So lemme get this straight.

This isn't the "actual" SRT8 OEM spoiler , but rather a third-party version of the spoiler. Correct?

Don't they sell the OEM version of this spoiler as well?

I just want to be clear on this.

the OEM spoiler, like all factory body parts, is mega dollars ($400.00), and comes unpainted. This is a high quality copy of the SRT-8 design, painted to match DCX body colour - and it is half the price.

It also is functional. Creates up to 35% more downforce at speed.

NR,

Don't misunderstand me. I'm not "dissing" the cheaper spoiler. I just want people to be understand what they are ordering is all.

It's all good.:)

And that "35% downforce" stat. Where you getting that? I know that it has been stated that the OEM version gives you this. But can you be sure that "this" version has been tested and gives the same downforce results? Or are you assuming it does, because it looks similar?

JFF:D

Good point re: the aftermarket spoiler. BTW, there are at least 5 or 6 different AM spoilers out there. The SRT-8 style is the best, IMO.

Just my assumption on the downforce, as it is a direct copy and positioned on the car in the same way. The downforce figures come from SRT-8 info. Should produce the same result.

Good question Lexball. As your car moves faster through the air, the shape of the car tends to act like an airplane wing and create lift (upforce). This makes your car "lighter" . This is not good, as the tires lose grip on the road surface. This can lead to loss of full steering, braking, and cornering ability.

A rear spoiler, properly designed and postioned on the car, "spoils" the air flow, reducing the lift, and actually generating some downforce without creating too much drag.

Does it make your car go faster? No, it doesn't. The potential top speed on the 300C is about 155 mph. If you were able to turn off the electronic speed limiter and drive the 300C all the way up to that speed, you would find the car unstable and very "scary" to drive. Add the spoiler, and the car stays planted on the ground. I find the 300C gets light at speeds over 90 mph.

The spoiler may also have the added advantage of keeping the vertical trunk section cleaner. I'm not certain about that, but on my C without a spoiler, it gets real dirty there. Also the spoiler makes a great grab handle for closing the trunk. Makes you kind of wonder how you ever got along without one! :D

Orders, please.

You are not in until you have placed your order through our site or called me to order one. I have one person from this forum so far. I have a few others from elsewhere so we are almost there.
