    Guys you are apparently missing the purpose of this diffuser. I a, making it simply because there are none that are affordable/ quality pieces on the market. Yes, the main purpose of this piece is aesthetic, but I designed it for as much function as possible bases off other diffuser designs on other makes of cars.

    Impreza 2.0: this is an aesthetic piece that was deigned to still try to be as functional as possible. Stainless is unneeded weight added outward of the wheels. Yes if hit by road debris it will prolly be damaged, but so would a 1/16th stainless unit as well. That's a given, stainless is all expensive and harder to keep in shape when welding, because of the heat. With a mold and carbon fiber or fiberglass the same shape is kept in every piece. There is also no spt diffuser currently available on the market for the 11-13 wrx/sti

    11blackwrx: in the post you quoted I stated it is located in the members car gallery part of the forum. I will not link it directly because I'm pretty sure it's not allowed on here. It may be on the second page by now.

    Teflon-jones: this is MAINLY an aesthetic piece, but is not PURELY an aesthetic piece. When drawing up my designs I looked at other diffuser designs that were functional and wind tunnel tested and made by reputable companies to look for inspiration. My deign is close to the varis diffuser available for the 11-13 wrx/sti, and I like to think they know what they are doing when they designed theirs. People were wanting a more aggressive design to compliment the already aggressive lines of the gr and I feel like I have delivered that without going to over the top with the design. If I had just kept it inboard of the exhaust, that I basically would have been making a replica of the ht autos version 1 diffuser, and we all know how good that loks( sarcasm intended).

    If you don't have a wind tunnel and the boffins to test it, your piece is purely for looks.

    Your right it is an aesthetic piece. But I tried to implement as much functional design into it without being able to test it as I could. Idk why y'all are insisting its an aesthetic piece, I have admitted it is.

    I think it looks great. If you're really that worried about downforce and functionality, I would recommend buying a full undertray diffuser. Props to laextreme5 for seeing a need in the market, making a sketch, and doing it himself to make it a reality. As an aspiring designer in high school, this is the kind of work that really shows what's possible. Way to go, and I hope to see more!

If you don't have a account over there, simply pm on here once it's time for payments and such and we will work it out that way. Thanks again for the interest guys. You can find the other thread in the members car gallery, same title.
