BMW E36 M3 - Zebulon Carbon Fiber Aero Parts
Does the front of your E36 plow harder than a bulldozer? Then you need a splitter. Specifically, this splitter.
Cars make lift – this is an undeniable fact of life that we all must manage when building a race car. An ideal solution is adding a Zebulon designed and manufactured Front Splitter to counteract lift and generate downforce on the front end of the car. This downforce increases the grip force your tires can generate - both in braking and cornering - increasing your car's overall performance level.
Splitters owe their namesake to how they function; they effectively "split" the air that the car is traveling through. Some travels over the splitter, and some travels under it. This divorced flow then travels slowly over the top of the splitter and quickly underneath it, which creates a pressure differential on the splitter. We take this one step farther with a special profile to maximize this difference; It is this pressure differential that creates a downward load, or downforce! All that science is designed specifically to do one thing: help you go faster on track.
All Zebulon front splitters start with a lightweight foam core cut in-house on our large format CNC machine to maintain the profiles designed into each splitter. After adding internal support structures and mounting hard points, our team hand lays multiple layers of carbon fiber fabric to create a lightweight composite structure with up to 45,000 Psi of tensile and flexural strength (ASTM D790). Our finely tuned proprietary manufacturing process results in a component that is incredibly stiff and strong while being as light as possible. A standard width splitter weighs in at approximately 6-7lbs while being able to withstand over 1500lbs of downforce production with only four mounting points. That's right, no more exposed strut rods, cables, or mounting to your bumper cover!
