NJ custom aero for mazdaspeed rx8's

so benny at buble tech is going to have my car soon and we might be coming up with some nice subtle aero for the mazdaspeed kit, starting off with a diffuser for the front, it will cover the entier under tray area as to eliminate it or just enforce the oem one. it will not stick out to much in the front, and goals are to be light weight but strong and be functional, and not break the bank, would you guys be interested in anything like this?? my car would be the test car since I'm closest to him. lmk what you guys think! john

Interested to see what you come up with. Would this be made specifically to bolt onto the Mazdaspeed front bumper or OEM too?

something like that but were going for a full diffuser so the entire size of the bumper plus the under tray that snaps to the main cross member, were trying to not bolt anything to the bumper it self as our bummpers are so rare, so a bracket system would be used to support the entire diffuser with out toucjing the bumper

and were looking for cost savings also, not every one will shell out big bucks, so were looking for a decent price that wont hurt the bank

Dang, I wish this had come around sooner, I ended up building one myself because my plastic one broke and to help support my rep mazdaspeed bumper (before I get flak for having a rep its because I'd rather damage a cheap, rubbery bumper instead of a rare and expensive authentic one when racing). I have support rods that bolt onto the crash bar and to right behind the bumper on the undertray, its actually pretty clean looking because they hide right behind the split between the center grill and the side oil cooler openings so from the front you can't see them (It also means it doesn't have to be directly attached to the bumper). That's just an idea to help ya'll if you decide to do it, that way it can support some downforce without stressing the plastic shielding that usually holds the tray. Just a thought, I'm still a newb so take it with a grain of salt
