I would go with do-luck style rears and amuse super front fenders, duckbill or evo-r master grade rear diffuser, and maybe regular amuse front...

But I've got my own **** cooking in the oven. I just think the angles on the rear fender flare are straight up tacky.

That kind of sharp external angle doesn't work with any car cleanly, especially not such a subtle body line as the z33.

Bad. Just bad. Going to laugh at all the Cars that rock it though lol

I didnt like the fender vents either but honestly they are 100% functional. Youll see similar on every single WTAC car.
In order for everything behind the front wheels to operate well in the air.. you need as much turbulence and pressure out of the wheel well as possible.. dunno. just my 2 cents.. zero argument tho lol.. i think the kit came out cheap enough for anyone to cop one.. and they will... and the individual pieces alone are cheap as sin..

its like 1200 bucks for all 4 flares lol.. thats insane cheap.
I'm not a aero designer but I thought the fender vents need to be on top to truly be functional for turbulence purposes:

Another example of a very highly designed car with functional top mounted fender vents:

This kits vents would help with cooling but I doubt anyone cares about either points

Would look funny to me without the vents on this kit, I think they are done well

Can you imagine driving an open top fender car on the street? Every puddle or rock would go flying everywhere

This ISF might have benefitted from a few top vents.

You're totally right. The vents on the RB z33 are totally visual. Not functional at all. Most vents on most fenders are just visual.

that's something i most afraid off....that nobody ever tested them if they are functional or just do the same thing with your car as with the ISF!!

Not really feeling the design or finish, centercap logo looks like Mopar. Weren't they supposed to look like the rs055r? Was looking forward to that idea. Congrats nonetheless.

Installing a body kit isn't a build ffs. Its sanding, filler, sanding, and more sanding. Some cutting and drilling.


As for that Lexus, the reason it went airborne is because of reverse rake, not because of fenders. The car lifted its nose up at speed and enough air got under it to send it up.

I would never personally run those wheels... But they sure look like they will be impressive on the car. Goodluck

Wheels are fresh. Not sure however if they will be aggressive enough just going by these pics.
