I was wondering about this too after watching a japanese tuning video where they lifted up a ferarri and showed the underbody spoiler and how efficient it was. I think the only way to actually get one for our cars would be to make one custom.

exactly what is it??:confused:
well, it's a huge piece of fiberglass that goes under the car and is shaped to create a wind tunnel and pull the car down to the ground, it's just a spoiler but it goes under your car so the faster you go the more downforce keeps your car stable

well, the only place i ever even heard of it was on the ferrari mondeo so i don't think there is really a market for it yet, one could probably be custom made though

uh, right you wanna put a underbody spoiler for what? You hardly ever drive over 100mph, these things are for 180+mph cars, you wanna put one on an altima? WTF

well that's a good point but i wouldn't go so far to say 180... over 100mph is more like it. It's no secret our cars have issue's with downforce and high speed stability, i'm sure over 120mph something like this would help keep the car going straight and stuck to the ground pretty well

I've done 120mph and the car was fine, I just don't see the point, how often are you gonna drive at 120mph, one or twice, and for a couple of seconds. Way to blow a couple of hundred

I think we are talking about 2 different thing. The underbody spoiler is like an accessory on some cars. I have seen it on Honda's and Toyota's before. Am I saying it with a different name?

you must be talking about a front lip, or spoiler(even though it doesn't create any downforce)

Stillen makes one for the 2nd gen

The Lexus LS 430 has something like that to keep drag down. You would be amazed by the drag coef. on it.

Yeah it does seem like a waste of money to me to put one on an Altima.

I hit that God Honest probably every to every other day, and sometimes for 5-10 minutes 15 max!
