Re: Why Body Kits Don\'t Make You Fast

Mugen and Bomex are the only two manufacturer's of body kits that wind tunnel test them to functionally reduce the percentage of drag on a car. Mugen test's their kits on full scale car's and Bomex on scaled versions. All other body kit manufacturer's are for style and appearance since they have no R&D to show performance gains. This is why Mugen is so expensive. Their product's are the real deal so you get what you pay for.

Re: Why Body Kits Don\'t Make You Fast

Let me clear something up; For some reason, "ATTITUDE" is sold to Honda owners in my area when they buy body kits. When the silver Honda pulled up against that WRX, a guy behind me in the stands was talking how that Honda was going to smoke the WRX. "Awe, sheot...man we got this intake on and spent $1500 on those lite ass wheels so he's gonna walk on that black car." OWNED

Re: Why Body Kits Don\'t Make You Fast

Well the current kit that is on my car is very helpful when driving above 100mph. It pulls the front end down rather nicely. The rear wing seems to help a little. As for the front lip it really does provide downforce in the front very well.
