FT-86 SpeedFactory Street / Race Performance Front Splitter - 2013+ BRZ
There are many options on the market for front splitters, however there is a lack of research in terms of aerodynamic performance.
There are many options on the market for front splitters, however there is a lack of research in terms of aerodynamic performance. FT-86 SpeedFactory's street performance splitter underwent many design iterations before the shape was finalized. Each analysis was aided by advanced computer model simulations. Install is very simple as this is made to fit either the FRS or BRZ. Full instructions included along with all hardware. No need to guess and drill like with the APR unit. It doesn't get any easier than this for an install. The street splitter makes downforce, reduces drag, and improves aerodynamic balance. @ 100mph Drag Force Decrease: 1 lb Total Downforce Increase: 43 lbs Front Downfroce Increase: 23 lbs Rear Downforce Increase: 20 lbs Aerodynamic Balance: 40/60 Very few companies perform CFD or wind tunnel analysis on any of their aerodynamic pieces. As a consumer you can rest assure that you are receiving a quality component with an engineering analysis that has proven to benefit the vehicles characteristics.

R&D Video Optional Race Upgrade FT-86 SpeedFactory's Race Upgrade for the street front splitter increases downforce and structural rigidity. The street front splitter was designed for those who want an aggressive aesthetic upgrade, a more planted feel, and slightly better fuel economy while at highway speeds. However, at 100 MPH and beyond, the splitter begins to see triple digit loads and the necessity to support the leading edge of the splitter begins to become apparent. For reference, at 100 MPH, our CFD analysis showed that the race splitter is being subjected to 150 pounds of downforce, evenly spread across the leading edge of the splitter. While improving the rigidity of the leading edge of the splitter is enough, we wanted to improve upon our design even further and increase downforce more. With the 8 attached vanes in strategic placement on the splitter, we were able to reduce lift an addition 64% over the street front splitter with a drag penalty of only 5%! These vanes use a basic principle of fluid dynamics (Bernoulli’s Principle) that states as you increase velocity, pressure must decrease. When this reduction in pressure is on the bottom side of the car, downforce is achieved. Both the vanes and the placement of vanes were tested a multitude of times before we found the winning combination.
