the rubber will sag over time..and the paint will eventually come off

i think you coulda done it better..looks like you did it on impulse

not somthing i would have ever done. the lip is already a crazy lookin lip, then to bolt some useless rubber strips to it seems kinda pointless. not to mention it was designed as is to be functional...if anything youve just hurt its functionality. but if you like it i love it.

i will say it wont matter if ya scrape in that particular section so at least it wont get damaged as easily.

Damn, there goes the wind-tunnel tested aerodynamics... sigh.. Now you got a useless ricer lip...no joke.

You should have got it repaired professionally... The lip is made out of urethane, and could be plastic welded and repaired. I had cracked my lip more than 2 times, and had it fixed. I am still on the same lip for over 8 years.

you know what bach, even though it sucks that it broke at least you fixed it and did your best with what you have. I'm saying this because it's an important skill for an engineering major lol

but yea...i don't think it'll last forever, but whatever it looks barely noticeable for now.
eitherway, cheers!

you know what Cody, I cut the lip intentionally. Everything was carefully designed and tough up. No matter what u people say, I still think this is the best face lift I ever did to my front end :clap:

i like it. Contrary to other people.. And I don't own a Gen3.. And they do... So I don't know how much my opinion matters lol =D

people have a problems with the fact that its not some R34 kit, or cyber kit which has no function or purpose. its the RMM lip wich is used and proved on race cars. he destroied it with home depot parts and some beer inspiration:lol:. i think it was retarded(which doesnt matter) but it isnt noticable and its not like he needs the down force anyways. plus if he likes it...well it was his money in the first place.:rolleyes:

And how fast do you have to go for it to produce beneficial downforce?

i think it was said that it started producing noticable force at around 70mph but dont quote me. it was discussed a long time ago. it works too. when done properly you can feel the added stability(from a ride in eye8pussies car). but many get it for its asthetics, which id agree with.

Let's not go backwards in time... We are supposed to get smarter, not dumber... LOL Search threads under my username and you'll find all the info regarding the RMM lip. It was a piece first seen on the Australian Touring Camry. It was wind tunnel tested and had data released from aero c/d, to the amount of air it can channel through the radiator and so forth. RMM was a company that took the mold and made it under their own name.

I am not trying to rag on anyone, but you don't need to go much faster than 60 mph to realize both the downforce benefits as well as better air circulation through the radiator and under the car. Just the reduction in c/d and lower frontal area along with its channels purposely directing air differently under the car will easily cut down wind noise, better fuel economy and much more stable steering above 70 mph. Camricer's ingenious idea simply elimated those two channels, so now his car is acting like an air scoop, crashing into any air that gets in its way. The side gills are now completely useless because it was supposed to guide and pull air out once it has passed through those front channels, cutting down any aero drag and virtually reducing the frontal drag area.

Lastly, it is no coincidence either when all the active front and rear spoilers on cars like Porsches, or a JDM Supra (active front spoiler), Carerra GT, etc.. all have their spoilers activate at 70 mph. I am sure many of you go 70+ mph on a regular basis, correct? Or am I wrong to assume that because all of you go 40 mph on the highway to work? :lol: :D

This is really interesting info. I'm wondering though, what's the difference in it comes to aerodynamics between the gen 3 RMM lip and the 3.5 RMM lip

that's easy...the gen3 is better.:smokin: that's all you need to know. :thumbsup:
































really though, what is the diference?

The 3.5 lip is not a functional design. So pretty much, that's the difference. :lol:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that is correct. Why did this thread get bumped anyway?
