Thanks for the kind words!
I would love to make a Road Runner or any other body style spoiler if I had
1) an existing spoiler to make a mold off of and
2) high enough demand for said spoiler

Hey everyone,
I have been getting emails if I will produce the ducted spoilers again. Unfortunately, back when I had ducted versions most people wanted a non ducted spoiler like the one mounted on my car so I changed the mold permanently to have no ducts. That being said the current spoilers still have the duct impressions on the back side that you can cut out and rivet or glue a flanged brake duct to. I have included pics to show you what I'm talking about.

you can faintly see the oval shape but it is still there

Front


I found this inexpensive brake duct that looks like it would work with the spoiler
Allstar performance ALL42141
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/aaf-all42141
http://www.amazon.com/Allstar-ALL42141-Single-Plastic-Cooling/dp/B006K8K8HG#productDetails

the dimensions are 9.5 x 5.6 x 4.8 inches which fits on the back side of my spoiler.

If I were to do it, I would cut out the duct shape and mount this flanged brake duct either with rivets or ABS glue.
That should make a solid duct and would be even easier to connect brake duct hose to than even the older ducted spoiler versions

Another option for ducting is to look at what's available from the local hardware stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, Sears, etc) in their shop-vacuum supply equipment parts. I've found a part at Hm Depot that can actually fit inside the Challenger T/A front spoiler sections (with very minimal massaging, and perhaps use epoxy glue to hold in place).... its only 2.5" diameter for the hose, but the unique advantage is that the duct tube is shaped at an angle (about 30~45 degrees) so that the hose can be attached and routed parallel to the ground. So, look at that option for also mounting to the cool AAR TransAm front spoilers. (You can purchase the 2.5" diameter hose from those stores, as well, in either 7' lengths or little longer. Or else, purchase racing duct in 2.5" diameter from racing outlets. I'd imagine that 2.5" diameter hose is sufficient for our maximum speed events where needed... unless you can get over 125 mph routinely.)

Thank you for the compliments,
I actually get quite a few thumbs up when driving around on the streets...American classic cars have a large following here, with numerous shows and gatherings. But not many owners really take their cars to the track - so when the flag drops, you're mostly up against Porsches, Alfas and BMWs...

Glad to hear it! Just seeing your car on the track, with the other European cars, looks surreal. I hope you keep on enjoying it and kick a few butts as well...

I'm looking for a front spoiler for a 70 Cuda. Do you have any left?
It's a killer look and they're difficult to find. I'm in Florida. Thanks!
