I have a r53 autocross car that has eaten 4 going on 5 rear fenders, I would love to get some that would hang out over my tires instead of colliding with them. Fiberglass seems like the most cost effective way IMO. But plastic would be awesome and you can add me to the extensive volunteer list because I will test the S**T outta these

i'm excited for this, are you thinking about molding the flairs to the existing side skirts or widening the side skirts as well, as a continuation of the flares?

The 'widebody' arch is designed so that the points at which it meets the bumper and side skirts are the same as stock. That way, they don't require any modifications to the other trim.

Does that answer the question? I'm not sure.

Just search for that race team's website. They sell the complete car kits and just the FG parts.
