It's actually a Corvette Creations C wing in carbon fiber Pete(QuikZ06) hooked me up with.. Same exact thing as Caravaggio as Sneaky mentioned, minus the fiberglass and price
I left some of the CF exposed...

Looks good either way, but to take it up a notch you need to pull the wheels off and address those rotor hats and calipers.

Hey, I just noticed you're lowered a good amount, and not running the lower spoilers. Did you notice any cooling issues because of that? Mine scrape all the time now since lowering, and I'd love to remove them.

I had just the center piece of mine missing for a short while (thanks to an off road excursion ) and even with that I saw a significant increase. It was somewhere in the 15-20 degree range around town. WAY more than I would have expected. As a point of reference, this was in the summer heat of Virginia Beach.

In the response above, I do concede that if you wanted to run the fans essentially all of the time it would probably bridge the gap but you are risking cycle time issues on the motors and need to keep a close eye on them if you do that.

Those fan motors tend to get angry if you run them for long periods of time.

I have been running my car like this for 3 years and my temps dont get over 220 witch is 8 degrees cooler the when the stock tune tells the fans to come on..and i know you said something about the fans not like n it by running all the time and they dont all the time but look at it like this you a/c fan run most of the time you have you a/c going so i dont see much of a difference... but i am working on a top block off plate... to see if i can get it to cool better..
