That's with their normal mounting system... my question was about using the battle aero chassis mount brackets with the verus one. This bracket attaches further forward on the splitter and is much more rigid than their mounting system. It might still allow too much flex at the very front though.

As an update, it's still on the car. I've gotten it wet as well and so far no issues or sagging. Battle Aero did end up sending me hardware for the winglets, but I had already purchased hardware to move the project forward.

Advice, keep the washer fluid tank unbolted and out of the way longer than you think you should. lol I ended up uninstalling it twice bc I moved too fast. I left the inner fender wells installed on my car and cut small slits in the liner for the outer brackets to mount through. I painted the exposed part of the wood with a black paint marker, looks 10x better.

I hope it is not actually ABS, even if it is an abs composite. ABS is horrible with UV and chemicals. It is especially prone to being eaten by glycol based fluids.

So you just took off the plastic covering all together (the one that comes in a roll) and painted the exposed sides?

I used that across the leading front edge. Painted everywhere else, like the sides and the rear of it that's in front of the wheels.

Hey Alex that is your old car!

I've been putting it to good use. Finally, was able to start doing 86cup events this year~

As for Modinfinite, we are a legit company. We are a dealer of Battle Aero Products and have been promoting their new splitter as someone stated.

We also carry many more products from most of the popular aftermarket car companies.

It's been easier for me to talk to customers through FB so I've been mainly using Messenger to address customer concerns etc.

However, I will try to be more active on the forums!

If anyone has any further questions please let me know! Thanks guys.

-Josh
Modinfinite Sales.
