So, having tagged a truck tire with my C5, the center section of the airdam
is buckled & I have to fit a replacement. It showed up today, thanks to UPS.
So, taking the airdam out the box, my impression is, it is so flimsy(?)
lightweight anyway, there is NO WAY that you can apply force on it, to
enhance the aerodynamic qualities of the car. The mounting brackets are so
slender, any force applied on them, would cause them to buckle very quickly.
As far as I can tell, the only point to the airdam, is to create airflow up
& through the radiator. If that is the sole reason for the airdam, is it
justified, living with hideous ground clearance, just so the Corvette
doesn't have to have a grille in front of the radiator ?
I love the shape of the front end of my 'vette. But I sometimes even scrape
my car driving along the street (there's a particularly bad dip on a
cross-street - Scottsdale, AZ where I can't do more than 3MPH (YES 3MPH - I
have found that out the hard way) or it scrapes).
Just a thought............Dave C.
