At what point does the extra weight outweigh (assumed) aero benefits?

About six inches directly behind his head with only a thin panel in between. If it doesnt cook his head it'll take it off when the turbo lets go. 300bhp from a K series!!!! It'll be like a grenade with the pin hanging out

Oh dear. Hope he doesn't go over any speed bumps, if the splitter is tough enough not to split into bits then the rear wheels will be hanging in fresh air lol

Now I am not into metal fabrication but are those uprights just two pieces of steel with no brace ? Maybe its his take on active aero ?

i run my turbo closer to the head than he does with no issues, i do agree regarding the car seems a little over kill in terms of aero!
