looks great. The side splitters add a real finish to the lower half.

That looks awesome I have been considering adding them to my DIB CS. Since it comes with the boss front splitter I have always thought these would like good with it. I think you just pushed me over the edge car looks GREAT! thanks for sharing

You have a beautiful Mustang but what are the purpose of the side splitters? It's an honest question. They look like running boards to me.

The main goal of side skirts is to create an area of low pressure between the car and the track, generating increasing pressure as the car increases in speed making the car stick to the road. Lots of different aids have been designed around this area, including side skirts to increase downforce.
These are a way of channeling the cars low pressure to the rear of the car and directing it to the rear diffuser. It also prevents high pressure air from around the car interfering with the low pressure air underneath the car. Linked closely to the performance of the whole aerodynamic package.
Colin Chapman is the founder and designer of Lotus and also the pioneer of Ground Effects in modern motor racing. In 1972 he designed the radical Lotus 72, featuring shovel nose cone in the shape of a wedge, also the radiators were located in the sidepods. Winning both drivers and constructors championships titles that Year. This lead to the Lotus 78, with true side skirt introduction, creating a vacuum effect, sucking the car onto the floor with higher speeds. This lead to another World Driver champion shipped with the driver Mario Andretti.

I found this explaination. I doubt if the side splitter on the mustang has this kind of effect but adds looks.

I came from a 4+ inch drop on my last car and Houston roads are sh*t... I'm going to enjoy it while I can since it's my daily but I'll probably do a 1-1.25 soon unless I spring for one of these crazy air suspensions I've seen floating around

Also, I honestly didn't notice them until I did some reading.
