actually there are no splitters on that lip.. splitters usually flare out the sides...

anyways, ive seen this lip "add-on" on an integra also. and it looks TOO NICE... it *might* be universal and fit on anything, but im not sure.. its adjustable as u can tell by those 2 metal things that hold it.. hold on let me search for the pic of it on the integrA!

i am still confused ......

the only thing that flares out the sides of a bumper or lip would be the canards ???

no...a spliter doesn't have to flare out on the side...and yes the wing things on the side of the bumper are canards...

the whole point of a spliter is for added downforce on the front end of the car when on the track...and to allow less air from going under the body of the car which results in lift (turbulence under the car)...

that's why you see race cars with real low front bumpers (spliters) and with real low side skirts...late

That is one badass Integra (the one w/ the bronze wheels, not the chrome)

yeah splitters create more downforce as sjracer said, thus having a reduction in lift... (lift=really bad in a racecar, I'm sure you've seen F1 cars have the nose rise and then flip over out of no where)

our cars don't go fast enough to generate that much lift nor are they light enough for it to really matter, but it does create more downforce than any other lip spoiler can... they're more functional over fashion... since most of them are just flat pieces that stick out of the bumper...

lets stop talking about what they are and what they do.. and start discussing where i can get one for my rsx :B

i think it looks PIMP.. ive always seen cars with splitters to be damn intimidating. most of the splitters ive seen sit about 3 inches off the ground..
