Custom front Bar , whos done it?
« on: May 30, 2010, 11:12PM »

Hi again being a post whore this month, has anyone gone the custom front bar path? If you have post up some pics,

After searching the net u12's with custom kits are rare as, I am about to get jetspeed on board for a front bar im thinking AE86 Drift style might suit??

opinions?

I'd agree with your selection there... AE86 stuff looks the right style and shape, or N14 ones.

Do something functional with the front bar, do a low front splitter and canards on the sides, should help your understeer issues on the track.

Yea I was going to go carbon fibre canards and duct the air from the front up into the radiator and im working on a carbon fibre rear splitter at the moment cos I hate spoilers, do you know who made the lip for the rnu12 bar or is it an overseas pic?

Standard bar looks pretty sweet when done right!



I may be a bit biased.

it's a big bar, with a big low overhang...
makes the local mc'ds drive thru a challenge but i love it.
used to have a mazda type bumper, uber ugly and no room for i/c piping.
